“I’m looking for something that says ‘Hobo Likes Leather’.”

The Old Leather Man was a proto-hobo who has been preserved by history because (as mefites learned back in 2007)
- He wore a 60-pound “boot suit” made entirely of leather
- He roamed a 365-mile path around the state and part of New York roughly every 34 days.
- His identity was a mystery. (Could he have been the disgraced Jules Bourgelay? Well, no, actually - we learned in 2008 that that was a hoax.)
