Found: Mexican Coca-Cola

As a home owner, I find myself at Home Depot more than I care to mention but my last few trips have been well worth it because I recently discovered that they sell Mexican Coca-Cola.

And as a fan of all things space related, if it's good enough for NASA then it's good enough for me.

Every Man Should Own: Wax Wane

Vintage Watch

One of the fondest memories of my latter teenage years was on the cusp of my high school graduation when my dad passed one of his watches down to me.  The watch was decades old and had been with my father for much of his adult life.

New Arrivals: Baracuta Spring/Summer '12

When I think of Baracuta jackets, my mind quickly turns to the classic Harrington famously worn by Steve McQueen. So I love how their new arrivals for the Spring/Summer season stays true to the oringial aestetic of the Harrington but gives it a fresh take by adding a shall collar or a hood with a white outlined zipper.
