Your Perks: 1) Waxed-canvas bags that can handle whatever you throw at them this winter. 2) A truly special bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue. It’s whiskey to be celebrated. Or sipped judiciously. 3) A fitted button-down from Jared Lang. You’ve never looked better.

The Ramones, Abe Lincoln and a Fancy Poker Set
A watched weekend never boils.
Marky Ramone Penned a Tell-All
Here’s a new memoir written by the Ramones’ drummer Marky Ramone. It’s got a bunch of photos and insider tales told from his perspective as a band member. It’s called My Life as a Ramone, so that simply makes a ton of sense.
Bunch of Lincoln Stuff’s Up for Auction
—Written letters penned by Abraham Lincoln.
—A set of Edwards Family side chairs presumed to be sat on by him.
—A scrap of cloth with his blood on it from the assassination.
These are but a few of the Lincoln-related wares up for auction right now. And you thought we forgot the Lincoln auction part.
Ghurka Made Something Special for You
You know Ghurka. Leather people. They make nice leather things. And now they’ve made you a poker set out of solid wood, French leather and brass accents. It’s all fancy. And it helps if you like poker, but that’s really more of a formality at this point.
