AF Soldier Bands

Took a trip out to the Lancaster Village Market this weekend and was expecting just to get some fresh produce. Instead, I discovered Armed Forces Soldier Bands a local company started in 2008 that creates an array of survival bracelets, key chains, lanyards and watches out of Para-Cord, the same material used in parachutes.

Each piece is handmade by retired US Military Veterans and because of the materials versatility and durability, these bracelets are highly popular among military members in harsh environments. These types of bracelets have since gained popularity in the States with outdoor enthusiasts, since they can be unravel into a 9 ft cord that can support up to 300 lb in case of an emergency. Not to worry though. Each piece comes with a lifetime guarantee and if you ever do break it, they replace it for free.

With over 50 colors to choose from, the color combinations are limitless; offering options for your favorite sports teams, service campaigns, school colors, or whatever other color combinations you can come up with.

Pre-made as well as custom orders are available for purchase on their website.

I was introduced to The Boxcar Boys on my way into work this morning listening to the Toronto’s Jazz 91 FM, and what a great way to start a Friday.

The Toronto-based group of five young performers deliver a veritable gumbo of wild gypsy, old-jazz, klezmer, and folk music always performed with a good-time New Orleans spirit. Doing so, I might add, all while looking rather Dandy.

With an ever expanding repertoire of new quirky original tunes and fun favorites (everything from high-and-lonesome country hits to obscure 1930s Dixieland numbers), they perform regularly around town anywhere good music is found.

While their music is just plain fun to listen to, their live shows are apparently even more enjoyable. When the audience erupts in dance The Boxcar Boys often step off stage and join in on the fun without missing a beat, and the bands keen spirit of improvisation ensures that no two performances are ever the same.

After listening to their album Don’t Be Blue on Spotify this morning, Jägerbomb Blues might be on repeat for most of the day. Give it a listen below.

Almost one month today the wife, Ma and Pa Dandy and myself took a trip up to Niagara Falls to celebrate the wife’s birthday. While there may have been a bit too many tourists that day, it was still amazing to stand in awe of one of Natures great wonders.

As most people know, the view on the American side isn’t as nice as the Canadian side, but the historic Maid of the Myst ride provides you with as close up a view of the falls as anyone would hope to get to. I was just flipping through some old photos this evening and thought I’d share a couple…

PS. If you look closely, you might be able to spot a certain Buffalo Blog Polo shirt that is going to be available for purchase soon.

Just reading over Park & Bond’s latest interview with GQ Creative Director Jim Moore who, over the last 30 years, has become one of the most influential men in American menswear.

When asked what he thinks is next for menswear, Jim has this to say:

“I think things are going to start getting a little more Dandy. I don’t have a crystal ball, but if we’re having this conversation a year from now we might be talking British. We’re going to go back to a ticket pocket on your suit jacket, and pant cuffs, and monkstrap shoes, and a brighter pink dress shirt with a bottle green tie. Also, there’s a word I’ve been using around here, and I can’t wrap my head around if I think it’s a good word, but the word is swanky. It’s taking that extra care, whether it’s to wear a cooler pair of sunglasses, or a turtleneck with a suit, or a brightly colored sock. Those head-turning elements. There’s a big ‘70s vibe out there. And you’ll see it in our pages over the next few months.”

So get ready for GQ to get a little more Dandified in the coming months. As usual, Buffalo Dandy will keep bringing you the latest and greatest in its ongoing effort of make Buffalo just a little more Dandy.

For now, just wanted to thank everyone for reading.

It’s easy to grin
When your ship comes in
And you’ve got the stock market beat.
But the man worthwhile,
Is the man who can smile,
When his shorts are too tight in the seat.

Here are some shots from James Marsden’s spread in the upcoming September issue of GQ. Some great upcoming color combinations and the I’m totally digging the slimmer cut tweed suits. While I may not be down with the tucking in of the tie look, I am 100% on board with the tweed and checkered shirt combo with matching sock highlights. Officially stoked for Fall. Thanks GQ.

PS. Check out his skinny tie bar.
