The The Traveler Suit by Black Lapel
I’ve got a full review on this coming out next week but I wanted to put in your radar ahead of time because it’s that good. The Traveler Suit from Black Lapel is the one suit every guy needs to own. It combines the tailored-fit qualities of a bespoke suit with performance qualities that make it ideal for busy days and traveling. It comes in both Navy and Grey, and you order it online by inputting a ton of measurements. When the suit arrives, it’s tailored to fit your exact specifications. You can also tweak things like the liner color or pattern, lapels, buttons, cut, fit, etc. If you find that you need some tailoring after the suit arrives then Black Lapel will hook you up!
“The specially woven wool fabric makes this suit more wrinkle-resistant, stain-resistant, and gives it a slight stretch quality all without compromising breathability to keep you looking, feeling, and smelling your best when you’re on the road. Unique features like a discretely hidden money pocket and a secure zipper-enclosed passport pocket will have you locked and loaded for any business trip.
Seriously, if you’re in the market for a new tailored suit then this is the only one you should be looking at right now.
The ‘Tulane’ Classic Blue Seersucker Short by Haspel
My dudes, you need to check this product out ASAP as well as all the shorts on Haspel’s website. For years I was a fan of J.Crew’s shorts but they’ve changed the fabric, length, cut and weight and I was left searching for a new favorite pair of shorts and I’ve found that in this classic tailored cut from Haspel. Here’s their description of the Tulane:
“Our Tulane seersucker shorts are the intersection of fashion and function. They look amazing while our famous pucker keeps humidity in check. Because the swamp belongs in Louisiana, not below the belt.”
We’ve still got months left of Summer and it’ll be shorts weather until February down here in Florida. There are 3 pairs of shorts on Hasple’s website that are on sale at the moment so you can save some coin by following that ‘shop now’ link below and picking up your new favorite bottoms today. Join me in wearing these comfortable and perfect fitting Southern-style shorts.
$17.5 Million Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta
At 417.5 million, the Pagani Zonda is officially the most expensive car in the world. The Pagani Zonda is no longer in production and the HP Barchetta is even rarer. This particular model is owned by Horacio Pagani and it features a mouth-watering 7.3-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine which pumps out an unbelievable 789bhp. For more on this outrageous car, you can follow the link below and head on over to Top Gear.
Maapilim Shaving Essentials Made With Natural Ingredients From The Mediterranean
Apparently, Maapilim shaving essentials for men have been featured in New York Times, GQ, and Forbes but I only just got the memo. I shaved yesterday for the first time using their Safety Razor, All Purpose Oil, and Shaving Cream. I’m not even lying one bit when I tell you I had someone comment on who my face looked like a ‘baby face’ yesterday because the shave was so clean. This stuff’s legit, and it left my skin feeling healthy.
I can’t speak for all of their grooming products but I’ll certainly be trying out some of their hair products and skin treatments because I was that impressed by their shaving essentials. Go check ’em out!
Basil Hayden’s Two by Two Rye
Basil Hayden’s ‘Two by Two Rye’ is a brilliant blend of two rye whiskeys and two bourbons. It’s a limited-edition release so if you see it at TotalWine you’ll want to snatch it up before someone else does. The two ryes (5-year-old Straight Rye and 7-year-old High Rye) and bourbons (6 and 13 years) are both made, aged, and blended in Kentucky. A bottle will cost you around $45 at the store which is a steal for what could be the best Summer release of 2018. It’s got a spicy and smooth viscosity that slips right over the mouth, absolutely delicious.
Southern Tide x BOTE Travel Paddle Board
Paddleboarding is one of the coolest ways to get close to nature. You get in a solid core workout while gliding noiselessly through the water. You can make it as physically challenging as you want or you can paddle along leisurely all day. The problem with paddleboards is they aren’t very easy to transport so you often times find yourself needing to rent one, and that’s where this awesome SouthernTide x BOTE collaboration comes into play. This is an inflatable paddle board built for travel, and made by BOTE which is world famous for making the finest personal watercraft and paddleboards around.
— Paddle Strap: an integrated channel on the side of the board with accompanying bungee straps that allow for quick and easy storage of your paddle when not in use. Located on the right side of the board.
