ICU Eyewear: Form Meets Function

ICU Eyewear: Form Meets Function

I’m a guy lucky enough to have 20/15 vision. I’ve never had any major issues in my life with vision (knock on wood). However, as I approach 30, and as I spend all day at...

The Finest Timepiece: Seiko Astron

This is a sponsored post. Seiko paid me to write this article for their #AstronElite campaign. However, I actually used and lived with this watch, and they let me come up with my own conclusions and opinions. I have to say all this mumbo jumbo for the lawyers and whatnot. Now that we got that...
New Balance 565: The Basic Trainer

New Balance 565: The Basic Trainer

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a sneaker kind of guy–the bright colors, the ultra-casualness, the foamy soles–yeesh. However, there comes a time when a guy needs to worry more about comfort and support than whether those brogues go well with your horn rim glasses. The New Balance 565 series is what I...
Wheelmen & Co. Leather Coasters

Wheelmen & Co. Leather Coasters

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times on here before–choose leather. For pretty much all situations, leather is your best friend, and something that will never go out of style or end up breaking after a few years. Leather only gets better with age, a quality which our modern upgrade-your-phone-every-6-months world...

Top Evening Wear Options for a Stylish Winter

This is a paid sponsored post by Politix. Nobody from Electrogent wrote this article. All content and imagery was specifically made (and is owned) by Politix. Your brain might be telling you that your big warm tracksuit pants, a beanie and your doona are the correct attire for a freezing winter night, but just because...
The August 2014 Playlist

The August 2014 Playlist

Another month, another playlist. This time I tried to spend some more time on it and organize this thing to have some sort of flow or fade to it (from soft to heavy), but we’ll see just how well this develops. Let’s do it. Sima Kim x Ryoge Kotoge are two of the best downtempo...

ASUS PadFone X Review and Giveaway

Disclaimer: this is a sponsored post. AT&T and ASUS sent me a tester device, and paid for 2 months of 4G coverage for the device so I could evaluate it. I was not paid for this review, and nobody from AT&T or ASUS read/edited this review before I published it.  Man, technology is getting pretty...

Chubbies Shorts: ‘Mericas

I’d like to preface this review by pointing out that while the above photo might seem a bit too friendly, this is the tamest photo that Maria would allow. I even put on my America shirt for y’all–but it “doesn’t match,” she says. Pshhhh. America on America always matches. Regardless, I am pretty excited to...
Thomas Dean Dress Shirt Review and Giveaway

Thomas Dean Dress Shirt Review and Giveaway

Thomas Dean & Co has been one of those brands that I’ve seen around for a while in upscale retailers like Nordstrom, but I’ve never really been adventurous enough to venture into the collection. They recently reached out and sent over a couple shirts, which I gave a test run. Here’s how it went: The first...
Ivanabitch Watermelon Vodka: Put it in Lemonade

Ivanabitch Watermelon Vodka: Put it in Lemonade

Watermelon and summertime are two things that will never go out of style. This pairing is perfect in all ways, and the pairing of Ivanabitch watermelon vodka and lemonade is just another iteration of this awesome partnership. What makes this pairing unique is that this vodka smells like watermelon, and has absolutely no harsh vodka/alcohol...
Modern Dionysus: Three Ways to Drink Lemonade

Modern Dionysus: Three Ways to Drink Lemonade

Lemonade is an awesome summer drink, but sometimes you need just a little more. I recently wrote an article for Modern Dionysus about three awesome ways to take your lemonade. Summer is upon us, especially down south in Texas, and that can mean three things: watermelon, barbecue, and lemonade. If you aren’t partaking in these luxuries...
Osmium Mobius Belt

Osmium Mobius Belt

If you don’t know what a Mobius strip (named after August Mobius) is, you should first check it out–it’s worth it. After your mind is sufficiently blown, bring it back in and focus on this Osmium Mobius Belt. Much like the strip, the belt is one solid band (although what belt isn’t?) that connects in...

The July 2014 Playlist

I’m starting a dangerous trend of making playlists with no commentary. Again, my apologies, but here you go. July 2014 playlist. What’s on your July 2014 playlist?
