Most guys, to my knowledge, don’t enjoy browsing online shops. So, in an effort to reduce the amount of browsing necessary for our fans of the manly variety, we’ve created a new category in our shop for Guys. Here is a sampling of some of the items featured in our new section:
One of my favorite new items comes from our friends at Yellow Owl Workshop. This little ship painting is perfect for so many places in my apartment I’m going to have to resist taking it home with me until one of you buys it! The robot shirt by Intl Robot is new to our shop too and it’s been flying off the shelves. Get yours quick! And lastly, this notebook and cover is handmade, designed and screenprinted by the wonderful Chikabird ladies with a funky rendering of a stack of stereo equipment that would make record loving dudes drool.
Every guy has a picture or two he’d like to have framed. Maybe of his mom, or girlfriend, or his dog. This reclaimed wood frame by Eric Erf is perfect. It’s got style, it’s got class, and yet, it’s so rugged, so casual. Maybe there is someone you owe a little note to, or you want to thank your groomsmen? This Retro Ride Blank Note by Rubina is fun for any occasion. And, now on to the more important stuff: Biggs and Featherbelle‘s handmade natural Bark Soap is made with shea butter (so your skin will be all soft) and green tea (so it will be all healthy and stuff) and cedarwood oil (which has astringent & antiseptic properties, so you’ll, like, actually be clean) and cypress oil (so you’ll smell all manly). I guess this is no axe body spray, but I wouldn’t mind sitting next to you if you smelled this good.
Rock posters rock. And Dan Grzeca makes an especially rockin rock posters. This Explosions in the Sky Poster is just one of the many awesome rock and art prints we carry. If you see something you like in our online shop, click on the listing and then be sure to click on the artist’s logo at the bottom right to see more of their work. Dan Grzeca is definitely one of those artists you should check out. Also above is a double folding wallet by Chikabird and a Set of Cork Coasters with a diagram of a camera printed on them. I think that might be as manly as coasters get…
Hand sewn and hand silkscreened, this tie by Jes Switaj is beautiful! It’s bright blue, but saturated color, hip silkscreened design, and skilled craftswomanship make it appropriate for all kinds of occasions. Really, try to think of one where it wouldn’t be. In a business meeting it says, “I’m serious about this deal, I’ll sting you if you don’t sign.” On a date it says, “I’m classy, ’cause I wear a tie – bit I’m hip, I know that jellyfish are in right now.” And at a funeral you can just wear a vest over the design. Similarly, these Green Owl Cuff Links add charm and pizazz to any French cuff shirt you might have. They are handmade of fused glass by Happy Owl Glassworks. And if you’re not so much of a tie wearer but you like saving the earth, check out this wallet made out of a recycled tie by Prix-Prix.
So, you see we’re not all flowers and puppies around here! We’ve got plenty of manly stuff. And now it’s all tucked in a special place just for guys!
