Vic Reeves Loves Tweed

  Sometimes I post things here just so I know where to find them later.  That's sort of how I started this blog anyway.  I liked idea of having a blog roll that showed the blogs I look instead of saving the site as a "favorite".   This way I could view the blogs I look at by "Date of last update" rather than check each to see if they've been updated recently (isn't modern technology is wonderful?).

  I came across this on ACL last night.  I don't remember seeing this before, but I thought it was very entertaining, even for someone who has no interest in menswear.  But for someone who IS interested in menswear or tweed, one could only imagine how exciting it would be travel the Scottish countryside in search of the source of Harris Tweed.  And to have your own personal tweed pattern made, that's just straight off the hook!

Alden Design Contest

With all due respect to A Cordial Churchman and the recent bow tie contest, Leather Soul's Alden Design Contest is a contest that you can really sink your teeth into.  To enter, come up with your own Alden shoe or boot design within the given guidelines and you have a chance to win the shoes or boots that YOU designed.

The best part is somebody is going to win and that somebody might as well be this body.  Good'll need it because I have conjured up the ultimate Alden shoe.  It's hype!  You might as well just shoot for the boot category because I have the shoe category all wrapped up.  After the contest is over I'll post what my design is (hopefully) or would have been (most likely).

Here is some Alden shoe porn for inspiration.
