Unless you’ve been living in a cave with your eyes shut and your fingers in your ears, you’re familiar with Steve McQueen’s “The Great Escape”. If you’re familiar with “The Great Escape”, you’re familiar with Steve’s transport du jour, the motorcycle. Ergo, you’re familiar with this motorcycle. Modeled after the motorcycle Steve rode in that seminal piece of cinema, Blitz Motorcycles have meticulously recreated a piece of automotive history. They use the same 600cc engine size as the classic 1963 BMW Serie 2 cycle and those same iconic knobbled tires (sort of the grandaddy of the dirt bike), allowing you to pretend you’re as awesome as Steve was.

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.
