A Magical Experience as we return back to the lab: After a beautiful weekend which started Friday with The Bearded Man and Gigi taking a quick day trip to Hartford,Connecticut to meet with a friend who gave them an inside perspective of her billion dollar franchise (no cameras allowed). This was followed the next day (Saturday) by our favorite past time of antique and vintage shopping, ending Sunday with a very much needed relaxed family day. Well, the beautiful weekend is over and we are headed back to the lab to finish our Spring 2010/Summer 2010 collection. Part of the team is heading back to the sales floor to hear your weekend stories, while the buying crew from NY and SF are packing their bags for “sin city” Las Vegas baby. Yep! it’s that time of the year again, trade show time. Four days of collections and shows to attend, the hot Vegas sun, more slot machines than a strip club and so much sin that heaven put a block on calls from Vegas. Stay tuned for our coverage of the apparel trade shows in Las Vegas this week. Yep! The BKc Style + Character & The Hundred Year Plan . . .

The BKc Motors co, Ladies Welcome : Sham & Gigi send their blessings to all the ladies to join the fellas on the road. After hearing that father Bev was selling his car and looking into getting a motorcycle, Sham thought she would start doing some research to see what bike would suit her best should she too decide to join The Bearded Man and Woody on the road. Sham started her search by flipping through “Harley Davidson: An Illustrated History.” There were too many styles for her to decide which one she liked the most, the next step is to just test ride a few. While doing her research she of course made sure that she completed her collection by grabbing any of the new “The BKc Motors co.” tees we have available. Yep!

The BKc, Future Archives: As we work and dream of living out “The Hundred Year Plan” we came across this picture on our favorite designer’s Matt & Jon of onetwenty six blog. This is exactly how we envisioned the entrance of The BKc Archive twenty years from now as we continue our efforts to revolutionize Style + Character. “If there is any period one would desire to be born in, is it not the age of Revolution; when the old and the new stand side by side…when the glories of the old can be compensated by the rich possibilities of the new era? This time…is a very good one, Ralph Waldo Emerson. ”Yep! The BKc Style + Character & The Hundred Year Plan . . .
