Cologne Based on Michael Jacksons DNA

This has got to be one of the must interesting, morbid, unique, and darkly enticing things we’ve seen online lately. And that’s saying something. My DNA Fragrance is a company that concocts perfumes and colognes based on the DNA of a particular human. Creepy? A little. But not as creepy as it seems at first blush. Your DNA isn’t responsible for your scent directly. That is, …

Black Diamond Fashion

When you realize teenagers are smoking you down the slopes, you have to fight back something they simply can't match, a pocketbook. No matter how slick that 17 year old appears inverted over your head, you can take comfort knowing you are warm, dry while rocking the latest technology and fashion. Of course, if you can still stomp on the little runts, looking good only makes it that much better. Ch …

The Ernest Hemingway Standup Desk

There is a small but devoted faction of writers, designers, and miscellaneous desk workers who live and die by the standup desk. It’s better for your back, it’s allegedly better for creativity, and it definitely burns more calories than slumping in an office chair for 8 hours a day. Famously, Ernest Hemingway always wrote standing up (wait, what?). Consider this quote as you consider your desk: …

Shirts My Way One-Click Tailoring

Ever take the drive to your local men’s fashion store looking for a new dress shirt to compliment a suit, some new jeans, or a similarly personal fashion item?

The Most Interesting Tie Shop Online

Don’t be ludicrous. These ties are not for business meetings with anybody over 35, they’re not for weddings (or are they?), and they certainly won’t impress your girlfriends dad. But if you’re working in a hip young office, or you’re going to a venue where you have to look sharp but don’t want to come off as either fuddy or duddy, Toybreaker has a tie for you. Any cravatier will tell you, with …

Verticle Hamper for Hip, Dirty Clothes

The Wardrom wall installation invites you to throw your dirty (or clean?) laundry (or whatever?) against the wall willy nilly to simultaneously embrace disorder while keeping things tidy. Your mother and your high school art teacher would be quite proud, indeed.
