This week, we’ve found some handsome shoes from one of Britain’s premier cobblers, Grenson—and you can’t get them anywhere but Perks. Plus, we’ve handpicked our favorite stock of ties and accoutrements (like pocket squares) from Los Angeles’s Gentry. The dagger-shaped tie bar means business.
Things to do for June 02, 2011
Golfing, Mr. T and Shipwrecked Champagne
The week sweats. The weekend glistens.
Finding a Tee Time with Technology
There’s only one thing harder than golf: getting three friends in the same place at the same time. This site blocks out everyone’s free hours the next four weekends and lets you group-vote on the final course and tee time. Hopefully your caddie’s free, too.
Drinking 160-Year-Old Champagne
Just 160 short years ago, a shipwreck sank a wealth of champagne off the coast of Finland. Now two of the bottles are arriving on the auction block, offering a taste of some of the world’s oldest bubbly. We hear it goes great with fish.
Finally, a chance to expand your barbecue repertoire beyond sausages, burgers and the occasional misplaced carrot. This Teflon tray lets you melt undiluted cheese over your grill, to be added to whatever else crosses your plate. Use your new powers only for good...
The First Online Vending Machine
The vending machines that kept you in Milky Ways for so long have finally gone online. This site lets you choose between classics like candy bars, gum and chips, and have a bundle of 24 sent to you wherever you like. Next stop: the virtual water cooler.
Photos of Cool People, Hanging Out
You’ve long suspected Nancy Reagan and Mr. T were secretly best friends—and now there’s proof. Kind of—this photoblog catches famous and unlikely pairings like Kanye and Prince Harry, or Woody Allen and Michael Jackson, just hanging out. We’ll assume Liza was behind the camera.
