I'm sick of the same old boring, ceramic mugs. They have no character, and if you have to travel with them, you're SOL.
The Original Aviator Mug from Loyal Stricklin peaked my interest, though. There's nothing complicated about it--it's simply a mason jar wrapped in Horween Chromexcel leather with a clever leather loop handle stitched on. It's definitely beautiful, and will patina nicely, but what's particularly interesting to me is that you can screw a lid on it and take it with you. Plus, it's just a mason jar, so you can easily slide it out of the sleeve and pop it in the dishwasher.
Loyal Stricklin is a small company in Alabama that believes in smart and simple design, careful selection of materials, and beauty in products that age gracefully. This thing will last you a lifetime.
