When the world lost Hugh Hefner last year, it lost a true original, a man who advocated for something he believed in despite serious headwinds. Buying a stack of Playboys to remember Hef may be frowned upon by your family, so consider hitting this live and online auction for a memento if you were one of the millions of boys who thought getting their hands on a Playboy was akin to finding a pot of gold. The Hugh M. Hefner Collection includes various items the magazine’s creator owned and kept around the Playboy mansion. A jukebox from his game house. A custom Monopoly board. A first edition of The Great Gatsby. There are tons of items plucked from the structures around the grotto. And, yes, there’s a bespoke smoking jacket and pipe, as few things are more quintessentially Hef. The auction takes place at the end of Novemeber, and you can get details on Julien’s site.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
