This week, Perks is taking half off your next pair of cult selvage denim jeans, fresh from the laboratory: the Denim Design Lab. It’s modern-day jean science, with a dash of old-timey alchemy. A little jean alchemy goes a long way.
Things to do for July 29, 2010
Baseball, Espresso and Kate Moss
The weekend is heading down the stretch.
Kate Moss: The Book
This week, we’d like to tell you about a heavy, text-filled tome about the trials of Kate Moss, but sadly, until one comes along, you’ll have to make do with this epic tome, filled with 200 pages of the model in various stages of undress. We know, we’re sorry too.
See Your All-Time Stats
You have a few jerseys. And some souvenir mugs. And, okay, you have a vial filled with Cal Ripken’s sweat. What we’re saying is, you’re a fan. And yet, until now, you couldn’t track your personal fan success stats. But from this day forward—or if your memory’s good, going backward—you can see how well your team did at every game you attended. Let’s hope you can keep your average above the Mendoza Line.
Your Own Personal Mailman
It’s not that you don’t want to take the time to send a personal letter to your dear grandmother/college roommate/former roadie, it’s just that... you don’t want to take the time to send a personal letter. So at this site, you type in your note, and they’ll put it in an envelope, stamp it and drop it in the mail for you. If you ask nicely, maybe they’ll let you lick the envelope.
An Espresso Machine Sans Electricity
You know the drill: It’s raining. You’re in the middle of nowhere. Your phone is dead. A bear is looking at you the way you look at a pastrami sandwich. And worst of all, you don’t have one single drop of artisan espresso. At that dire moment, you’ll want to pull out this thing, an espresso machine that runs only on willpower (also: boiling water and physical pressure).
The Military’s T-Shirts, Now for You
Patton. MacArthur. John Candy in Stripes. All iconic military men, all wearers of standard military-issue underthings. And now, you can put yourself on that list. The military’s official supplier is selling three-packs of T-shirts and briefs online. No comment on the briefs.
