Sting’s current world tour featuring the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra is like nothing you’ve ever heard. And you’d be lucky to find a ticket at this point. Therefore, this tour-accompanying release titled Symphonicities is worth a listen for true Sting fans. The RPO takes classic Sting tracks and reinvents them with the power and beauty of an orchestra - about 100 classical musicians, who turn them into colossal pieces of music much easier to hum along to than Stravinsky or Dvořák.
Like flip-flops, shorts are only allowed so far from the beach – maximum distance about 1-mile. Any further, you’re committing a fashion foul. So to beat the summer heat without penalty, Outlier’s Ultralight Summer Pants will take you the rest of the way. The thin nylon-blend weave is cool, the cut is casual. They’ll take you beyond the harbor, downtown to dinner and right out to the nightclub, where someone in shorts would (and should), be turned away at the door.
If you’re fed up with the modern world & want to trek off into the wilderness to hug trees forever, you’ll want a Monowalker.

Made of aluminum & stem-bent ash, the Monowalker’s clever geometry allows you to haul a 100-pound load and stop on a dime with disk brakes. Designed by Kai Fuchs for climbers, hikers and adventurers of all sorts – it easily converts to a bike trailer and/or backpack.
