does another collaboration, and this time it is with Missoni. It might take someone with original style to pull these off, but if you happen to be one of those guys – pat yourself on the back and head to Trés Bien Shop to find this statement sneaker.

Rockmate iPad App
so maybe this isn’t just for guys, but more for music lovers regardless of gender (or age). Either way, it’s too cool not to share. Rockmate is an iPad app that turns your iPad into your own little studio. It’s got two guitars, drums and a keyboard as well as a host of other features that I’m just not qualified to write about, but click on over to Bless This Stuff to learn more.

men’s accessories web shop that’s worth taking a look at. Opumo is stocked with some pretty killer bags, wallets, sunglasses, ties, socks and so much more. Even my hard to impress husband was in awe of the great selection they carry. So if fine menswear is your thing (or even if its not), Opumo is sure to be a great resource.
LEMON BALL Leather Ball, $40
for the guy who has everything. The company, LEMON BALL, was founded by Paul Cunningham. Cunningham is a Hall of Fame researcher and MLB photo editor, so clearly an avid fan. His design stems from the “lemon peel baseball” which has been around for 200 years. All footballs and baseballs are handcrafted in New Jersey. Well crafted and a cool piece for the bookshelf. Another good one found on Etsy.
The Penny Swim Stripe Pocket Tee
pieces for the guys at Penny Stock Clothing. Any of the tanks, tees or comfy pants they offer would make nice companions to espadrilles or sneakers. Styles pretty much any guy can wear, and the prices are just right.
