Chris Grodzki. Stanley & Sons apron and bag maker. Surfer. Craftsman. Brooklynite. Duder.

1)I am psyched on the new Woods album Bend Beyond and excited to see them play in NY next month. You can listen to the whole thing for free here: Bend Beyond

2) I’m psyched to be able to start eating warm food inside. In the summer it is too hot to turn on a stove let alone think about heat. Now that it is getting cold we will start having folks over and turnin’ up the heat.

3) I am looking forward to/I just brought a lot of our plants inside. Our room now is starting to look like a garden. Takes some getting used to but I am into it. It is like “Jumangi” in here. – cooooool.
Indeed. Thanks Chris. Shaka.

Every apron and bag made by Stanley & Sons comes directly from my pal Chris Grodzki’s studio in Brooklyn. Each made by hand and made to last. He’s a true craftsman and a hell of a nice guy. In his words, “I like it when the temperature drops back down to a reasonable number. Summer is for the birds. Everyone in Brooklyn seems much more pleasant when they are not complaining about air conditioners etc. ” Well said. Below, Chris’ Fall Three.

1)I am looking forward to camping upstate this fall and seeing the leaves change.

2)Finally having weather to wear my Perfecto Cashman jacket.

3)Michael Hurley’s new album, of old material just came out and he will be playing Brooklyn in October. I have been listening to Fatboy Spring(new album) constantly. Luckily it is only available in record format so I can’t over do it.
