    How do I get on your Christmas list?

    Great pick-up pics at MOTM. And if I’m ever in Cleveland…

    I’m wondering with your inside connections with Levi’s…Who’s the illustrator of those vintage ads?

    See a nice interview with Carlos here.

    Sorry for the self promotion, but he’s cool.

    Not really a history of the leathermen tool, more a study of its evolution, because as everyone knows, no history of the leathermen would be complete without mentioning its use to take down airplanes.

    Michael Williamson December 13, 2010 @ 11:42 PM:

    They used box cutters to take down airplanes. Not Leatherman tools. Am I wrong?

    TMHon December 13, 2010 @ 11:54 PM:

    Box cutters. Absolutely. No one is getting on a plane with any knife of any size. I had a micro leatherman confiscated in the past 9 years by airport security. I make sure to always put it in my checked bag. It was a foolish mistake .

    I love those vintage illustrations as well as I loved your post on LVC’s boutique in Japan.

    Love the post about Russell Moc., they really are the real deal. Great to know Wisconsin can be known for something more than milk, cheese, and beer.

    Love the levi’s add. It looks very much like Charley Harper. But I’m viewing it from a phone so it’s hard to see. Wish I was on that Christmas list.

    Once again, Mr Williams connects the dots. Tip of the hat, and clink my finger of (single malt) scotch in your direction, good sir! And as long as I’m gratuitously pimping Ohio and it’s native sons, may I also acknowledge Justin’s invocation of Charley Harper (above comment), another Heartland hero who steadily, quietly, and tastefully contributed beauty to this messy world we inhabit.

    If you are ever in Cincinnati you should visit the John Weld Peck Federal Building to see his mosaic murals that cover the walls. They are just beautiful works of art.

    Made a purchase at the Ohio Knitting Mills Pop-Up over the weekend. It’s a beautiful rust colored, Pendleton wool crewneck sweater. Thanks for the info!
