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
Weekend Soup for the Soul.
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.
