You can only buy it by the case where we live in PA, and I buy one case every year at Christmas. He drinks 2 to 6 of them and then it takes me the rest of the year to force the vile shit down.

 

Same for me, everytime I go up to MD to visit with the inlaws I have to drink it. Luckily, the local beer shop started doing growler fills of some decent shit so I don't have to endure too much Natty Boh. I'm convinced there's actually no alcohol in it.

Impulse buy.
No idea if these are worth anything.

A box of vintage seperate collars, and some marcella white bow ties.
Appear to be NOS and unused, although one of the collars has a slight crack.

Took it to our alterations lady and just got it back today.

Keep in mind this is not immediately noticeable when wearing the jacket as it is on the rear top of the shoulder. Lady told me she placed a new piece of leather below the rip, glued the ripped ends down and sewed the seam. I am pleased with the results as I love the jacket and now it is wearable. Jacket cost $10 and $20 for the repair so not a huge investment.
My question now is what to use to condition without darkening the color? I have lexol but hoped to get some thread expertise before I experiment. Looking to keep the color and just condition the leather. Won't be wearing it for at least 6 months.
Thank you.

I think she did a bang up job for 20 bucks to turn that into something you add to your own collection. Gives it a bit more of a story too.

I'm no leather expert, but I'd give the whole thing a light, gentle massage with some Lexol. Others might have better ideas.

We actually went from Spoo's liquor to beer to coffee. Kind of an evolution of drink if you will. Let's see what comes next.
