If you live a nice casual bike ride on the weekends and also love craft beers, then you can have your cake and eat it too. The Meriwether Leather Bike Growler Carrier ($95) lets you take your favorite beverage with you on your bike outings. So when you get to your destination you can relax with some awesome suds. The growler carrier is handcrafted from vegetable tanned leather and can be attached to seat hooks or directly to the post.
This bad boy is not for civilian use, but I'm hoping they create a civilian version just like they did with the Hummer. The Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon LAPV (Light Armored Patrol Vehicle) 6.X ($TBA) is a military vehicle for patrolling war zones and areas of instability around the world. The LAPV 6.X can carry over 2,866 pounds of cargo and pretty much take it anywhere you want to go. It features a high torque common-rail diesel engine which can plow through any obstacle, on-the-fly adjustable suspension, 18 inches of ground clearance, and a full combat communications and jamming system. The LAPV 6.X is something you'd definitely want to get your hands on if there was a zombie apocalypse.
Again Hard Graft have taken their keen eye and use of wool and leather to create a great EDC pack. The Wool Flat Pack by Hard Graft ($369) is made from Italian wool on the front and premium Italian vegetable tanned leather on the back. The bag is handmade in their Italian workshop to their exacting standards. The Wool Flat Pack comes in three sizes to perfectly fit your iPad or MacBook. The Wool Flat Pack is not to big, not to small, it's just right. More pictures after the break.(more…)
Last week we shared with you Fear of God's Season 4 Collection. This week designer Jerry Lorenzo has just dropped some photos of his upcoming Fear Of God Season 4 Footwear Collection ($TBA). Based on the images the shoes take inspiration from military boots. They're made with a beautiful leather upper with a white sole that has a jagged patterned outsole. Stayed tuned for details on the release date for this collection.
Again brothers Justin & Jarrod Del Prado have created another work of art, the Alpaca By DP Customs ($NFS). Justin and Jarrod wanted a bike to sit permanently in their shop, so they rebuilt one of Justin's personal bikes, a 1979 1000cc Ironhead Sportster. Their goal was to build a hot rod that was low and long.Customizations include a bobber hardtail, a rebuilt engine with forged pistons and new valve and spring, and new turbo, aluminum intake and exhaust system. The 19" front wheels were created by Thomason Performance, with a 15x5 steel wheel from a car, modified to work with a Harley Hub. It looks like the boys finally have the perfect bike for their shop.
I love smaller homes. But this Perfect 540 Square Foot Oregon Home ($NFS) uses every inch of its minimal footprint better than most smaller homes out there. The home was originally built in the 1940s as a shipyard house for Vanport Village. When the village flooded the house was moved down river to Sauvie Island. It was then purchased by the current owners in 2008. Jessica Helgerson Interior Design then got their hands on it and made it the little gem it is today. They replaced the worn out roof with a green roof that was planted with moss and ferns. Then they remodeled the main room to house the kitchen, dining room and living room. The sofas double as twin guest beds and drawers under the sofas hold the kids toys. The home has two rooms; the parents loft and the kids room which have bunk beds and a full bed for company. This home represents a perfect use of a small amount of space.
