In the world of iPhones, day jobs and happy hours, the only jungle you’re likely to spend significant time in is of the concrete variety. Whether it’s some urban exploration or checking out the cool new restaurant that just popped up on Yelp or in one of the fifteen Thrillist/Urban Daddy/etc. emails you subscribe to, you need to be ready for whatever shenanigans the day and night might hold. And you need to look good in the process. Slip into some classical pieces – or their modern iterations – from Levi’s, J. Crew, Dockers and UGG and you’re ready for everything from a quick jaunt to the office to drinks with clients. Who knows, maybe you even stop in front of one of those big, shiny window panes and take a picture of your sweet new threads for the Internet. Everyone else is doing it, why shouldn’t you?

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
