And just yesterday, the 2015 Just for Men® National Beard and Moustache Championships® presented by Hanes X-Temp® took place in Brooklyn, New York. Details here.

Toddler Jodhpurs

It may be too late for you to get your child into a pair of these this winter; but there’s always next year to make him or her freak out everyone else on the sledding hill. (Can you only imagine if they were knit from wool?!) From Fleisher’s Baby Book, Infants To 4 Years, Volume # 101; copyright 1957, Fleisher Yarns, Inc.

Attack Of The Plastic Floral Hat

A vintage plastic hat — yes, entirely plastic! Even the inside — it’s like a weave of plastic! (The very sight of it made my head itch!) White plastic lily of the valley bells topped by green leaves, it even matches its nifty hatbox! Spotted at The Olde Store in Hales Corners, Wisconsin.
