    1. Your pics are amazing, the rustic-ness is so awesome with that trunk as a prop. Well done.
    2. Is this tie available?

    Hey thanks for saying so, mang! And, yeah, I typically don't take the time to snap pics of stuff I'm keeping so if I posted it and didn't say "NA" it's available.

    Just got back from a week of vacation where I did as little Internet as possible. Ain't got time for 1100 new posts - did I miss any grails or mindsploding hauls? :)

    This was me last week:

    Actually, that was like 2 hours of last week. Most of it was dealing with this little sand monster.

    Hey guys... If any of you go through shoe trees as fast as I do, take advantage of JAB's buy 1 get 2 free sale today and tomorrow! Great Woodlore trees for only $8.33 per pair! Spend $50 and get free shipping. Plus, their waxed laces are high quality and make great replacements. They are only $1 per pair. (sorry to sound like a JAB fanboy)

    I find shoe trees at Estate sales. I do have several pair of JAB shoe trees and they are very nice! But, I am constantly in need of shoe laces! Thanks, @drlivingston

    I generally hold out for their Buy One get a Franchise Free sales, and stock up. But their trees, and other woodlore products are top notch.

    I love that sale, I stocked up last time.
    There was a JAB mega dump at a GW this morning. The labels had been removed, but I pulled out the collar stay on a shirt and saw the logo. Easily 5% of the menswear shirts and 10% of the pants on the rack right now is new JAB.

    New? Wow. I will admit, I actually like the Traveler Dress shirts. Were the sizes removed?

    All the stores around here have at least one full rack of New JAB, all with the labels and sizes removed. Kinda dumb. lol.
