Game-Day Belt

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

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

Ask the MB: Col. Kilgore's Sunglasses in Apocalypse Now

'Lance, I bet you can't wait to get out there. See, you can break both ways. One guy can break right, one left simultaneous. What do you think of that?'

Q: What brand and model of sunglasses does Robert Duvall's character, Col. Kilgore, wear in Apocalypse Now? Searching for those for a while and can't figure them out.

A: We had a strong hunch they were Randolph Engineering aviators, and after contacting their marketing department yesterday, confirmed it. They're $99 and available here. But fair warning: these really work best for Col. and above.

(See previous post regarding Kilgore's slightly less-successful dogtag and bracelet accessorization.)
