9 to 5.

I grew up in a blue collar community on the south side of Chicago and I'm very proud of this fact and any warm blooded Chicagoan would understand. As knee deep as we can be in that city by the lake we make the best of what we got and we get.

Both my parents were middle class working folk and I did not realize the value of the indispensable until my 20s. My father being a carpenter would have much to say on this. I value the things I carry and the clothes right off my back. 

The things that get you through the day are the things that do not fail you. 

The 9 to 5 are about those things. Take a seat, crack open a beer because we're here to talk about the shoes you lace up to goods you lather in your hair to ensure you look and proper even when you're not. 

Cheers!
