June Fashion Friday

 As we prepare for our summer outings I thought it might be worthwhile to look at some ways to 'beat the heat", for men's outfits at least.

So for this month's Fashion Friday here is a video from the Antique Menswear channel on YouTube.
Lots of good information on that channel.

This is actually his first video, so a bit rambling and disjointed, BUT the idea of being well dressed WITHOUT a shirt during the summer is a great idea.

June Book Tuesday

 For this month's book Tuesday we have a lovely reproduction catalogue from Peck and Snyder in 1886.

A delightful collection of intriguing, fun, dangerous, and obscure items.

From the dust jacket:

This book is a secret attic on a rainy day, a gentle reminder of the days when baseball was two words and a bicycle was $12.50. Whatever those days were like, they could boast Peck & Snyder's Electro Radiant Megascopes, ventilated lunch satchels, nose amputation knives, battery operated scarf pins, electric sleeve buttons and magic bolognas.
