About twenty years ago I was at a car show and a vendor had one of these. I thought it was the coolest thing ever, but alas…. I was broke. It haunted me for years and once the internet became a resource, I started researching and learned a bit about it. Turns out that this German company made fleet truck chassis, mostly for school bus and delivery fleets. If you bought a fleet order, they made you buy one of these demonstration models to use to train the technicians. EVERYTHING on it works, even the engine runs, clutch and tranny synchro’s, lights… everything. I marvel at the complexity and skills needed to make it. One day a few years ago I stumbled into this one on Ebay, and grabbed it! It sits in my office and has begun many interesting conversations, plus it helps my kids understand what I do!

For those who find attention-grabbing brogues and ornate details a bit too flashy but who still want a pair of attractive, well-made dress shoes, The Martin Wholecut is the answer. Handmade in Italy out of a single piece of Italian calfskin leather, the rich, supple dress shoes feel exceedingly comfortable and look sleek without being over the top. Each is outfitted with a leather lining, a matching leather sole, and is even painted by hand. Plus, thanks to the Blake construction, The Martin Wholecut Oxfords feel light and flexible.
