There's an elegance to antique globes that lends a sense of sophistication to any setting. But with the ability to store your booze, these globes are so much more than just pretty centerpieces.

No, they aren't terribly flashy kicks, and no, they probably won't turn heads. What they will do, however, is give you a timeless look of understated cool and class. An undisputed fact: every man should own a pair of cap-toe dress shoes. Why not make them classic American-made Allen Edmonds Park Avenues? Not only are they the most expertly built and long-lasting shoes around, they're also the most comfortable. And if they're good enough for U.S. Presidents and Supreme Court Justices, they're good enough for you.
There are a whole mess of lipstick cams out there, but the ContourHD really sets itself apart. Not only can you attach it to a variety of surfaces-your helmet, a car window, a snowboard-but it actually records in true HD. We're talking vivid colors, huge format and stunning details in a smart, tough little package. See the red dots on either side of the lens? There's no viewfinder, so these lasers help you align your shot perfectly. Then all you do is push the switch to record. The lens can even rotate 180 degrees depending on where the camera is mounted.

Unzip the bag, lay it flat, and away you go.
Hear Ye, Hear Ye
