Final Four

So my buddy over At A Time To Get asked an interesting question today. What are the four most important parts of your everyday wear? Mine is simple… Red Wing 1178 boots, vintage Ollech & Wajs 2063 MP, Ray-Ban Aviators, and a Billykirk card case. I wear this stuff 99.9% of the time I’m out and about.

What’s your final four?

The Dossier Picks Some Pockets

Read More

So by studying the contents of a man’s pockets, what details can you learn about him? Can a man be defined by the gear he wears and carries? We “picked-the-pockets” of several New Yorkers (regardless of political party affiliation) and took a look at the details of their existence to answer the key question: what are the objects you simply cannot do without? We found the bangles, baubles, trinkets and final flourishes of their dress were unmistakable expressions of their craft, uniqueness, eccentricity, faith, sentimentality and humor…

Dig what they found.

I can’t read Japanese, so your guess is as good as mine on the details of these little buggers… I will, however, say that these things are pretty damn cool to stare at…
