Leather Golf Bags – How to Care For Them

You’ve always bought the best golf equipment, drivers, irons, putter and wedges. Now, you’ve taken the plunge and bought yourself a really nice leather golf bag and you want to keep it in good condition. Leather golf bags don’t require a lot of maintenance but here are a few tips to keep your bag looking new.

First you need to understand that many leather bags are made out of “naked” leather. “Naked” leather is a dyed leather that has nothing on it to alter the natural state of the leather. As a result, it is usually soft and delicate.

If your bag is made from “naked” leather it is best that you put nothing on it in terms of topical solutions. If you do use anything stick to saddle soap or mink oil to keep the leather moist and soft. However, you should know that applying even these products to your leather bag could create dark areas. Since “naked” leather has no finish it readily absorbs anything applied to it.

Make certain that you test a small area of your bag before applying any significant quantity of mink oil or saddle soap. If you are happy with the results then you can expand to a larger area but work slowly and cautiously.

At this point you may be wondering what do you do to keep your golf bag looking new. First, keep it clean. You should dust you bag with a dry soft cloth made out of cotton or microfibers. Second, store your leather bag in a cool place which is also good advice for the clubs that are inside your bag! Don’t leave a leather bag in the trunk of your car for weeks at a time. Finally, just let the natural oils of the leather bag do their job of keeping the bag moist and supple.

Leather golf bags are a great way to carry your clubs. When properly cared for a leather golf bag should give you a lifetime of golfing pleasure. In addition, leather golf bags provide luxury, class and style.

Made in China – Designer Handbag Fashion Totally Misunderstood

Wow! What’s all this garble about “everything” made in China being counterfeit or fake? Do people understand the design and manufacturing process? Or, are they just determined to squabble about one of the manufacturing industry’s greatest resources?

True, there’s been a lot of media about children’s toys being manufactured poorly. Shame on China for the mess they’ve created. They’ll fix the problem, or they’ll lose business. We all learn from our mistakes, right? Or, at least the smart folks learn. And, let’s face it, China is no dummy!

China has been manufacturing most of the clothing, shoes, handbags, and accessories stocked in all the major department stores throughout the world for many, many years. And, this is not going to fade or go away. China offers low-cost labor for low-end to high-end designer handbags, clothing and just about anything around the house.

Most people don’t understand the truth about the Made in China label. China has been producing most of the Designer Merchandise sold in the USA for very long time. Why? Because the price to manufacture in China keeps prices as low as possible for consumers. People complain about the high price tags on designer handbags, clothing, shoes, and accessories. If the same item made in China was made in the USA or Europe the prices would be doubled or tripled.

If the Hermes Birkin bag was assembled by hand in China instead of France, the price would not be $7,000.00 each. If Italian leather was sent to China for the assembly of Prada handbags, the prices would not be $3,000.00 each. Please put things into perspective.

Burberry’s new management decided to use China for some of its assembled manufacturing needs and people went crazy. The thought of using a designer handbag made in China is misunderstood, misinterpreted, and misguided. The product made in China consists of the same quality of fabric as if it were made in the USA, France, England or Italy. The only difference is the designer item was assembled in China, or any other country offering a cheaper assembly manufacturing process.

Most of the high-end Designers buy fabrics, leathers, and materials from the USA or Europe, pay a premium price for the high-quality fabrication, and then negotiate manufacturing in China. The materials and specifications are sent to China and made. Representatives from each of the Design Houses travel to China or other manufacturing countries to supervise the process. The finished products are shipped to the USA and other parts of the world for sale. It’s a process kept sweet and as simple as possible. It creates jobs and produces a global economy.

Most consumers don’t know the designer manufacturing process or understand the details. They see a Made in China label and assume it’s a counterfeit item or fake. In reality, it’s not. It’s a moderately priced item made in a country which has been stereo-typed. And, we can’t blame the consumer because most of the junk, counterfeit and fake merchandise bearing the trademarks of others are made in China. Hopefully, the USA Customs Department working closely with the fashion industry will help end importing counterfeit goods.

There are many countries available the fashion designers use to outsource labor. The high-end leather designer handbags with high-ticket price tags are made in the USA, Italy, London and France. The lower cost designer products are made elsewhere. Most designers offer collections every season which provide both high-end and lower priced products. For example, Ralph Lauren has five price and fabrication determined collections: RL Classics, Collection, Black Label, Blue Label and Lauren. Plus, many of the designers produce a separate collection for outlet stores and discount stores like Marshalls, TJ Max, Target, Walmart, etc.

Some of the countries are more commonly used than others, and nonetheless they are countries with capabilities and low-cost labor. Some of these countries include, and are not limited to China, Turkey, Mexico, Romania, India and Portugal.

Fashion designers who make designer handbags, designer wallets, designer scarves, designer clothing, hats, shoes, etc. use these countries because they can sell their products at affordable prices. Some of the fashion designers include, and are not limited to Coach, Burberry, Liz Claiborne, Robert Rodriquez, Max Studio, Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Dooney & Bourke, Juicy Couture, Donna Karan, Anne Klein, Brighton, and many, many others.

Just because an item is Made in China, it does not constitute fake or counterfeit. Let’s get this straight and communicated clearly. The reason the item was made in China is because at that point in time, the designer’s manufacturing team decided it was the best business decision to make for a cost-effective distribution of its product and collection.

