    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...

    Hiroshi Watatani Part II

    Hey guys, just found a few more pictures by Hiroshi Watatani. The web pages in question are probably familiar to some of you. I haven't checked in for several years, so I'm sorry if these links are redundant. Enjoy. Just went through a very messy divorce. I've been fighting tooth and nail for...

    Trad Plastics

    Is This Trad? Always wanted a wooden keyboard, but maybe with pearly key tops. Teak, not bamboo. Definitely not wood colored keys, but Hooleon could help me replace those ugly keys in a heartbeat.

    Wool Cavalry Twill Riding Breeches

    May I humbly point out that the cotton twills I mentioned were adopted by us Yanks after seeing them on former officers of the British Army? I'm referring to the trousers we now call "Khakis", but were once the exclusive uniform of members of the British Military (mostly those who served time in...

    Navy and White Grosgrain Watchband

    The few suppliers I found were in England. I found three who use the old fashioned triple bar buckle, and only one supplier who seemed to know how to get the webbing made up in custom colors. These three suppliers are not the manufacturer, and I still don't know who that is. There is also...

    Navy and White Grosgrain Watchband

    Originally, most were made in England. A company called "Trafalgar" (the braces manufacturer) used to import and distribute them here in the US if memory serves. CWB bought out the remaining inventory when the product line was discontinued a decade or so ago, and they have been slowly selling...

    Which Motorcar?

    Amazing story! Think I'll opt for the Hollywood knot instead, and tuck the scarf neatly into my coat (to keep the dust out).
