Handsome Flasks and Steve Martin. It's the Weekend.

What’s Big in Beach Towels...
DRY HARD

What’s Big in Beach Towels...

According to a recent fake survey, the most important beachside accessories are 1) cold beer, 2) sunscreen and 3) a mind-blowingly soft and absorbent towel made of 100% linen from Outlier. Here’s how you get #3.

A Perfect Flask for Dad. Or You.
FLASK JEEVES

A Perfect Flask for Dad. Or You.

There’s a copper-smithing operation in Indiana called Jacob Bromwell. There’s a leather-crafting workshop in Denver called Winter Session. And there’s a reason we’re telling you this. Because they’ve joined forces to make one unreasonably perfect, pure-copper hip flask swaddled in leather. And because you enjoy drinking, presumably.

Opening Ceremony. Big Sale. Very Big.
OPEN FOR BUSINESS

Opening Ceremony. Big Sale. Very Big.

Those guys at Opening Ceremony. Always ahead of the style curve. And apparently, what’s in style next is giving you up to 50% off the likes of Gitman Bros., Band of Outsiders, Pendleton, Alexander Wang and other pillars of textile enhancement that rarely go on sale. This is what’s known as a “good idea.”

Buying Steve Martin’s Villa
MY FAVORITE MARTIN

Buying Steve Martin’s Villa

Steve Martin. Damn good actor. Especially in everything but Sgt. Bilko. Damn good taste, too—take his cliffside villa in St. Barts, for instance. No, really—take it. Oceanfront infinity pool, Balinese-style gazebo and all. Because it’s now for sale. Presumably to finance The Pink Panther 3. Genius.
