Where They Keep All the Handsome Ski Stuff

Looking better than everyone else on the slopes isn’t your end goal. It’s more of a by-product of knowing where to find the best Sherpa jackets and old-school ski goggles and stuff. Which... hey.

Making Fire with a Vietnam War Relic

A really nice Vietnam-era lighter. That’s what this is. It’s got a patina that lets everyone know what it’s been through, a patriotic etching of an eagle and a reference to the battle of Ban Me Thuot. So, basically, Full Metal Jacket: the lighter.
