[SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION] Best Men's Swim Trunks on HiConsumption

When you’re planning out your summer wardrobe, there are a million things to consider—sunglasses, sandals, boat shoes—but the most important summer purchase you’re going to make (aside from that flight to Mexico) is a new pair of swim trunks.

They’re going to be with you when you’re hanging out in your buddy’s pool in the suburbs, when you’re at a fancy resort with your fiancé, and when you’re on your father’s new sailboat. You want a pair that will look appropriate in all these situations, but will also be more unique than the plaid trunks everyone else on the beach will be wearing. That’s why we rounded up the 25 best swim trunks for men—get a new pair, or two, depending on how sun-soaked your summer plans are.  Read it at HiConsumption.


[GIFTED] Sleeves are Bullshit Tank Top

SUN'S OUT, GUNS OUT, MOFOS.  Summer is officially here, and there's no better way to trumpet the season of beachy weekend getaways and happy hour drinking on patios than with this Sleeves are Bullshit Tank Top ($28, Buy Me Brunch).  Who needs sleeves?  Not you.  


[SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION] Get the Look: Burt Reynolds

This bastion of ’70s manliness sported an un-ironic mustache, dated beautiful women and rocked the deep, deep, deep v-neck and chest hair look like no other. You can, too, if you take a page out of the book of Burt, just as his most famous flick, Smokey and the Bandit—second only to Star Wars at the box office in ’77—hits its 38th anniversary.

[GIFTED] Emily McDowell Studio Empathy Cards

When someone you love gets sick, it's terrifying.  You want to be supportive, but a lot of times, you don't know what to say or do.  Thankfully, Emily McDowell (a cancer survivor herself) has recently released a line of empathy cards that will help you address a loved one's illness in a way that the cards at Rite Aid never seem to be able to do.  Check them out here.  They're amazing. 


[GIFTED] I Hate Kale Cookbook

As a growing emphasis on healthy, organic eating has even pervaded the most chicken-fried reaches of America, three types of people have emerged: 

1. People who support organic, healthy eating to the point where it's obnoxious.

2. People who are in the middle (they'll eat a kale salad for lunch and a burger for dinner).

3. People who dig their heels in and staunchly refuse to eat things like kale or arugala or beets. 

It is guaranteed that you know at least a few people who fit into the third category, and they're probably your father, your brother, or your boyfriend.  They don't seem to get (or care) that there's nothing attractive about a grown man who will only eat chicken fingers or hot wings.  They ALSO don't seem to understand that if they want to live to see past their 50th birthday, they need to eat some goddamned vegetables.

That's why this I Hate Kale Cookbook ($15, Urban Outfitters) is tailor-made for them.  It's filled with 35 recipes that were crafted for non-believers, expressly to help change their minds.  Good luck.
