Things to do for April 05, 2012
Lingerie, Baseball and Hair Gin
The weekend is working on a hostile takeover of Cadbury.
60% Off Kiki de Montparnasse
There’s a word for people who think to make underwear out of a chiffon bow: genius. Like the kind and caring folks at Kiki de Montparnasse, who are currently offering their very attractive underthings and nighttime clothing for a song. Money works, too.
Spiked Grooming Stuff from NYC
Your hair could really use a drink right now. And this hop-infused 60-proof wax and 90-proof pomade from Blind Barber in New York should sate the thirst. There’s also a gin-based shaving cream and aftershave. Because your face could loosen up, too.
Wearing a Baseball on Your Feet
You like America’s pastime. And you’ve got feet. Related: Allen Edmonds is making custom boat shoes from Rawlings glove leather and stitching. You can put your favorite team’s logo on them, and they’ll look like a baseball meeting a summer in Maine. Hats made from hockey pucks: still a bad idea.
