INTEL: Italian Tailors

O'MAST from Kid Dandy on Vimeo.

If you think caring about how you dress makes you soft, watch this fantastic video of Italian tailors talking about their trade. I think you'll feel differently. From Inquiring Minds.

HIT: Florsheim Veblen

Wingtips are super hot at the moment, but almost any pair worth having is going to cost well over $200.

Now, don't get me wrong. I don't think that's too much to pay for a fine pair of shoes. But when you walk to work every day, your kicks take a beating. It's hard to justify shelling out serious cash for something you'll tear up in a few months.

Enter the Florsheim Veblen. Modeled after their legendary Kenmoor Long Wing ($225), these look great but retail at $160. Use your trusty 15 percent-off discount code - try 1012 or 8052 - and they're only about $136.

I've got one pair already, and I'm already toying with the idea of getting a second. They're that nice.

Order direct from Florsheim here.
