The Perfect...Carve

The Great Beauties of History Snowboard by YES.

Finally, a board for a grown man.  After the success of the Great Dudes of History snowboards by YES, the company has flipped the switch by giving us Great Beauties of History.  The boards are an asymmetrical twin shape, use a Camrock profile, have one of the firmest flexes in the range and include a new nameless technology to increase grip.  If you want to go a bit more controversial (and give back to charity) try their Great Boobs of History, with proceeds going to help breast cancer survivors experience the life-changing effects of snowboarding through Retreat Yourself camps in Colorado.  $500 or at these global dealers

The Perfect...Slipper

The Fog Linen Work Slipper

On a recent trip east I happened to leave my favorite new slippers behind...and I haven't been the same since.  Made of durable linen and leather from Lithuania, these slip-ons are not only comfortable but keep my tootsies warm as the harsh winter approaches.  Did I mention how subtle they are?  To order on-line visit  or get them at fine stores in Gastown, Vancouver
