So for God’s sake, start acting like it.
You know, pop a cork. Whistle. Fire off a warning shot to Checker Cab.
Unrelated: we really need to get your closet ready for winter.
And with that, consider this your formal invitation into the Five Mile Club, a members-only website and soon-to-be brick-and-mortar spot dedicated to bedecking you in all things Southern, outdoorsy and winter-ready, online now and opening up shop in Athens on December 1.
This is the story of three young investment bankers who decided that opening a Kennedy-inspired, Hemingway-esque wonderland filled with flannel, bushman hats and wool sweaters (and the occasional taxidermy wildebeest) sounded a lot more fun than talking about hedge funds.
But about that website. After you’ve gone online and requested a membership (spoiler alert: you’ll get one), you’ll have carte blanche access to all the Barbour Polarquilt jackets and Woolrich utility vests Mother Nature’s less hospitable side requires.
The kicker: they’ll only be featuring one specific brand every two weeks (Filson, Southern Proper...). The other kicker: they’ll be knocking off up to 70% on most of it.
Or you could just show up to the store in Athens in about a week and a half (or, say, before a UGA game) and do your thing there. Head upstairs and shoot some pool. Grab a nip of something at the bar...
Come on, there’s not not going to be a bar.
