Happy Black (Velvet) Friday with Chubbies

Happy Black Friday Y’all! While we could give you a list of the best deals on the interweb  for today, we have something very special right here just for you! Well for three of you…

Our favorite shorts company in the universe, Chubbies, is debuting their very first Tuxedo short just in time for the holidays. There are way too many ‘jingle bells’ references we could make and Kmart owns that this season anyways but these little numbers will sure to get you merry making. The boys over at Chubbie Town are rolling out five color ways: Navy, Bright Blue, Kelly Green, Crimson and Black for the holiday party season.

Now we know some of y’all may be scratching your heads, but we have readers in warmer climates like Texas, California, Florida and Mexico (Ole!) who are in need of some festive shorts gear to rock this holiday season. And for you boys living in the cold, we double dare you to roll out in these cozy formal shorts for the staff holiday shin dig. We guarantee you will be in too many Instagrams to remember and people will be talking about ‘The night ole Paul wore those Tuxedo shorts in the snow’ for decades.

watch saves man who fell overboard islands surrounded by boats

We talk a lot about the importance of wearing a watch. It is an elegant way to show class and sophistication. Since World War II, they have been the go-to men's accessories. While women wear everything from bracelets to rings, necklaces to earrings, men keep it simple, and many of us opt for a watch. But a watch can be more than just an elegant piece of jewelry; it can be a tool, something you can use to get the job done. And in one very interesting instance, something that can save your life.

Cambridge 61-year-old Will Fransen embarked on a fishing trip off the coast near the Alderman Islands, and it turned into a nightmare. After snagging what he expected was a marlin, Fransen fell overboard. As they do, the boat starts to drift away from him, and he soon realizes that he isn't going to be able to catch it.
