Paul-Evans-Shoes-Gear-Patrol Paul Evans Shoes
Many brands have proven that the Internet-based, direct-to-consumer market is a thriving place, popular because it provides consumers with high end products that aren’t marked up to cover brick-and-mortar store costs. Paul Evans believes that type of consumer should be literally well-heeled while saving a few bucks on what would normally be a very expensive endeavor. Their three styles — The Brando, The Cagney and The Grant — are as classy and elegant as their namesakes, and in the realm of French calfskin designer shoes, you’ll be hard pressed to beat their prices. $350

Stone-Crime-and-Punishment-Gear-Patrol Stone Brewing Co. Crime And Punishment
These guys sure do think highly of themselves, the arrogant bastards. We suppose it’s deserved, especially after the release of these two brews. Crime was created when a blend of three established Stone Brewing Co. beers — together called Lukcy Bastartd [sic] Ale — were combined and then mixed with a mixed batch of fresh peppers, from mild to roaring hot. Punishment, a bitter, brutal beer, was infused with those same spicy scoundrels. Perfect for your next Brothers Karamazov party. arrogantbastard.com
