the pliqo bag.

So a couple years ago Delta Airlines stole my favorite suit. I had very recently purchased, and had tailored, a brand new italian wool, charcoal with light grey windowpane two-button suit. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever owned. Ever. It was like looking into the face of an angel. 

I gave it to the flight attendant to hang in the closet during the flight. Then, Delta failed to return it to me when I left the plane, and when I contacted customer support, they were "unable to locate it". So that was super cool. Like, really cool. Like, so cool I went into a deep depression and became a recluse for the next 12 years. 

Luckily, I've come up with the perfect solution for this type of problem: don't freaking trust an airline with anything you care about. The Pliqo suit bag is the tangible version of that solution.

Finally, a suit bag that actually folds without wrinkling the living hell out of your suit. And so small, you can actually keep it with you, whether as a shoulder bag, strapped to your carry on, or just in your normal luggage.

I've already put in my order, but if my recommendation isn't enough to sell you, check out their kickstarter video and see for yourself. You can thank me later.

Has anyone else ever had a similar experience on an airline, or am I just the most unlucky human?

vuori.

Ho.Ly.Crap. You guys, I've found the holy grail of shorts. First of all, it's important to point out that I'm not much of a shorts-wearing person. Like, generally, unless I'm going to the gym or playing soccer, I'm not going the shorts route. I'm jeans all day. But alas, my mind has been opened to beauty that is Vuori. 


Our friends over at Vuori sent us over a couple pairs and I've been wearing them nonstop ever since. These things are insanely comfy. They're crazy lightweight, they stretch in every direction, and they hold up like a champ. 

Made from 4-way stretch fabric and an anti-odor finish built, these shorts are moisture wicking and quick drying. I've worn them to the gym, to the beach, to the park, our to run errands, and at all times around the house.

There are two main fits (not including the board-short specific fit): the Kore and the Banks. The Kore is a bit slimmer, but honestly, both designs are killer and are super versatile, and come in sooo many color/pattern options.

 

I love these things so much, I immediately bought two additional pairs. Yeah, they're THAT good. Do yourself a favor, and pick some up.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck.

Just picked up this gem and it's a breath of fresh air. Finally, a lifestyle improvement book that doesn't hinge on flowery, non-sensical, anecdotal phrases about turning lemons into lemonade or some other fruit into a tasty beverage. This book tells it like it is. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it."

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life. It's pretty inexpensive and pretty enjoyable to get through. I highly recommend picking it up.

But if you prefer, feel free to read through some hot garbage like The Secret so you can just pretend life is full of rainbows and unicorns. Your call.

cold feet.

Admittedly, I no longer live in a place where freezing feet is an issue, but I certainly have not forgotten the terrible feeling of frozen feets. So for those of you who still have to deal with this problem every time it gets cold, or if you're visiting a colder-than-usual place and want to keep your toes toasty, I've got the solution.

Those tiny disposable feet warmers got nothing on these bad boys. Heated shoe insoles that can be controlled by an app. killer.

The kickstarter campaign for these babies has reached its funding goals so production will begin soon. Better sign up quick if you want to get them before they're full priced.

you're welcome.

    A Sudanese-American Rapper from Washington state who doesn't feel the need to rap about drugs, violence, and thug living. Oddisee has a knack for mixing jazzy house beats with east-coast style rap put to meaningful lyrics. Dude's worth taking a listen.

    warby parker spring '16.

    warby parker was a game changer with it's 'home try-on' approach to shopping for prescription frames, but the reason we still like them is because they're frames are always on point and affordable. 

    most of their frames start around a hundred bucks, and with the option to pick 5 pairs to try on in your own home, you really can't go wrong.

    Check out their newest spring line:

    The Kensett - $95

    The Preston - $95

    The Haskell - $145

    The Kensett - $95

    The Burroughs - $95

     

    There are dozens of other styles available on their website. If you're in the market to freshen up the look of your facial region, this is the way to do it.

    every bond watch.

    James Bond has got to be one of the most stylish men on the planet. Yes, he's a fictional character, but the dude still knows how to be dressed by a team of professional tailors and designers amirite?

    One of the most famous bond accessories, aside from the car, and the gun, and the babe on his arm, is the watch. So, for your viewing pleasure, and that random part of your brain that retains trivial knowledge, here is every watch ever worn by james bond:
