Gentleman’s Survival Kit

If you want something done right, you’re supposed to do it yourself. That’s exactly what happened with this Gentleman’s Survival Kit we found. We can’t give you all the background about what lead blogger pscmpf to create this kit, but it probably went how a lot of projects normally go. “I need a cool way to display/carry/store items X, Y, Z.” You draw out some quick plans, pick up some materials from the local hardware store and set to work. Three days later you’re four revisions deep, surrounded by a pile of sawdust, power tools and beer bottles. The end result is always cooler than what you originally imagined. You can’t buy this Gentleman’s Survival Kit, but that shouldn’t stop you from making your own. This one started as a vintage briefcase, scrap wood, leather straps and the objects (hatchet, kindling, matches, whiskey, flask and storage containers). When you make one (probably not an “if” at this point) figure out what you want to put in it, and start looking for a case.

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.
