What's New

On September 24, 2022, I enjoyed the first day of 2022 Leather Weather of our first crisp morning of Autumn with a photo shoot in my back yard wearing some of my favorite leather gear. Blue and black leather look great! Blue leather shirt, leather tie, Sam Browne belt, blue-striped leather jeans, Chippewa Hi-Shine boots, and tight leather gloves -- still feelin' it!
On September 21, 2022, I posted photos of a new pair of Chippewa "Thunderstruck" logger boots that I bought in September, 2022. These rugged, waterproof boots are 10 inches high, have heavy-duty oiled leather uppers that are treated to shed water. ASTM rated for electrical hazards. Rubber midsole, BONTEX insole. "IQ" Vibram rubber outsole. Goodyear PVC Storm Welt construction. I wanted a pair of new loggers to get me through the winter. Great boots, but damn hard to lace up properly.
On September 20, 2022, I wore my Brooks Brothers blue sharkskin suit again. I am loving the fit and feel of this suit more and more. I bought a cool contrasting collar french cuff dress shirt, cufflinks to go with it, some new ties, and a pink pocket square. I updated more pages on this website where the dress shoes would be appropriate with a suit, but I didn't own the suits when I bought the shoes so there were not suit photos on those pages (yet). I have updated the pages for my Allen Edmonds black Bond Street shoes; one of my first pairs of Allen Edmonds black Fifth Avenue shoes that have a Dainite sole; and my Allen Edmonds wholecut Carlyle shoes in bourbon. Both black and brown shoes go very well with a medium blue suit.
On September 12, 2022, before I shaved off my beard, I put on my best Tom of Finland appearance and updated a few pages on this website: 1) Muir Cap Smoker; 2) Tom of Finland (style) smoker; 3) my main Eagle Pin Muir Cap page; 4) restored "Muir Cap and Leather"; and 5) restored "Muir Cap and Uniform" page.
On September 10, 2022, I wore my Brooks Brothers blue sharkskin suit. I updated more pages on this website where the dress shoes would be appropriate with a suit, but I didn't own the suits when I bought the shoes so there were not suit photos on those pages (yet). I have updated the pages for my Allen Edmonds Strand shoes in coffee; my Allen Edmonds Bond Street shoes in mahogany; and my Allen Edmonds Fifth Avenue shoes in mahogany. Brown shoes go very well with a medium blue suit.
On September 9, 2022, I restored some missing images on my BLUF gear page. Getting ready for leather weather and the looks for Autumn.
On September 9, 2022, I restored some missing images on my Dehner Boots and Dress BLUF page. Getting ready for leather weather and pulling on my Dehners with leather again. Woof!
On September 9, 2022, I wore my Jos. A Bank navy pinstripe suit for a change. I updated more pages on this website where the dress shoes would be appropriate with a suit, but I didn't own the suits when I bought the shoes so there were not suit photos on those pages (yet). I have updated the pages for my Allen Edmonds Fifth Avenue shoes in merlot; my Allen Edmonds Park Avenue shoes in coffee; and my Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece wingtip shoes in burgundy.
On September 8, 2022, I wore my Brooks Brothers navy suit again. It is so comfortable now that the weather is more cooperative. I have been updating some pages on this website where the dress shoes would be appropriate with a suit, but I didn't own the suits when I bought the shoes so there were not suit photos on those pages (yet). I have updated the pages for my Allen Edmonds Park Avenue shoes in olive; my Allen Edmonds Strand shoes in oxblood; and my Allen Edmonds Strand Weave shoes in walnut.
On September 7, 2022, as I was dressing in my Brooks Brothers navy suit just because it is so comfortable, I pulled on a pair of boots to wear with it, took some photos, and updated my "Suits and Boots" page as well as the image rotation for my home page on this website.
On September 6, 2022, I spent significant time paying attention to the "boot wiki" on this website. I updated many pages, backed it up, updated the software, and added more reviews. It has been a long time since I have attended to this resource, especially when I had not added a review of Rujo Boots that I've had for a few years (and love 'em). Since I get questions and email about the boot reviews, it was time that I pay some attention to updating it. I still have more work to do, but it is in better shape today than it has been in years.
On September 5, 2022, I posted photos of a new Resistol straw 20x cowboy hat that I bought this summer. My old straw hats had seen better days, and I got this one on a great sale. It has a 4-1/4 inch brim, regular oval, cattleman crease, all around vents, and a simple hat band with silver toned buckle. It fits great and I wear it often, especially with suits. Why not?
On September 5, 2022, I restored photos of my felt cowboy hat collection. I wear cowboy hats often. Straw in summer, felt in colder weather.
On September 5, 2022, I posted pictures of a pair of Meermin black wingtip dress shoes that I got on a great sale in late August 2022. These shoes look sharp with any suit in my wardrobe. These shoes add to my extensive dress shoe collection and make my 30th pair of good-looking wingtips.
