Brand Admiration: Le Chameau


Last month, blog reader Shepard G., wrote me about his brand preference for Le Chameau, a French boot-maker and outdoor clothing company. Shep has been looking for a U.S. stockist for Le Chameau clothing. But like most Archival brands, Le Chameau is gradually disappearing from view. He writes:

I really like the Le Chameau clothing ‘look’, much more so than Barbour or even Filson. I found a UK site, Swillington Shooting & Stable Supplies, which carries the clothing, but most of the ‘good’ items appear to be sold out. I’d rather order from the US in order to get better prices and avoid horrendous shipping from the UK, but it doesn’t seem that there are any US clothing retailers selling LeC. I remember when I first became interested in the brand a few years ago, they were going to have a website based in Colorado to sell the clothing in the US, but I guess the horrible US-Euro exchange rate killed that. C’est dommage.

Like Shep, I’ve always admired the look of Le Chameau’s beautiful, leather lined Chasseur field boots and Nairobi, 6″ ankle boots (discontinued). But other than the boots (and a snappy corduroy blazer I once saw at Upland Trading Co.), I’ve pretty much ignored Le Chameau’s clothing offerings because they employ so many technical fabrics like fleece, cordura and gore-tex.

Shep’s email, however, prompted me to review current clothing offerings by Le Chameau from UK stockists and Sierra Trading Post. I’ve posted a few images of some more traditional, country clothing type items (in tweeds and corduroys) I might actually regret not buying ten years from now:

Shep was kind enough to take a photo of his personal Le Chameau inventory for the blog. He notes:

The boots are the entry level All Tracks (bought for $80 a few years ago – I could never justify spending $400 for the Chasseurs). I got the boot bag from a local store specializing in upscale hunting/fishing gear that has since shut down. I keep the boots in my truck for emergencies and usually wear them once or twice a year deer hunting. Probably will wear the boots this weekend on a birdwatching excursion with a friend. The migration is in full swing here, and hope to see some geese. I bought the quilted equestrian jacket a few years ago from the Le Chameau website in Colorado (since shut down). Fun thing to wear around town and to Christmas parties. And the aforementioned scarf, which I wear frequently on cold days.

Shep was also kind enough to forward along a few links to some to his favorite Eurpoean hunting and country clothing sites:

  2. Long time lurker, thought I would say hello! I really dont post much but thanks for the good times I have here. Love this place..

    When I was hurt in that truck accident my life would be changed for all time. Unfortunately that driver had no car insurance and I was going to be hurting for ever.

    This was not time for me to start and guess what to do. I had to find a good accident lawyer to help me get what I needed. After all, my family was counting on me.

    How bad was it? I has bedridden for 5 months, I had to have constant care and my hospital bills went through the roof!

    Thank goodness, I found a good referral site to help me.

    I will post more later this month to tell you more about what I have been going through.

    Ideas on How to fulfill Girls in the Shopping mall

    If you might be a single guy and aren’t the perfect at discovering very much much less meeting girls and are wondering wherever you might head to unearth and deal with a gal, then these ten sensible suggestions on how to fulfill a female for the shopping mall, might arrive in mighty handy.

    1 – Go into the meals court. Think it or not, the food court will be the absolute leading destination in your mall to fulfill a girl. Here’s what you do. Pick a foods area and get in line for the meal. While you were in line, appearance all-around the region where by everyone is sitting down and eating. Look for a female sitting alone, or even two women seated together. When you might have your meal in hand, walk over to exactly where she or they can indeed be sitting down and question if it is easy to join them. If you are sincere and straightforward with them, your odds are rather perfect.

    2- Do some pondering. Prior to you even take into consideration going with the shopping mall to fulfill a girlfriend, sit on your own down and do some major considering. Think about how you can meet up with a toddler and what you would possibly say to her if you happen to be effective. Think of which components among the mall you’d go to. Also, you’re likely to should obtain one thing even while there, what do you will need? Eventually, ponder what meeting a young girl in a public destination entails.

At long last, you will have being reasonable about your personal age as well as the ages of the girl you choose to fulfill. As in, you are likely to would need to tell your self being practical and do not try out to satisfy girls that are considerably younger or older than you may be, or that seem out of your league.

    3 – Ask for advice. As soon as you are usually eventually with the mall, a person of a means to fulfill girls is by asking them for assistance. Ladies realize that males have no idea what they are accomplishing once they are purchasing, so asking for assistance will not appear this kind of a ridiculous strategy. Ask for guide in picking out a jacket for your self as an example. Working on so let’s the woman know which you are single. If she agrees to aid you, request her other questions as you grab different jackets to experiment with on.

  14. Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

    Winning the Game

    The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout “Bingo”, your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

    There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

    Bingo Game Rules

    Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it’s good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

    Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren’t supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

    Take note that some Bingo houses don’t allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don’t allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

    Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don’t allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don’t let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don’t recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you’ll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don’t know you might win and need to present credentials.
