I have a bunch of pairs of their spooky socks, but I see they don't have any of those up right now. Pretty excellent... Soft and wash well. Can't comment on the Wally and Pepe socks that they have on the site now though.

I'm feeling a new beginning. Time to profit from this damn obsession.

Do you have an idea of what you want to do or just taking a class to explore options?

I need to prototype a bag for a Kickstarter.

More men than ever are carrying small bags. Only there really aren't enough solid options between high-end designer and rubbish. I want to work in that middle ground of quality and anonymity. Or at least give it a shot. I need a hobby!

Make a small, low-key hobo sling bag and you'll be my hero.

Actually it didn't fail me. It failed the guy in Japan who sold it to me on auction without mentioning that the zipper didn't work. Now it's just been sitting in my closet. I guess I need to have it replaced but I don't have a good tailor.

I hear there's space in the market for suede daypacks that actually get made and delivered when ordered.

i have some our legacy tweed pants that look good but are really itchy. They are half lined in the front, but given that I sit down at work, that doesnt really cut it. Does it make sense to fully line them (i.e, is it an expensive procedure), or better to just get rid of them?

So what kind of class is it? A friend of mine started making bags a couple years ago, handmade by him and he sources out sewing with acquaintances. He makes a living and his bags are carried in stores internationally. Simple hiking type travel bags. He didn't take a any college classes regarding fashion, though.

First project is going to be my take on a drawstring bag.

Really, there aren't any decent minimal hobo bags out there either?

It's a bag patterning/cutting class that gives an overview of a myriad of styles and techniques. You get to work with a few people with around a decade of experience in the industry. I'll probably take a leather working class at some point too. Learning from experts saves tons of time.

Calf looks way better (in my humble opinion). Who makes it?
