Been a busy week but a lot of fun. Started out in L.A. on Monday and Tuesday for meetings and 2 DMB shows!!! DMB played the final two nights of their 2007 summer tour at the Hollywood Bowl. The highlight of the two shows by far was John Mayer joining DMB for song #41. Song #41 is one of my favorites. I even put #41 on one of our hats in the DMB tour collection. It was great to get to spend some time with a few of my friends in Los Angeles. Thanks again to the entire DMB family for being so awesome!!
I flew back to Phoenix on Wednesday, right in time to go to my first baseball game in 2 years. Thanks to our old friends at MLB, I got to go check out game 1 of the Cubs/Dbacks series. The result of the game was not good for my Cubs. The italian sausage and the meatball "sangwiches" from the Hungry Hill stand, was by far the highlight of the game!
To finish out the week of concerts and sporting events I went to the Coyotes/St. Louis Blues hockey game on Thursday. My good friend Ryan Johnson plays for the Blues. It was good to catch up with RJ after the game for a bit. RJ and the rest of the Blues will be rocking the Sportiqe/Blues t-shirts that will be on sale at all the home Blues games this year. Get them quick.
The fall collection is finally in. I have been testing out some of the new looks that I will be sporting this fall. One of the early favorites is our long sleeve grey tri-blend underneath our short sleeve polo shirts. I really dig the layered look. In 4th and 5th grade, one of my favorite looks was wearing a short sleeve polo underneath a crew neck sweatshirt. 20 years later....I think it's time to bring that look back. Our COACH crew neck sweatshirt is the perfect sweatshirt to throw on over our polo......Wouldn't it be cool to also have a v-neck sweater to throw on over our polos or soft t's???? Check back this holiday season..
Currently we're finalizing our Spring '08 collection. I am really fired up about the way that some of the pieces are coming in. Details soon to come....
I'm going to try an catch up on some sleep. Vegas on Monday. Have a feeling that I won't be sleeping much.
Thanks again for reading. Talk to you all soon.
