Bi-Monthly Belt Club
The Belt of the Month Club! Well not really, more like the belt of every other month club. Six times a year we will deliver a brand new belt to some lucky recipient. Starting with Christmas (Santa, Wreath or a Candy Cane), and then followed by Valentine’s Day (Big Red Heart), St Patrick’s Day (Shamrock), Memorial Day/4th Of July (American Flag), Halloween (Jack O Lantern) and Thanksgiving (Turkey). All are premium quality and hand made in Essex, Connecticut. Truly a present for the man who has everything.
Six Belts, individually delivered a week before each Holiday - $135.
He is the love of the blog world lately, I mean he is literally all over the place. Not my first and probably not my last time complementing him.
His keys to success are not entirely unique, but definitely well executed
1) Take Sartorialist style photos of hipsters/cool guys around the world wearing vintage clothing
2) Run with PR machine Michael Williams and the ACL/Pop Up Flea crew, I don't have any repsect for a guy who uses his blog as a business to promote the highest bidder, at least call a shill a shill, I really hope nobody believes this guy is unbiased... back to the topic at hand
3) Develop and sell related products (neck wear, braces, hats and hopefully more accessories coming soon)
Dark and Stormy hat will keep me hoping for warmer days with Gosling Black Seal and Barritt's Ginger Beer when Summer rolls back around
Along the way it helps to do a lot of guest posts, have a quality Twitter account, garner some glowing praise (see #2) and last but certainly not least, practice what you preach and get photographed rocking the finest blue-collar-at-white-collar-price-heritage-American-clothing
hats off to you Mister Mordechai Rubenstein!
PS: Grew up in Providence, RI huh? I am living on Blackstone Boulevard on the East Side currently!
Don't these boots look just like the Red Wing 875s that everyone has been jocking nowadays. They are $89 for the uninsulated ones and $110 with Goretex and $10 more to add Thinsulate. The moccasin toe look is my favorite for boots, just like the 875.
Also the Upland Field Coat looks really good as it was the subject of a recent post over at Heavy Tweed Jacket. The cotton lined joint is the one he picked and I cosign. I have a bunch of LL Bean items and I really admire their quality and the outdoorsy New England aesthetic.
