Your Perks: 1) Dress socks. So many colorful dress socks, we stopped counting. 2) Handbags from a little label called Prada. Perhaps you know someone who might like one. 3) All the juices you need to close out summer in a strong, healthy, fruit-and-vegetable-forward way.
Things to do for August 20, 2015
Cold Brew, Kauai and James Bond’s Watch
Please, help yourself to more weekend.
Some Fine Brooklyn-Made Cold Brew
Somewhere in Brooklyn, a man is steeping strong, smooth cold brew overnight, then pouring it into a large glass bottle, and then he’s putting it into a shipping container along with three to 11 bottles just like it. That man is a hero.
Get ’Em While They’re... Leather
Right now, NY-based furniture and lighting designer Dino Sanchez is hand-making these nice-looking tan leather goods, like wallets and laptop sleeves. Next month, he will begin making something else entirely. And that’s how this One Off Goods thing is going to go.
Cottages, Waterfalls and Hiking in Kauai
Here’s a new lodge on Kauai’s South Shore. It’s where you’ll rent a charming cottage or villa, and
then do one or all of the following:
—Golf on a Tom Weiskopf–designed 18-hole course.
—Sail a traditional Hawaiian canoe.
—Shower in a volcanic rock garden.
Ball and Buck. Todd Snyder. Sales.
Buck: Colored shorts. Plaid shirts. Other things you’ll need for standing
around on a deck one day soon. It’s all up to 35% off.
Todd Snyder: That guy Todd called, again. He wants you to have up to 70% off chambray shirts, sweatshirts, polos and whatever else. Nice guy.
