Old School Rules uses truth & humor to cut through the trendiness, hype & bull that is today’s culture. We also like to make fun of pseudo-masculinity at either extreme, both macho and metrosexual.
If you’re new here, check out some of the more popular posts: the Chili post, the Coffee post, the
How To Be Batman post, and the legendary
Wilford Brimley Will Kill You In Your Sleep post.
The blog’s audience has been growing like … like… something that grows a lot! (Gotta work on those analogies…) And we want it go grow more.
The Old School Rules
“Get Big! Get Involved!” Contest
First, the Old School Prizes. The winner gets both. An Old School Man is rarely without two things — a quality leather wallet and a pocketknife/multi-tool. Old School Rules wants to make sure the winner has the best in both.
Guaranteed for 100 years! They’ll fight over it when you’re dead. This is the wallet I carry every day. (Don’t worry, you won’t get mine. You’ll get a brand spankin’ new one.) Saddleback Leather products are unmatched, manly, rugged, long-lasting… Old School! Get the scoop on Saddleback Leather (as well as a quick education in all things leather) here.
Like most men, I’ve had dozens of wallets in my life. This will be the last one. It’s just that good.
And another prize. The world will be a better place when every man carries a pocketknife/multi-tool. Introducing…
I make no apologies for sounding over the top. I love this thing.
The name is synonymous with Old School reliability in a multi-tool. This is the model I carry every day. (Don’t worry, you won’t get mine. You’ll get a brand spankin’ new one.) There are larger Leatherman multi-tools, but a larger model is more of a challenge to carry on a daily basis and if I don’t carry it a tool won’t be helpful no matter how good it is. The CS4 is the perfect size to have with you every single day.
Leatherman CS4 Multitool Capabilities:
Needlenose pliers♦ Straight knife ♦Wire cutters ♦Hard-wire cutters ♦Extra-small screwdriver♦ Small screwdriver ♦Medium/large screwdriver ♦Phillips screwdriver♦ Lanyard attachment♦ Can/bottle opener ♦Corkscrew with assist♦ Scissors ♦Saw♦ Awl♦Batman feeling
“A multi-tool is the closest thing you’ll get to Batman’s Utility Belt this side of reality.”
