Tote Your Technology in Style

Whether used for work, personal projects or just for entertainment, it seems we carry our laptops with us more often than not. And no matter how thin the notebook, we’re always on the search for something slimmer and lighter that takes up the least space possible. Laptop envelopes are great for travel near and far, and there are some seriously sleek styles on the market right now. But there is something to be said about eliminating the bulk of even the thinnest sleeve. We found five tech bags that not only have a padded compartment for your laptop with room to spare for the rest of your essentials, they are incredibly stylish as well.

Crumpler x Apple
Australian bag company Crumpler has partnered with Apple for an exclusive line of MacBook bags that have a sporty look about them. The Cut of Horror Backpack not only holds your 15-inch MacBook Pro, there is a separate padded pocket for an iPad. Water-resistant, your gear will be protected from the elements.

Freezing jeans shouldn’t really be a thing — here’s why
Why you should stop putting your jeans in the freezer

Recently, I reached into a friend’s freezer for an ice sphere and came across a pair of neatly folded jeans. This sight took me by surprise not because it was unusual, but because the practice felt so dated. For those that might not have heard of the practice, the idea behind freezing your best jeans is that freezing denim kills bacteria from well-worn jeans without actually having to wash them and affect the fade or overall integrity of the denim.

When did freezing jeans become a thing?
Jeans have been around since 1871. These popular pants were invented by Jacob W. Davis and patented by Davis and Levi Strauss. Though people have anecdotally frozen their denim for years, more as an odor-removing process than anything else, Levi Strauss actually pushed this practice into the mainstream in 2011. In 2014, Levi Strauss' CEO Chip Bergh repeated longstanding advice from the jean company; don't wash your jeans, freeze them instead. Bergh's reminder was more of a conservation effort to get people to freeze their jeans to stretch out the time between washes.
