1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica SWB Cabriolet: $7,645,000
Sold at auction this week (via rmacutions), this 1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica SWB Cabriolet went for an astounding $7,645,000. This is one of the finest automobiles ever built, and without question it is my dream car. This unfathomable sale was part of an auction that saw a total of 78 cars sold for a mind-boggling $53.9 MILLION. Just let that sink in for a second.
Jalopnik had a write up on the highlights from the auction (biggest sales, etc), but you can also click over to the auction website and check out the cars that were on the auction block and just what makes them so valuable.
Dynomighty Men’s Us Flag Mighty Wallet
Have you ever in your life seen such a beautiful goddamn wallet? That’s a rhetorical question because obviously the answer is ‘no’. Now let me tell you the price of the greatest wallet ever made: $13.62.
For less than fourteen bucks you can old the stars and stripes and house your legal US tender inside the flag that represents our nation’s glory. I’m sitting here wondering why you’re still reading and haven’t stopped what you’re doing and bought five of these wallets yet. Buy one for yourself, your roommate, your best friend, your dad, everyone you know. BUY IT NOW on Amazon for only $13.62.

Ball and Buck’s ‘The Harrington Jacket’
I’ve included offerings from ‘Ball and Buck‘ a few times here in the past, mainly because I think they’re a badass company and I’m on board with the fact that they’re pumping out American made products for the bros of America. The ‘Ball and Buck’ Harrington Jacket is a lighter jacket designed for Spring, Fall, and even parts of Summer (depending upon where you live), and the look + feel of the jacket is designed to bring out your “inner Steve McQueen” while maintaining a rugged outdoors look. I actually included this in my ‘Things We Want’ gear guide a few weeks ago, but have since then been able to get my hands on one of these and wear it about town. So I can officially vouch that this jacket is worthy every hard-earned dollar you’ll spend on it, and the fact that it’s American-made should be enough of a selling point for you to pull the trigger.
You can PURCHASE THE JACKET HERE NOW for $398, and while I know that’s not cheap, you have to consider this his water-resistant jacket that you can wear year-round both fashionably and functionally, and it’s made right here in the state of New York. You’ll be buying only the finest quality and style if you choose to purchase the Harrington Jacket, which comes in both Navy and Khaki.
Star Wars Chewbacca (Wookie) Beer Can Koozie
With the trailer dropping recently and all the ‘Star Wars’ news the levels of fandom are higher than they’ve been in decades. This Chewbacca beer koozie ($8 over on Geekologie) immediately caught my attention earlier in the week and I’ve been craving one ever since. It’s hard for a koozie to be memorable, or really stand out, but this wookie koozie is going to make waves this Summer in Phish lots throughout the northeast as dirty hippies drink micro-brews from cans kept cool inside this wookie coozie. (Pre-order from Entertainment Earth: available July, 2015)
Foxnovo Multifunction Pipe Lighter + Pipe Tools
I’ve been having quite the renaissance lately with cigars. There was a period of my life after college where I cut out smoking any form of tobacco, not cigars, not pipes or hookah. But I’ve come back around to cigars (and the occasional corncob pipe) in the past few years thanks to bachelor parties, weddings, friends getting pregnant, etc., and I’ve come to appreciate the value of a good lighter. The Foxnovo pipe lighter’s insanely versatile, and for any of you smokers with a need for slick lighter that won’t break the bank then this one’s for you: Buy it NOW for only $8.80.
Kershaw Shuffle Multi-Function Tool Knife (White)
I literally just bought this Kershaw folding multi-tool knife before writing out this sentence. This folding knife (that doubles as a multi-tool) is the PERFECT size to fit in your pocket for Summer fishing and hiking trip (BUY IT NOW: $17.48). I’m headed out into The Adirondack’s later this weekend to catch some trout and see what else I can rustle up and suddenly realized my pocket folding-knife was confiscated by airport security last time I was flying, and had forgotten that it was in my backpack.
When I realized I needed an every day carry knife I came across this extremely practical and affordable knife from Kershaw, and just pulled the trigger. So stop what you’re doing and joint me buy buying this blade for only seventeen bucks on Amazon: BUY IT NOW, $17.48.
This Bro’s ‘Wall of Knives’
I came across this gallery over on Reddit when some girl shared a handful of pictures (seen above) showing off her boyfriend’s wall of knives. Needless to say I was stopped in my tracks, because this is one of the most unique things I’ve ever seen. Not only would you never see a display this incredible in an actual knife shop, but you probably wouldn’t even see a display this amazing in a knife museum (if such a thing even exists)!
What’s astounding is that this bro has only been collecting knives since 2011 and has already been able to amass a collection this extensive. But what’s even more astounding than that is the girlfriend’s response to see this knife collection. Instead of immediately panicking at the thought that she might be dating a serial killer, her exact words upon being asked how she reacted were: “I didn’t think anything. I just took my pants off ;)”. If you have any questions about this ‘Wall of Knives’ you could pop on over to the Reddit thread and drop your queries in there.
The Ultimate ‘Dos Equis’ Bar
This year for our BroBible Cinco de Mayo party the bros over at Dos Equis sent us these real-life sized cardboard cutouts of the ‘Most Interesting Man in the World’, they sent us that bar above (which I built myself, by hand), and they sent an unfathomable amount of beer for us to crush while trying to bash out Nipyata piñata. Below you can see editor Matt Keohan hitting the crap out of our piñata and taking it out in one swing:
So why am I including something we already have in the ‘Things We Want‘ gear guide? Because every day should be that awesome. If every day was filled with bottomless Dos Equis lager and amber, and the smashing of piñatas, then the world would be a MUCH better place. Another reason I included Dos Equis in the ‘Things We Want’ gear guide this week is because Cinco de Mayo was a wonderful reminder of how Dos Equis is my favorite Mexican beer, and how I should be drinking a lot more of it going into the Summer. We’ve also go those life-sized versions of the ‘Most Interesting Man in the World’ still standing in our office, so if any of you bros can make me laugh my ass off in the comments down below I’ll be happy to send you one of the 2, but be warned: I don’t laugh easily.
Keychain Flashlight – 11 Piece Mini Multi Tool Survival Gadget
Is that not the greatest keychain you’ve ever seen (Buy it NOW: $7.99)? There’s just so much going on with this I don’t even know where to begin, which is precisely how I prefer my multi-tools (and keychains) to be. Why carry a keychain that’s simply for decoration when you can have this this multi-tool that costs less than ten bucks: BUY IT NOW on Amazon for only $7.99.
