Like Fishing with Dynamite

Nov 4th, 2010 | Categories: Vintage | by Michael Williams

Part of me thinks Etsy was deliberately designed to repel men. I know reading that must make the Etsy people cringe, but you have to agree that it is not the most “rugged” of places. With all of that said, I clean up over there on vintage stuff. Everything pictured here I bought in the last two weeks. It’s like fishing with dynamite over there.

All of this Etsy shopping makes me realize what a shit show eBay can be. Everyone is trying to snipe you on eBay and if you do happen to win you get ripped off on the shipping. It definitely still has an amazing power to deliver you anything you could possibly want at anytime, but the bay sure ain’t what it used to be.

The Rig-Out #3

Nov 2nd, 2010 | Categories: ACL SHOP | by Michael Williams

After meeting with a few of the guys from The Rig-Out this past spring in London, I signed on to help distribute the mens style book here in the United States. The third installment of the Oi Polloi production sees photographer Antony Crook (a fine gent in his own right) head to the Norwegian wilds for an inspirational shoot, amongst other great stories. Issue #3 is in the ACL shop for your enjoyment. You can get one right here.
