Gone Hunting: Part 2

This is a pair of NRA-branded hunting pants from the 1930′s.  The color, the cotton, and the craftsmanship are impeccable.  I will be hanging these on a wall in a few short weeks.

Super-high-rise, five button closure.  Short inseam (approx 25 inches) so that they rest atop tall hunting boots.

Something looks vaguely Klingon about this design.

Front pocket has a button closure.

Beautiful shell buttons.  Reinforced fly.

Locker loop.  Flap-pocket closure.

Recycled Tennis Racquet Pouch

This is a bit of an unusual post from me.  Today at Little Otsu in San Francisco, I acquired this charming little pouch made from re-purposed vintage tennis racquet cases.  The size makes it perfect for a point-and-shoot camera, small notebook, and an iPod.  Asymmetrical shape, different colored panels, a heavy-duty zipper, and a soft felt lining complete the package.

The artisan, Alissa Anderson, also sells her repurposed wallets at her etsy webstore.
