If you’re an avid Cool Material reader, you’re familiar with The Race of Gentlemen, an event held every year in Wildwood, New Jersey, in which guys and gals don old-timey outfits and race vintage bikes and cars up and down the beach. It’s a sight to behold. If you’ve never been lucky enough to stand on that beach and smell the grease and oil, this is the next best thing. “The Normal People” is a short documentary by Daniel Soares about the men and women who gather on the sand that day in all their 1930s glory. Check it out and make sure you get to the Jersey shore next year.

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.
