Sometimes the names of things don’t really describe them at all – take sweetbreads for example.  Then there are times when the name of a product is almost perfectly descriptive – The Shake Weight, Home Goods and Painters Tape come to mind.  Gridbooks would fall in the latter category.  While the Gridbooks Ad Book is simply a book of grids, it is much better than it sounds on paper (unlike sweetbreads).  Perfect for web designers, the Ad Book’s 15-point dot grid breaks down into four, five or six columns.  While you’re designing away you can keep track of your action items and other important notes on the lined sheets opposite the grids.  The Ad Book even comes with storyboard outlines for three standard ad units.  We could picture Don Draper roaming the halls of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce with one tucked under his non-whiskey holding arm even if he did lack a PC.

For those who find attention-grabbing brogues and ornate details a bit too flashy but who still want a pair of attractive, well-made dress shoes, The Martin Wholecut is the answer. Handmade in Italy out of a single piece of Italian calfskin leather, the rich, supple dress shoes feel exceedingly comfortable and look sleek without being over the top. Each is outfitted with a leather lining, a matching leather sole, and is even painted by hand. Plus, thanks to the Blake construction, The Martin Wholecut Oxfords feel light and flexible.
