These TS Moto Boots are Handmade in Maine by Rancourt & Co with Natural Horween Chromexcel. But move on them with speed, as they’re getting funded for the next 9 days at a cool $398. Granted, that’s still a lot of cash but you could probably go and donate/sell plasma and offset the cost by a few bucks. I’m sure they’re other medical related parts and liquids of your body you could pawn off that I don’t feel comfortable advocating but parting with a kidney would most likely buy you all the boots your feet could handle.

You could buy these boots because they look rad or you could buy them because of how much fun it would be to say the word “chamois” like a pretentious dick whenever people ask you about them. Just don’t be like my friend Pete who studied in France for one fucking semester in college ten years ago and still tries to speak in his shitty French accent and talk about his semester abroad any time he gets the slightest chance to do so. We get it, Pete! Lyon has a long and storied culinary tradition and duck pâté just isn’t the same stateside.

While the illustrious 649’s origins are in sunglass form and date back to 1957 Turin tram-drivers, the updated optical version’s slimmed down profile (9649) has been my go-to glasses for many moons. And while plenty are familiar with the merits of Persol’s history in sunglasses, as the name Persol is derived from per il sole, which translates from Italian as, “for the sun,” I’ve never had a pair of eyeglasses that have stood the test of time in both beauty and longevity.
While I’ve owned my Havana frames for roughly eight years, the recently released Vintage Celebration colorations have me returning again to the iconic eyewear most likely for another decade or so of wearability. Head over to Smart Buy Glasses to scout the full inventory if you’re in need of an optical update.
Tonight as I pack my bags in anticipation of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail and bachelor party weekend for my future brother-in-law, I’m reminded of the importance of a good travel kit. The toilet bag (but let’s agree to never call it that for obvious reasons) is an often overlooked accessory in most men’s travel equipment. But when you begin to ponder the dopp kit’s job of keeping your toothpaste and shampoo from spattering all over the only clothing you have with you during travel, you quickly begin to reconsider the travel kit’s significance. If you’re in need of your own or due for an upgrade, give a look to the options in the Assemblage below and click out on the titles for more details and purchase info.
This RRL sweater/jacket is basically a indigo sweater that is cut like a vintage varsity jacket with an enzyme aging wash and jacquard knit in a birdseye pattern. You should buy this and never take it off just like my friend Larry did with his baseball letterman jacket in high school. He was mad allergic to cats so one night when he went to sleep we nabbed his jacket and cajoled a neighbors cat into the house and rubbed it all up and down the inside of Larry’s jacket. The next day dude broke out in some serious hives and his throat kind of closed up. We never told him, so I hope he isn’t reading this blog.

This morning I picked my bike up after a long stay with the mechanic and needless to say I am long overdue for a ride. As you can imagine, leather moto jackets have very much been on my mind. Whether you’re a motorcycle enthusiast or not, the black leather jacket can be worn well with or without an accompanying bike. If you’re in the market for your own, give a look to the 1o options in the Assemblage below and click out on the titles for more details and purchase info. And if you’re in the market for a motorcycle, very few have the gorgeous growl of a vintage BMW.
I dated this girl named Brandi in high school who would always want to go to McD’s and hit up chocolate milkshakes that she would then heavily spike with her Dad’s stolen Jim Beam. It sounds like rebellious fun and somewhat delicious but in actuality she would pour way too much Beam into the shake and pretty much pass the hell out while I’d drive around. After awhile it made me feel like I was simply a chauffeur for a narcoleptic high school cheerleader with severe alcohol problems. After we broke up I made it a rule to only take girls to Taco Bell.
