Obey Au Portant Sweatshirt

Obey Au Portant Sweatshirt

A damn fine sweatshirt. That's what this is. A pull-over fleece with a hood and draw cords, a pouch pocket and a very naval blue and white thin-stripe...

Paintings by Dane Lovett

Paintings by Dane Lovett

Dane Lovett's still-life's are unlike any we've come across before. They're executed in a way that makes them remarkably realistic, and they all incorporate a musical motif. Whether it's a vase of a plant sitting on an old New Order CD or an intriguing stack of old VHS tapes,...

Mott & Bow Introduces Black 4-Way Stretch Denim

Gone are summer days full of light denim and flip-flops. It’s time to embrace the dark side. If you’re hunting for a pair of black jeans, here’s why The Morton from Mott & Bow should be on the top of your list. First, they’re made with Stay Black technology, which means they are fade resistant. Second, they’re crafted with high performance 4-way stretch denim.

That means more comfortable jeans, great for bike rides and daily activities. Pick up a pair and use code Coolmaterial10 for 10% off.

Concrete Wall Wallpaper

Concrete Wall Wallpaper

Unfinished concrete walls, for some reason, have a pleasing aesthetic. We're not sure why: industrial simplicity? Rugged beauty? Did we really just write "rugged beauty"? Truth remains that it's attractive. And the truth also remains that it doesn't exactly occur frequently in mo...

Das ApfelBrett Macbook Cutting Board

Das ApfelBrett Macbook Cutting Board

So we made a mistake. We originally posted this as a Macbook case, which it most definitely isn't. The editor who did this was carried off from his desk by two large men in suits, taken out behind the barn, and sho... verbally reprimanded. Anyway, Das ApfelBrett is a pretty w...

Atari Wall Decals

Atari Wall Decals

Pong, Asteroids, Centipede. These are words that should conjure up nostalgic memories of the days when the grandaddies of Xboxes--8 bit arcade games--sucked up our attention as well as our quarters. And while kids these days may not understand how awesome it was to simply shoot ...

80's Boombox Portable Digital Music Player

Not much good came out of the eighties. Any positive cultural additions (the films of John Hughes, The Ferrari Testarossa, Cindy Crawford) were mitigated by an overwhelming number of bad additions (leg warmers, synth pop, any and all hairstyles). Boomboxes were an exemplary posit...

iPod Nano Watch Band

iPod Nano Watch Band

Within moments of Apple introducing the iPod Nano, two things happened. One, the entire population of Apple fanboys--pale, bespectacled young guys with a well-established Pavlovian erection response to Steve Jobs' black turtleneck--let out a collective orgasmic sigh. And two, acc...

Movie Mash-Up: The Matrix Dudeplay

Movie Mash-Up: The Matrix Dude

The way we see it, the two movies that guys can watch over and over again and never tire of are The Big Lebowski and The Matrix (the first, mind you, we still fail to recognize any sequels, the way people with terminal illness decide to not believe they're sick in hopes it will j...

Seiko Men's SNDA65 Chronograph Strap Watch

Seiko Men's SNDA65 Chronograph Strap Watch

Watches, like everything in fashion, can go terribly wrong. We need only reference the watches of rappers and compensating celebrities, adorned with enough diamonds to have tangible impacts on Antwerp economy. In the end, all watches do one thing and one thing only: tell time. Se...

Sons of Britches Raw Denim Jeans

Sons of Britches Raw Denim Jeans

Besides the pun in the name, there's a lot to like about these jeans. They're made from high quality California raw denim and engineered to withstand the rigors of a stunt man's regimen of bodily harm and personal jeopardy. Now we're not stunt men by any means. In fact, we're a...

There are cases for your iPad, and then there are Cases for your iPad. This is one of the latter. Handmade out of US-grown hardwood or bamboo and reinforced with steel, these cases are attractive enough to hang on the wall. It's the kind of thing where you get it in the mail and ...

Trespass: A History of Uncommissioned Urban Art

Trespass: A History of Uncommissioned Urban Art

We have a deep appreciation for uncommissioned urban art, which is an impressive way of saying "graffiti". This appreciation may have started with using Mr. Sketch scented markers to doodle on the insides of our 3rd grade textbooks, or maybe it was the standard dicks-on-bathroom-...
