That is my buddy Randy Goldberg’s set-up pictured at a concert earlier this summer. The wallet is a custom Billykirk from the Pop Up Flea. I finally got around to pulling those pictures off my camera and this guy stood out. The Billykirk boys are famous for being painfully nice, so I bet if you wanted a special wallet a la Mr. Goldberg’s below they would do it for you for a few extra bucks. Budweiser sold separately.

If you haven’t had a chance to drink some Buds outside, sit around a camp fire, drive fast with all of your windows down, ride on a boat, catch an outdoor show, drink a Dark ‘N’ Stormy and do all of that other fun summer stuff you better get at it. One more month and it is September…

    whats up with that “freedom” song? it really sucks.

    Budweiser was what was sold at the Wilco show at Coney Island and believe me they went down just fine.

    About the card case. “Freedom” was Randy’s nickname in College. Perhaps he could chime in and explain the name. It’s hard to tell but his card case is made of a navy leather and stitched with a red waxed cording. I believe we used white snaps to even further it’s all-American look. Looking forward to a photo of it in two years time.

    estas carteras son muy caras para lo que son , un simple trabajo de guarnicionero, me gusta su espiritu , pero su precio……

    Gracias para el en-sitio en bienes hechos más baratos. Continuaremos hacerlo nuestro sin embargo.

    I like the Red, White, and Blue case. I’ve got the same case in black, best wallet I’ve ever had. I’m liking the inclusion of some music in the posts these days. Rage is one of the top bands I would liked to have seen live when they were together.

    Thanks for the shout, MW!

    To Chris’s point, i manage a legendary soft rock cover duo called Soft Release that has a longstanding feud with John Oates and is intimately familiar with the musical stylings of Dave Mason, Bread, Air Supply, Ambrosia, Messrs Loggins and Messina and the like. In the soft rock world, i am Freedom McGovern, patriot and finger cymbalist.

    There’s nothing American about Bud anymore, plus it tastes like rice-swill:

    Cliff on August 4, 2009 7:04 PM:

    Budweiser is an affront to humanity. It’s the McNugget of beers. The propaganda for shitty beer in this country has been so effective that every Joe the plumber out there thinks you’re being an affected snob if you seek out a real beer. (This include my own parents) The irony of course is that the micro brews of today were effectively all that was available 70 years ago, back when small local breweries quenched the thirst of the nation. Now it’s a huge corporate empire that controls over 90% of all the beer consumed in America. And the beer they produce is flavorless swill. MW, you might want to think about that before you go tauting Bud as some sort of American staple. Just like most of the mediocre crap that is the rich tapestry of America, Bud is bull. Other such examples include Brooks Brothers, professional sports and the GOP.

    I only really drink wine coolers, but I like Budweiser because of the label design.

    This is quite the steal at this price. I brought this to a local leatherhead shop here in town and they quoted me $200 to make the same wallet. I guess I will be ordering online. Thanks for the hook up on this wallet!
