Write On: Brass Fob Watch Chain and Retractable Pencil, ca. 1930s

I shouldn't have eaten Pop-tarts for breakfast again...

Fob chains have made their way back into the fold after many years, most likely due to a strong showing of waistcoats within menswear circles.

While pairing chains with a pocket watch is an option, I like mixing it up a bit with an old key, pocket knife or – as pictured – a pencil. This one is brass and nickel and features a cool little slide mechanism which shields the lead tip when it’s not in use.

Just when you thought there was no use for those pesky IKEA pencils…
