One of my favorite spring jackets ever was a tan corduroy. Unionmade and United Arrows have gotten together to create another classic. The Unionmade + United Arrows Corduroy Jacket ($235) is made from pleated fine-wale corduroy and features twin buttoned flap chest pockets, twin lower hand pockets, and buttoned pleated front and cuffs. Make sure you check your measurements as these coats run small.
FLIIKE ($390) is the first real world Facebook Like counter. Although it's specially designed for businesses it would be a pretty cool gift for your friends who are Facebook junkies. The FLIIKE is real easy to install; just plug it in, connect it to Smiirl's Wi-Fi network, setup your Wi-Fi network and password, then go to smiirl.com and setup you Facebook page. The counter only goes to 99,999k so if you're past that many likes you're way too cool for the FLIIKE.
