GIVEAWAY-Two-Pairs-of-Capital-Sunglasses-mm

Summer is winding down, but thanks in part to all this awesome global warming we’ve got going on, you can still hit the beach for a little while longer. If your day in the sun wardrobe includes a pair of knockoff shades you got at a mall kiosk, it’s time to upgrade. Capital is the kind of brand you should turn to in these times of need. The independent frame manufacturer carefully churns out pairs of well-made, stylish sunglasses. From handmade wooden frames to bioplastic shades made from plants, the California based company will deliver you some eye protectors you can rock proudly. Plus, right now, you’ve got a shot to do so for free.

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.
