We’ve said it before: there’s a soft spot in our hearts for a cool product that ingeniously repurposes a mundane object to serve a new function. We’re not talking about MacGuyvering an AM Radio out of a paper clip, a Q-tip, and 9 volt battery either. Take these old classic hand-cast iron C-clamps from Crate and Barrel. Designed to be bookends, they work perfectly on virtually any shelf, and hold fast a set of books or any other object that needs to stand upright. They lend a bit of masculine style to any place, and while you’re baby-soft hands may have never hewed a piece of wood in their lives, you can at least familiarize yourself with the hardware.

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.
