    For Sale: Casio ProTrek Triple Sensor Watch

    Looking to find a new home for my Casio Protrek Watch (triple sensor: Altimeter, Barometer, Compass) that was purchased in 2014 at Kohls. I think I paid about $100 for the watch and am selling it for $55 shipped CONUS by USPS priority. This is a great watch for travel and adventures! Will try to...

    For Sale: A Piece of Gillette Marketing Americana

    Several years ago I came across several of these mailers that I suppose were never delivered. The letter inside is introducing the Gillette Super Blue Blades and is dated February 8, 1960. The sample of Blue Blades are still wrapped in cellophane and the mailer is in really good shape. This is...

    The Thin Blue Smoke Thread VII- BBQ at the B&B 2015

    I have the WSM fired up taking the Auber PID for a ride, with 2 pork tenderloins on. For Memorial Day we did a 7.5# butt that took 17 hours...but it was so dang good.

    My First Pair of Chukka Boots.they required some elbow grease!

    Sort of, I think. They are similar in the sense they are creams, but I think they serve different purposes. I like the fact the AE has pigment, but Reno is good for general conditioning...different strokes for different folks!

    My First Pair of Chukka Boots.they required some elbow grease!

    I have never owned a pair of chukka boots before; I don't know why...I just never fancied them. Well I stumbled across a pair on eBAY and put in a low-ish bid on a pair of brown shell cordovan Allen Edmonds Dundees. The boots themselves looked a little rough (scratches, but no scuffs/cuts/nicks)...

    Chippewa Chocolate Apache boots (USA Made) - treated and polished ($150)

    This is interesting, and they look great. My LP looks much more loose than the OP's...it is less a solid and more a vasaline consistency.

    Cowboy Boot Repair

    That idea crossed my mind, but Lucchese only re-crafts some of their boots. These are 1883s and would not qualify for that service :(

    Cowboy Boot Repair

    Hi guys, Got a pair Lucchese Ropers off of d'bay and aid $50. They are the 1883s, so US made but nothing special. They need soles and heels, and I wasn't sure who you would recommend. I have had good luck with B Nelson, but their boot repair is $165 which seems high given the purchase price of...

    Best Time to Buy Suits at Brooks Brothers?

    Hi guys I have my eyes on a few new suits (workhorse kinds of suits), and I am kind of funny shaped (50R). I like wool suits, and was looking at the 1818 line at Brooks Brothers. What's the best time/way to maximize my value for my suit purchase? Friends and Family sales?

    The current, best option: Razor Replating

    Since it is Movember, I am thinking about sending in my Fatboy for a replating/tune-up. It has been a while since I looked into this type of service, so who all would you recommend?
