Men In Bucks?

Photos by Salt Water New England
A Reader Question:
I have a question.  I used to see Bucks all of the time but now I am much less aware of them.  Do people still wear Bucks?  White or Dirty?   What brands?  And if not, what are alternatives?

In Case You Missed It...

“Travelers themselves are concerned about their health and the amount of time they’re away from home”...

We live in a time in which the smarter you look in public life, the more out of touch you are perceived to be. This makes no sense. By looking at the Moggster’s suits, they are almost certainly old and made in Britain by talented British artisans. He clearly makes an effort to be presentable and appears to believe that showing up to a place where he represents the people requires a reverence that he can express through the clothes he wears. I wish more were like him.

Now the anti-hunting crowd is targeting the annual grouse shoots, which take place on a few hundred private, often vast estates in northern England and Scotland, beginning, per the Game Act of 1831, on the day they call “the Glorious Twelfth” in August and ending in December.

The 2017 nesting season was the most productive on record for a group of vulnerable Maine puffins, scientists with the Audubon Society said. 

Black last returned to the top in the midst of the financial crisis, in 2009, after years of noughties prosperity when shiny silver cars proliferated. Red cars have fallen out of favour, however, as they slipped out of the top five. Pink and mauve are also on the wane, according to figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.

The company’s announcement to close stores nationwide follows a steady decrease in J.Crew sales over the past few years. The company’s announcement of third quarter earnings revealed a net loss of $161,576,000 over the first nine months of 2017. And the decline is only accelerating: In the first nine months of 2016, the losser totaled $24,568,000. The company announced plans last week to close 39 stores in the fourth quarter, twice the number it had previously projected.

Gavin Stamp... fought for the preservation of many historic buildings suffering negligence or threatened with demolition, and against the wanton development of this country’s historic urban fabric.

Those signing up for CSAs and Farm Shares now, when the money is the most appreciated, may find the following story interesting:
[A] growing movement of highly educated, ex-urban, first-time farmers... are capitalizing on booming consumer demand for local and sustainable foods and, experts say, could have a broad impact on the food system. 
For only the second time in the last century, the number of farmers under 35 years old is increasing, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s latest Census of Agriculture.
