THROWBACK EDITION BIKE #10 JOCKSTRAPS at JOCKSTRAP CENTRAL
As many of you know, a year ago, Bike Europe made the brilliant decision to do a limited edition run of the Bike #10 jockstrap. They called it the Vintage Throwback Edition, and it was awesome in every aspect. As expected, they sold out in no time. Well, by popular demand (and constant begging) Bike Europe has done a second run of only 6000 and Jockstrap Central has them — and at a special 10% off relaunch pricing.
This Vintage Edition is styled after the original that was made first in 1874. With a special throwback insert for the clamshell packaging, this is truly a collector’s item. They’re sure to sell out fast.
It’s everything you expect of your #10 — with a woven moisture wicking pouch that’s soft out of the box and with this Throwback Edition, Bike didn’t go crazy on the bleach so it already looks like a vintage jock you’ve been wearing for years with its antique white coloring.
This #10 Jockstrap also has the tough and snug full three-inch wide white waistband you expect to give you all the support you need. Finally, it wouldn’t be a number 10 without the centered outside label and signature black and red striping.
With a limited run and Jockstrap Central‘s special relaunch pricing we probably don’t have to tell you to snap these up quickly before they’re gone again.
The Bow Tie Book, hardcover, amazon.com
Coming April 7 is The Bow Tie Book by James Gulliver Hancock. I like bow ties because they can’t get in the way as a regular tie can. Also they can be tied in such a way as to be less constricting to the neck than a regular, so I find, and for that reason they can be more comfortable in warm weather.
The perfect adornment for the bookshelves of today’s modern gentleman, The Bow Tie Book is the first illustrated book devoted to the classic menswear accessory. “If you have a swagger, a bow tie can be a badge of courage…The bow is not for the timid of heart…but a beautifully asymmetrical, slightly tousled bow is a perfect look for a romantic nonconformist man of style.” —GQ style writer Glenn O’BrienFrom its humble beginnings around the necks of seventeenth-century Croatian mercenaries, the bow tie has evolved to become one of the signature accessories in the modern gentleman’s wardrobe. Once relegated to the uniforms of nerds, waiters, and wedding parties, bow ties now adorn the collars of men of all ages and appear on the runways of Paris and London as well as the streets of Brooklyn and Silver Lake. More than an accessory, bow ties tell the world you are a man of style, substance, and individuality; a man who likes to stand out in a crowd but is polite; a man who respects himself and those around him enough to put his best foot forward; a man of whimsy, intelligence, and imagination. The Bow Tie Book includes a brief history of the bow tie and features more than 100 full-color and black-and-white photographs of bow tie–wearing men, along with quotes and essays from bow tie wearers, designers, and their admirers. It also includes over 20 full-color illustrations created specially for this book by noted artist James Gulliver Hancock, as well as a fully illustrated and removable “How to Tie a Bow Tie” cheat sheet. The Bow Tie Book makes the perfect gift for the uniquely stylish man.
