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?

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.

how to create a unique/successful minimalist watch brand.

This. is. gold. I can't take credit for writing this, but it's just so good I had to share it. I think this is happening in a lot of areas besides just minimalist watches, but this is spot on.

north face x supreme spring/summer '17.

well, if you were debating buying a North Face jacket at a higher than reasonable price, and just weren't sure if you wanted to pull the trigger on a $120 seasonal layer, don't worry! Because now, you can spend 3 times that much on a jacket with the word "Supreme" on it!

 

That's right, the North Face x Supreme collaboration is back for spring/summer 2017 and the full line has been announced for the low low price of ALL YOUR MONIES.

Not interested in a jacket at the moment? no worries, you can spend $368 on some ski pants meant for the streets in case there's a freak snowstorm on your way to work.

I know I sound cynical, but that's just because I totally am. I honestly think that Supreme collabs are usually super fresh. But to be honest, I'm a little tired of the price you have to pay these days to have the word "supreme" on something. Maybe that's just me. Take a look at the full line below and see the prices at the bottom and you tell me if I'm wrong.

Gore-Tex® Pullover: $488
Gore-Tex® Pant: $368
Polartec® Fleece Jacket: $268
Big Haul Backpack: $158
Headband: $54

ultraboost hits the pitch.

adidas has now announced three different colorways in their line of ultraboost soccer cleats. "triple white", "triple black", and "silver pack" (triple grey may have been a more consistent name?). 

I haven't had the opportunity to try them out myself, but these boots are ridiculously good looking. 

a primeknit upper and three structured stripes are designed to lock the foot down while giving a soft touch on the ball and added control for strikers. And don't forget the hybrid boost technology in the sole which promises to a comfortable experience.

The silver pack is scheduled to release February 5th, but dates for other color options has not yet been announced. Finally, something to look forward to.

nike presto flyknit.

Nike has released a much more attractive update to the presto shoe--The nike air flyknit presto ultra.

It seems like a handful of nike shoes are getting the ol' ankle-sock upgrade treatment lately, so I've got to assume it's been received well thus far. I know I love my soccer cleats with the ankle boot, so it stands to reason that I'd be into it with a runner or casual shoes as well.

This thing looks breathable AF, and comfy too--made out of knit that looks like a dang crocodile skin from the top.

 

  • Flyknit upper conforms to your foot for lightweight support
  • Signature TPU cage delivers midfoot support
  • Sockliner and sole cut-outs enhance breathability and flexibility
  • Injected unit sole provides lightweight comfort and durability
  • Mid-cut collar delivers a snug, supportive fit
  • Waffle-inspired outsole with durable rubber pods for traction

  • I imagine this will come in other colorways but for now, I'm all about that white on white. Daaaayyyyuummmmm Nike, back at it again with the white prestos.

    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.
