WHITE'S SEMI DRESS WORK BOOTS

Today it's another pair of White's Semi Dress Boots...
What?  Two pairs of these?  Yes, for now, as I've discovered that my first pair was just too small for me... so if you're interested they're on the ebay...
This is the stock set up for Semi Dress.  Brown semi dress leather with leather sole.
part eyelets and part speed hooks.
Just a classic, great looking pair of work boots...
The leather sole after a day of wear.
the standard Semi Dress Toes.
This pair actually fit right out of the box!  I thought I could get the other to fit, but my feet told me otherwise.   White's Semi Dress are Vintage Gear for Guys!

STETSON SUMMER COWBOY HAT

Today it's the ol' Cowboy Hat.
I needed some sun protection when I'm mowing the lawn, and thought a nice summer straw Cowboy hat would do the trick.
I'm not crazy about the color, but it's a thrift store find so what-cha-gonna-do?
I figured I can change the band and color in those blue eyelets.
I'm not sure what 8X Shantung is, but it's enough to stamp it on the sweatband.
If you can pull off a cowboy hat, then do it... and make sure you own at least one Stetson... they're like the Chucks of Cowboy hats... It's Vintage Gear for Guys!

VINTAGE CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STARS - PURPLE

Today it's a pretty rare pair of Sneakers...
It's a vintage pair of Chuck Taylor All Stars Low in the rare color of Purple!
Made in the USA, probably from the 60's-70s.   My son helped me find these and he was excited to find an old pair of Chucks!
Dark Blue heel tags!   
And in a huge size too!  Normally I find old chucks but they're old kids sizes.
The only way these would be better is if they were in they were high tops.   I don't find Vintage Chucks very often, but this makes up for not finding them...  Chucks are Vintage Gear for Guys!   Plus, depending on when you read this, I'll be posting these on Ebay as they're a tad big on me....
