Shameless Self Promotion


William Gentle, one of the best and least praised photographers of our time, gave me the honor of being photographed for his photo blog, Back Yard Bill.  It was fun and he showed me parts of Brooklyn I could have never imagined existed.  Check it out at backyardbill.blogspot.com
Then I was approached by the genius behind Style with Benefits, Becs, about a Monday (Mensday) style panel.  Among the few are Max of All Plaidout, Nick of A Time to Get, Lawrence of Sartoirially Inclined, Paul of Components of Enthusiasm, Will of Momentum of Failure, and more.  So, what are you waiting for.

And while riding on the coattails of my favorite store and job, the New York Times featured Hickoree's Hard Goods and my picture.  Check it out on The Pulse.

Awesome post on Backyard Bill! And, it led me to your site (which is now bookmarked).

Love your preppy/rugged style. Same as mine. I had mentioned on BYB that I have never seen a backpack that I like until I came upon the pictures. Who makes it? Don't worry, just curious, I'm not going to buy one. I work out of my apartment, so the need for a backpack or any bag (save my Camouflage backpack for hiking) is unnecessary.

Jeffrey - The backpack is a vintage 1940's Boy Scout rucksack which I purchased at the Brooklyn Flea. And I have no worries about people buying the same stuff as me. If someone else likes it why not give them the info. I am not territorial.

L.A.S & COE - Thanks guys. You know you guys will be my inspirations no matter how blown up I get...

wecouldgrowup2gether - Thanks. I guess it was lucky that Bill just so happened to stop by the shop I was working at and ask me to model for him. I couldn't have asked for better luck.

And Wrecked Stellar - Style with Benefits is dope, but her twin is a little strange. Posting on keg retirement parties at her work and the like...haha.

Thank you kind sir. Let me just tell you that's the first time I've been called a genius. :) Checked out the photos by William Gentle and they're really great. Nice job as a model!

Becs - tried to channel you when I was modeling. Obviously you're still a much better model than i can ever be.

Just "discovered" your blog through Becs' post and I love it.

Imightbechad - the company is the Cooperstown Ball Cap Co. but they closed their doors this month. Sorry.

AsianCajuns (Cath) - Very cool, I was told about you guys from Mr. Moy at GBLYSS. I'm glad you approve (blushing a little).
