    hey you have a very cool site! I love all the vintage info! I was just in New York a few days ago. Happy new year!

  2. after visiting your blog, potency of black and white has further been reaffirmed for me at least.

  3. Hi David!

    I just got an email about your ties at Bergdorf’s from the urban daddy list serve and recognized your name. Congrats on starting your own company..the ties look great! I hope you’re the next Ralph.

    warms regards,

    Shane (production assistant who sat across from you at Tommy).

    I have a blow-up of a 1912 HS&M advert showing eight nattily attired young men, and an improbably coiffed young lady, on and around a Mercer Raceabout(the hot car of it’s day). My father was a commercial artist and motorsports fan and I’ve speculated whether this may have been his work. In any case, it’s a super graphic that your readers may enjoy and while its too big for me to scan, I could send a jpeg image and if a anyone can identify the artist I’ll be delighted.

    So, you’re the dapper fellow that bought my red typewriter! I’m so pleased. Your sensibility and your toys are a real tickle (as they used to say, and might say again!) If you’re interested in musical instruments, check out Bear Paw Fiddles, our vintage musical instrument company.

    I’m very pleased to have found your site. (I was searching on “1926 Royal Typewriter”, and there you were.)

    I look forward to perusing your site at greater length. Best regards from the other coast,

    Lorna Joy

    Patrick Sargent saw me in Nordstrom’s in King of Prussia sporting a bow tie and stopped me, complimented my tie and (when he found out I lived in Manhattan) gave me your name. Nice site- love the tartan ties and the denim four in hand- too bad I only wear bow ties.
