OBVIOUSLY Sly Stallone is living fat these days. He’s one of the most successful actors in the history of Hollywood, he basically has the purchasing power to buy any home he wants in the world. So it should come as no surprise that he has a $4.199M villa in the ultra exclusive La Quinta gated community in California.
Here are the deets, via the LA Times:
Set on nearly half an acre, the 2008 villa combines Spanish and Mediterranean elements. Details include interior wood shutters, wood ceilings and granite slab counters.
The close to 5,200 square feet of living space includes a great room, an entertainment center with a fireplace and wet bar, a formal dining room, a wine room, a breakfast nook, four bedrooms, four full bathrooms and a powder room. Two of the bedrooms are master suites with stone fireplaces, wet bars, walk-in closets and dual vanities.
Pocket doors open to connect indoor and outdoor living spaces.
The custom-designed swimming pool area has a spa that overlooks a rock creek and a green belt. The fire pit and barbecue center take in views of the surrounding mountains.
Given how many millions of monthly readers we have here on BroBible I’m guessing there’s at least a handful among you that can afford to buy this house, so for those of you reading this right now if/when you buy Stallone’s house will you PLEASE come back here and let us know you bought it, that way we can come out and party together?

Above is the new SVT-CV43 from TSOVET Watches, and unlike a lot of things in this post that I tos sin here because they are ‘things we want’ I actually own that watch, because it’s badass and it goes with every single article of clothing in my wardrobe. It’s somewhat pricy, $350, but in the world of watches it’s still extremely affordable, and you get everything you pay for this with this watch. Here are the details on this new time piece from TSOVET:
The new SVT-CV43 blends traditional aesthetics with modern design. The curved exterior case wall is inspired by classic pocket watches and has a contoured wire lug, which honors the TSOVET 1.0 collection. Modern elements include an eloquent curved profile view, an extended crown tube, and a recessed case back that sits flush with the 43mm case, making it optimal for various sized wrists.
If you’re interested in buying this one for yourself CLICK HERE to head on over to their website, but if you’re looking for another wristwatch option keep on scrolling because there’s another watch by TSOVET directly below!
Tsovet Men’s 38MM Watch with Leather Band
At $184 this offering from TSOVET is at a more approachable price point for many of you bros, but it still keeps that non-flashy, understated level of class that you should be looking for when buying a new timepiece. This is a watch you’re going to LOVE the feel of on your wrist, and I cannot say enough good things about it, becauase I’ve been wearing a TSOVET for a few weeks now and it’s glorious.
I would NEVER survive in the blogging game without ample amounts of coffee. I drink anywhere from 2 to 4 cups every single day, without that constant slow-drip of caffeine I’d waste away into blogging obscurity and you bros would never click my shit again.

The ET733 And ET735 DigitalMeat Thermometers (Wireless, Bluetooth)
With the NFL Playoffs starting tomorrow night and the Football National Championship on Monday night we’re still balls deep in the middle of tailgating season, and that means you bros should keep the latest and greatest grilling equipment on your radar. Today I want to introduce you bros to two wireless meat thermometers that are about to boost your grilling game into the next stratosphere, because with these you’ll NEVER over or undercook a piece of meat again…First up is the ET733 Wireless BBQ Meat Thermometer from Maverick:
Here’s what Maverick has to say about the ET733:
Grilling steak and chicken for your pre-game party? No problem! The ET-733 is a transmitter and receiver set that allows for you to monitor the temperature of two meats at once, from up to 300 feet away. There are 15 presets on the receiver that hook up to two metal food probes. Once your food has achieved the desired temperate you will receive an alert directly to the transmitter. Only grilling one meat during your tailgate party? The second probe can be used to monitor the temperate of the grill itself. Quit opening and closing the grill, enjoy your party and still know when the food is ready to eat. Price: $69.99
And now for the Maverick ET-735 Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Digital Cooking Thermometer, the Cadillac of bluetooth/wireless meat thermometers for your grill (still only costs $79.99):
Connect the BBQ thermometer via Bluetooth to your iPhone, iPad, Android or tablet to monitor the temperature of your food and grill from up to 160 feet away. The ET-735 allows you to connect up to four water-resistant probes, and will alert you via its accompanying Redi-Chek app once the desired temperature has been reached. The app includes 15 preset temperatures for all types of meat, or you can input a custom temperature. Price: $79.99
I’ve already used the latter, the ET-735 and I gotta say bros: this thing is LEGIT.
Are you a bro who likes to drink in style? Want to serve up some classy as fuck cocktails on the go but don’t know how to transport bottles, mixers, ingredients around town with you? Then this was BUILT FOR YOU. Here’s what you get in the set:
— Fully-insulated, rich premium leatherette construction

