    The two slits in the upper leather, below the tongue, are just wide enough to hold a penny in between them; the penny peeks out under them. Supposed to bring luck for exams (in a campus setting).

    Hello everybody
    Ok, this is my first post on this thread. I tried to look somewhat casual in these warm(haha) summer days. Here we go:

    I had a woman tell me once if they were really fancy they wore dimes or quarters! It is a good luck thing, started by college kids in the 40's. That little penny peeking out makes for a little extra flash!

    Hello RBH
    Tanks for your compliment. It's one of the first times i tried the tie-over-jacket-look, that Mario excellents in.
    The jacket is a 1940's Richman Brother's jacket. Middle-brown with light over-check, half-lined, middle-weight-wool. Perfect for summer, i think.

    Lovely Palm Sunday in Asheville - home on leave for 2 weeks!! Didn't feel bold enough to don spectators, but did go with a Panama hat and a springy tie!

    Looking sharp MB15. Welcome to the Lounge.

    Mountain Man, great look. Dare I say you have that dapper Country Doctor look about you there? You remind me of the family Doctor we had as I was growing up. He was one amazing person. Well done.

    Cheers!
