With the need to keep up appearances in this modern age of video conferencing, while salons and barbershops out of commission, there’s a good chance you might start to resemble Tom Hanks in the acclaimed film Castaway. Look good and maintain a level of professionalism while working from home-- everyday still counts, and more.

When it was first put into production, investors and studios alike didn’t have much faith that Star Wars would be a success. Now, over 40 years and 9 blockbuster films later, there’s no denying the vast and near-ubiquitous impact of this sci-fi franchise. And while much of that can be credited to its family-friendly, relatable storylines, much of its success is undoubtedly the product of the series’ iconography. From the black-clad Darth Vader to the vibrant-yet-deadly lightsabers and everything in-between, there are so many recognizable designs to come out of these movies. In fact, this week’s everyday carry pocket dump was inspired by one of their most iconic characters — the Stormtrooper. The anonymous soldiers of the Empire, Imperial Stormtroopers boast an intimidating and timeless vis...

Take command of the Halcyon Starcruiser, no prior flight experience necessary. Walt Disney World is currently seeking an Admiral (that's GM in Earth-speak) to run its upcoming Star Wars hotel. While previous starship experience isn't a must, they are looking for someone with 10+ years of hospitality leadership, as well as outstanding team-building, communication, and creative skills. Qualified beings can apply via the DisneyCareers website — likely a front to avoid any First Order entanglements.

If you want an example from popular media that exemplifies just how important everyday carry gear might be, you can’t go wrong with ’80s action blockbuster Die Hard. And that’s because, in the context of the film, John McClane (Bruce Willis) is left to defend Nakatomi Plaza from German terrorists with nothing but the items he has in his pockets. If you’ve seen the flick, you know he makes do with what little he has, but we’d like to think that, we’re he a little more prepared, he might have a loadout that looks something like the everyday carry gear in this week’s pocket dump. Granted, the chances are slim that you’ll ever need to use your EDC arsenal to fend off violent international criminals. But you’ll be more apt to deal with just about any situation, even the extreme ones, as long as...

It's not easy to balance throwback style with modern features, but that rare combo is something James Bond and Vuarnet consistently pull off. Those shared traits collide in the Edge 1613 sunglasses, featuring a matte black frame and dark grey polar lenses and a subtle acetate rim, identical to ones Daniel Craig wears in the upcoming Bond film: No Time To Die, and occasionally the ones he wears in real life. The shades also have mineral glass to provide the clearest vision and maximum protection against blinding glares while increasing contrast when visibility is low. The medium-sized glasses add Frey & Winkler nose pads for comfort and support as well as subtle and thin side "blinders" to further reduce sunlight on the periphery of your vision for a clearer view.

Of all the comic book heroes out there, Batman is probably most well known as the one with all the coolest gadgets. But, while the Dark Knight definitely gets top billing, we’re firm believers that his alter-ego, Bruce Wayne, doesn’t get enough credit. Sure, he’s not the one fighting crime and saving the world, but he’s still a billionaire playboy supergenius who runs one of the most successful companies in the entire DC universe. It helps, too, that he has impeccable style and taste — especially in Christopher Nolan’s adaptations. In fact, it was with Bruce Wayne in mind (as well as Batman’s signature black-and-blue colorway) that we put together the following everyday carry loadout. Obviously, it’s hard to say what Wayne would carry in his pockets, being that he’s a fictional character,...

Nintendo of Canada and Hotel X Toronto have teamed up to give Nintendo fans the ultimate “night in” with the Nintendo Switch video game system. From March 11 to 26, the luxury hotel’s Presidential Suite will be transformed into the “Nintendo Switch Suite” - an immersive, bookable suite designed for social gaming with friends.

In addition to being outfitted with a number of Nintendo “touches”, the entire space is set up for gameplay - with Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite systems at the ready.

Ultimate to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to the latest indies.

“We’re taking games night to the next level,” said Dom Gross, Gener...

We knew for a while that Christopher Nolan’s next film would be called Tenet, and we knew who was on board to star in it, but outside the fact that the story would have something to do with international espionage, we knew little else. We finally got the first trailer for it in mid-December, and though it’s cryptic enough that we still kind of don’t know what’s going on, we do know that John David Washington will play some sort of agent who is able to experience time both forwards and backwards, sometimes simultaneously…? We think…?

Scheduled for a June 2021 release, Matt Reeves' The Batman is yet another reboot for the Caped Crusader. Debate the merits of casting Robert Pattinson all you want, but what's not debatable is the muscle car roots of the latest take on The Batmobile. From these three shots, shared by Reeves on his Twitter account, we can see the car has a wide stance, reinforcements at the rear on either side of the open engine, and what appears to be some analog gauges alongside a screen and switches. Hopefully, it can match the pivotal role of the Tumbler in Nolan's trilogy of films.

On a recent press tour across Canada, I shared a number of great gifts for men (and women) this holiday season. Tis the season to really get what you want!
