I am not a huge breakfast guy. I eat breakfast food, but usually not for breakfast. To make the art of breaking your fast more enjoyable, Ivo Vos has decided to make the tools of breakfast that much cooler.

Besides the toaster that can launch your toast to your plate, there are a lot more things to check out. I honestly suggest you check this guy out, because you honestly might, like me, start reconsidering your views on breakfast.

Shirtvest?!

My Boy, Errol

So, I don’t even really know how to describe this. I went to a party and a friend of mine, Errol, walks up  donning this shirt vest shirtvest (I guess you would call it) and bow tie combo. It was made for him by designer, Nathaniel Johnson of Nathaniel’s Originals in Rochester, NY. As far as I know, it’s the only one. Kudos to him for rocking this. Whether it’s your thing or not, you have to admit, the uniqueness and sheer nature of it is pretty slick.

Move Over LL Bean

Stylish men have unabashedly utilized LL Bean, Lands’ End, and other hunting/outdoorsy type of outfitters in order to give their weather-conscious style days a bit of somber practicality. Gourmet, a brand that specialized in making footwear wants to give fashionable men a fashionable shoe to wear in inclement weather.

These are fresh takes on classics and will probably make you think twice of wearing other types of boots or shoe protectors (galoshes). Their site seems to be under construction, but they have a blog that has some cool stuff to check out.

The Navy Blazer, 2.0

GQ and Esquire would routinely issue a call for “a return to the Navy blazer!” as if they are the Che’s of the fashion universe. The reality is that the navy blazer will never, has never, and will always look good on anyway, for any occasion.

However, when it comes to actual revamps of the navy blazer, you really don’t have to do too much to make it look great. Honestly, it is just about fit. Make sure it fits right, and you have a great staple.

Enter J. Lindeberg’s navy blazer. Now, it is very traditional, and the only thing that makes it an actual revamp of the Navy Blazer is making use of very well-known elements in a way not usually seen. The peak lapels (those are the pointy lapel you see above) are made to give the navy blazer an edge and honestly, looking at the cut of the jacket, it seems to work very well. Ignore the shirt and tie in the image above, they look terrible with this jacket, but pair it with some color, and you have a great look. At $288, it’s not too bad either.

Check it out here.

Rugby Socks

Do you know what is the most underrated item in fashion? Socks. Many of you probably realize that I love Ralph Lauren’s Rugby experiment, and the little details of this sock simply furthers that appreciation.

Also, Ralph Lauren socks are always super comfortable, especially since these are $9.

Square, Pocket Square.

So, unless you happen to be a double agent, a mobster, or a high ranking controversial political figure, I can’t say that this item is necessarily “practical”. What I can say though, is that it is pretty freaking awesome. This bulletproof pocket square seems to be something straight out of a secret agent’s personal closet. The item has already been dubbed the “Pimp’s Pocket Square” produced by Liboruis, and is currently only one of only one of ten in the world. The price is TBA but I’m sure this one wont be cheap!

I know this thing looks really weird. I also realize you are wondering what the hell this is. This is a 3D game controller. Yes, you heard right, a 3D game controller.

We thought that the Nintendo’s Wiimote was awesome, but, seeing this thing is amazing. Now, when I saw this image I was wondering how the hell it worked. Frankly, I don’t think you should be reading my description, rather, with special thanks to TigerDirect’s vlog, check out as they review and illustrate how the controller works:
