3 days till Christmas…a gift for the “Global Citizen”

3 days till Christmas…a gift for the “Global Citizen”

Posted by on Dec 22, 2014 in Lifestyle | 0 comments

DECADES ago, a man named Garry Davis provocatively renounced his American citizenship and declared himself a citizen of the world. Now, Tumi, which sells luxury suitcases, bags and other products for travelers, is proclaiming the arrival of the “global citizen.” Travel is a way of life, and this Christmas Revolucion is here to help you fuel that aspiration. Tumi was founded by American Entrepreneur Charlie Clifford, a former Peace Corp volunteer who eventually started importing bags from South America in 1975. In the mid 80’s Tumi embarked on its journey of innovation by designing a revolutionary carry on garment bag and soft brief-case, using it’s patented ballistic nylon. In the early 90’s Tumi entered the European market and introduced a collection of men’s leather wallets and agendas. Then, during the mid-90’s Tumi designed wheel-a-way, Tri-fold Garment bag, and introduces the Snap Hook with a Swivel Platform (for luggage) before opening up 2 stores in Santa Monica, CA and New York City closer to the millennium. Always innovating, Tumi launched TUMI Tracer® product identification and recovery program.  This is available on their core luggage and business collections and helps to reunite Tumi customers with their lost or stolen bag. The patented Omega Closure System® ensures that your locks will last and are of excellent quality. Following this, in 2005 Tumi launched their award winning electronic travel accessories. Although Tumi is widely known for their innovative, top-of-the-line luggage, their extended collection of wallets, travel essentials, key fobs, agendas, and  iPhone 6  & iPad cases are also designed with the same care and attention. The majority of Tumi wallets are hand-crafted using full-grain leather with the exception of the Alpha collection, that uses Tumi’s signature ballistic nylon fabric, which is also used for the iPhone 6 case. The Tumi key fobs are designed using quality stainless steel. The Alpha Collection features a push mechanism that releases the valet portion of the fob, while the Slim Monogram Collections features a leather inlay that can be monogrammed, and a polished stainless steel finish on the other side. So why Tumi? Not only has this brand won awards for its innovative and functional collections, the company will not allow any product onto the market until each and every item has passed a combination of 30 unique tests. Their “real life lab” is inspired by people, which is why they take each product out into the real world to test out every possible scenario and will reject anything that isn’t functional and up to their extensive standards. Tumi strives to make things easier for their customers by overcoming several challenges: Introduction of T-Pass. Designed to cut down “your time in line” at airport security. With T-Pass you don’t need to take your laptop out of your bag. This technology allows you to place your bag through scanners without damaging your laptop. Tumi ID lock. Designed to prevent Identity Theft from thieves scanning...

A complete must have! If you’re stuck on what to buy your man this Christmas just take a look at his watch collection and figure out what he doesn’t have already. Or an even better idea…is his vast collection taking up space that could be yours? Perhaps he needs a place to keep all his precious watches? Wolf designs specialize in custom clock making, beautifully crafted jewelry boxes and contemporary and stylish watch boxes with the added watch rotating mechanism, that will instinctively wind all types of automatic watches. Plus, the designs are so contemporary and showcases a glass window so now both the Wolf Watch Winder and the watches itself can proudly be displayed. The company has been around for 180 years and is a business that has been passed down from generation to generation. Always striving to become more and more innovative. Wolf designs patented rotation mechanism is extraordinary. The rotation mechanism inside simulates wrist action, is pre-programmable and capable of completing 300 to 1200 TPD (turns per day) clockwise, counter-clockwise and bi-directional. All of the Wolf Winders are custom made with wood and are also designed with a fitted lock. There are many models ranging from simple to complex. As I mentioned the programming capabilities of this amazing design is outstanding. This is the perfect Christmas gift for your beloved man.

5 days till Christmas…Must have accessories for the Cigar Connoisseur

5 days till Christmas…Must have accessories for the Cigar Connoisseur

Posted by on Dec 20, 2014 in Lifestyle | 0 comments

If you read my blog post two days ago you have an understanding of the hard work and great length of time it takes to harvest the tobacco leaves that make up your fine cigars. The growth cycle alone takes 9 months! As a general rule anything that requires that much effort to make requires an equal amount of effort to maintain. Today I’m going to go over the essential tools you need to help you on your journey of becoming a cigar connoisseur. Firstly, you will definitely need a cutter! Whether it’s a V-cut, punch cut or guillotine cut; if you want to smoke that cigar you’ll have to cut it. Cutters can range in price from $5 to hundreds of dollars. I would say that a reasonable price for a cutter, that will be durable and of good quality, should range between $40 and $90. With that being said there is nothing wrong with an inexpensive cutter however, they will need to be replaced more often as the blades, especially for guillotine cutters, will start to dull. A great brand for cutters is Colibri. Not only do these cutters have a great warranty but also, these cutters are a great investment if you’re looking for quality and durability. Now that you’ve got that cigar cut you’ve got to light it! Cedar matches work well to light up the cigars but on a windy day can be a pain. A wind-resistant torch lighter is the way to go.  I find that torch lighters also work better when you are “toasting” the bottom end of the cigar, before simultaneously puffing and lighting it. Lighters can be such a personal choice. Plus there are many different styles, colors, features, size and weights to choose from. As with the cutters, lighters do range in price with some of the most expensive lighters on the market, designed by Dunhill and DuPont. Again for a mid-range lighter I would go for either the Colibri or for something more traditional yet stylish, I would definitely choose Cryril Brizard. So you’ve cut and lit your cigar and are puffing away, enjoying all the aromas and flavours of that fine cigar, but where are you going to ash it? As you know cigars aren’t smoked like cigarettes. For most we take a few puffs and place our cigar down to rest in between. A cigar ashtray is designed with deep grooves, which allow this. Plus you can’t just place your fine cigar in any old ashtray. The grooves or stands on an ashtray are specially designed to have a sturdy hold on your cigars plus the grooves are made large enough to embrace any ring gauge. At some social cigar settings, most often, the cigar ashtray is the hot topic of the evening, especially if it bears the brand of your favourite cigar! Now unless you’ve seriously...
