Context x Schott – Tucked in the capital of Wisconsin is a little menswear store by the name of Context. In the land of milk and cheese not many care about artisan denim or premium leather, but Context has crafted a following with their selection of brands. Recently Context got in touch with Schott to re-create the Perfecto jacket. Instead of the usual leather hide Context opted for premium Chromexel horsehide from the famed Horween Tannery. The result of bringing two all-American brands on board this project is an exquisite leather jacket; ready for your latest adventure. Only 60 pieces were produced for this special project, and each Perfecto will retail for $990.
Razer Blade 2014 – The Razer brand is relatively unknown outside the circle of video gamers who are used to programming hot keys onto their 15 button mouse, or their mechanical keyboards. But, Razer does something that all brands should strive to do. They are constantly looking to improve on their product. The Blade is their flagship gaming laptop that debuted in 2013, and in one year they have updated the machine three times. Not every market concerned was addressed, but the company paid careful attention to key aspects their customers wanted. Update are expensive, and big companies like Apple just don’t do that sort of thing. But, Razer did and their latest iteration comes a half year after they just updated the graphics card. The new 2014 Blade comes with an ultra sharp screen that can display a resolution of 3200 x 1800; we’re used to about 1000 pixels and this 14 inch screen crams three times as much more. Ultra sharp graphics and fast frame rates are necessary in the gaming world; Razer took note and delivered.
