This is a reversible sweater jacket inspired by the great American sport of baseball. Maybe you play baseball. Maybe you watch it. Maybe you just like the way the jacket looks so you’ll put it on and increase your handsomeness rating by a factor of 5x. That’s how this works.
Things to do for August 24, 2016
Random Pirate-Themed Beer Shop Ahead
500 Beers, Porchetta Benedict and Your New ShoesBy Hadley Tomicki
Weekend morale is at an all-time high.
Kaiseki and Bento Boxes and You Going “Mmm”
Asuka. Consider that Japanese for the new place in Westwood where you’ll bring people for kaiseki meals, elevated bento boxes and à la carte dishes of Wagyu ribeye and sashimi. Unless you speak Japanese. Then it probably means something else.
Fouquet Meets Esquivel. Shoes Occur.
Hatmaker Nick Fouquet and shoemaker George Esquivel could easily just stand around all day looking stylish. But instead, they’ve collaborated on a new line of oxfords and ankle boots that you’ll soon be able to acquire at Fouquet’s Venice store. Which was probably a better use of their time.
Sunset Gets Its Own Serafina
New York’s got a new one for you on Sunset: a notorious, upscale Italian hangout known as Serafina. There will be wine, pizza, calamari, penne and other words that are fun to say while using your hands a little too much.
Your Brunching Future Looks Bright
Some places are slower to embrace brunch than others. Like Odys + Penelope, which will finally serve porchetta benedict, bacon “McMuffins,” oak-roasted beef sandwiches and rye cocktails this weekend. It’s important to let everyone come to morning foods and drinks on their own terms.
