Millican is named after the eco-adventure nut, Millican Dalton. They strive to make gear that outlives us and can be passed down to our children and grandchildren. Their Gladstone Bag by Millican ($370) is just such a piece. The bag is great for overnight trips or weekend excursions. It features a large 38 liter interior compartment with false bottom so you can separate play from work, a number of interior and exterior pockets to fit your smaller electronics and a large padded internal pocket that fits a 15" laptop. The Millican has an outer fabric that is made from 100% organic cotton weatherproof canvas, has an interior lining made from 100% organic cotton, and straps made from 70% vegetable tanned leather. Check out the video after the break of the Millican getting ready for an overnighter.(more…)
Being from the suburbs of Detroit, I love hearing stories of daylight for that city. The Falcon F7 ($195K) a Detroit made supercar is one of those stories. The Falcon hails the next generation of muscle cars from Detroit and it has plenty of it. It features a Lingenfelter built twin turbo inter-cooled V8 that pushes 1100 horses. The engine is paired with a high performance 6 speed tranny with a dual disc clutch system. The body panels are completely made from lightweight carbon fiber and kevlar. This not only includes the outer skin, but the interior structural panels as well. All of this contributes to an overall weight of just 2850 lbs. Giving it an amazing power to weight ratio.
The Oliver Peoples West Sunglass Collection ($265+) offers crisp and clean silhouettes that emulate the west coast lifestyle for this summer. The lens colors were chosen to reflect the Pacific Ocean, the sky, the sands of the beach and the color of the sun. With over 20 frames to choose from there is something for everyone.
Dualchas Architects are a building design firm located on the Isle of Skye located in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. Their primary concerns are "sustainability through the use of energy harnessing technology, the choice of materials in the build, and the life-use of the building." The Cliff House By Dualchas Architects ($TBA) is a perfect example of this ethos. The Cliff House is simple two-bedroom home with a wall of glass that allows the residents to take in the majestic views across Loch Dunvegan in north west Skye. Dug out of the side of a hill, it integrates perfectly to its environment and is practically invisible from the front.
The military inspired Briston Clubmaster Watches ($155+) may be the perfect everyday wear watch. All of the watches in the collection feature a Miyota OS21 quartz movement, stainless steel cases, rhodium plated hands, and a 40mm case capped off with a hardened Mineral Crystal. The Clubmasters are water resistant to 100 meters, so they'll be fine in the shower of taking a quick dip in the pool. And just in case you want to switch things up, they come with interchangeable NATO canvas straps, so you can change the color of the strap to match your outfit.
