The Fall Three : Andrew Chen, 3Sixteen.

I’ve been wearing Andrew’s jeans for over two years. And by this, I mean a pair of 3Sixteens he got me into way back when. One of the nicest dudes out there, you can catch him most days down at Self Edge on Orchard st. or keep up with him HERE. Andrew was kind enough to indulge me in my request for his Fall Three. It is as follows:

1)Apple picking: We’ve made a habit of heading upstate to go apple picking at least once each Fall, but this is the first year that my wife and I are bringing a new addition to the family with us: our son Logan. There’s so much to love about spending a day at an orchard: seeing the leaves change, enjoying a hot cup of cider in the brisk air, and testing numerous apples to make sure they’re not poisonous.

2)Outerwear: The cooler weather brings about my favorite clothing items: boots and outerwear. This Flat Head varsity jacket was the lone item that all three Self Edge partners (myself, Kiya and Johan) bought last year. Since then, we asked Flat Head to custom make additional letters to spell out our shop name and have affixed them to our respective jackets. I’ll be wearing this quite a bit in the coming months.(Ed.Note: #Dope)

3)Football: I love football season and am so thankful that the lockout ended. The year round anticipation that builds while following draft picks, player additions and defections all comes together in the fall season. I especially enjoy seeing unexpected players step up and fulfill roles their coaches and fans never expected.

+1)Because the new Giants stadium has priced me out of tickets, I enjoy each game from the comfort of my home and I’m just fine with that. Plus, it gives me the perfect excuse to make a pot of chili.

    Perfect fall 3. Though I would add suds to the chili. Nothing like chili and a hoppy winter ale.

    Part of the fun of this recipe is that it’s just a starting point. I’ve tried it with some coffee (something earthy, a south american single origin works well). I’ll have to give beer a shot next time.
