I had never heard of Corter Leather. After the Google told me a little about the brand:
"Corter Leather is a super-small, one man operation. Every product is 100% hand made by maker Eric Heins in a small apartment studio in Boston, Massachusetts. Each piece is designed in house, cut by memory, hand punched, and hand sewn. Templates are never made, so no two pieces perfectly alike."
I fully support the brand. Check out the tumblr here.
I like Noah's Birkenstocks. Reminds me of my time in Colorado. Noah does tumblr, see here.

Saturdays Surf Shop has been a huge success since it launched. They started as a surf shop with coffee bar that carried surf brands and some propriety graphic t-shirts. Over the last few years they have expended to a full cut and sew line, footwear, colabs, opened another location, and most recently launched a magazine (see here). If you haven't heard about Saturdays you have been living under a rock basically..... I mean my friend that lives in Colorado knows about it.
Colin is the one of three men behind the Saturdays "empire" and according to the google he is Co-Owner and Creative Director.
I saw him drinking coffee outside with this mote next to him and had to snap a pic. I have actually featured this mote on my tumblr... way back when. I really like it, but as with all Porter bags its not cheap (see here to buy).
Name: Jon Carlo

Jon Carlo's blue hat caught my eye from across the street and his Lanvin murse drew my in. I really like everything about his look minus the SmartWater.... not a fan. I do love the Jennifer Aniston ads tho.
Name: Freddy Rodriguez
Location: Chelsea, NYC
I met Freddy this week. He is also a blogger. His Blog is Blue Perk... See HERE. If you look at Freddy's blog you can see he is a proponent of the murse. He features them fairly often.
It is Freddy's Date of Birth today. So my present to you, Freddy, is this post. I know its not much but its all I got.
He is rocking a J. Crew murse from a few seasons ago... not really "vintage", but I know you get it. I thought it was Filson, but he told me I wasn't the first person to make that mistake. I did feel dumb tho.

This guy told me that he was a Model Agent ... "Someone needs to do it"
