Things to do for July 11, 2013
Superyachts, Scotch Toothpicks and a Unionmade Sale
The weekend is pretending like this never happened.
Toothpicks Soaked in Scotch
If you haven’t read the latest issue of Toothpick Aficionado: some Scotsmen saturated a bunch of tooth timbers in a vat of Islay single malt scotch to create... the single malt toothpick. What that means for your mouth: good, clean, peaty things. What that means for your scotch: probably nothing.
As Good as Pocket Squares Get
Centuries ago, man invented pockets. And far more recently, some aspiring haberdashers invented these new Japanese-raw-cotton pocket squares. Pin-dotted ones. Indigo tie-dye ones. Ones with vintage circus cartoons on them. That’ll give your blazer pockets a renewed sense of purpose. Or at least some company.
The Most Iconic Yacht Ever Is for Sale
Aristotle Onassis bought a few things in his life. Skyscrapers. Airlines. A 325-foot-long superyacht full of spiral staircases, swimming pools and 24-person dining halls—which now happens to be for sale. Meaning it could be yours. Could being the operative word.
A Therapeutic Thunderstorm... App
This should help you relax: there’s a new iPhone app that simulates the soothing sounds and light flashes of a thunderstorm in three-dimensional stereo. Download it. Give it a whirl. Unless you’re a dog.
Probably the Best Sale of Your Summer
Unionmade is doing this thing where they give you 40% off just about everything in the store (Gitman shirts, Billykirk bags, J. Press blazers, Filson jackets). And you’re doing this thing where you make a fist and pump it victoriously into the air.
