Etsy Find: Vintage Frye Boots

I often find myself buying men's shoes and pairing them with a women's cut jean or pant. I don't know why, but I love the clash of masculinity and femininity in a silhouette. It's like a visible contradiction. I'll just postulate that it plays into my facetious attitude. These vintage Frye boots are sized 9 1/2 D and will cost you $70.

Damn. They're too big for me.

I'd rather have a tricycle.

Jamis Coda

About a month ago, my bicycle was stolen. Only slightly sadden by the occurrence, I was overwhelmingly glad that the event happened. I had my Raleigh mountain bike for too long, 10 years to be exact. It was heavy, unfit for Austin roads, too small, and a little lame. For the past week I've become more serious in my bicycle shopping and have been searching to find something that will suit my commuting needs. I have settled on purchasing the Jamis Coda (pictured above). I'll probably upgrade the seat with a Brooks saddle to add a little more something to it. In my bike hunting, I stumbled across some really well designed bikes. The Charger Plug Ranger and the Traitor Ruben are favorites. I'm thinking of adding a red chain like that on the Charger Plug Racer; it's a nice detail.

That's right. I sold my soul last night out of boredom and I'm now on Twitter. You can find me here or by searching SartorialArch.
