Something special arrived today
« on: July 22, 2021, 09:17:27 PM »
I wanted one for 20 years and here it is. To paraphrase the words of Chigurh in No Country for Old Men, this keychain has been travelling since 1965 to get here and now it's here. I always thought they were much larger like a rapper's medallion but was pleasantly surprised at its compactness. Small but formidable.  The back is blank unlike the others that have a return address but this one is from the period and was sold to the general public whereas the return address ones were given to Cobra buyers. My Tag is next to it for size reference. Special thanks to Vernon Estes. Very happy with what I bought.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

My own custom brand of gloves called Treadheart. I designed the logo and put it on polo shirts and driving gloves.

Glad it arrived safely!

Good morning kind Sir,

I like your fashion line especially the gloves. Before I pull the trigger, I must ask this question:

Are these gloves impervious to liquids and easy to clean?

If so please provide a link as I have a customer in mind that would be highly interested in gloves with such properties.

Kindest regards

They are cowhide leather so they are only cleanable to the extent that leather is cleanable. Same as for permeability of liquid. They are standard driving gloves.

Spoke to the customer he will pass on the gloves. Do you sell hat's? He may order a 5XL size if you have

There are a few hats left but mostly sold out.  Regular baseball cap with adjustable back.
