How to tie your shoes, properly

A future post at oldmanlifestyle will discuss the importance of fine quality shoes and their positive affect on your comfort and wardrobe, but for now we'll focus on shoelace tying.

There are two forms of the common shoelace knot: a weak form and a strong form. We were likely taught the weak form. This TED (no relation) Talk does an excellent job of explaining the benefits of the strong form.

Oldman Furniture

Most people associate the oldmanlifestyle with ugly recliners from Levitz, Lay-Z-Boy, etc. They think the oldmanlifestyle is about comfortable but ugly furniture. This assumption is incorrect.

The oldmanlifestyle is about passionately appreciating furniture that you like, despite what others may think of it. Ugly/attractive, traditional/modern, stained/not-stained... it's all up to the Oldman.
