Something about this Classic Boat Kit from The Balmain Boat Company reminds us of Hemingway, which in turn reminds us of drinks, travel and ultimate relaxation.  In other words, it reminds us of heaven.  Regardless of your construction skill level – whether you have trouble navigating a bansaw or, not only can you build a boat, but you can build it inside a giant Coke bottle – this kit makes the process simple and enjoyable.  Everything you need, all the plans; pre-cut plywood; even the disposable gloves, are included.  Have a cold one in hand and start crafting your own and start dreaming of relaxing at sea.  You’ll just need to pick up some undercoating, paint and varnish and, oh yeah, oars (should probably be aware of that one before you take off on a boat ride to Pamplona).


Tired of the limited options in the brick-and-mortar world and the traditional retail experience, the guys from Paul Evans set out to make their own luxury Italian shoes. Made from the finest Italian calfskin leather that’s been Blake stitched for exceptional comfort, sleek design and the ability to resole, these dress shoes are heritage brand quality available to you at a fraction of the cost. Lace up something better with Paul Evans.
