The Weekender

Frank Sinatra, Swimming Trunks and Your Mother

What therefore the weekend hath joined together, let no man put asunder.

Lip Balms. That Taste Like Beer. Crazy.
BALM IN GILEAD

Lip Balms. That Taste Like Beer. Crazy.

Big news: scientists have infused lip balms with hops that make them taste like a double IPA. And by “scientists,” we mean some outdoorsy menswear designers. And by “infused,” we mean they steeped hops in olive oil. And by “big news,” we mean... hey, pretty interesting.

A Secret Sale on Summery Handsomeness
ENCYCLOPEDIA BROWN

A Secret Sale on Summery Handsomeness

So Orlebar Brown decided to have a sale. But they only told a select few. Which... yeah, kinda rude. But we’re telling you now. So get yourself some gingham shorts or polos for 30% off. Unless everyone else gets them first. Actually... might be something to this privacy thing.

Just a Really Great Herdsman’s Knife
SEEN AND HERD

Just a Really Great Herdsman’s Knife

They don’t make herdsman’s knives like they used to... is not what you’ll be saying today. Because Best Made commissioned the legendary bladesmiths at Laguiole 127 to make their original herdsman’s knife like back in 1829. Except with handles made of maple, ebony and briar root. Great stuff, that briar root.

Frank Sinatra Gave You a Zippo. Sorta.
COME SMOKE WITH ME

Frank Sinatra Gave You a Zippo. Sorta.

Milton Berle. He was famous for 1) basically being the first TV star ever and 2) his enormous... Hollywood memorabilia collection. But now it’s up for auction. Including a Zippo and cigarette case gifted from Frank Sinatra. We’re pretty sure Ol’ Blue Eyes really wanted you to have ’em anyway.

20% Off Some Mom-Worthy Leather
MOTHER LAND

20% Off Some Mom-Worthy Leather

Mother’s Day: you’re on it. We know. Because you waited until the last minute for Billykirk to give you 20% off their most mom-worthy totes, carryalls and shoulder pouches in your own mother’s honor. As they say, he who hesitates gets superb Mother’s Day gifts. Or something like that.
