Collective Retreats was built to the idea that traditional hotels are just places to sleep and there had to be something better. Their innovative approach of canvas tents, connected teepee bathrooms and local experiences is luxury camping at its finest. Here’s how that all works out. They find private land owners with uninterrupted remote space (read: gorgeous swathes of nature) that hotels would never be able to build on and create a sort of micro-resort with five to fifteen different furnished tents for guests. In the case of Collective Retreats, a tent is a more luxurious home away from home or expedition start point than it is “something you can pack in the back of your car” because these tents have wooden floors, stoves, French press coffee bars, enormous beds and Egyptian cotton linens. Each spot also has a connected teepee bathroom with shower, toilet and everything else you’d find in a five-star hotel. Each lodging is separated enough from all the others for a truly intimate experience, but there’s also a common area for chef-prepared dinners and mingling. Collective Retreats currently has two locations open (Vail and Yellowstone) seasonally with plans to open three more (Hudson Valley, Hill Country, Sonoma) in the future.

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.
