And there’s more, but let’s save it for the next post. I promise it will be sooner than this last one – much sooner!
A new post written by Leah Morrigan on “The Key of He” blog features vintage Kingpin’s Hideaway items from the 1930s. Ms. Morrigan’s article discusses the key role that wardrobe played in the movie “The Sting” and you may read it here.
Among the Kingpin items featured are:
1930-era silk tie available at Kingpin’s Hideaway.
Snap-together composite and mother-of-pearl cuff links available at Kingpin’s Hideaway.
