Item of the Week: I Got Seoul

Street Banner Bags

If you want a different take on a gym bag or grocery sack this bag is for you.  This is not your typical nylon “I’m not a plastic bag” bag.  These are made from street banners in Seoul by a non profit group that is passionate about recycling.  No two bags are alike so it’s awesome to know that this little durable $19 gem that you are carrying is like NO OTHER.  Check out their site (which also has some other awesome stuff notebooks/cards/stationary), save the planet, and look good doing it.

“And show the world you love him”. Tammy sang it best, but we want you to show it. Send in 2-6 pictures of the man in your life to:

We want to feature the style and looks that make your man shine. If he’s not your man, this may be the best way to let him know that you’ve been looking. Take it away Tammy…

Celebrity Style: Giovanni Ribisi

Giovanni Ribisi. Ah man, it’s one of those nights  when old re-run’s of Friends are hitting the spot. I almost forgot about his part as Pheobe’s kid brother Frank. Excellent show. Well lets get back to fashion shall we. Take it away Ribisi.

Prim and Propr

No, we did not misspell proper.  Propr is the new clothing line launched by Ben Harper and David Arquette.  I know what you’re thinking… that is a seriously strange style mash up.  However, we were pleasantly surprised to find that these guys have put together a really great line of clothing for men.  It’s casual cool and makes us feel all warm and fuzzy to know that everything is made in the great U.S. of A.  Check out their site or click on over to their myspace page which has some awesome pics of a photo shoot.

Item of the Week: Go With The Grain

You may not picture yourself as a “woodsy” or “outdoorsy” type (we’re totally down with the guys who think doing something outdoors includes sitting on a patio somewhere drinking joe and catching up on emails) however that doesn’t mean you can’t pretend.  Let us introduce you to the Woodgrain Belt Buckle.  It’s just modern enough without being too whimsical which we totally dig.  So if this spring weather is stirring something in you to head to the great outdoors (but you live in a city like us that the great outdoors includes a ski or camping shop) then check out this site and their amazing belt buckle.