At first glance I gotta admit that I’m pretty impressed by the new Wilson C200 Irons, and this is coming from a guy who’s never played with Wilson golf clubs before. And I bet you’re also wondering why I’m hyping golf clubs in the middle of January…Well, it’s because I’ve recently moved from NYC (after being there 8 years) back on down to my native/ancestral land of Florida, where I can play golf 365 days a year now.
Here’s what Wilson has to say about these new clubs with the ‘power holes’ we’ve never seen before:
True innovation in the all-new C200 has changed the way irons will be judged. FLX Face has propelled distance technology to another stratosphere by utilizing Power Holes wrapped entirely around the face to increase the amount of time the ball gather energy before launching it down the fairway.
My interest is piqued, and as my irons are probably 10 years old at this point I’ll soon be in the market for a new set of clubs and will certainly be keeping these on my radar as more and more reviews on the C200s come in. If you’re looking for more info on them you can follow that link below to find a dealer near you that sells them!
First off I’d just like to say that these are pretty damn expensive ($435), but with that in mind so is (1) your lift ticket to go skiing/snowboarding, (2) your skiing equipment, and (3) the trip/transportation you paid for that got you to somewhere so remote that an avalanche is a very real possibility….So I’m guessing that you’ve probably got a little coin laying around for something like this AND you can never put a price tag on safety. There are only FOUR of these left in stock, so if you’re interested ACT NOW before they sell out! Here are the deets:
Ortovox Avalanche Rescue Kit Smart-Antenna Technology: Improves your own safety Signal separation with flagging function Most simple operation due to: Clear control elements, precise real-time display with directional arrows and circle display Rubberized housing for protection and ergonomics Lighted display for night searches Switchover in case of a follow-up avalanche Clear, optimized search acoustics Update possibility Power consumption optimization Partner check, self test 5 years Warranty Ergonomic T-handle, oval Telescopic shaft Sanded grip PFA quick assembly system Grip sleeve made of EVA foam Depth markers Dyneema draw line The SPECS Material 5052 aluminum (blade) 6061 aluminum T6 (shaft) The SPECS for Beast Dimension: 26 x 21 x 5 cm Weight: 710 g The SPECS for 240 Light PFA Diameter: 11 mm Length: 240 x 40 cm Weight: 270 g
Seriously, this just might save your life one day.
I don’t often suggest hair care products for you bros because I know it’s something that bros can take very strong opinions about, something that bros are extremely particular about. That said, I feel good enough about the Dirty Byrd Pomade to share it with you bros here today, because I think you’re going to find that it’s amazing.
One cool thing about Byrd is they work with pro surfer Chase Wilson and a bunch of other brand ambassadors known as ‘the Flock’, creating some sick content (sexy photoshoots) to go along with their badass products. The pomade comes in every style you’re looking for, and I can’t help but suggest the soap on a rope, because it’s such a throwback to yesterday:
It just wouldn’t be a ‘Things We Want This Week’ without me suggesting at least one badass pocket knife for you bros, would it? I picked this one up for myself over the holidays and I have to be honest with you: it’s one of the best knives I’ve owned. The balancing/weight of it is glorious, the blade is sharp/crisp as fuck, I cannot say enough good things about my new purchase. If you’re interested in joining me then you can pick up yours today by CLICKING THAT LINK BELOW RIGHT NOW!
