We heard you’re headed to the beach. Here’s 20% off a custom-tailored surfboard, c/o Swami’s and Paul Smith, to help. Also: limited-edition boat shoes from Rancourt and 28% off the best damn umbrella in the world from Blunt. Hey, when it rains, it pours.

All the Sunglasses and Old-Timey Flasks You’ll Ever Need
It’s going to be a wet hot American weekend.
Grilling Like an Old Italian Butcher
Picture a legendary Italian restaurant in Harlem. One that opened in 1896. One with only 10 seats. One called Rao. Now picture it being a cookbook chock-full of owner Frank Pellegrino Jr.’s grill-specific family recipes like lobster fra diavolo. Now stop picturing it and light some charcoal.
If Doc Holliday Were a Flask
Let’s hear it for old-timey cowboys. The six-shooters. The shaving with buck knives. The handmade copper flasks with vintage wooden stoppers made specifically for housing barrel-aged American whiskey. Bravo, gents... bravo. Oh, and about that flask part, we found a guy who wants to make you one of those. Tip: let him.
Liam Gallagher Made Sunglasses for You
Fact: protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays is important. Opinion: looking amazing is more important. Exhibit A—Pretty Green (from the Oasis guy) has a new mélange of sunglassery involving tortoiseshell square frames and circular numbers that look straight out of John Lennon’s personal collection. Usually not a bad thing.
An Unnecessarily Handsome Compass
We don’t know where you live. But chances are you’d prefer not to get lost there. All the more reason to wear a compass around your neck. Especially if it’s an incredibly handsome one. That’s made out of laminated maple. And East Indian rosewood. And basically looks nothing like a compass.
