Sperry Topsiders – For the Permanently Vacating

Blood not included - but encouraged

Blood not included - but encouraged

Sperrys. Why worry about summer fashion for 2009, with 2010 right around the corner and nothing but the worst economic recession in 80 years looming in between? Besides, when it comes to the best men’s shoes, always go for the classics. Most men’s formal shoes can be used for a lifetime: you take care of them, you resole them, you only wear them when appropriate. Spending $300 on a pair of formal black cap toes or brown leather oxfords makes sense if you take care of them. They’re an investment.

On the other hand, your casual shoes can take a real beating: you wear them out dranking at night, trudge around the grass for outdoor summer events during the day, take them to the beach, toss them into weekend bags, and on and on.  Don’t let this discourage you. Your fashion summer is right around the corner, and you can do it for a reasonable price. (Read on …)

Handsome Reommends: the 500GB Passport External Drive. Oddly enough/because of the increasing amount of data we carry around, external drives are becoming a necessary Handsome accessory. We recommend this Western Digital harddrive becuase of its reasonable price and good experience we’ve had with this particular usb harddrive and an older version that’s been powering our jams for nearly 3 years without complaint. Who knows if it’s the best external harddrive out there – it’s been working for us and that should be Handsome enough for your significantly less-good-looking lives.

Because of the prevalance of toting around digital media and falling prices, Dirty Handsome predicts that the mac external drives will be the breakout Christmas gift of 2008. (Read on …)
