I will say he does appreciate luxury. He has a knack for only wanting to lick shoes that retail for over $350 and will ignore anything under that price point (not even kidding)

It's been a long time since I've posted something worth bragging about. Alden for Brooks Brothers Shell Cordovan (9016). Size 7 1/2 B/D and available.



Is this the beginning of a tear or just scuff?

Our emergency Plan B Vacation was a success. We did not get our money back in pocket for the first one, so funding was limited. So, I planned and surprised my wife with a 7 day pet friendly road trip in upstate NY.

 

Kept it under $600 on lodging and food....but my wife bought a shit load of wine and christmas presents...so.

 

Day One

 

Ruby's First Brewery - Four Mile Brewing Olean NY

 

 

Ruby's First Hotel

 

 

Day Two 

 

Niagara Falls (NY Side)

 

 

First Dog Park

Ellicott Creek Island Park near Buffalo - this place was incredible.

 

 

Victorian Haunted B&B 

Allegiance Bed and Breakfast - Luick Mansion, Mt Morris NY

 

 

 

Day 3-6 

 

Little Cabin in the Woods, - Hammondsport (Keuka Lake) NY

90 Acre Horse Farm, Surrounded by wineries.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Night 6 

 

One last Hotel on the way home.

 

 

Day 7

Thrift expansion kit.....but thrifting was sparse.

Nothing of any value, but an oddity for sure. Modern BDU jacket that states it's a hot weather jacket in Woodland camo, but appears to be a heavier-weight twill in Tiger Stripe camo.

One of my favorite bands. They've changed their style a bit over the years (blues-rock, progressive, folk-prog, etc), yet still had a distinct sound that you could pick out anywhere.

2. I want to lay on a couch with a cup of hot chocolate and that dog all winter long and never leave my house. Also, Monty was my grandpa's nickname. If your dog is anything like him, he'll be very quiet but yet somehow just racist enough to make you cringe whenever he makes any sound.

1. Me too, that thing is badass
2. He is pretty quiet and calm. As for the racism, he seems pretty accepting of everyone up to this point.


@hooker4186 here's a couple more. He's 16 lbs now. Will grow to around 90 lbs when mature

And, they were racking that shit... because they couldnt afford it, like my North Shore family here, who booked a Vermont ski trip two days after Christmas, bought the jacket for likely just that trip in 1989, and then it lived comfortably in a cedar closet in a 10,000 SF house, pristine and unworn, until Muffy decided to go to the closet and make a donation for charity.

On the other hand, Im friends with some collectors who have that same jacket that have (no shit, seriously) bullet holes and blood stains on it, because it was really a "suicide" jacket for his brother who got shot wearing it (but lived, thank god). these are the pieces that tell the urban war story, all the other stories that are a part of this generations youth. You saw that NES in box posted up there? Awesome as hell. Anyone who didnt get one under their Xmas tree (I did suckers, woooo) in 1991 would Kop that to "get back at their youth" as I think Frenchy said best.

Anyway, its also nice that they can turn you a profit, but theres a whole bunch of stories behind all this stuff, and for me, thats the fun part.

Yup Christmas of 91.ill never forget it .

Looked under the tree saw my name on a box.right size right weight.i was so happy I was gonna finally get to play Castlevania .

And then I unwrap it and it's a set of ten pound dumbbells.

My parents trolled me hard.

But at least it got me into lifting weights for the rest of my life so I guess it all worked out.

Late to the dog party. On my phone or I would quote as bunch of cool stuff. Love the Woolrich zipper. The tull tee. There's more but have dogs on the brain. My daughter sent me this pic of Fin one day:
he had counter surfed and grabbed a bag of candy corn when he had thought we left for work. I hadn't.
Also this:

Good dog.

When I was growing up my dad loved wearing random vacation shirts on vacation. Still something we mock him of naturally but when your successful enough you do whatever you want and just don't care ha. Fast forward to today and I'm taking my family to playa del Carmen next month and saw this pop for me and couldn't leave it behind when I've got the chance to be that guy in a vacation shirt next month ha....

Hell, I don't even know if I could bench press an NES right now. Sigh...
