What’s Rob Reading?

Jimmy Lonetti“Jimmy Lonetti: The Throwback Mailman”
By Paul Lukas, Uni Watch

“One reason I took the leap to opening the storefront is because I’m pretty close to retirement from my main job, which is working for the United States Postal Service as a letter carrier. We could do a whole talk on that, because I’m kind of quirky when it comes to my uniforms for the Postal Service. I’m the guy who finds the old patches on eBay, so I take the new patch off my shirt and put on the old one. Everything I have is vintage-looking.” … I was super-curious to learn more about Jimmy Lonetti’s postal proclivities, but that interview was supposed to be about his glove-repair business and I didn’t want to stray off-topic, so we stuck to gloves and saved the postal uniforms for another day. That day, I’m happy to report, is today.”
