Wednesday Stir

By Doug Zanger 

-Those of us in northern climes are in the throes of one of the most glorious holidays of the year. Of course, we’re talking about Transition to Fall Woolens season, which doesn’t have official dates, yet should be an official thing. But we digress. To help those who need a little more oomph in their warmer-weather haberdashery, Duluth Trading debuted 40 Grit, a new, lower-priced men’s basics line. Think flannels, waffle shirts, etc. With AOR Planet Propaganda, the brand launched some new work to support the collection. There’s no word on whether or not the brand and agency will have new ads to celebrate the upcoming hygge season, but we’ll keep you posted because this is a valuable service we’re more than happy to provide.

-Art! Fashion! Activism! Walrus (they of awesome holiday T-shirts) launched a new line of politically tinted clothing and accessories with L.A. Magazine editor-in-chief Maer Roshan. AgitPop was designed by Edel Rodriguez, who you might know from various illustrated covers of Donald Trump in places like Time.

-The Richards Group ended up on the Motel 6 naughty step. Badly.


The Drum made a video. And it’s … something.

-More on The Martin Agency’s talent recruiting adventure for seven new clients.

You can be a DJ on Spotify. Sort of.

-The argument against getting all excited about 5G.
