For a tea drinker, loose tea significantly improves the experience over bagged tea: manufacturers ship lower quality, poorly processed tea leaves and stems in bags of measured quantity; whereas loose tea provides higher quality product and the ability to precisely measure how much tea versus how much water, allowing more flavor without forcing more astringent tannin extraction. The Japanese Tetsubin accepts hot water and itself heats up; by filling first with hot water and then...

I recently realized I hadn't bought new jeans in probably 8 years or so (and I'm 28)! I always by used jeans and have 1 pair at a time for the last couple years. Those days are gone since I went to Dave's in Manhattan. They have Levis for $30-$40 which is $15-$20 off normal price. I thought I'd be going for the 514's since I'm 6'1" and not "skinny" skinny. I tried them on and after a hot summer with my pant legs always rolled up because of the swampy weather in Brooklyn, the 514's just...

NOTE: dont disregard this review if you only have a single baby...they make those too! All, As some of you know...I'm a Twins Parent. Which means if I can't find time to do the things I love juggling the twins...it doesn't get done! As such, when my wife brought home the In Step Twins jogging stroller...I was in heaven. My biggest fear was whether or not it would be too heavy to run with. Well...just took it for a 4+ mile run and here is the review! Price: At $200+ a...

I bought this watch off of an Ebay vendor about a month ago. It took about a week to get it and I have been wearing everyday since. I am thoroughly satisfied so far but read below for more info. Price: This was $54 dollars including shipping from Singapore. There are cheaper ones listed but you have to pay shipping. Make sure you do the math to get the best price. Quality: After 3 weeks it has performed very well. It does seem to gain about a minute a week but this is not a...

*I'm not sure what "Fit & Finish" means, so I left it blank. I decided to get myself a nicer pen, as I don't like disposables too much. My local stationer suggested to be this pen, which for the price ($13.29 to be exact), is a good deal. Price: $13.29. 'Nough said. Packaging: Just a small, simple box. No complaints here. Quality: The pen has a nice heft to it. The black finish is nice, and the gold-metal trim is a nice touch. There's a rubber grip, which I guess is nice. When I...

Got it as my first fountain pen. The weight seems appropriate for something this small. The packaging was just a cheap gold color box it was shoved in, so nothing fancy. I am using Waterman black ink with this pen. The shell is made from a thick casing of steel. The finish seems nice and should last. I believe the caps are plastic. When filling it, I noticed that the reservoir seems a bit on the cheaper side. It doesn't display how much ink is left, so I guess I will just get a surprise one...

This stuff and the rest of obenauf's lineup were created to protect the boots of firefighters. I had some leather items I wanted to keep in good shape and decided to give obenauf's leather oil a try. It works great and is readily absorbed into the leather in a very short time. It may not be the cheapest stuff out there ($15.95 for 16 oz.), but a little goes a long way and the fantastic results are worth it. Another nice thing about it is it does not contain neatsfoot or mink oil, which some...

I got myself one of these as a christmas present to myself and I am glad I did. The purchase was a result of a relatively new-found interest in wrist watches. Appearance This watch is from Breitling's AeroMarine line and has a quite rugged overall appearance. As is typical for this brand there is plenty of detail and has a very unique presence on the wrist. The full polished finish gives this model a definite air of refinement that balances the rugged lines and contours of the case and...

I've only had one other Benchmade, an 806D2 with Axis lock, and it was a nicely designed knife that was ruined by some rather lackadaisical grind-lines. I wasn't sure if it was a Friday afternoon knife or what, but I never thought much more about Benchmades after that, because there were always good factory knives available from Spyderco, and I was mainly getting custom fixed blades at that time anyway. Well, over the years I bought a lot of small fixed blades, always looking for...

The Gymboss Personal Interval Timer This is the product I have been waiting years for. As a martial artist, I like to workout on the ole' punching bag, and have for a long time wanted a way to setup consistently timed workouts. Being already familiar with interval training, I wanted to incorporate it into my bag workout. All I had was a stop watch, but you really can't get fully focused on the workout when you have to keep checking the watch and resetting it. There are ways, but they...

I'm not a gadget guy by any means and I'm really not a wine gadget guy. I was introduced to the Vinturi by my local wine merchant who is more old school than Moses when it comes to the grape in all its forms. He was utterly sold on this little item and had me doing A/B comparisons for an hour or so in his shop a couple of weeks ago. I was immediatley sold -- though continued the lengthy A/Bing purely for appearances:lol: -- and gladly dropped the $40 retail for it. Essentially, it works...

Once you subscribe to a men's fashion magazine it seems as if your mailbox fills with dozens of catalogs from various clothiers. One of those that seems to hit the post box every month or so is Charles Tyrwhitt. After looking around online and seeing they had a good reputation I decided to take the leap and order three of their "white twill non iron classic dress shirts." This is an 80's cloth with a traditional collar. I am always on the hunt for high quality dress shirts in the under...

This is a great little glass even if it does look a little funny. I've drank Scotch out of a variety of glassware and this is by far my favorite. I've used shot glasses, tumblers, wine glasses, cognac glasses, small snifters, large snifters, and wine glasses. This is what works best for Scotch, IMO. This glass is from the Riedel Vinum Collection, which are machine made crystal glassware, but still made with 24% lead crystal. A great glass and a big savings over hand crafted crystal...
