Things to do for May 30, 2013
Muhammad Ali’s Robe, Handsome Watches and Other Weekend Essentials
E pluribus weekend.
For Whenever You’re Not Skinny Dipping
Pools have so many rules. Like no running. And no building poolside deck chair forts. But here’s a good rule: no wearing anything that isn’t a thigh-flattering masterpiece of swimsuitery. And since Faherty Brand’s giving you 25% off right now, that shouldn’t be too hard.
Watches Just Shouldn’t Look This Good
You know Miansai. They bent the laws of male jewelry physics to make... legitimately wearable male jewelry. So imagine what they’d do with watches. Or stop imagining and head to their site, because they just unveiled 58 nautically inspired horological beauties. Yeah, we figure you were imagining that.
This Robe Is the Greatest
Picture it: one week from now, you could wake up, slip into Muhammad Ali’s robe from his final fight (in 1981) and eat a waffle. Or you could walk around town wearing Whitey Ford’s warm-up jacket. You’ll just need to be the highest bidder at this auction. And very careful you don’t spill the syrup.
A French Knife. Made in Texas. Huh.
Stubborn champagne corks. Mysterious letters. Baby carrots. All good reasons why you’d need a walnut-handled, coral-and-green-painted replica of a famous 19th-century French peasant’s knife. Though we’d also accept “Because it exists now.”
Todd Snyder Has a Sale for You
Todd Snyder has some words for your wardrobe. And those words are “Take all of this lightweight, spring-y handsomeness that I made. Take it for 40% less than you normally would have.” Translation: they’re having a sale. Starts Saturday. It’s a good one. Mark it down.
