    For Sale: A Piece of Gillette Marketing Americana

The sample of Blue Blades are still wrapped in cellophane and the mailer is in really good shape. This is...

    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)...

    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...

    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?

    Well, another year of the annual AE Tent Sale has come and gone. This year I was offered the flyer for an extra 50% off my purchase so I made my way up to Port Washington on Sunday.

    I want some roper boots.calling all owners

    I want to get some roper boots, mostly because I don't like the higher heel on my cowboy boots.

Justin has a few...

    Any recommendation for a place that will dye shoes?

    I have a pair of AE Hancocks in Merlot that I don't wear, mostly because they are Merlot. I would love to have them dyed black, but my local cobbler has been sloppy recently. I know I could do this myself, but I rather pay for someone to do it correctly. I checked B Nelson and they did not...

    Cordovan Rider Boots- In hand

    Awhile ago I ordered some shell cordovan boots from Rider Boot Co in Virginia. They were on a super sale so I thought I would take the chance and order them. There were some requests for pictures so they are attached. The fit is great, and I love the walnut color!

    My Omega Seamaster Has Died

    My graduation gift in 2004, and Aqua Terra Seamaster with the 2500 movement has died after 10 years of faithful use. I can't manually wind it and when the rotor moves the second hand moves for about 5 seconds and then it stops. I know the coaxial movement can be finicky, but I guess it is off to...

    Did I score on these Rider Company Boots?

    I just happened to stumble on to the Rider Company website today, and saw the cordovan boots were marked down significantly. So I picked up the only 10.5Ds they had left, these handsome walnut cordovan boots. I think $395 plus shipping was a great deal, but I don't know much about Rider Boots so...
