  • Review: ScottEVest XAE Leather Jacket

    So you’re a handsome devil. We all know it. But what do you need to frame your steel-cut jaw and straight-edge browline? A leather jacket, that’s what.

  • Wearing your unread email count on your chest

    If you’re like me, you get a little.. obsessive about checking your email. Wouldn’t want to miss that important message after all.

    Assuming this is durable, this is just the type of emergency shelter I could see using myself.
