You know when you’re on the bus and wearing headphones with your face buried in your Kindle and some dude will not stop talking to you? “Whatcha reading?” “Watcha listening to?” You try to be polite and tell him you’re not interested but he won’t let up.

Maybe you should check out the Dean Pullover. Maybe you’ll love it and want to wear it every day.
It’s not summer yet, but you should prepare your closet for the heat that will descend upon us in a few months.

Ransom Holding Co.
