2015 Indian Scout Motorcycle

By on Aug 14, 2014

The Indian motorcycle name returns with the 2015 Indian Scout. This is the first all-new revision in over seventy years, with this one incorporating the model’s trademark “rigid” triangular shape and a cast aluminum frame, the lightest in its class. It features a solo tan leather bucket seat sitting 25 inches off the ground, a 61.5-inch wheelbase and a 31-degree lean angle. This will be one of the more sportier cruiser-style bikes out there and the 1133cc V-twin engine delivers the performance. Look for the 2015 Indian Scout to be available later this year in black, red, matte grey and matte black with an MSRP of $10,999...

How To Improve Your Style… For Free!

By on Aug 12, 2014

1. Learn How To Sew Every guy should know how to make little fixes with a needle and thread, like replacing lost buttons or patching holes. A little effort to learn will pay off big time by adding some unique character to your clothes. Your fixes don’t have to be perfect—and that actually makes them cooler, and a bit more personal. 2. Button Swaps = A Brand New Look Changing small details, like your buttons, make a big difference on any garment. Breathe new life into a black blazer by swapping in nautical-inspired gold buttons from that navy one in the back of your closet or give a tired button-down an upgrade with mother-of-pearl ones off a shirt that doesn’t fit (or you wouldn’t dare wear) anymore. You can even switch out buttons on heavy-duty outerwear like peacoats and topcoats to refresh them come winter—it’s like buying a totally new coat that’s...

A SUMMER HAT-TRICK – THE PANAMA HAT

By on Aug 11, 2014

As you saw from my previous post #wiwt: The Italian Wedding, the Panama hat is a must wear for this summer. It had a brief vacation, but it’s back! As Wikipedia put it, a Panama hat (toquilla straw hat) is a traditional brimmed straw hat of Ecuadorian origin. Traditionally, hats were made from the plaited leaves of the Carludovica palmata plant, known locally as the toquilla palm or jipijapa palm. Panama hats are light-colored, lightweight, and breathable, and often worn as accessories to summer-weight suits, such as those made of linen or silk. Beginning around the turn of the 20th century, panamas began to be associated with the seaside and tropical locales. Straw hats woven in Ecuador, like many other 19th and early 20th century South American goods, were shipped first to the Isthmus of Panama before sailing for their destinations in Asia, the rest of the Americas and Europe,...

The New Family Car.. The Porsche Macan

By on Aug 10, 2014

There will be a point in your life, maybe soon, where you’ll trade in your bitchin’ bachelor ride for a crossover, the auto-industry term for all those mini SUVs now swarming the streets. Your brain will congratulate you on your practicality, while your testicles—obsolesced in the face of such a bland vehicle—will slowly ascend into your torso, entering a period of hibernation. But they might stick around if it’s the new Porsche Macan you’re driving. There’s a reason why crossovers are the fastest-growing vehicle category right now, sales-wise: They’re safe and sized just right for carrying kids and Ikea furniture, with none of the road-hogging selfishness of a full-size SUV or the Irish-Catholic-family insinuations of a minivan. They’re also boring. No one envies the owner of a crossover. Which is what makes the Macan kind of miraculous....

#wiwt: The Watergang Wedding

From Elba to Watergang, this time a wedding of a close friend and co-editor of Ajanaku, Nick Plomp! A great day that not only was memorable, but saw all guests dressed to impress. A deconstructed double-breasted jacket, supported by a butterfly bow-tie was my choice for this occasion. Interested in any of the pieces?
