I’m so thrilled to introduce a new segment on Covetous Creatures. This one is for the gentlemen, written by my partner and other half, the notorious Gregor. Enjoy!

Without further ado…
The Outsiders is one of those books that I keep going back to. I re-read it every couple of years and the influence is hard to shake. I have images of greasers, rumbles, drive-in theaters and plain white t’s stuck in my head for weeks. I miss that feeling of thinking you were a rebel at an age that being a rebel wasn’t possible. The days when stealing hood ornaments and smoking on the roofs of parking lots made you king among disheveled, shaggy haired boys.
Glass Flask from Retroburgh on Etsy, $14.99
I love this for two reasons. The flask itself is made of glass, one. Two, the leather holster looks as if it should reek of dusty desert road trips and sailors at a tattoo shop.
High West Rendezvous Rye Whiskey at K&L Wines, $47.99
My usual whiskey of choice is Gentleman’s Jack but this one caught my eye. Distilled in Park City, Utah, a location I’ve been known to frequent, this gorgeous Rye Whiskey is perfect for making a classic Manhattan.

My current pic obsession.
Poe’s Tobacco Parfum by Tokyomilk on Amazon, $28
This was one of those items that Holly and I find sometimes and both want equally. I won this one. The scent is manly without being over powering.
Comb and Comb Case by Billykirk for Ace Hotel, contact for pricing
The perfect rebel always has perfect hair. Pick this up in the Lobby of the Ace Hotel in New York and then head over to The Breslin for a Scotch Egg and what Time Out New York has just named best grilled cheese in the city.
Portland General Store Whiskey Wet Shave Soap at Black Bird Ballard, $10
I’ll be honest and say I haven’t tried this line, but I am a sucker for packaging. This is an example of packaging that gives a story and background that brings you in.
Portland General Store Whiskey Aftershave Splash at Black Bird Ballard, $12
Whiskey has a calming soothing smell that will always bring comfort to those it has embraced. And seriously…I’m not a major alcoholic…just minor.
