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

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

Now that the Silly Season is over, we can regain focus on important things like conspicuous consumption, winter clearance sales, and Season 4 of Project Runway. Two weeks ago we jumped the gun with our Episode 6 Elimination Odds, not realizing that Bravo was giving the show a two-week break. The past two weeks have been a difficult time for us with neither Project Runway nor The Real Housewives of Orange County, and we're glad they're over. We actually started to read.

Check this week's odds.




The classic Negroni is simply equal parts gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth. You can do better.

  • 5 parts Plymouth gin
  • 2 parts Campari
  • 1 part Pimm's No. 1 Cup
  • 1 part sweet vermouth
  • 1 part dry vermouth
  • 2 dashes of orange bitters

Quick shake or stir and pour into chilled Martini glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
