Writing a book has been something we've been keeping mental notes about for as long as we can remember, but we've had difficulty narrowing down the list of topics. Do we write about cocktails? Wallets? Watches? Cars? Beer? That last one has always been near the top of the list, but then we found Craft Beer World. Mark ... continue reading
Normally, product copy is pretty boring stuff aimed at getting the facts out as fast as possible. It's about numbers, not feelings. The Sold iPhone App sells itself pretty well when it comes to describing its function--putting the burden of selling your "luxury" shit for some extra rent money. "I don't have time for ... continue reading

Basically, they cool your drink without watering it down so you get all the flavor you expect at a bit more pleasant temperature. With these Icon Whiskey Stones, you can add a bit more fun to your boozing experience. Available ... continue reading
The Social Network and 21 are two completely different movies, about two completely different things that both turned out, in our opinion, pretty good. Underneath the different plot mechanics (cards and social networks) and stars, though, you'll find a vaguely similar story about empire building. Turns out the reason ... continue reading
Opening the inbox to find the weekly Best Made Co. email newsletter is one of the highlights of our week. There's never a shortage of cool, innovative, downright stylish products that we want to own... even if we don't have any business having a huge axe or camp stool outside the woods. The new Light Waxed Cruiser ... continue reading
How many times have been watching a video on your laptop, iPad, iPhone, Android, smartphone, tablet, etc. while you were sitting on your couch? Unless you're nothing like us, there's probably a TV less than twenty feet away that it would look and sound much better on. Why don't you want it on the Apple TV you already ... continue reading
Mead is touted as "the ancestor of all fermented drinks," even though it's invention is "lost in prehistory." Prehistory! Before there was even history! The point is, mead is old as shit. It's been around forever because fermented honey and water actually tastes pretty damn good--even when it's not renaissance fair ... continue reading
Ralph Lauren has officially made the best looking backpack/rucksack we've seen in quite some time. The flap top closure has a drawstring closure in a contrasting color. The giant inside that the flap top closes is lined with a contrasting orange nylon twill. The rich, chocolaty leather straps and trim are imported, ... continue reading
Mike Breach is a barista phenomenon that makes portraits in the top of your latte. He makes us feel like every piece of art we've ever created is only fit for first-grade pinning to the fridge. Yeah, it's that cool.
The giant TSOVET timing gauges built like tanks are phenomenal. They're huge statement pieces that almost double as a trip to the gym for your off hand. That's great for most situations, but sometimes the only statement worth making is a more minimal one. The SVT-CN38 is the watch for just such an occasion. It's still ... continue reading
Right around the time many of you reading this--and the one writing it--graduated high school, Yeah Yeah Yeahs blew the fuck up with their hit single "Maps." It was all over MTV, and VH1 and Fuse and whatever ancient television networks existed back then before you could just watch music videos on YouTube. Even writing ... continue reading
What originally started as a teenager painting graffiti in Paris evolved into an artist with an unconfirmed identity claiming the world as his gallery. As important as it is to see the TED award winning artist's work in person, it's not exactly everywhere... yet. If you can't make it to one of the few installations ... continue reading
You don't have to be Richard Hammond to appreciate the iconic nature of the Porsche 911. You don't even need to be anywhere near his rich as him to drive one (Porsche dealers are surprisingly far more lenient than you think when it comes to letting you behind the wheel of one). For the 911's Golden Birthday, Porsche ... continue reading
Dropping a cool thou on a watch is not something to be taken lightly. But based on our thoughts--and those of our contemporaries--if you're going to do it you should definitely put the new Xetum Kendrick collection at the top of the consideration list. Based on a modern take of a vintage automotive dial, these watches ... continue reading
The carabiner has been around forever. At one point it was actually used for climbing, but that purpose has all but been forgotten ever since it was appropriated by men everywhere for use as the missing link between keys and belt loops. We still don't quite understand how having a wallet in your back pocket and sitting ... continue reading
Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie play bodybuilders. Tony Shalhoub plays a crazy mob boss. Ken Jeong does some hilarious shit. Michael Bay plays director. Everything else is too ridiculous to explain. Just click play.
