Update on Dad's Suspenders Project


It has been a while since I posted about Dad’s suspenders. This was a project I started when my father passed away 1-1/2 years ago. I started collecting distillery lapel pins and put them on his black tuxedo suspenders. Things have grown to the point where a second set of suspenders came into play – the brown ones belonged to my father-in-law, Hooter, who passed away almost seven years ago.


These suspenders hang in my Whiskey Library, and I see them almost all day while I work. It is like Dad and Hooter are here with me.


Dad loved traveling to Europe and Asia. His suspenders get the world distillery pins. Hooter was a USAF Vietnam veteran and a huge patriot, so his suspenders hold the American pins.


The original idea was Mrs. Whiskeyfellow’s, and I’m so glad I listened to her.
