Contrary to what we all believed when we were kids, it’s not always necessary to advertise your predilections on your clothing. While we all spent many a year proudly declaring our allegiance to a particular band by absolutely living in a ratty, faded tee we picked up at a concert, or relegating ourselves to permanent hat-hair by showing our team spirit emblazoned on a baseball cap, or even sewing patches from our favorite record stores or concert venues to worn-out jackets (hey, we were weird kids), we eventually heard the voice of reason and decided that, yes, it is okay to remain a mystery to the widespread public until they actually talk to us and find out what our interests are. And from that day forth, with the possible exception of the upturned cuffs of our selvage denim, our subtler senses prevailed and a mystery we did indeed remained. That said, there are some moments when we feel the urge to show our true colors, even just a little bit, even just for a fleeting flash. Such a moment: this awesome wallet from Ashland. On the outside, it’s a smart, grown-up, handsome-looking wallet. But open it and the reverse-side Horween boasts the stamp of quality that secretly makes us all grin. It’s sort of like having a secret hand-shake or code word. Hey, just because we became grown-ups, doesn’t mean we have to lose our sense of humor. Get it here.
Sometimes, music and style are so tightly interwoven that it’s difficult to tell which came first. The Mods had their scooters. Glam had glitter. And rock n’ roll? Well, we all know that the uniform for any rock star worth his salt is leather. It makes sense, then, that these Cordovan leather guitar picks by Corter are about as rock n’ roll as you can get. They’ve got all the necessary components of a perfect rock riff: simplicity, longevity, and just a pinch of innovation (plus, there’s a pretty good chance they’ll help you get chicks). Get them here.
