This weekend was spent in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park enjoying the snow, the views, the sounds of young families having fun, and some quality me time.
I had my GNTLMN x Strawfoot Handmade Tote Bag in tow and was pleased to see how well it has been developing it’s own identity through use and age. The waxed canvas gets better looking at it gets more beat up, the vegetable tanned leather changes colors and increases in softness, and the shape of the tote forms to it’s use.
Here’s to hoping for a bit more snow around these parts soon. - Wesley
We spot a cameo for the GNTLMN x Strawfoot Handmade Tote bag!
A few more screen shots of Anthony da Costa’s music video for “Across The Country” which should be coming your way next week! Almost done.
GNTLMN Fashion Tip: Shoe Laces
Shoe laces are typically regarded as purely functional, but they can also be a tasteful way to reinvent a pair of old stompers. A little accent to breathe new life into your wardrobe, and nary a few dollars were spent.
In this case, I replaced old worn brown laces with some nice warm red ones. Now, let it be known that being too matchy is a no-no for a #GNTLMN, but I couldn’t help but smile when I discovered the laces to be the exact same color as the red in our GNTLMN x Strawfoot Tote Bag.
GNTLMN Travel Log - Ann Arbor
On my way back from Elk Lake I just had to stop by the gorgeous town on Ann Arbor, MI. Home to the University of Michigan, Ghostly International, Zingerman’s, and much more. Recommended, especially in the fall.
GNTLMN Customer Profile - Taylor Anderson
Taylor is a recent re-transplant from the West Coast who made the GNTLMN x Strawfoot Tote Bag one of his first purchases upon his return to Brooklyn. He snapped some shots of a recent afternoon in Central Park. Note the timeless Ray-Ban sunglasses case, white Vans, an empty bottle of Champagne, and what we will call an throwback vintage cell phone. Looks like a great afternoon on Sheep’s Meadow.

A GNTLMN’s Bachelor Party - The Michigan Edition, Part 1 of 4
After a wonderful weekend in upstate New York for Jay’s bachelor party two weeks ago, we found ourselves in Michigan for yet another fine GNTLMN’s last days as a bachelor. Miguel Senquiz, of Ghostly and Drip.FM fame, is tying the knot with his favorite person Theresa in mere weeks. To celebrate the occasion a handful of fine gents and one lady made their way up to the very northern part of Michigan, to the glorious Elk Lake. - Wesley

GNTLMN Customer Profile - Jarrod Zinser
Jarrod was one of the very first people to purchase the limited edition GNTLMN x Strawfoot Tote Bag and works as a Speech-Language Pathologist and Autism Specialist for the Leon County school system in Tallahassee, FL. A fine GNTLMN indeed, aiding society and looking good while doing it. Jarrod tweeted this Instagram of his tote out in the wild. Make note of his shoes, Vans for J.Crew. Excellent choice.