— Grab Handle: The most comfortable grab handle that eliminated numb fingers and weak leverage while transporting your board. Located on the front, back and middle of the board.
— Bungee Straps: Adjustable bungee straps provide quick and easy storage of extra gear.
— BVA Deck Pad: The BVA multi-textured deck pad is heat sealed to shed water and provides plenty of cushion to reduce fatigue and anti-slip traction.
YETI Tocayo Backpack 26
YETI’s Fall 2018 product releases are out and the biggest attention grabber is the Tocayo Backpack. You can shop the colors and features by following the link below.
YETI Boomer 8 Dog Bowl
While most people are into the YETI Backpack I’m 100% here for this dog bowl. So what if it’ll cost $45 (I saw that somewhere on Twitter), nothing’s too expensive for my dog. I drink from my YETI Tumbler all day long and love it. My dog’s a Bernese Mountain Dog living in Florida who loves nothing more than ice cold water. We work hard so our dogs can have nice things, right?
BOOKS: The Beer Bible
Do you or someone you know love beer? Of course, you do. Then you need The Beer Bible. It’s the comprehensive book on all things beer that every serious beer lover needs.
PRESTO NOMAD Traveling 8 Quart Slow Cooker
I’ve never even considered being able to bring a slow cooker camping, or on a road trip. This is a game changer for me. I’ve got a several thousand mile road trip coming up soon and I try to avoid eating fast food when I’m out on the road.
Duke Cannon Cold Shower Cooling Field Towels
These body/face towelettes are quite possibly the greatest thing you can use when you get home from the gym (before showering)…or first thing in the morning/before bed at night. You instantly feel refreshed in a way I didn’t know was possible.
CRKT HVAS Field Strip Knife
The CRKT HVAS Field Strip Knife is built so you can easily disassemble the knife for cleaning without needing any expensive specialized tools. It’s a perfect field knife because it’s sharp as all heck, it stays sharp, and it’s affordable.
Otam 85 GTS Performance Yacht
I’ve been trying to feature more yachts in the ‘Things We Want’ lately and the Otam 85 GTS Performance Yacht is absolutely exquisite. This magnificent ship features 2,600hp MTU engines which can push the boat to a top speed of 45 knots and a cruising speed of around 38 knots. It has a bar, galley, rear swim platform, every modern electronics device imaginable, and then some. You can follow the link below to Otam’s website to learn more!
World’s First 100% Waterproof Knit Sneakers
Let’s be honest, there are very few instances in life where wearing 100% waterproof boots are perfect. If they’re insulated, they’re great in the Winter. There are a few instances in the Fall or Spring where rain boots work well, but for the most part, a functional 100% waterproof sneaker is a million times better. That’s where the stylish Vessi Footwear sneakers come into play.
These are the world’s first 100% waterproof knit sneakers and they come in multiple styles. They’re ideal for hiking, running, wearing to work or school, or anything else underneath the sun. The Flash Knit technology designed by Vessi Footwear is ingeniously built to keep the water out while allowing airflow so you’re still able to stay super active in these shoes without sweating an unbelievable amount (like you would in boots).
Uuni 3 Wood-Fire Pizza Oven
I’ve been reading about the Uuni 3 Wood-Fire Pizza Oven for the past year but last weekend I got one for my birthday and I’m here to tell you bros that it’s a game-changer. Living in NYC for nearly a decade turned me into a bit of a pizza snob, especially when it comes to the crap that passes as pizza down here in Florida. With the Uuni 3, I was able to whip up legitimate Neapolitan style pizzas in 90 seconds.
I first came across the Uuni Wood-Fire Pizza Oven on Instagram a while back in the form of Instagram Ads and I clicked through to see what it’s all about, that’s when I got hooked. Last weekend, I did a trial run on Saturday and made one pizza and then on Sunday I cooked 9 pizzas for my extended family. It only takes 90 seconds to fully cook each pizza by using wood-fire pellets. You can buy these pellets (for cheap) online or at Home Depot, they’re the same pellets you use in a pellet smoker so I already had them on hand. It takes under two minutes between pizzas to get the oven back up to temperature and holy crap does it get hot…Over 900-degrees Fahrenheit.
