Vans-H-L-Era-59-th

We know guys who are shoe junkies. They’ll gladly drop hundreds on a pair of Air Yeezy’s or Jordan’s and never wear them. We’re not like that. We prefer having a few pairs that look sweet and won’t leave us with an empty bank account. These H&L Era 59’s from Vans fit both of our criteria. The plaid collar lining is a nice way to make a pair of normally understated kicks stand out, and we dig the leather detailing on the canvas uppers for a bit of a contrast. Plus, at $55, they’ll leave our wallet plump enough to go buy pants to wear them with. You gotta have pants.

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.
