Your Perks: 1) Button-ups in so many summer colors and styles, it’ll make your head spin. In a good way. 2) Ultra-insulated flasks, koozies, wedge-shaped ice molds... Basically a bunch of things to keep your beverages chilled. Very important. 3) A contraption that turns alcohol into gas. Seeing is believing.
Things to do for June 11, 2015
Pirelli Calendars, Hangman and Tony Curtis
<em>Weekend Soup for the Soul</em>.
Playing Hangman via Text Message
Here’s an app that gives you the option to turn your phone’s keyboard into a hangman board on any messaging platform. Yeah, like texting. Challenge someone to a game and send the board back and forth, entering letters as they fit, and it’ll update itself as it goes. You’re welcome/sorry.
Vintage Stuff of the Motorcycle Variety
—Various ’70s open-faced helmets (Sunburst, striped, Captain America...).
—A navy-and-cream Harley-Davidson racing jersey.
—A leather riding belt.
—Select British motorcycle magazines.
—Other items from Imogene + Willie’s new vintage collection.
We’ll let you guess the theme.
Many, Many Pirelli Models in Here
Old calendars: usually just old calendars. Except when they’re old Pirelli calendars. Right. Taschen’s put together an intensive retrospective of the past 50-something years of their blessed photographs. Behind-the-scenes stuff. Risqué stuff. Other stuff. In summary: Pirelli calendar book.
In Case You Missed It...
On Kempt: Well, Entourage is over. Kempt is not going to not talk about that.
And now: bear witness to a few on-deck style icons.
On Driven: Wishing the happiest of belated birthdays to Tony Curtis. Additionally, here’s a beautiful piece of history. Vintage-Maserati-prototype history.
Being Half Off Is a Good Thing to Be
Clothiers: Bermuda shorts and linen shorts and other attractive
spring-to-summer stuff at up to 50% off. Must be some sort of sale.
Gant: Guess Gant also got the memo: button-downs, cotton cable sweaters and oxford blazers at (yep) up to 50% off. Good memo.
