Hey folks. I’ll be moving along some of the pieces from my collection that don’t see as much use as they should. I’ve had most of these over fifteen years and have been well taken care of. First up is a beautiful Pearl gray Knox Fifteen on eBay.

I was saddened to wake up to this news yesterday. Dan was one of the NYC locals who was always good company and knowledgeable on a variety of topics.
He leaves behind a huge group of friends that will miss and keep him in their thoughts.
This was terrible news to wake up to today. Dan was one of the old time Fedora Lounge / NYC guys I used to meet up for lunch with in the mid to late 2000s. He was always an affable guy. I never heard him say a bad word about anyone.
Condolences to his family and many friends. He will be missed.
My personal dislike about the color or accessories aside what makes the suit look awful IMHO is the fit and appearance of the material. The fit is god awfully tight and feels like it would be so uncomfortable to wear. The suit material looks so cheap.

I have always respected Houdini using his name, celebrity, and vast understanding of his craft to expose spiritual hucksters whose sole aim was to defraud a susceptible public. I cringe when I see these same crooks today attempting the same old scam.
I have the Red Wing Weekender Chukka and LOVE them! Comfortable right out of the box and only feels better with use. I can wear them all day and do a lot of walking and never think about my feet. The run slightly large, I went down 1/2 size.
They're a pricer than Clark's. I've been thinking...
Looks like you know what you're doing so I'm probably not saying anything new. Two pieces of 3mm leather ends up being stronger than one pice of 6mm. Go figure.
Kudos to you for doing the saddle stitching by hand! I've done a bit myself and it is no small feat. A tip of the hat to you for...
