The Tie Bar's Bondi Stripe Cotton Tie

 via TheTieBar.com

via TheTieBar.com

A lightly colored, cotton tie gives off a sophisticated summer feel that is sure to make a good impression. This Bondi stripe tie from The Tie Bar adds a bit of color, a delicate pattern and some texture to a plain light gray suit. Matching this with some other blue-themed accoutrements will really make your outfit come together and pop. Starting with a tie that really shows off your understated sense of style is a great way to sneakily become best dressed (beside the wedding party) at any wedding. A note on wedding colors, do not feel a need to match the wedding colors. In fact, it's almost better to choose a color that is a fairly large departure as to not accidentally look like you are a part of the wedding party.

Indochino Hayle Sharkskin Light Gray Suit

 via Indochino.com

via Indochino.com

This week, our theme is wedding season. If you are in your mid to late 20's, chances are you have been to at least one so far this year, and now it's time to start thinking about what you are going to wear to the other 3-7 you have this year. To kick things off, let's go with the standard wedding attire canvas, the suit. Light gray is a safe color to go to, as many grooms these days are going with medium gray, navy blue, or black. This light gray is also a great for summer formal events, and can be worn to work, so it's not just a wedding party suit. This suit from Indochino is made to measure, meaning you give them your measurements, and they make a suit just for you. It shouldn't need tailoring, and if it does, you can stop into one of their showrooms to get it taken care of for free. In terms of quality, I personally have 3 Indochino suits, 2 of which are 5 years old and I still wear them today, which is more than I can say for my Jos. A. Bank suits. What's even better, Indochino lets you customize the suit to a pretty extensive degree, I suggest going with 2 buttons, dual vent, and a notch lapel. As for the liner, go crazy.

Club Monaco Super Slim Linen Pant

 via ClubMonaco.com

via ClubMonaco.com

When on Summer vacation, temperature control is key when packing and picking out outfits. Wearing tight, thick chinos or jeans is a great way to chafe or cultivate a bit of a swamp in the nether regions. Avoid these by packing lightweight pants, like these linen-cotton blend chinos from Club Monaco. The classic 5-pocket construction, gives them the look of jeans or standard chinos, but without any of the heavy-weight fabric. We suggest getting them in bleach, which is a slightly off-white, because, you're going on vacation, and why not? These will also look great once you get a bit of a tan going. We say show off your style, and your tan while you stay cool.

UE Boom 2

via Ultimateears.com

We have highlighted the UE Boom before, mostly because we can't recommend them highly enough. This indoor/outdoor speaker can take a massive beating, and keep on pumping out the beats. Waterproof in 1 m of water for up to 30 mins, this party starter can be left out in the rain, have drinks spilled on it, and take a windy day on the beach in stride. If you are planing on being outside, and jamming is on the agenda, the UE Boom is the way to go, hands down. What is even cooler is that you can pair up to 50 of these tubular audio blasters together, so you can pipe the party music throughout what ever beach, mountain, or lake house you are occupying during your vacation.

This week, we are in vacation mode. So be prepared to look through beachy, adventure-driven goods picks this week. To kick things off, the corner stone of any vacation-packing endeavor, the swim trunks. We always suggest you bring at least two, and one should be these. With a 6.5" inseam and a fairly short outer seam, these retro-inspired thigh huggers are short enough to not give you a weird tan line, and re cut to show off those muscle monsters you've been toning all winter. These shorts are made from 100% nylon, meaning they will dry quickly, and with a snap pocket, you can keep a little bit of cash in the back pocket just in case, without worrying if it will get taken by the waves, or a slimy beach invader.

Versanora Romanza Tripod Floor Lamp

 via Wayfair.com

via Wayfair.com

What is often overlooked when making a space feel warm and homey is lighting. Lighting is critical and can offer a warm glow, or a brighter focus-inducing feel based on the type of lamp, bulb, and positioning of the lamp. Table lamps offer great task lighting, while floor lamps like this one by Versanora offer great ambient lighting for a general warm glow. While finding the right bulb (in terms of wattage and overall color) might take a few tries, a warm free standing lamp looks great next to a couch, bookshelf or accent chair. So try adding some warm glow to your hang out spots and amp up the moodiness of your abode.

Accent chairs are truly a sign that you have elevated your home style game. It's the equivalent of transitioning from posters to art. Or at least going from thumb tacking your posters to framing them. A mid-century modern, minimalistic chair like this one from !nspire is a great for smaller spaces, and living room because it is comfortable but doesn't take up much room. The warm wood balances the cool gray, and the back position promotes conversation rather than a "curl up and sleep" type posture. So invite over some buddies, pour some bourbon or scotch and partake in some enlightening conversation in this sophisticated accent chair.

Alpha Brain by ONNIT

 via onnit.com

via onnit.com

We normally don't go into nootropics or performance enhancers on here, mostly because it takes a while to try them and really relay the effects. We have given Alpha Brain a true shot. After a month of use, we can convey that, while it's a little pricey, it does actually improve focus and memory recall. Writing all of the time can be a grueling process, especially if your brain isn't firing on all cylinders. We have tried Alpha brain, specifically in the afternoons after lunch when focus is at an all time low, and have found that it has increased our afternoon productivity by at least 60%, which is huge. The recommended dose is 2 capsule and after trying to pinch it to 1, 2 really is where the effects are noticed. Now, this is the drug from limitless, and we haven't solved world peace, and discovered a new start, planet or miracle cure, but a little mental boost in when we feel ourselves fading is always useful. We also tried gaming with this (playing Overwatch) and found that quick decision making and reaction times were a bit better, increasing gold medals earned and competitive rank :).
