Where'd you get those laces, boss?

Filson hasn't made their Crushable Tin Cap for years. The bill was stiffened with stitching, not cardboard. Wish I still had mine.

Not in NYC summer in those duds, fellas. You'll be a puddle of well-curated sweat.

I'd like to know the most recent reason why you needed a knife?

where can you get those jeans or something like them online?

Here are a few:

1. To cut those shoe laces to the correct length
2. Opening a box.
3. Cutting rope, tags, and string.
4. Cutting an apple. I love eating an apple that I’ve cut with my pocket knife, slice by slice. You feel like a bad ass doing it. You hold the apple in your non-dominant hand and then make a slice with the knife using your dominant hand. After you make the slice, pinch it between your thumb and knife blade. Bring the blade to your mouth and deposit the apple slice.
5. Opening a letter. Sure, you could use your finger, but using a knife is just more manly.
6. Weapon. Not the most effective, but it’s better than nothing.
7. Camping. How else will you sharpen the point of a stick in preparation for stabbing your prey? And by prey I mean hot dog.
8. You never know when you’re going to have to MacGyver your way out of a crisis. Be prepared.
9. You need something to clench in your teeth when swinging from a rope.

how does the fit of the RRLs compare to the 3sixteens...more/less slim etc...?

Really cool engraving on that knife. Looks like she could tell a story.

i also would like to know where you could find laces that color. the store up the street has a tan and a brown thats closer to black than anything

james said...

can't remember specifically where I picked up the laces. It might have been the leather lace from a Quoddy shoe bag?
