This is just sexy, convenient, practical and classy.

I like the design and functionality so you don’t have to carry a wallet AND a phone. Its just in one well designed package. Great for going out with only the essentials on weekends when you don’t want too many clumpy things in your pockets.

Ticket price on one of these: You’re looking at about EUR$45 + shipping

The specs are below;

» Phone is cushioned between two layers of felt
» Snug leather pocket holds up to 2 credit cards
» Slide your phone out by squeezing the bottom
» Asphalt grey 100% wool felt
» Hazelnut brown 100% vegetable tanned leather
» Also fits Blackberry Bold 9700 and Curve 8900

This product was made using leather that has been tanned with natural vegetable dyes. Various textures and irregularities in colour and shade add value to the appearance and make every single piece of leather unique.

When you’re making clothes for real guys, you want to model them on real guys, right? In which case, there’s really no better man to shoot them than Scott Schuman, better known to millions of American GQ readers as The Sartorialist. In case you’ve been living in the middle of a fashion desert (not hard, perhaps, in this vast land), Schuman’s schtick is finding guys on the streets and snapping them in their own stylish gear. He then publishes the shots in US GQ and on his website (thesartorialist.blogspot.com).

For the launch of the Saba Denim collection, he’s applied his fashion-conscious eye to the streets and laneways of Melbourne, the label’s hometown, where there’s no shortage of real guys with real style. The only difference here is that he’s teamed their own gear with Saba jeans, creating looks that range from quirkily cool to suavely sophisticated.

At Saba Denim, the white jean is definitely making a comeback in 2009, accompanying the staple black, black and black. Nothing too risky in terms of cut and finish, but like a lot of ranges, this one is going back to basics, priced affordably and minimally branded to slip into the rest of your wardrobe

Who for: Stylemeisters unafraid to mix chain store with designer.

Where for: The street. Where else?

The Hugging Salt & Pepper shakers are designed by Alberto Mantilla they are sentimental Salt & Pepper shakers locked in embrace to connote love and affection. That might sound a bit gay, but seriously, I think they’re cool.

I saw these in a market (most likely imitations) in Penang, Malaysia and bought a few for presents when I got back.
