Things to do for July 05, 2013
Some Shorts, Some Shoes and a Gift from Amsterdam
Weekend the Beautiful.
Shave Gear. From Amsterdam.
Hey, you’ve got a little something on your face. Hot dogs, domestic beer and the satisfied look of independence, sure. But also: a beard that could use a slight summer trim. So here’s a couple shave creams and a handsome brush from an Amsterdam barber, all packed in a leather roll-up. Happy toting.
Something’s Delicious in Denmark
Le Bernardin. Noma. Per Se. These are some of the world’s best restaurants. They’re also pulled straight from Matt Orlando’s résumé. He’s the guy behind the soon-to-open Amass in Copenhagen, where he’s cooking things like lamb, whole lobster and roasted turbot. You’ve always loved Denmark in July.
Wear This Now
Because summer isn’t all barefoot days and pantless nights, the Portland Dry Goods guys went ahead and made you some shoes and belts. Real handsome stuff—loafers, vegetable-tanned belts, moccasins—all hand-stitched and rugged. Yes, these are your sh*t-kicking loafers.
Because You Need an Iron Bottle Opener
You’ve been opening a lot of bottles lately. So what you need: an opener that works as hard as you do. Like this heavy-duty conversation piece from a metal-casting workshop in Syracuse. It’s made from iron and seasoned with organic flaxseed oil. We hear that’s good for your bottle opener’s cholesterol.
30% Off Ovadia & Sons
It’s getting hot out there. You’ve probably noticed. So what you need: shade. Lots of shade. Also, some lightweight clothes. For the latter, here’s a sale from Ovadia & Sons. We’re talking linen shorts, seersucker pants, breathable jackets and other things that’ll come in handy when you’re patio-ing the heck out of a patio.
