license-plate-belt-buckles

There is something inherently cool about a license plate. It doesn’t matter if it’s from a Porsche, a 1967 Mustang GT or a Beetle – it’s still cool. Ok, we lied; the first two are definitely cooler, but they’re all cool on some level. Whether they’re hanging them in the garage, decorating the man cave or spicing up the dorm room, they look good on display. Time to apply some of that logic to your person with Vintage In Retrospect. This Etsy seller reclaims, repurposes and reinvigorates old license plates by turning them into belt buckles and key chains. There are plates from Michigan, Texas, Illinois and a bunch of other states made to look like cameras, 8 balls (the billiards variety), Texas itself, and anything else you can think of. With customizing options out the butt, you’re only limited by your imagination.

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.
