Show Notes

When we discover something we love at The Nod, we’ve gotta share it with the fam. Eric’s close friend, a self-proclaimed “glo-up artist,” explains how a piece of clothing changed his life forever. And Eric shares something he just can’t stop thinking about.


To read Jon's tips on how to pick the perfect pair of white jeans and keep them clean (and to see a photo of Jon in his full glo-up attire... which includes a fur coat), subscribe to our newsletter.
