We’ve long loved Audi vehicles for their blend of performance and sophisticated good looks. One of the many people responsible for those gorgeous beasts is Jason Battersby, an exterior automotive designer for the brand. When not helping craft the next Audi, Battersby moonlights as a designer for the Galactic Empire. Yup, Battersby designed ships for Sith Lords—or at least he designed one ship for one Sith Lord. Battersby’s TIE-X is his imagining of a better TIE Fighter for Darth Vader. The designer tried to make a ship that fights into the Star Wars universe while also creating something new. With a glowing red cockpit, a pair of blasters, and a menacing look, we think he succeeded.

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
