Black Box Denim Custom Jeans

How would you like custom made jeans that fit no matter your size? Black Box Denim is setting out to be the next stylish custom made jeans company for guys and gals. However, they need your help! Right now they are running a Kickstarter campaign to get the necessary funding.

Join in with myself and Tall Swag as we have both pledged to this campaign.  I’ve pledged at the level that I will be getting one of the first pairs of custom made jeans from this company.  However you can pledge at any level starting at $1. If you have 10 friends that want a pair of jeans, you can join together and pledge $1000, thus each getting a pair for $100. This is a great deal!

Here’s a sneak peak at a pair of Black Box Denim Jeans.

My last pair made by Indi Denim,  {sadly now out of business}, was my favorite pair of jeans ever as the fit was perfect! So supporting these types of companies that create awesome fitting products is HUGE!

Hurry and pledge now as there are just 14 days for this company to raise their goal of $25K and they are at the 10K mark right now! View more custom clothing companies here.

Breast Cancer Awareness Products

October is breast cancer awareness month. We all know someone that has been affected by breast cancer. My aunt Faye died of breast cancer at the age of 50 and as a young girl watching her struggle, left a big impression on my life! She fought a courageous fight with a positive attitude.

We can make a difference this month by purchasing products that donate a portion of their proceeds back to breast cancer research.

Mens Tall Cargo Pants

This tall personal shopping request is via my own own Mr. Tall. He asked me to find him tall cargo pants. He owns an auto parts store and needs lots of room to carry all of his stuff. He basically lives in cargo shorts, but now that the weather is getting colder, he’s frustrated with lack of pockets. This is not my favorite style of pants, but when you don’t want to carry a man bag around, they serve a purpose.

I know several of you may also like tall cargo pants for work or hiking pants, so I’ve compiled the big list here.
