- Hrothgar Stibbon Leathergoods
- Some nice briefcases, bags, all made in Bristol. (via Men's Flair)
- Links for Monday 5 January 2015

- Video: Kristin Baybars' 'Little Place in Gospel Oak' -
- This toyshop used to be one of the highlights of a stay in London when I was a kid, and it looks like it hasn't changed since. Worth a visit with your own children.

- The Life Behind the Lifestyle Blog — Matter — Medium
- Interview with Ben Hammersley about his personal finances. Very unusual to read his level of detail and it is fascinating. It's difficult to talk about money but I think it would be better to be more open. Tricky though.

- Neo Classic Space
- "LEGO fans around the world have built new models, borrowing the style and colour schemes of those early [Classic Space] sets, but using newer parts and building techniques to add more detail and realism." Some lovely stuff.
- Sass Guidelines
- Really good, whether you agree with all the decisions or not. I now want to reorganise all my Sass files. (via Tom Taylor)

- Why Diners Are More Important Than Ever | Serious Eats
- Partly for the list of NY diners at the end, although the article's good in itself. Lots of the points defining diners also sounded like British cafes ("caffs", not cafés). (via Kottke)
- Links for Saturday 17 January 2015
- The Truth About Your Smile | The Hairpin
- How to brush and care for your teeth. Because, like Kottke, what I know about brushing teeth is made up of very old facts. (via Kottke)
- notes.husk.org. voxsart (via deathbeard): The Merchandizing....
- "Ah, 'Business Casual.' Do you know that it comes from this eight page brochure mailed out to about 25,000 corporate human resources types in 1992?"

- It’s never been more important for design firms to think differently — Medium
- On large buying up design firms, and the worth of independent design firms. I'd like more specific examples of the specialness of some of the example agencies are though. Other than having "a unique perspective". (via @moleitau)

- The problem with Angular - QuirksBlog
- Summary: it's like a front-end framework by back-end developers; "Enterprise IT" and Java devs love it; people learn to only develop front-end stuff in an Angular way; it's inefficient; it's not suitable for modern, production-level front-end code.

- Earth View from Google Maps - Chrome Web Store

- The Most Fascinating Profile You'll Ever Read About a Guy and His Boring Startup | WIRED
- Got round to reading this piece about Stewart Butterfield and Slack. So nice to read about nice start-ups.
- The Ambush at Sheridan Springs — Medium
- "How Gary Gygax Lost Control of Dungeons & Dragons." Possibly more detailed than it needs to be, but a good read if you are/were into that. I was, as a teenager, entirely oblivious to every bit of this, even though I played D&D.
- CABINET // Whitewood under Siege
- Another good article I've finally caught up with via PaperLater. All about the big world of shipping pallets.
- Mr. Miller Doesn’t Go to Washington - Matt Miller - POLITICO Magazine
- "A candidate's memoir." Being a candidate sounds like even less fun than I ever thought it would be.
- The Knowledge, London's Legendary Taxi-Driver Test, Puts Up a Fight in the Age of GPS
- This long, good article everyone linked to a while back is indeed long and good.
