Just because you don’t want to dress up and go to the Renaissance Fair for Steampunk Days doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate a little brass, leather, and the bustier-ed Victorian era hotties that go along with the genre. Japanese artist Haruo Suekichi decided to blur the lines between form and function and started making steampunk watches. They aren’t exactly practical, but neither are bustiers and we still love those. Crunch Gear sat down with Suekichi in his Tokyo studio to figure out what makes him tick.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
