This week’s looking handsome. Because for $100, you’re getting $150 worth of grooming essentials from the likes of Kiehl’s and Baxter Finley. Plus, your backyard’s getting a secret grill, disguised as a potted plant. Finally, take 25% off a portable pro-grade DJ mixer, so easy to use, a caveman could do it.
Things to do for August 16, 2012
Pinup Girls, Cheetahs and a Table That Plays Music
The weekend does its own stunts.
Old-School Pinup Girls: A Study
When Bunny Yeager photographs a bunch of pinup girls bandying about with cheetahs, you listen. Fine, that didn’t make much sense. But Bunny Yeager’s Darkroom does. It’s a new book with hundreds of pictures of vintage starlet types (think Bettie Page) lying around and being relatively clothingless. God does it ever make sense.
A Table That Also Plays Music
Well, it finally happened. Someone just turned your dinner table into a loudspeaker. More specifically, a custom table that’s every bit as comfortable wirelessly streaming your smartphone’s playlist as it is giving you a suitable surface upon which to eat pancakes. We’ll just assume you were looking for something like that.
It’s Gant. They’re Having a Sale.
Gant is having a summer sale. But don’t make a big deal out of it. Or, okay, do. Because you’re looking at up to half off on over 400 pieces of Gant-iness like shawl-collared sweaters and elbow-patched pincord jackets. Fall = soon, after all.
Saturdays Has a Magazine Now
Saturdays. You already know them for things like boardshorts and messenger bags. But go ahead and add magazines to that list. Because they have their own now—think Q&As with Vincent Cassel and Mike D and shots from SI photographer Walter Iooss. Neat. It’s neat that they did that.
Portugal and Your Face
Chances are, you woke up this morning. And chances are, you showered using soap-on-a-rope from a Portuguese grooming supply company that’s been in the game for over a century. Then shaved with patchouli-scented lotion from the same guys. If not, you should probably see Sid Mashburn about that. Probably meaning definitely.
