I took a 7 week coast to coast road trip after being laid off from Boeing. I didn’t have a camper but realized that being able to pull off the road at a rest or truck stop was the way to go to make the trip affordable. With a few sheets of 1/2” plywood and misc. hardware this is what I came up with. The effort was well worth the time and materials.
Lauren being home makes life so much more beautiful
Men don’t have a lot of options when it comes to accessories. If you’re not an earring, necklace, or bracelet man, there aren’t many things to add to the uniform. Unfortunately, even within watches our options have been historically thin. Metal band, leather band, dohickies on the face, minimalist. There’s been a trend of ceramic watches that provide a new outlet for colors, but I suspect the brightness they bring to a man’s wrist won’t last long.
Certainly, there are plenty of beautiful watches out there, but they’re a little familiar. If you follow me on twitter (which you should @primermag) then you may have caught my tweet about my longing of another recent surge: the wooden watch.
At face value, it seems somewhat like a silly idea. A watch made of wood. “Does that go down 100 meters?” I hear you chortle. But I make no apologies: There is something unique, classy, and masculine about wearing a timepiece made of fallen timber.
I opted for the Tense square watch in sandalwood. The rich brown color offers a unique addition to getups ranging from casual to smart casual. It would look perfect with The Getups like Up and At ‘Em, A Full Saturday, or The Casual Office. This watch, beyond its looks is astonishingly light. If you’re a guy who hates the recent trend of wearing bulky barbells as watches, you’ll love this watch.
New planets painted — Scientists using NASA’s Kepler telescope have found two distant planets that are in the right place and are the right size for potential life. This handout image from Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics shows an artist concept of what these two planets, called Kepler-62-e and Kepler-62-f look like. The larger planet in the left corner is somewhat covered by ice and is f, which is farther from the star. The planet below it is e, which is slightly warmer and has clouds and may be a water world.
