10E2501: Caps For Sale | Full Foam Gas Tank Black

Caps for sale... caaaaaps. You can make hats cheap as hell so you can hook up the boys, or you get them sourced in waxed materials and handsewn by elves at moonlight...

Found a box of deadstock foam-lined gas station caps, probably older than most people reading this. Cut and sewn in the USA. Now printed with the 10e rope logo in what we are calling vintage smoke. Truthfully they had been in a box for almost 30 years so had to tease out a few wrinkles. No lookbook, no collaborations and no colorways. Email me directly if interested. $25 gets it shipped. $20 for early birds. 10th caller gets it free. #moto

10E2500: Henry David Lee (of Lee jeans) was born in Vermont

via - Kansas City Historical Association and a contact in Randolph, VT

Lee (or HD Lee Mercantile as they were originally known) have a scattered history of manufacture, in Scotland, Ireland, India and US. Their Lee 101 line (only available in Europe pretty much) is boss. Love how they put the prices right on there. Transparency.

A old Lee Stormrider or 101 denim jacket still a stone cold classic. Look for woven labels on the 'bay. Can't mention Lee w/o also referencing a great older post by TSY on The Misfits. Burn 10 minutes...

10E2499: Tracksmith - No Days Off


You don't have to go out every day until the end of the year... just go out today. Then when it is tomorrow you go out that day... and so on. Whether you are working on a 'drytown january' or prepping for the Boston Marathon in April this nifty calendar from Tracksmith will keep you on the road.

Their old timey gray cotton shirts pretty great too. Made in MA.

10E2498: Julia Child's (Provence) House For Sale


"Though Julia Child only lived full-time in France for a little over five years (from 1948–1956), she and her husband Paul maintained a small cottage in Provence until 1992. For the first time ever, the half-acre property is on sale to the public, with an asking price of about $880,000.

The kitchen counters are extra-tall to accommodate Child's height (a modest 6'2), and all the appliances are the original ones the chef actually used [actually the stove was replaced as she sold the OG- ed.]. Child's husband and his brother painted outlines of her professional cooking tools on pegboards, which remain part of the decor." via CNTraveler

This story is a month old. Still great. What? You want to be my intern?

10E2497: White Christmas?

Like the movie White Christmas - New England is looking pretty dry right now...  Let's review.

Even if you think you know White Christmas, you have to watch it on a big screen, in one sitting, preferably in a theater. So many throwaway lines and visual gags... Crosby and Kaye are on fire.

Captain: That's not the way to Headquarters...
Gen.: Joe, you know that, and I know that, but the General doesn't. At least he won't for the another hour and a half.
Captain: That sergeant will be a private in the morning.
Gen.: Yes... isn't he lucky.










Lots of suits, cuffs, cravats and wool in evidence of course; one of my fave pieces is Bing's undershirt though... thick arm cuffs. Where do you get those??











Who wouldn't want to retire to Vermont, with an old Army Jeep as a runabout, dib around with firewood and play horseshoes by day, then change into your smoking jacket by night -all the while just waiting for the snow to hit.

10E2495: Needles Duck Remix



From Needles. $1K territory... as Our Man In London (OMIL) notes; "you should have enough to do your own". Great cut'n'sew action.
