We’ve seen a lot of lanyards in our day–seems like every leather craftsman carries at least one style of the smallest of Small Leather Goods–but most of them seem rather superfluous to us. If you have one, you have one…and, if you have the right one, it’ll last you the rest of your life. But lanyards are definitely more practical than interesting, in our opinion. That is, until we saw this rugged yet smart take on the (denim!) lanyard from the folks at Railcar Fine Goods. Made of tried-and-trusted Cone Mills denim, it’s both visually interesting and a signal to your fellow denim-junkies that you know what’s what. Head over to Railcar to see for yourself– and check out their house jeans while you’re at it. After all, you’ve got to have somewhere to hook that thing. Get it here.
