Speaking of books, if any sees any "The Whole Earth Catalog"s out there, I'm willing to pay a finder's fee. smile.gif

There are several variations out there such as "The Last Whole Earth Catalog" and "The Whole Earth Epilogue" which I already have. I just need the first "The Whole Earth Catalog".

While we're on books, I am always on the lookout for Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking." If anyone finds a copy to pass on?

David Mason is family. I worked in one his bookstores as a teenager. A very interesting guy and a very interesting book.

Weird Tie Day. A few firsts.

 

Paul Smith / Prada / Dunhill / Brooks x 2 / Zegna

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unfortunately the side points are worn through on the Dunhill. If i liked it better I'd open it up and narrow it (although that takes it into Mad Men territory).

Is that something you do yourself, or, have someone do for you (and, if the latter, about how much does it cost)?  I ask because I passed on a Burberry made in Italy nova check tie the other day, that had the side points and tip worn, otherwise was fine...

I'm glad that I went back for it though.


Pics!!! If I had that, I would rock it with raw jeans, brown shoes (white is cool, too), check or stripe shirts, and keep it casual! Oh yeah, don't forget the pocket square. You can't look like an Igent without one! But most importantly, gotta slick that hair back for bonus Igent points!!!

I'll keep an eye out.

Have you ever checked out Foxfire Magazine? It's more of a series of journals or books and is filled with old-time/backwoods skills and knowledge like how to slaughter and dress a hog, how to make greenwood furniture, etc... Perfect for back to nature or preparing for the apocolypse.

I do it myself. It's really very simple.

 

Check out:

Best eight bucks I ever spent.

Huh - whaddaya know about that!  Interesting, though now that I think about it, my Mom is a somewhat renowned miniature (and full-size) quilt maker, and has worked with silk from ties before.  Next time I see a candidate I'll pick it up and ask her if she thinks she can remake it.  If not, I might check out that downloadable e-book.  Thanks!

Thanks! Never read the magazine - din't even know there was one. I'd love to get a hold of some of those early issues! I do however have the Foxfire books. #'s 1-3 in a box set, just like the one below. Great reading - very informative.

Reunited my first suit today (Hickey Freeman Loro Piana Super 120s) only to find a trio of holes in the back. Also left a Corneliani, awesome tweed orvis with throat latch and elbow patches, and some other tweed jacket, all with holes.

Man, I left a Vineyard Vines yellow polo in my size (S) today because I already have a yellow polo by someone else (forgot whose). I've gotten to the point where I don't want more than one of anything since I have SO MUCH already. I've stopped buying on principle cuz no one ever seems to want what I buy.
