12" Khaki GAP Cargo Shorts Iconic Review
"It's not always practical to drop our workaday worries for a trip into the woods, so you might find it worthwhile to bring the "simple pleasures" inside. It's also a lot easier. Fording a stream is dangerous; reading about it from the comfy corner of your three-piece sectional is not. But the Kaufmann Mercantile Guide is not merely an SAS Survival Guide for the craft set: caring for raw denim, soap-making, and gutting fish are just a few of the old-timey skills that'll get you through the artisanal apocalypse."

Iconic 12" Cargo Khaki Shorts GAP
If this same group was to make another series of books that were of the same quality but were more focused on specific topics (like, "the KM guide to caring for indoor house plants and flowers"), and made a commitment to seriously reign-in on the in-book advertising, I would seriously consider purchasing it.
