Several years ago I was doing an event at Mitchell’s in Westport, CT and in walks in Dave Ruden. I noticed him right away because of his terrible choice in jeans. I approached him and inquired about what he was thinking. Like most men, the response was, “I like being comfortable.” Sure, that is great but why bother, just wear a damn Snuggie and really be comfortable. Who would have known that a wonderful relationship would have started this way? Over the years, we have become really good friends. In fact, we even named a sock after him. Dave is a warm-hearted, sincere man and is a great ambassador for the VKN brand. He made the VKN brand a part of his family, introducing us to his brother Jeff, an equally great guy. He is slowly introducing us to select people from his world and letting them in on the VKN secret. Salute, Mr. Ruden, and yes, we will eventually advertise with the Ruden Report.