On September 4, 2022, I took pictures and posted a page about a pair of Tecovas "Bandera" Boots in Umber (dark brown) that I bought in July before a price increase. I have a pair of these boots that I got in 2020 and have found them to be among the most rugged yet comfortable cowboy-style work boots I've worn. These boots are 13 inches tall, and feature oil- and slip-resistant Vibram outsoles. The boots scuff easily, but they are made to work and ride ruggedly so scuffing adds to their character.
On September 4, 2022, I posted pictures of a pair of Allen Edmonds Fifth Avenue dress shoes in Black. I ordered them on an "F2" (seconds) sale from Allen Edmonds in August. I have a pair of these shoes with a Dainite rubber sole that I bought when I was first building my my dress shoe collection. I've learned that I prefer leather soles due to the sound they make. These shoes look sharp with any suit in my wardrobe. Like most of my Allen Edmonds shoes in my collection, these shoes were very comfortable the first time I put them on. They make my 12th pair of Fifth Avenues and the 62nd pair of Allen Edmonds shoes which composes about half of dress shoe collection.
On August 29, 2022, I admit it... I smoke. I stopped for a while, but thought, oh hell, it's f'kin time I came out as a Marlboro Man again. Legacy and some recent smokin' photo galleries restored on this website.

I mean after all, you've seen me smoking in suits, boots, and leather, as well as the images on my home page, for the past couple of years. Light up and have a look.
On August 29, 2022, I posted pictures of a pair of Allen Edmonds Park Avenue dress shoes in Burgundy. The color is close to oxblood, but with a richer redish hue. I ordered them on an "F2" (seconds) sale from Allen Edmonds in August. These shoes look sharp with navy pinstripe suit. Like most of my Allen Edmonds shoes in my collection, these shoes were very comfortable the first time I put them on. They make my 14th pair of the dressy Park Avenues and the 61st pair of Allen Edmonds shoes which composes about half of my entire dress shoe collection.
On August 28, 2022, I posted pictures of a pair of Paul Evans "Brando" semi-brogue oxfords in "Havana Brown." The color is sort of like Cuban tobacco -- a rich warm brown, like a dark cognac. I pre-ordered them in March and they were delivered 5 months later. These shoes "pop" when I wear them with my blue sharkskin suit. I wore them with this suit for two days and admired the "head turns" from men who couldn't stop staring at them. The shoes require some breaking in for comfort since they are so exceptionally well-made. These shoes add to my extensive dress shoe collection.
On August 26, 2022, I finally posted pictures of a pair of Allen Edmonds McTavish shoes in coffee with lug soles that I bought in May. I have worn and enjoyed these shoes for months. Very comfortable to walk in, especially on wet pavement. These shoes add to my extensive dress shoe collection and in particular, my large Allen Edmonds Dress Shoe collection.
On August 25, 2022, I finally posted pictures of a pair of Allen Edmonds Park Avenue shoes with big lug soles that I bought in April. I have worn and enjoyed these shoes for months, then determined that I had not taken photos or posted a page about these shoes. These are classic Park Avenues with a twist -- the sole. Better worn with jeans than a suit. Very comfortable to walk in. These shoes add to my extensive dress shoe collection and in particular, my large Allen Edmonds Dress Shoe collection.
On August 24, 2022, I finally posted pictures of a pair of Fenoglio "Double Shot" red / black / grey cowboy boots that I bought in March 2022. These boots have been in my stable for a while and I enjoy wearing them. They are 13 inches tall and feature a roughout vamp in red, with a black heel counter and grey calfskin shafts. They have a 1-1/2 inch stacked cowboy walking heel and a leather sole. I like boots that have colorful but not ostentatious colors.
On August 10, 2022, I suited up in my Brooks Brothers blue sharkskin suit and tried on a new pair of Paul Evans "The West" brown wingtip dress shoes that I bought last week. These shoes are quite solid and will require some breaking in. They are size 9 (European), and have full-grain Italian calfskin leather upper, matching leather sole, leather lining, and Blake construction. When I received these shoes and unpacked the box, I was very impressed at the quality and design.
On August 7, 2022, I suited up in my grey sharkskin suit and tried on a new pair of Allen Edmonds "Siena" black cap toe dress shoes that I bought last week. These shoes are new in the Allen Edmonds collection. They are made of Italian leather and are very soft. They fit perfectly and are so comfortable, I wore them all day and will again next time I suit up. These shoes have an elegant low profile that works really well with a suit with trousers hemmed appropriately. The leather sole is quite flexible. These shoes add to my extensive dress shoe collection and in particular, my large Allen Edmonds Dress Shoe collection.
On August 3, 2022, I posted photos of a new pair of Fenoglio copper/red tall cowboy boots that I bought in April on sale. I finally had some time to take photos of these fine-looking boots for this website. I wear these boots with jeans tucked into them and get a lot of attention and comments of "nice boots!"
On August 2, 2022, I sold a pair of Dehner boots on my continuing quest to downsize my boot collection.
On August 1, 2022, (and earlier in June), I restored the "smokin' cowboy" (or Marlboro Man) photos and page on this website.
