Some part of the clothing purchasing experience always sucks. You buy online because it's convenient, cheaper and/or you're bored at work.

Best Made Co has a habit of redesigning things we never thought needed redesigning. Like the toolbox almost every guy reading this has sitting around somewhere in his house, apartment, garage or parent's basement. The bright red paintjob on the metal box might have faded or given way to rust over the years, but it's ... continue reading
If you thought you had collected all of the Pokemon of the bag world, you were wrong. You might have a messenger, rucksack, backpack, tote, duffel and a weekender, but do you have a postbag?

Bones. Cards. Tiles. Tickets. Stones. Spinners. Those are all names for the pieces in the classic "double 6" domino set. You can, obviously, also call them dominoes, but what fun is that? We never really got into dominoes, but we understand the appeal. If you're a fan of the game of strategy, you're no longer limited ... continue reading
Industrial gas pipe is the LEGO of our adult years. Unlike LEGO, you don't need thousands of pieces to make anything functional, gas pipe is a lot harder to step on and it looks a whole lot cooler.

Some products defy all logic and description, and yet they're just too fucking awesome not to talk about. This is a hanger made out of rebar. Yes.

Traveling with cables is a pain in the ass. They get buried in the bottom of your bag, separated from the wall adapter or tangled up in all the other stuff you decided to bring with. It's even worse when you consider the fact you need to travel with cables and bricks for your iPhone and iPad, along with your headphones. ... continue reading

But you would have figured that out whilst enjoying those cavity searches." Putting a sticker on your suitcase ... continue reading
