Quaint Miami colloquialism circa 1940: “You don’t know sh*t from Shinola.”
Quaint Miami colloquialism circa now: “Shinola has just opened in Wynwood. It’s the latest outpost from the Detroit-based makers of handsome-as-all-hell watches, leather footballs and bikes, and this is what it looks like.”
Just… pretend that was both quaint and a colloquialism.
Regardless, there’s just enough space in this narrow, wood-shelved corridor to house all of the stuff you’ll likely be gifting to a few worthy recipients in the coming month. Stuff like…
The navy-colored Brakeman watch made with a football-leather strap. The name comes from the railway guys who used to apply the brakes on individual wagons in the early 1900s. Which is a strong choice for the person who isn’t exactly delicate in their sensibilities. We’re sure you know someone.
The three-speed Bixby cruiser bike for the friend who insists on thwarting Miami traffic by not driving a car. Silly friend.
An American-tanned, Horween-leather passport wallet for that coworker who’s always finding an excuse to get down to Brazil. It’s got five card pockets and an unlined slot for a passport. They’ll even monogram it with your giftee’s initials.
