The Inspiration

Blake Mycoskie founder of TOMS shoes

A business should not be all about making money, rather a business should be about elevating people and making their world a better place to live in, this is exactly what TOMS shoes does. For every pair of shoes you buy, TOMS will give a pair to a child in need. How cool is that?

I spent a good portion of my day reading enlightening essays about dandies, neckties, and other sartorial musings found in Film Noir Buff. I thoroughly enjoyed reading everyone of them.
