We’re sure you’ve heard of this refreshing, apple-based beverage, but you probably never got a chance to really know it. Beer is always trying to steal the spotlight, but we think it’s time for hard cider to shine. How is it made exactly? Similar to how grapes are used for wine, apples are pressed, the [...]
When brothers Ben and Doug Burkman aren’t designing their calm and cool (and hella comfortable) menswear brand – Burkman Bros. or traveling the world for work inspiration, you might find them in the gym. Be it a CrossFit in London, Rio, Sao Paolo, New Delhi, Bangkok, Tokyo or Hong Kong. As they explained to us, [...]
We appreciate men who dress the part. Take Tim Campbell. He is an interior designer based both in Los Angeles and New York. He is known for his work with modernist houses such as Vidal Sassoon’s Neutra designed Singleton House and his current work on a Rex Lotery house (which has an adult playroom -we [...]
From leave-to-no-imagination banana hammocks to $200 tailored shorts, swim suits for guys have come a long way over the past decade. Enter Paste, a graphic-driven lifestyle company that happens to strike that perfect middle ground by offering some of the most eye-catching prints this season while taking itself not too seriously at an affordable price [...]
Aside from my trusty headlamp and the occasional GPS unit, I’ve always been of the mind that high-tech gadgets have no place in the backcountry. Not only do most gadgets have trouble withstanding the elements, they also rely on a limited power supply, so if/when the juice runs out, you’re often left with little more [...]
The Lonely Island, the hilarious music trio behind “Lazy Sunday”, “I’m on a Boat” and other SNL digital shorts has finally released their third album which is titled “The Wack Album”. In case you haven’t been on the internet ever, the group is composed of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer. The three [...]
Ryan Jesse spent many a summer Saturday morning with his dad and grandfather fishing on the Fraser River in Vancouver, British Columbia when he was young. After a hiatus, he rediscovered the sport three years ago with his dad. “[We] bought a rod and went sockeye fishing. Since then we go out every summer and [...]
It’s time to ride the seven seas this summer — okay, maybe not the seven seas but you’re definitely going to enjoy a boat of some sort. We’re hoping to hang out on a few yachts or maybe a sailboat ourselves, but we’ll happily settle for a fishing excursion with our friends. Always pick something [...]
Just off the coast of Seattle, Chelsea Green and James Minola run their design studio Grain on Bainbridge Island. With a eco-friendly focus, they established Grain in 2007 with their first product: the Ty shower curtain ($30), made with a recyclable plastic that’s resistant to mold and mildew–on the DIY version ($33), you can draw illustrations [...]
We try out a lot of things here at The Manual. So when a box of MRE’s arrived on our door step we pondered how we were going to try all of these bags of food. Result – We hosted a dinner party with six friends and plenty of wine and bourbon! Meal Kit Supply [...]
The Porsche 911 is celebrating the “Big 5-0” this year, and no automotive birthday is complete without a special edition. Porsche is bringing the heat this year with a redesigned 911 GT3 and 911 Turbo, but the awkwardly named 911 50 Years Edition is based on the tamer Carrera S. Only 1963 units will be sold worldwide, symbolizing the year [...]
Now in its third summer season, things are looking good for Ruschmeyer’s. This joint venture from King and Grove hotels and co-owner / creative director Robert McKinley (of The Surf Lodge fame) has a distinct summer camp vibe to it, which sounds about right considering the original location consisted of one back in 1952. [...]
Most of us have been there — you want something quick and semi healthy to eat, so you grab a container of sushi, like a tuna roll, a Philadelphia roll or the classic California roll. But eating sushi out of an unattractive black plastic container isn’t so attractive. May we suggest the Sushi-Time Sushi Plate? [...]
Skateboards seem to have multiple uses these days, doubling as canvases for artists, furniture — and now a mirror. That’s right, the folks at Suck UK — makers of the Cat Scratch, Dead Fred Pen Holder and the Key Bottle Opener — have come up with a mirror just for guys who hit the decks. [...]
