PERK ALERT

30% Off the Season’s Latest Swimwear

Summer’s here and you wouldn’t mind a little recreational dipping. Perks gets that, and we’ve got you covered... from waist to knee. With Onia’s classic line of swimsuits and board shorts—they’re trim, handsome and, for you, 30% off. Any more would be skinny dipping.

WEATHER OR NOT

The Forecast for 2012

You’re a rambler. Twelve months from now, you may wake up in a cave in Belize or in a hammock on the Mongolian high plains. But when you do, you’ll know one thing: the weather, thanks to an iPhone/iPad app that forecasts one year ahead. Hint: pack an umbrella.

TRAMPING

Chaplin’s Bowler and Marilyn’s Dress

We won’t get into why you’re in the market for an elaborate costume. All we’ll do is point you toward this auction, where you can pick up Chaplin’s original bowler, Heston’s Ben-Hur outfit and Marilyn Monroe’s Seven Year Itch dress. Subway breeze sold separately.

Avoiding the Shameful Status Update
FOR SHAME

Avoiding the Shameful Status Update

Apropos of nothing, we think it’s time you had an angel on your shoulder, helping you reconsider posting photos of your Thai weekend—in case you ever want to, oh, legislate. This program flashes an ominous warning whenever you’re about to update Facebook or Twitter. Alert your local congressman.

Face Bombs, Mud and Your Father
THE BOMB

Face Bombs, Mud and Your Father

Your face: believe it or not, there’s a next level. To help you get there: the Cigar Box Shave Sampler, which includes, among other things, something called “Face Bomb,” a muddy ball of walnut shells and facial cleanliness. Which your dad has always mentioned wanting.

Your New Jeans and Nothing Else
JEAN POOL

Your New Jeans and Nothing Else

Yes, it’s hot. But a new pair of selvage jeans knows no temperature. Especially when they’re crafted from WWII-era Swiss Army bed linens and American denim by vintage god Oliver Harkness. By fall, they’ll be like a part of your family. The part that’s modeled after ’60s Levi’s.
