501 Jeans in a Can

Levi’s line of 501 premium denim is no longer going to be sold off the rack with the other jeans.  Rather, it’ll be available in paint cans bearing the color of the denim itself.  No word yet on whether they need to be shaken for 10 minutes before applying them to your legs.  This packaging design was conceived in order to highlight the bold colors in the 501 Spring and ...

Super Smooth Wall Art/CD Player

The Muji wall-mounted CD player is ingenius in a few ways your current player isn’t.First, the minimal, flat-to-the-wall body of the player has speakers incorporated into it.  This saves a lot of space, which is nice, but it looks great, which is paramount.  Second, and coolest, is that to start the Muji player, you actually pull the string hanging down from the bottom of it.  ...

The e-Swiss Army Knife

The days are not gone when you need to whittle a willow into a marshmallow roasting stick. But the days are here when you need to save a digital picture of your lady roasting it to a flash drive.  I mean, pretty soon robots will do all of that for us.  But until then, the new Swiss Army knife – the Swiss Flash USB Knife – is a multi-tool for you.   The most basic ve ...

Non-Dorky Heart Monitor

The Brookstone Heart Rate Ring is what MadeMan has been waiting for.  It’s discreet, effective, cheap, and simple.  And it gives you your beats per minute without getting you beat up by the cool kids. This minuscule device doesn’t scrimp on functionality, either.  It is capable of monitoring heart rate, has an in-built stopwatch, a clock and features a min/max target heart rate with alert. ITS ...

Safari-Themed Shooters For Wild Nights

The boys here at MadeMan have been known to sip, shoot, or otherwise pour an ounce or two of distilled spirits down the hatch.  And, what better way to do it than with these alluringly-gaudy animal shot glasses?  These pewter-and-glass shot glasses are cast into the shapes of wild beasts at their bases recalling the excessively-hyphenated, pith-helmeted days of darkest colonial Africa.&n ...

A Truly Manly T-Shirt

What do you get when you take something good, put it on top of something good, and put something good in its hand?  In this case, you get a bunch of super hot broads riding a herd of snarling wolves through the forest while firing machine guns into the air. Man, I guess if you’ve got to die sometime, this isn’t a bad way to go.  Almost certainly in your final minutes you’d simultaneously fall i ...

Diesels Mind-Boggling Watch

Diesel’s Black Label watch is too cool to tell time easily.  It takes a man with a certain, global, 360-degree physical awareness to read any of the four time zones on this sophisticated if confusing timepiece. The watch faces are on either side of the watch – two on the hand side and two on the side toward your wrist.  Obviously, to be able to read them the watch needs to be ...

Girls Like ‘Em Big and Round

There was a time when a round bed was something of a joke.  It was a tacky relic that brought to mind cringe-worthy, grainy film of Studio 54.  Thankfully, those days are over. It’s possible that the name of this bed, Le Histoire, is intentionally ironic.  But whatever their intentions, it’s appropriate.  The bed simultaneously evokes the minimalist lines of a bygon ...

Raddest Wet Suits Ever

Designer bydiddy says he doesn't want "to challenge Mother Nature’s art direction but it’s high time for a change. “ The designer set out to take wet suits from strictly functional to not only stylish, but outspoken and highly symbolic.  He used a unique printing technique to create one suit alluding the rusted atmospheric dive suit that a Vernian explorer might don for ...

Introducing: The Douche Card

The Douche Card is an elegant tool for the refined, well-groomed, and hilarious modern gentleman who wishes to discreetly and comically let his social underlings know exactly where they stand with him.  The stark design alludes to the understated masculinity befitting a man of distinction, and the all-lowercase lettering evokes contemporary classic poet e.e. cummings.  Not ready to unshe ...

Review: Drink, Play, F@#K

A retort from the brassy kingdom of dick lit to Elizabeth Gilbert’s bestseller “Eat, Pray, Love,” “Drink, Play,  F@#k” is a novel that follows Bob Sullivan’s quest to attain nirvana via a very much un-Zen route.  Bob leaves behind a broken marriage to a woman he describes as “the single most self-obsessed person on planet earth. And I'm factoring ...

Sexy Chicks That Tweet

After being featured prominently on every media outlet from The Colbert Report to Fox News, the cultural phenomenon that is Twitter is most assuredly here to stay--for at least another six months, or until the keyboard cat phenomenon also fades into relative obscurity. The zeitgeist of brevity is sweeping the nation with a much longer media half-life than the Swine, H1N1 23 ABC flu, and we editors ...

Grilled Sandwiches From A Toaster

Toastabags take all the delicious, heady aromas of the baked sandwich, and put it in a sack lunch like your momma did for you in 3rd grade.  Adorable and delicious, much like veal.  Just make a sandwich like you normally would, slide it into Toastabag (toothpick it together if need be) and then slide it in your toaster.  A single Toastabag is comprised of a flexible, toaster-proof m ...

Stallone: The Baddest Badass Ever

Now, I’ve had my late-night fun with classic “What-the-Hell-am-I-doing-with-my-life-that-makes-me-watch-this” clips.  You know the ones.  The scene from Ralph Macchio’s Crossroads where the Karate Kid himself has to guitar-battle ‘80s legend and six-stringed douche Steve Vai for his soul.  Or how about the scene from Bulletproof where Gary Busey cal ...

The Viscous Hawk 3-Wheeler

The Hawk 3-wheeled concept car from Kiwi designer Alex Hodge (only 22 years old) isn’t going to be hitting the production line anytime soon.  Which is too bad because not only does it look great, it’d be fast and fuel efficient to boot. This vehicle has a fiberglass body and a pod-style cockpit.  This is powered by a 999cc V-twin engine capable of pushing it to 144 miles ...

Cigarette Lighter Sandwich Press

There are cell phone laws prohibiting you from talking and driving in a lot of states.  There are no laws on the books about driving and cooking scrumptious sandwiches.  You better get on this right away.  For our money, roast beef doesn’t taste right unless it’s roasted at speed through an opposite lock drift.  It’s, frankly, a little bland.  Finally, th ...

Revolutionary ‘Hybrid’ Camera

DSLR cameras (the gigantic ones) take phenomenal pictures, but they’re so impractical to take anywhere worth taking pictures (like a bullfight or a bar).  Well, not anymore.  Olympus has developed a concept camera using a Micro Four Thirds system.  The Four Thirds is in reference to their already-existing line of Four Thirds digital cameras.  However, in this line, they&r ...

This Netbook is a Game Changer

A company called Always Innovating has unveiled a netbook that completely changes the way we’ll look at these adorable little travel mates.  And it will either blow the competition to smoldering smithereens, or crash gloriously like a badly-controlled rocketpack. The most amazing thing about the Touchbook is that it’s got two parts – its screen is detachable.  This give ...
