Great perspective and reflection piece from NY Times Sketch Guy Carl Richards.
Allen Edmonds Dress Shoes
Buy nice or buy twice. If you’re in need of some new dress shoes (father’s day gift perhaps?), I highly recommend Allen Edmonds. They are amazing quality, made in the U.S.A. and can be recrafted. There are hundreds of stories of men whose shoes have been with them for 10, 15 even 20 years. They are as comfortable as any shoe I own and although pricey, the quality and longevity make it a great purchase. You can find their factory outlet store here: https://shoebank.com/
Makita Cordless Drill
If you’re in the market for a new drill, you can’t beat this one. I have used it and have seen many others use it. Small, lightweight yet powerful, and charges quickly.
