Burton, Love

burton_love2.jpgIn honor of the Sundance Film Festival, currently in full swing in Park City, Utah, we decided to look to the mountains for inspiration.  While we know that sports and scantily clad women go hand in hand, as easily as a Liberty print and a pocket square, rarely do we find taste and restraint in those same circles.   Enter the Burton Love line of snowboards.  The top graphics of these boards feature perfectly posed beauties in the buff, the photography an homage to the fetching soft-core of 70's era Playboy spreads.  The base of the boards don more revealing posterior profiles.   In an era of excess, dumbed down, over-the-top everything and far too liberal nostalgic looting, these boards have found a way to land on the side of class and not kitsch.

Le Sport Sac

It seems that we're on an eternal hunt for a good bag.  We eschew the 'gear' look, we're not bike messengers, thank god we haven't succumbed to the gym-bag-only (though we looking for a good gym bag as well) and brief cases are too impractical for the lifestyle.
This bag from the Guys Collection at Le Sport Sac caught our eye.
