1950'S "HOT ROD" ENGINEER BOOTS


These NOS Vintage Engineer Boots went unsold and re-listed for just over five bills - that's a great price (even with proxy fees, etc.)! Based on the measurements, I estimate them to be men's 6.5 or 7. Perfect for the rockin' gals, too! For those with a penchant for amazing vintage, I wouldn't pass these up.

These were originally referred to as "Hot Rod" Boots.

TOYS McCOY BECK ENGINEER BOOTS IN RARE DOUBLE TANNED HORSEHIDE


Sold!

Another addition to the Closet Sale are my rare Toys McCoy Beck EngineerBoots, Model TMA6608, long sold out. These are made of Double Tanned Horsehide whereas the new models are made with cowhide. The patina on these are amazing - all from natural wear and not forced. I purchased these new back in May of 2009 and they are built like tanks.

CLOSET CLEARANCE PART 2


Okay folks, here's the second iteration of my closet clearing. Truth be told, I haven't even had the chance to go through other boxes stored throughout the house.

The first piece I ran across in my lazy attempt to go through the closet is my very first big guitar purchase from about nine years ago. Now I'm no guitar player, but a man can dream, right? Having said that, It's in excellent (bedroom) used condition!!

Stay tuned for more items in my "Closet" page.

1928 ENGINEER BOOTS!


This photo was snapped in 1928. Looks like Chippewa's claim of inventing the first Engineer Boots style in 1937 are without merit. They may as well claim the "Worlds Best Cup of Coffee."

RANDOM ENGINEER BOOTS


These are great 1940's Chippewa Engineer Boots in Horsehide. False! They are nice mid-to-late 1950's in Oil-Tanned leather. **Chippewa's were NEVER made with Horsehide**

The first Volkswagen Beetle hit the US 65 years ago and to a lot of people they all look alike (save for the obvious split or oval windows), but enthusiasts know to key in on the fine details like front and tail lights as well as fender lamps to help identify the year.

VEB LEATHER CHIMAYO ZIP WALLET/POUCH


I just received a ton of Chimayo for my custom VEB Leather universal zip pouches. This is going to be FUN! As always all my leather goods are 100% handcrafted using only the best hand-picked materials. I don't use sewing machines and professional cutting dies on my leather and pass them off as "completely hand made" Choose true handcrafted and not "assembled by hand." My creations are made the traditional way with two needles and a passion for the craft.

The stud designs are usually thought up as I create the pouch, so no two are the same. Customer custom stud work available as well.

These will be made available on my Etsy page along with other pieces.

He personally presented us with "challenge coins." A nice addition to my arsenal of coins I've collected over the past two decades.

CLOSET CLEARANCE


Update (5 Jan): Many items sold, please be sure to visit my "Closet" page as I will be adding more items.

It's that time once again to clean out the closet to make room ... well, just to make room. With this new year, among other things, I resolve to not take up so much closet and storage real estate with clothes I don't get a chance to wear. As I open up boxes and clear out drawers, I will continue to add more items to my "Closet" page.

MISTER FREEDOM® & MUSHMANS


Someone recently asked how close the colors are on the Mister Freedom® Campus Jacket and Cognac John Lofgren & Co. x Mushmans engineer Boots in Badalassi and I say they are very close. They'll be even closer when I apply more conditioner to the jacket.
