Can the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 get any crazier? Well, the team at Mansory believed so, as they often do. The latest custom creation from the German powerhouse takes the all-terrain beast to a whole new level of extreme, with a curvy carbon fibre body kit and a bit of redesign just for starters. The completely rebuilt twin turbo engine features a new side exit exhaust that allows this monster to breathe easy while its 829bhp and over 730lbs of torque do all the work. The Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 by Mansory ($CALL) has to be experienced to be believed.

OK, I know summer is just getting started, but you may want to take a look at Schott's Car Coat ($325) for when things start to cool down. If you're not familiar with Schott, they are an American icon. For over 100 years they've created beautifully crafted clothing, mainly geared towards the motorcycle community. Their Car Coat is a beautifully minimal coat made from Melton wool. It has a satin lining, with two inside and three outside pockets, and double zipper with button closure. The cut makes a nice fit for those with an athletic build, but it's roomy enough to allow for layers and sweaters.
Chairs, by definition, should be pretty simple things. We just use them for sitting on after all. But, despite their limited breadth of usefulness, this is no excuse for not making them look awesome. In this regard, it is clear that the legendary American designer, Charles Eames, was singing from the same hymn sheet with his timeless classic, the DSW Chair which, such is its extraordinary excellence, is on permanent display in the Musuem of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. Don't try and sit on it though - the security guards get pretty mad! Originally released in 1948, the Charles Eames DSW Chair ($177) is a bit like a fine wine insomuch it has got better with age and it looks awesome in today's contemporary homes so if you're up for some new furniture, this iconic piece will be a good place to start.
There is nothing worse than being in a meeting and having your iPhone start acting up. The thing about that little switch on the side is that it is not a mute button. It is simply a switch to silence the phones ringer. The offshoot is that other apps, Siri, or your entertainment files can still cause a commotion. In comes the Mutator ($13). It's a simple device that plugs into the headphone jack on your iDevice. When it's engaged it silences your device completely. And with a simple 90-degree twist you can disengage silent mode. The Mutator is simple, sleek and provides piece of mind.
