Things to do for February 21, 2013
Girls in White Tank Tops, McQueen’s Race Car and Todd Snyder
The weekend just learned how to pronounce Quvenzhané.
McQueen Drove This. Now It’s Your Turn.
Once upon a time, Steve McQueen starred in a movie called Le Mans. He drove a 1969 Lola T70 MKIII B in that movie. Long name, though. So you can just call it “McQueen’s incredibly fast, inappropriately beautiful race car that’s now up for auction.” It’s just easier that way.
Now Sale-ing: Todd Snyder Winter Things
Todd Snyder’s a great guy. Partly because he designs things like Italian wool pants and the kind of button-downs that someone who really appreciates a good button-down can appreciate. But also because that stuff is up to 68% off right now. Yep, mostly that.
Girls. White Tank Tops. That’s It.
Here’s a Tumblr of girls wearing plain white tank tops and not much else. It’s called Plain White Tank. So whenever you get a chance, take a look at that. Good deal.
Your Inbox, Now a Record Store
In London, there’s a record label called Rough Trade. Been around since the ’80s. Real High Fidelity–type stuff. Put out the Smiths. And the Strokes. Anyway, they just launched a new service that sends six never-before-heard tracks to your inbox each week from their personal collection. Yes, this could get deep-cut-y.
Your Scotch. It Needs This.
Great news: we found you a really marvelous-looking handblown, hand-etched, Czech crystal decanter and tumbler set to pour scotch out of. So when you do that, it’ll be all aesthetically pleasing now. Well, more so.
