An Ode to Vintage Gear

I've got a confession to make. During my lifetime, I've purchased a fair amount of crappy gear that I found, for one reason or another, appealing. And because it was cheap. These days, I've got less stuff and I'm more selective about what I buy. I try to only spend my good money on gear that's well-made—U.S.-made is a plus—by transparent, sustainable companies.  

I also try to consume less, in general, which is made easier by these three stellar items that you'd have to pull from my cold dead hands.
