Game-Day Belt

Facepainting & foam fingers are not you. A belt made of NFL football leather is. Understated fanaticism FTW!

Game-Day Luxury Box

Transport your game-day suds in style, on a carpet of AstroTurf & a handle made of NFL football leather

Secret Agent Belt

Look like a fictional British Secret Service agent for just $30.07

300-Year Sterling Silver Buckle Belt

Built to look great forever — even if you live to 300


Top Toolbag's Table Manners

Top Toolbag's Table Manners
While we all anxiously await the forthcoming Magnificent Bastard Dining Guide, Top Chef host Tom Colicchio demonstrates some really bad table manners.

Top: Lift your goddamn arm off the table.

Bottom: Don't lick your goddamn fingers.

And this guy is the host of Top Chef...

Ask the MB -- A.1. Steak Sauce

Ask the MB -- A.1. Steak Sauce
Q: I know you guys are here to advise us on how to look the part. That said, my roommate took your advice to heart about the Axe (female remover), thanks a ton, but he was out with us on a nice dinner out with some of the local secretaries, and when the steaks came, he drowned the beef in A.1. I've been a fan of A.1. at many a backyard BBQ, but how un-magnificent is it to dowse a $50 steak in public with that stuff?

A: Son, at this point you need to consider your roommate solely as a piece of meat: he's only good for paying the rent. Quick find some new people to hang out with before your social standing is completely eroded.

(Stay tuned for forthcoming Magnificent Bastard Dining Guide.)



Old Fashioned

  • 1 raw sugar cube
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 3 oz bourbon

On bottom of Old Fashioned glass (what else?) dribble bitters on sugar cube. Muddle. Fill with ice, then with bourbon. Garnish with lemon twist. No, not a thick orange wedge, handful of cherries, or a cup of fruit salad. A simple lemon wedge.
