Panerai Radiomir Black Seal

In the 1930's, the men in the Italian Royal Navy's Gamma Group, carried out their manoeuvres astride human torpedoes, also known as "pigs" or indeed, "black seals". It is in fact the 1940s style of Officine Panerai's Radiomir that is enhanced in the Radiomir Black Seal - 45 mm model, brought up to date by the use of sporty steel.

Lamborghini Huracàn: Wind, storm and fire...

The Lamborghini Huracán replaces Lamborghini's most produced car, the Gallardo. The Huracán's name (huracán being the Spanish word for hurricane) is inspired by a Spanish fighting bull, like all the other Lamborghini models. Huracán was a bull of the Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed known for its courage that fought in 1879. Also, the Mayan god of wind, storm and fire is called Huracan. So the car has quite a lot to live up to !
Compared to the Gallardo, most important Changes are full LED illumination, a 12.3 inch full-colour TFT instrument panel, Fine Nappa leather and Alcantara interior upholstery, redesigned dashboard and a beautiful central tunnel, Iniezione Diretta Stratificata (IDS) direct and indirect gasoline injections, engine Stop & Start technology, EU6 emissions regulation compliance, Lamborghini Doppia Frizione (LDF) 7-speed dual clutch transmission with 3 modes (STRADA, SPORT and CORSA), 20 inch wheels, carbon-ceramic brake system, optional Lamborghini Dynamic Steering variable steering system and MagneRide electromagnetic damper control. 
The superb Lamborghini Huracán maintains the magnificent 5.2 L naturally aspirated V10 engine from the Gallardo, offering 610 PS (449 kW; 602 hp). To ensure an excellent balance and performance, the car is mid-engined. The V10 has both direct fuel injection and multi-point fuel injection, to combine the benefits of both systems. (It is the first time this combination is used in a V10 engine). To increase ....   read more here

Well, that headline made me as curious as you probably are as well.... So I tested them and ordered a pair of chinos online. It's as easy and quick as it is fun. Just do the following...   Go to 
1. You choose the model. I chose classic chinos, with a tapered fit. I just think it's more elegant. Tapered means that it's a slimmer, more body-conscious fit for the legs (Narrower towards the end) . Waist height I went for high because it gives me more comfort, and when later I opt to wear them with braces, it will look better.
2. Then you have to choose the fabric: I chose Doncaster Mellow Yellow. I chose this because I'm a bit tired of the classic 'beige'/cream-tints. This color is a bit more vibrant. It's a sturdy yet soft twill (265g/m2). Twill is a type of textile weave with a pattern of diagonal parallel ribs. Because of this structure, twills generally drape well.
3. Choose zipper or buttoned fly, and then decide if the button is to be seen or not. Whatever you choose, you can see it in the visual.
4. Choose your side pocket: beveled, rounded or straight. I went for rounded for comfortable and easy access. And when I received the pants, I'm happy I did ! It's excellent !
5. Then up to the back pocket(s): Choices are non, left, right, both, with hook, buttoned or single welt pocket. Again we have lots of choices to make it to our personal liking....
6. You can even add a coin pocket, but I didn't want one, because I never use it.
7. Pleats or no pleats ? I don't like pleats for chinos. Besides, pleats are for khaki's.
Now move on to the extra's: Choose from a wide variety of buttons, contrast buttonhole threads, pocket & waistbelt lining. I kept it all simple and straight. No frills here.
Now you can choose embroidery of up to 3 initials as well. It seemed nice, so I chose BD in Old English characters, dark blue,on the inside pocket.
Now the important part : Measurements ! Hip, seam and inseam. All well explained in videos. Then, additionaly just add your height and weight,..... and you're ready to order !

About a large week, 8 working d...... read more here

Von Eusersdorff: Dandy smells from a small exclusive house

Every once in a while you make a discovery... You discover something not everybody knows. You know it's exclusive, and actually you want to keep it a secret. Yet you have an overwhelming urge to share your discovery... and thus you share. Von Eusersdorff New York, is as such....

The name Von Eusersdorff echoes the historical heritage of the label's founding ancestors: A skilled family of German emigrants involved in the world-trade of rare oils, herbs, spices and petals for nearly three centuries; mastering an artisan practice that was the initial cradle of the perfume industry as we currently know it.
Camille Henfling, the wizard behind the label's rebirth is descended from the Von Eusersdorff lineage. Formally a businessman, he felt the need to re-unite with his inner core; a process which lead him to rediscover his family heritage. Growing up as a child, he remembers the heavily scented atmosphere in the apothecary of his grandfather; his holidays spent exploring the rich aromatic textures inside the warehouses of his family plantations in Costa Rica... or days spent wandering about the herbs and spices stock depots in the Netherlands.
Following a hint, he moved to the perfume Mecca of Grasse in the south of France. For 3 years he learnt all there is to know about the process of creating fragrances, gradually assembling the team of skilled laboratorians that collaborate with him today; there breathing new life into his ancestor's tradition with a contemporary olfactory interpretation rooted in the 21st century.
Classic Patchouli was the first fragrance unveiled by Von Eusersdorff..."as an opus to unforgettable memories". With its long lasting, richly exotic and woody blend of bergamot topped by lush notes of black patchouly, it became an instant hit among the sharper set of international aficionados in New York, Paris, Moscow and Amsterdam. In September 2011, Von   continue reading here
