AITA’s stocking these uber-limited (200 pairs total), Joe Strummer-inspired, made-just-about-everywhere straight-leggers, which employ indigo selvedge denim loomed in NC and get stitched in SF before getting hit with a label stamped on a swath of leather from Portland, OR’s Tanner Goods, even though most would argue that Aunt Becky was “great” and Danny was “kinda the worst”.

What price preservation? Planned razing of Pines Lodge and Tamworth Inn strikes a nerve among preservationists
By Tom Eastman
Preservation has been in the news in Mount Washington Valley this week, centered on plans to raze two local landmarks. The first property is the Pines Lodge and Motel, the oldest of which once served as turn-of-the-century lodging quarters for workers of the Redstone Quarry.
The second property slated to be razed is the Tamworth Inn, which was purchased April 29 by Steven Grasse of Philadelphia and Tamworth.
News stories in The Conway Daily Sun over the past week about the two properties prompted discussions on this paper's Facebook site and on the Tamworth Exchange electronic community page.
