Normally we’d turn to J. Crew for everything to wear to a beachfront clambake:  Faded khaki shorts, a crisp white polo and a distressed leather belt we’d hope to have undone by some 10 in a sundress at the end of the night.  The classic clothier wouldn’t normally be the place we’d turn to for kitchen tools however.  Something about J. Crew selling this Original Maine Lobster Kit just makes sense though.  It fits the whole motif.  Cracking some lobsters and a couple of beers during the summer while relaxing with some Blake Lively-eque ladies (don’t interrupt our fantasy) sounds like the perfect beach day to us.  Plus, buying the shell-cracker and pick set will help support a company dedicated to finding disabled people employment opportunities, so you can feel good about your awesome anyway purchase.

 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.
