Few presidents looked as cool under pressure as John F. Kennedy. Cold War? Pssh. You wouldn’t know it when the 35th President of the United States was rocking some shades, chinos, and a nautical top. The man could wear an outfit. Now’s your chance to own an actual piece owned by the late President. One of JFK’s leather G-1 bomber jackets is up for auction. Complete with a Presidential seal sewn over the left breast, the classic bomber was Kennedy’s jacket of choice when out on the water. This particular one was recovered from the President’s yacht, the Honey Fitz, after Kennedy’s assassination. It was custom fit for JFK and is close to a size 44, though we imagine you won’t wear the jacket but rather put it safely on display should you win it.

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
