Zipper/Button Porn, etc. : Titan Trading co.

After having a tour of the Titan facilities, and once Raan and Mike had taken care of Apolis business, Jason says, "You'll really like this." and walks us back to his office where, on the wall, is the largest zipper I've seen firsthand and a desk

I emailed Jason about some of the items. This is what he had to say.

"...the large Crown zipper (spring loaded) was purchased on ebay many years ago. same with the book/knife/matches. The carhartt book was used as a crop account book and inventory records. The other books were mainly time books."

Jason's been apart of the company his father started back in '83 since he was a kid and now does a little bit of everything around the place, concentrating mostly in client relations.

Big thanks to Jason for letting me document the visit, for lunch and for the lift to Carlstadt.

All of those buttons look really interesting. I wouldn't mind sewing some of those onto my clothes to give them some personality.

Most of the above buttons are all from Jason's personal collection off of vintage work wear garments He's been collecting them a long time. All really amazing.
