10 MUST-HAVE-X-MAS-PRESENTS | #07 | CHICAGO COMB MODEL No1 MATTE FINISH

there is not much to say about this comb: it is just PERFECT!!! i never possessed such a nice comb which i got from POMADE SHOP here in germany. it is medium long, made of KENTUCKY steel, processed in INDIANA, and finally laser cut and hand polished in CHICAGO: so 100% made in the usa. Matt brushed, satin finished, 5.5 inch long (14 cm) and 1.18 inch high (3 cm) and has 41 teeth, unbreakable and inflexible, perfect to handle. for sure it is resistant to pomades, hair tonics and easy to clean with hot water. this thing from the CHICAGO COMB CO. is a really MUST-TAKE-WITH-YOU-OBJECT. in german we say “this is a HAND SCHMEICHLER” – what means that you have to touch it all the time … pics | LTG





CLASSIC US TIN CUP | by JACOB BROMWELL

found the cup i was ever searching for @ wonderful chicago based INDEPENDENCE store. the cup is made by JACOB BROMWELL. “made of tin. historically accurate and made in small batches without welding or soldering. made by machines built before electricity. made in michigan city, IN.” it’s a pity that the shipping costs are so high, because INDEPENDENCE just ships with UPS. pic | Independence store
