Can anyone verify this? Everything else looks right to me, but I've never seen one with the back so sloppy. Was it repaired or is it fake? Loop is present.

OK, this is just ridiculous. Help a Brit here...

When on earth did Virginia / West Virginia, Kentucky, Maryland, etc ever get considered southern states? They are no where near the south. Is DC then southern as well given proximity to at least two of four states above?

Also why are Arizona and New Mexico not considered south? Geographically they certainly are.

Is this southerness related to "attitudes"? Political allegiances? Percentage of pop. going to evangelical churches? Number of folks listening to bluegrass / country music?

What defines South? It certainly aint geography by the seems of it.

The Civil War, mostly. Never heard Maryland called Southern really tho.

Yep, Maryland too. South of the Mason Dixon line = southern....but techically MD was a divided state in the Civil War. You should hear how some of the folks here used to badger me (from MD) when I moved to PA. 

 

According to my family tree, my great great great great grandfather and his 3 brothers fought in the civil war. 2 fought for the Union, 2 fought for the Confederacy.

The United States Census Bureau disagrees with you.

Pfft. Texas is Texas. It is its own kind of weird.

I prefer the BBQ meat method of determination. If the BBQ meat of choice is something other than pork, it's not the South.

Speaking of the Civil War.....

 

I spotted a guy wearing a hat today that I'm certain he bought at the Goodwill in town (I saw it there a few days ago).

 

I went to the library and saw a guy wearing a Civil War style hat (think Confederate Army) sitting down reading a magazine as I walked through.

Looks right to me. I like it a lot.

Just found an Hermes myself 30 minutes ago. One of the more restrained patterns I've come across. Needs to be retipped, though I may just wear it as is.

I'm Welsh, though I've lived in Atlanta for the last dozen years or so. An authority by no means.

DC has been described as having Southern efficiency and Northern charm, so there's that at least.

Arizona and New Mexico are generally considered the Southwest, not the South. In my experience, people tend not to lump Texas in with the South, and leave it to its own thing.

same reason Minnesota is considered midwest even though it's nowhere near the west:



edit: Wisconsin is even worse:



edit 2: OHIO



btw LA dudes, if you're ever on a road trip on the 10 east going through phoenix, there are several waffle houses that are right along the freeway in west phoenix.

The Midwest consists of the Old Northwest, and the states that came out of that territorial expansion.

I like that method....let's see how it plays out....

 

Maryland: Chicken.....not south.

Pennsylvania: Potato Chips.....definitely not south.

 

On that note....you know how hard it is to find a decent batch of grits up here?....or any batch of grits for that matter.

I feel a major, heated digression coming on, so I will just say: In before we start talking about guns again.
(And I side with Austin's decision to secede from the secessioninst Texan Republic)


Anywho, met up with HMMurdock today. Great guy. And I have him to thank for some nice finds. I will try to get some better shots later tonight, but a couple of items are indisposed at the cleaners/cobblers, so it would be an incomplete catalog anyway. In addition to the aforepictured kitten (again, POP!), I also found a pair of AE Park Aves in great shape, a pair of Florsheim longwings in tobacco that will look awesome once cleaned up, 3 Battistoni shirts (but put 2 back due to damage), 1 trafalgar belt, 1 nice coach belt, and this:

Pretty sure it's the real deal. Edges were very, very well hand-rolled and the material/mrf tags said all the right things. It's ENORMOUS. But what gets me is how DEAD STRAIGHT the hand rolled edges are. If anyone has ever tried to hand roll a pocket square and keep the edges straight, you know how hard that is. Stupid crappy blackberry camera! (Click to show)
