Things to do for December 22, 2011
Hats, Sausage and James Bond
The weekend is hanging its stockings on the chimney with care.
Hats from the People Who Hatted Bond
This 17th-century-born hatting outfit created Connery’s trademark trilby for the first Bond movies. Now, you’ll be requiring their services. You’ve got everything here from classic derbies and fedoras to smoking hats and a fez. Basically, everything you need to sneak across the Soviet border with Pussy Galore.
Your Sausage Is in the Mail
If there’s a sausage heaven (please let there be a sausage heaven), it’ll look something like this mail-order operation outta SF. A spiced-chicken-apple holiday variety, a chicken, beer, eggs and cream version and cheddar brats can all be on their way. Provided the delivery guy doesn’t know what he’s got.
Stocking Stuffers from the Ace Hotel
The hoteliers/purveyors-of-refined-miscellany at the Ace Hotel are pulling out all the stops for the holidays. The stops: packages of Pendleton blankets with artisan soaps; vintage Polaroids with coffee-table books; and custom guitar picks with a “You Look Good”–emblazoned skate deck. All skate decks should feature flattery.
Your Phone, Now a 3D Camera
Those blind-item-worthy holiday after-party photos on your phone: shocking. Magnificent. And yet, disappointingly two-dimensional. Next time, you’ll have this app that turns your iPhone into a 3D camera. You’ll need the glasses, but you can print the shots in 3D, too. You know, for art.
70% Off Rag & Bone
Winter is here. Literally: today. Right now. Don’t panic, though. A wonderful world of duffel coats, cashmere and neck-spoiling scarves is here to keep you warm and natty. Your two favorite things to be.
