    Goodyear Weatherproof Clothing

    Had never heard of it. Thanks! And that is a remarkably beautiful illustration. One of the finest I've ever seen used for an ad.

    Goodyear Weatherproof Clothing

    I believe I saw a date for this small catalog of 1921, but I can't find it again. As I suspect some know, Charles Macintosh developed the first widely practical rubberized clothing by impregnating cloth with rubber that had been dissolved in coal-tar naptha. Sometime later Goodyear Rubber...

    Walking Sticks & Canes.

    I applaud your sanity in placing the priority on function. Like you, I am stick dependent, but convinced that hope can overcome experience. I am determined to find effective functional/aesthetic compromises. The net effects of which are that I drop my stick a lot, not finding purposeful straps...

    Hawaiian Shirts - Aloha Shirts

    While it's possible to button the top button of a Tori Richard shirt, I couldn't possibly imagine wearing a tie with it, irrespective of fabric. It's cut, construction and attitude are entirely Alhoa shirt. Nice shirt! :cool:

    Hawaiian Shirts - Aloha Shirts

    Yes, markedly. I'm a dedicated fan of Tori Richard cotton lawn shirts. Cotton Lawn is inherently one of the lightest and coolest of cotton fabrics. In addition, Tori Richard has a proprietary finish they use that adds a measure wrinkle resistance, while actually increasing the wicking...

    I like them. Rugged, casual, comfortable moccasins, but with a serious all weather sole. Should handle light snow, slush and and rough terrain easily.

    rr Herring has provided the best customer service of any on-line European retailer with which I've dealt. They ship via DHL Express, and I've literally received orders within a day or two of ordering them on-line. I've also been pleased with the quality of the shoes they sell, and find that...

    My last acquisition was a pair of house brand tassel loafers from UK retailer Herring. They offer this model in 7 different cow derived hides, plus crup/cordovan. They are modestly priced, but I ended up with a lot more shoe than I expected. I wanted a brown suede pair. They are fully leather...

    Men's Cologne / Men Of ( STYLE ) THE FEDORA LOUNGE What Are You Wearing ?

    But I believe it is an EDT rather than cologne.

    Great pair of loafers! Loake still makes a nice pair of shoes. Pity they prohibit their UK retailers from selling mail order in the U.S. A very handsome last, IMHO. Some wearers of loafers may experience some heel slippage, particularly while they're breaking in. If so, a stick-on tongue pad...

    Great pair of pennies! Loake still make a fine shoe. Too bad they prohibit their UK retailers from selling mail order in the U.S. This is a handsome last, IMHO. Some gents experience a bit of heel slippage when wearing loafers particularly as they're breaking in. If so, a stick-on tongue pad...
