What to Expect in 2022


The month we crash. 

The month I finally clean my holiday-season-neglected office and catch up on TV shows.

The month we escape to a warm location and play girls vs. boys, laugh-til-we-cry badminton with the kids.

The month we reflect on the amazing year that was 2021 and make plans to continue to grow in 2022.

Often, the month of January is the time we think forward: make goals, set the plans, and get excited at the ideas of what can be accomplished.

The Simple Man, as a shop/brand/people is no different. And we are excited to share just a few of what’s to come in the next year.


We have been scoping out some new vendors to mix things up in both our clothing and gift lines. 

And you may not have to wait long. Fair Harbor and Grayers shipments should be arriving in the next few weeks, so if you need to get out of the house, stop by and check out the spring arrivals.


We are continually trying to mix it up – to bring in things you may not expect.

Did you notice when you stopped in last that we now stock greeting cards? Check out my personal, NSFW favorite here

And if you haven’t tried the King Floyd’s peanuts yet, let me warn you – addicting. The dill pickle ones are my go-to during the afternoon. 

One other new and unique item we’d like you to know about – the Andean Alpaca Wool Blankets. I know it is different, but trust me, the winter is so much nicer with one of these. 

The Simple Man Merch

Beyond our branded shirts and hats, we plan to expand our TSM merchandise line.  Let me know what you’d like to see.  Drop me an email at Info@TheSimpleManStore.com or DM me on your favorite social post. 

If you know me, you know I tend NOT to stay inside the box. I am constantly thinking of new, edgy, not-what-you-might-expect items for The Simple Man.

2022: we still have the staples you have come to expect, but I hope you’ll love the new things we have planned.

I promise we’ll continue to surprise you.

It’s simple.

Another spring, another time of year we are knee deep in youth sports. And we only have one kid playing right now. I can’t imagine what you baseball families are experiencing where you have like, what….50 games ahead of you before July? 

Whether it is sports, drama, music or any club activity, when our kids are in it, we are in it. A sacrifice for all. And that makes it very personal, right?

You have heard me in many a blog, video or social-media post ask you to continue to support local, small businesses. Beyond my typical catch phrases like “to make a short story long” and “I can smell a lie like a fart in a car”, the one starting to be heard most often is “thank you for supporting small”.

Earlier this month, Em and I took a quick trip to Chicago to scope out new things for fall. I’ve mentioned before that finding the items for the shop is complex process that is a mix of exciting and very nerve-wracking. Many people have asked how this process works, so I wanted to give more details….paint you the picture, if you will.
