This Weekend, You Commandeer Clooney’s Car

No pain, no the weekend.

Play Sports. Look Amazing.

We trust your wardrobe is already sufficiently canoe-friendly. We trust that. But you’ll still want to check out Orlebar Brown’s new lineup of running, surfing, swimming and canoeing gear—think snug nylon boardshorts, quick-drying long-sleeve shirts and “sport briefs.” Which are basically Speedos. From Portugal. For sports.

Commandeering Clooney’s Tesla Roadster

There’s an online auction coming up. You’ll hate it, though. Nothing for you. Unless, of course, you’re into the whole “owning Clark Gable’s 1935 Duesenberg Model JN Convertible Coupe or George Clooney’s Tesla Roadster” thing. In which case, have at it. Beats Freddie Prinze Jr.’s 2012 Kia Sorento.

OH, BABY

Nothing Against Babies, But...

Sometimes people post pictures of their babies on Facebook. And sometimes you don’t care. Don’t get us wrong, they’re cute and fat and stuff.

And then you’re going to look at hundreds of live Instagram pics that people are taking in those particular cities at that particular time. It’s like non-creepy voyeurism. Okay, less creepy.

This Is a Sale. It’s from Sid Mashburn.

Sid Mashburn. Maybe you’ve heard of the guy. Lives in the South. Stitches together a mean wool hopsack suit. Well, he’s having a little summer sale right now. Which means Sartorio gun-check jackets. And pink seersucker pants. And... using less cash to put them on your body.
