Well Played: The Neiman Marcus Group’s Nick Wooster is an incredibly well-dressed man. Also, a big fan of the tie bar. [Sartorially Inclined]

This Can’t be Twitter, Because There is No True Twitter: Appparently, tweeting feels like love from a hormonal perspective. Which explains why Andy Rooney doesn’t like it. [TechCrunch]

Oaky Undertones


We love glass and chrome, but now it’s spring, and time for something a little warmer.

These wooden clocks from Neiman Marcus caught our eye for their antique, tropical flavor. Setting off the chestnut finish with brass, the overall effect is decidedly low-tech—which may be just right for a wall clock. It looks as if it could be fashioned by hand, which has an appeal all its own. The only drawback is that the more handy design-heads may decide they’d like to try.

DIYers aside, the low-tech look may be growing into its own as a style. With flatscreen TVs, stainless steel kitchens and synthetic tile becoming increasingly common as unintentional design statements, we may need something to balance things out.

Crystal Ship


The 21st century has really fallen behind in the portable bar department. In the old days, a self-respecting gentleman wouldn’t dream of setting off on a voyage without something in reserve. And in the heyday of the trunk, there was a specific solution at hand.

Stocking more than twenty bottles of your choosing and a healthy selection of Irish crystal, this rosewood trunk is an open invitation to turn your spring picnic into a police-baiting outdoor hootenanny. Of course, luggage has always had its own unique style, but there’s nothing wrong with adding a little function into the mix.

Charlie Chaplin would be proud.
