All you need to know is the bags are pretty fucking cool and well made. This shit is on point.

There are few shoes that have been a staple in my wardrobe since I was 5 years old – classic black Chucks, some white Stan Smiths and a variety of plain or printed Vans Authentic Slip-Ons. Now Vans have stepped up their game with a series of new finishes for the classic Slip-Ons; the upgraded materials include suede, leather and wool, utilized across a range of six colorways.
Available soon at Vans stockists. And they are a steal at around $50.

The original Racquet Club Cocktail called for pink gin but what exactly is pink gin? Simply, gin with a dash of Angostura bitters stirred through. The first use of pink gin is widely attributed to the Royal Navy who mixed the bitters with gin to take the edge off and apparently ease sea sickness. While I can’t guarantee that this one will ease your stomach, I can guarantee that is the perfect update to a classic martini.
