The Mr. Porter Paperback

The Mr. Porter Paperback: The Manual for a Stylish Life is as close to a style bible as we'll probably ever get. Actually, let's backtrack a few steps. There are also a few other "style bibles" out there and this is just Mr. Porter's take on it. Labels are irrelevant though because this is pretty damn good. The first ... continue reading

Banksy: The Man Behind the Wall

In case you guys weren't paying attention, it was recently announced that, in addition to being editors for Cool Material, we're Banksy. Probably should have thrown a "spoiler alert" in there, so sorry if we just ruined it for you. All kidding aside, Banksy is an international icon, a cultural phenomenon and the guy ... continue reading

101 Essential Rock Records

101 Essential Rock Records is, as you might have expected, a book about 101 rock records that are, well, essential. It's all about the golden age of vinyl from The Beatles "Please Please Me" to the Sex Pistols' "Never Mind the Bollocks." It's an impressive collection regardless, but what we find most interesting is ... continue reading

Terrywood

We've got two big thumbs up for Terrywood. The latest book from photographer/dude-every-guy-wants-to-be, is a compilation of all his work that was on display in his Terrywood show from earlier this year. While it might not be as heavy on the scantily clad models as you would hope, the collection offers a unique, behind-the-scenes ... continue reading

Razrs: Lost Pictures Found On Old Razr Phones

Buying 44 old Motorola Razr phones on Ebay sounds like a terrible investment. Even if they only cost a couple of bucks, that's like another beer or a burger or something. Luckily, Kyle Williams had the forethought to make that purchase and then collect some ancient texts, sexts, pics and vids for your viewing pleasure. ... continue reading

If you want guests to think you have some sort of magical powers, pick up the Invisible Bookend. Will they be curious as to why your magical powers are limited to suspending falling books in motions?

Field Notes Archival Wooden Box

We go through notebooks at an alarming rate. We keep one on us at all times, and after a couple of weeks that sucker is filled with notes, lists and jottings about things we want to buy. The thing is, we like to keep them and look back on what we were up to on such-and-such a date. To keep all our past pocket notebooks ... continue reading

Biographical Dictionary of Popular Music

Getting musical input from someone you don't know is a bit like asking the Internet what you should eat for dinner. You'll get an answer, sure, but there's no telling how it will fit in with your personal taste. Unless, of course, the person you're getting said music information from happens to be Dylan Jones, the ... continue reading
