gramophone-ipod-station

Are there two more depressing words in the English language than “Sold Out”?  Okay, maybe “It’s positive,” but still, when we find something we want, we hate seeing those red letters holding us back.  The Gramophone iPod Station, while no longer purchasable, is still pretty sweet.  Nothing typifies the balance of retro and modern we seek in our homes like this iPod Station from – the always too feminine sounding – Pottery Barn.  The brass turn-of-the-century gramophone usually associated with muffled voices and dampened horns can now spit out the muffled voices and dampened horns of some lo-fi bands you’re into.  The frame is made from maple veneers with a deep-espresso colored stain and the whole unit would fit nicely in any retro-minded home.

Gerber-Pocket-Square-Linerlock-1_1024x1024

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
