Off the bat, I want to thank Jeremiah from A Headlong Dive for including me in the Sartorial et al series which pulls together some of my favorite blogs for the purpose of reviewing a single item. Well this time around, Jeremiah introduced us to form function form where we got a chance to sample a few items from Shawn's company. Here's my review of the Architect's Wallet and Bow Shackle Bracelet.

Bond hopefully Robert Campbell
When Sean Connery left the James Bond series after 5 movies (he later returned for Diamonds are Forever) the search for a new Bond was on. In 1967, Life sent photographer Loomis Dean to shoot the final auditions for On Her Majesty's Secret Service but it was never published in the magazine.

For me, true style lies in the details: A well placed monogram or a worn leather accessory goes a long way in my book. Over the past few years, I've been trying to embrace this philosophy in my purchases and the one place that I keep going back to is Billykirk. Recently, I had a chance to hang out with Chris and Kirk Bray at their shop for a project and while I was there I added their No.233 Belt to my collection.

JFK on the Campaign Trail
With politics reaching a fever pitch these days, it's always nice to take a step back and examine the classic style and ease in which John F. Kennedy displayed on and off the 1960 campaign trail.

Early 1960s model of the Lunar Excursion Module
I love seeing things go from concept to construction. So I was super excited when I came across the development of the Lunar Excursion Module (LEM), which ultimately helped Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin Jr, set foot on the moon on July 20, 1969.
