Editor's Picks: The Best
Exactly one year ago today, running extremely behind deadline and not knowing what was going wrong with this new-fangled Internetting machine software, I wrote the first edition of Editor's Picks for Promo Marketing Threads. Three-hundred and sixty-some-odd days later, I am running extremely behind deadline and do not know what is going wrong with this old-and-busted computer. Time goes so fast.
In the age-old editorial traditions of highlighting the best old content to commemorate an anniversary, I've gone though the archives and selected my favorite products from a year of Editor's Picks. I picked my top Picks so you can have some Picks in your Picks. You're welcome.
Adding a little couture to camo, the Junior's Camouflage Striped Burnout Raw Edge Long Sleeve Zip Hoodie from Kavio has more going for it than an exceptionally long name. Two-tone pattern, reverse coverstitching, slit pouch pockes and a soft 4.2 oz. fabric make this camouflage stand out.

Back in Blues Brothers
Everything in the '80s is back, and nothing is quite as cool as Wayfarer-style sunglasses like these RB Acetate Sunglasses from Fields Manufacturing. The thick black-framed glasses are 100 percent UV protective and feature a 0.25x1.5" imprint on the frame. They can also be special ordered with blue or red frames, but good luck finding a skinny blue tie to match.

Cribs 4 Life
Blue for boys and pink for girls are the original gang colors. Make sure your littliest represent with Infant Camo Caps from L.A. T Sportswear. All joking aside, these great caps also support a great cause: two percent of all Code V line sales go to the Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund Inc. and Fisher House Foundation.

Easy on the Eyes
There's nothing a man can wear that can't be improved by adding a sharp blazer. Executive Apparel makes dressing up an outfit easy with the Easywear Blazer, a single-breasted, two-button jacket with a center vent and three-button sleeve. It's available in a number of colors including navy, black, and gray.

Make The Cut (Or At Least Pretend You Did)
A high school favorite, varsity jackets are now in fashion for every demographic. Cullinz Creek's Varsity Black Lettermen Jacket is a more modern take on the classic style, with a warm wool body and leather sleeves all in black. Also available in ladies' and youth sizes, the jackets keep the traditional varsity look while adding contemporary conveniences like cell phone pockets and stitch-free lining.