The next time you see a Made in China label on a designer handbag or accessory, and you purchased it from a reputable source, thank your lucky stars for the bargain price you paid. If you have any doubt, take the item to the designer’s boutique for authentication and peace of mind. Don’t assume just because it’s Made in China it’s a fake. You know what assuming does, right?

Snake Proof Boots – Good Idea Or a Bunch of Hooey?

Snake proof boots, also often commonly referred to as just snake boots, are a great bit of outdoor clothing protection against venomous snake bites. But snake boots are also a little bit controversial, since there is some argument over whether or not they are necessary.

Some people say that normal hiking boots or regular cowboy boots can stop snake bites, but they’re not specifically designed for this and the difference between coming out of a snake bite completely unharmed or taking some major venom from a big rattlesnake is an awfully big difference to risk on a “maybe.”

Can normal cowboy boots stop a rattlesnake bite? Maybe. The answer you get depends on who you ask, and at least searching around online will give you answers on both sides of the field, so it’s hard to figure out who’s telling the truth, who isn’t, or if this is just one of those questions that has a lot of gray and no clear cut answer.

Snake proof boots, on the other hand, stop snake bites from pit vipers and any other type of venomous snake you might run into. Period, end of statement. These boots will stop a snake bite, while there is still a major debate over whether or not cowboy boots, or normal hiking boots, actually do the same or not.

If you are going to be in an area that is known for having a lot of venomous snakes, especially if you are “out in the boondocks” where quick medical attention might be impossible, why in the world would you trust your safety to normal hiking boots instead of snake proof hiking boots? Why wear normal rubber boots in the swamp, when you can be wearing snake proof rubber swamp boots?

The question on whether or not snake boots are really necessary might continue to rage on, but as to the question of whether or not snake boots are a scam, the answer is simple: no. This type of footwear is designed to prevent the wearer from being injected with snake venom, and that’s exactly what these specialty boots do.

Snake boots come in many forms, so whether it is for hunting wild turkey in a southern swamp, or going on a long adventure hike on the Appalachian Trail, there is a pair of snake proof boots that should be perfect for whatever you need them for. Why take a chance? Find a great pair of snake boots, and walk in secure confidence!

Red Wing Boots: Wearing Them With Jeans

Red Wing shoes can be worn with jeans, in fact it is actively encouraged! Boot-cut style jeans look the best as their slightly flared bottoms give plenty of space to comfortably fit over the shoes and allow them to naturally show off their shape and form.

Generally speaking, you should avoid skinny-fit and slim-cut style jeans when you wear Red Wing shoes. Skinny jeans are designed to fit straight to your skin, giving no room for your boots or to move around in. One exception to this rule, is if you’re going for an alpine-punk look, in which case distressed skinnies would look great with your Red Wing shoes. If you have a pear shape body, or if your legs are a little chubby, you can wear slouchy or baggy jeans. Pear shaped and larger people should generally try to avoid skinny and tight jeans as they fit to your legs very tightly and so it’s a very unflattering look for them. If you’re in doubt, leave them out!

As mentioned at the beginning of this article, the best look comes from boot cut jeans as they have a slight flare at the bottom which allows even the largest models of Red Wing boots to fit snugly underneath. However, if you do not like boot cuts or feel that the weather is too hot or otherwise unsuitable for them, there are a couple of other options. Firstly, you can wear cropped jeans or pants – these are jeans that are designed so that they stop above your feet, often just three quarters of the way down your leg. When paired with Red Wing shoes, these will appear to stop just above where your shoe begins, giving a very natural looking transition from pants to shoes.

The second way of getting around the boot-cut jeans problem is to roll the bottoms up. This can be done on any style except for the tightest styles of jeans and pants, but is especially good on straight-cut jeans as they give an even roll-up. If your jeans are a raw denim style, dark color or feature a very distinctive or dominant selvage, it is already very on-trend and fashionable to wear your jeans with roll-ups. The best roll-ups are those about 3-4 inches in height, and sit just on the peak or slightly below the top of the shoe. If you are wearing Red Wing boots rather than shoes, take take to overlap a few inches of the boots as otherwise you will look unbalanced and disproportionate. If you’re wearing Red Wing shoes, feel free to wear the jeans rolled up so that they are sitting just above the top of the shoe.

If you’re wearing your Red Wing shoes in a casual way, be sure to accessorize correctly. Try to wear a belt that matches the shade of your boots or shoes. They need not be an exact match, but avoid mistakes like wearing a green belt with a mahogany colored shoe. If the weather demands it, do not forget to match up your outfit with a hat and scarf. If you are not sure what color your hat and scarves should be, try this to begin with. Match your scarf with your belt – the more exact the match the better. For the hat, you’ll need a similar (but not identical) color and a similar ‘spirit’. Extravagant scarves require extravagant hats. Do not match a 3-tone, goose feather, body-curler scarf with a blue and red baseball cap. Keep things simple to start with too. Once we you gain a little confidence you can start experimenting with different colors and styles. If you insist on wearing gloves, try to get those that match with the belt and scarf.

When shopping for Red Wing shoes, it is vital that you get the right size. They must not be too tight around your feet and legs as that would detract from the flexibility it would offer. On the other hand, they must not be too loose so that they slop behind you as you walk. This would lead to blisters, uncomfortable feet and potentially risking falling over and injuring yourself.
