alternative black tie - cover

Just because it says “Black tie” doesn’t mean you have to dress in traditional penguin tuxedo. The key is understanding the rationale behind the black tie dresscode. General interpretation is that when the invite states “black tie”, the implication is that it’s a formal affair, requiring gentlemanly elegance in posh surrounds. Still, while every man should own […]

Moose + Pine Cool Smartphone Wallet 1

Moose + Pine is admirable in the fact that this is essentially a one woman venture. Granted, she was born in the birthplace of zen-simple design, Helsinki, Finland but Mari Forssell has overcome great odds, eventually moving to US after five years in the UK.

The '14" Trillo Messenger' bag is offered in dark brown Vachetta leather with water resistant dark blue nylon lining. This discreetly practical bag includes an outside leather strip to hold the daily newspaper along with an adjustable, detachable leather shoulder strap, and a separate inner section to fit up to a 14-inch laptop.
