The wood-grain emboss on this Italian leather wallet is from real wood. They could’ve used cheap, faux woodgrain, but no. Hlaska founder, NorCal-based designer, Anthony Mazzei, would not stand for faux. He demanded real wood grain patterns and matched them to all three colors: ebony, cedar & pine.

Automotive heritage & American style come screaming over the finish line in this unique timepiece from L.A.’s March LA.B watchmakers. This collab pays respect to muscle car designer, Carroll Shelby’s, greatest prototype, the Shelby EXP 500 aka the Green Hornet. In a black metal chassis featuring a wood grain dial matching the car’s dash and the classic Cobra logo, this limited edition watch is sure to go fast.
Take the concept of the Swiss Army knife: a multitude of tools all packed into one handy, compact unit. Same principle here. Instead of tweezers, the Swiss RoomBox is a like a hotel room that fits in the trunk of your car. Depending on how you flip and unfold it, you’ve got a kitchen, bed, shower or dinner table all in one ridiculously small, modular package.
Drop the camera once and it’s done. The lightweight plastic and aluminum body is no match for pavement impact. But instead of getting hosed on the ridiculously over-priced extended warranty, look into Camera Armor. The protective skin works just like the case you have on your phone: absorbs shock, while giving you access to all the buttons, ports and controls you need.
Car dudes, don’t worry. This is not the actual nose of a Shelby Cobra 427. The two-man design team at Poland’s LA Design Studio know better. The body panels they use for their 427 Collection of custom, Cobra-inspired furnishings are actually reproductions made to exact specs from raw aluminum. Complete with factory-correct headlights, chrome accents and hardware, they’re built to inspire, not infuriate. We repeat, no Cobras are harmed in the making of this furniture.
Done properly, there is nothing green, leafy or particularly healthy about a Sloppy Joe. It’s all about meat and bread – and of course, the spicy sauce that glues it all together. When you’re looking down at a plate of Sloppy Joes, you know you’re filling up. But if you’re making them for your date, maybe a little side salad is a good idea.
Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman plays a great creep. As Truman Capote, he won an Oscar. In 2009’s Doubt, he was nominated for another. He’s up to his patented smarmy style in this 80s-era story of compulsive (and dangerous) gambling. During the day, he’s a putz assistant bank manager – after hours, he’s a hardcore gambling addict. When his habit gets too big to fund, he turns to the closest source of capital: the bank. Embezzlement begins and so does Mahowny’s undoing. It’s a sick and tragicomic look into the seedy world of gambling. Are you in?
