Yesterday, I announced the launch of our new community section  on the site. The response so far has been phenomenal. We already have 746 members and there has been a flurry of activity. Members have started groups for pipe smokers, hat wearers, and men who are all about the traditional wet shave. A few people have written some outstanding blog posts. The most popular feature so far seems to be the photo sharing. It’s been really cool to get a look into the lives of AoM readers.

Let’s look at some links.
D’Accord.  I’m a big fan of camp shirts. And I’m a big fan of stuff still made here in the USA. So I’m happy to link to D’Accord , a family owned business that makes manly camp shirts right here at home. Check out their guayaberas as well.
Cool Tools. When you think of tools, visions of hammers and screwdrivers probably dance in your head. But a tool is really anything useful. Cool Tools uses such a definition in reviewing everything from drills to fanny packs to emergency tracheotomy tubes. (Hat tip Rich Ryan)
