    Bespoke Gatsby Caps

    Hey gang! I've been searching for days to find my old post about the firm that makes bespoke Ivy Caps, Flat Caps, Gatsby Caps, Newsboy Caps, or whatever you like to call them. As far as I can tell the thread was deleted. So I spent a couple of hours scanning my email in box, and finally found...

    Anybody tried the Stauer Buttonwood

    Years ago, I checked out a boat load of books from the public library about horology. I concluded that the Traddest wristwatch would have Roman Numerals, a white, round dial, a gold (or gold tone) case, and black hands. It would pretty much look like the classic pocket watch, except smaller and...

    Trad Eyeglasses Revisited

    I probably should have posted this several years ago, but I can tell you without equivocation that this is a really simple, cheap way to get yourself a pair of Trad eyeglasses or prescription sunglasses. Years ago, I went to Wal Mart to get some eyeglass lenses made for me. I had been told by...

    Costume Boots

    Don't know if any of you have noticed, or even if any of you care. But the days of wearing red galoshes as part of a Mighty Mouse Halloween costume are about to become a faded and distant memory. Not that I got frost bitten toes that night back in 1974 or anything...

    Wool Cavalry Twill Riding Breeches

    Not exactly something you see every day. In fact, this is the first time I've ever seen anything like this offered for sale as newly manufactured merchandise. Not that I have any use for them, I'm just interested to know they are available somewhere in the universe.

    Anybody Have 200MB of HD space to spare for these screen caps?

    The movie was nowhere near as wonderful as I'd remembered. However, the costumes, lighting, and cinematography were quite good. Alas, I'd also misremembered about seeing the Andover Shop. So anyway, without further ado, here is the temporary download link:

    Anybody read the Trad in America Blog? Apparently the author is in high school. I couldn't read it, so I used the old trick of typing control+A to select (and therefore highlight) all the text on the page. Copying it and pasting it into a text...

    Gentlemen: I have an urgent need for a college striped sweater for men, that looks roughly like this photo I found at Baby Gap's web site. Anybody seen one lately? It will be worn a lot, so good quality is more important than price.
