Eyes on the Prize
Convertibles can occasionally call for added eye protection. Whether you're driving in dusty conditions or chilly air, these goggles will keep your lookers safe and sound. Or maybe you just want to look like an old-timey pilot. Based on a design first used by airmen in the '40s, the traditionally styled goggles feature a leather facemask, adjustable nose bridge, laminated glass lenses, and a polished chrome frame.
Vespa scooters that would have otherwise met their demise in a scrap heap now have a second shot at life. It's a great idea for recycling, yes. But even cooler is the chic Italian style they can add to your home or office. Inquire for pricing
Links To The Past
You know the famous Aston Martin DBR1/2 that won Carroll Shelby his first victory at Le Mans in 1959? The car driven by none other than Sir Stirling Moss? You might want to sit down for this-we'll wait. It's now possible to buy just a little piece of this automotive history. Made from damaged and age-distressed aluminum body panels removed during restoration of the DBR1/2 (with 18-carat gold arms), these cufflinks are wearable history. You'd better hop to it, though. Only 100 pairs will ever be made.
A Real Hardcase
Real manly luggage is hard to find these days. Most of what's out there are wimpy, soft fabric suitcases, maybe with a fancy badge slapped on top to up the price. Rimowa suitcases are the real deal. Made in Germany of sturdy materials-aluminum, polycarbonate-Rimowa cases can keep your stuff safe even with the most disgruntled of baggage handlers, and somehow manage to keep looking cooler the more abuse they take. Prices vary by size
If you're an avid automotive enthusiast, a lover of schematic drawings, or just someone who appreciates extraordinary design, you know you need one of these Haynes Manuals on your wall. Prints are available of classic cars, motorcycles, and airplanes. Car manuals include a vintage Porsche Carrera, Jaguar E-Type, and Mini Cooper, among many others. With tons of color and size choices, the only question is, which wall are you gonna put it on? Prices vary by size
Finally, a product for both the audiophile and fans of De Stijl artist and abstract geometric painter Piet Mondrian. Elac, purveyor of lux audio gear, created this fantastic speaker set and hi-fi subwoofer (reportedly the smallest ever of its kind) as an homage to the Dutch Neo-Plasticist artist. Your ears and your eyes will thank you. Inquire for pricing
