Denim

Posted on October 6, 2013 at 1:23am 0 Comments

Over the last few months iv gotten a very unhealthy obsession with denim . I have not owned denim pants for over twenty years preferring to wear rod and gunn moleskins or cargos buy a trip to SF,s flagship levi,s store last year prompted me to buy a pair of 501's , well twelve months on and they got a tear in the knee and that was the end of those , but a post on here in the fashion and grooming section got me interested in the quality of jeans today and why did they feel different when I was a… Continue

Compliments on my saddleback briefcase

Posted on May 5, 2012 at 9:29pm 1 Comment

When you read the brief about the saddleback briefcase is that you will get compliments everywhere , so l thought l would post on this blog every time someone comments on it .

Day two of owning said bag , young girl working the reception at my gym compliments it three times in one sentence , good start .

New group , all welcome

Posted on April 24, 2012 at 8:26pm 3 Comments

Today l have , pending approval , started a new group called " Eclectic treasures ' where l hope members can post pictures or links to everyday items that that have and use , but are much more than things , they are pieces of art in there own right .

What inspired me is the passion members have for items such as - saddleback bags , knifes , watches and such , but what about the small things , like the Chicago comb CO combs or a para cord belt .

lf approved l will get the ball rolling…

Sure i'll join your group. Quality is hard to find these days, when everything is made of plastic. In my opinion the saddleback duffel is too small for taking on a trip. It would be great if they made a bigger version of it. Talking about quality leather goods, go check out Colsenkeane.com. They also have some great bags, it is quite expensive tough.

Yeah, a support group would be great. It would make my new obsession feel more natural. Actually i have been checking out some Col. Littleton. His leather shave kit is one item i am thinking about buying, when i get rich. Littleton addiction would be a very expensive addiction. Are you also an saddleback addict?

Hey Brian! Thabks for getting back to me and clearing the air. You are right, your joke went right over my head and I, as I typically often do, over-reacted. Anyhoos please accept my apologies for this misunderstanding! I tend to be very sarcastic in my own humor and should have seen it. I'll chat with you anytime.

Best Always,

Don Devine
