To quote Madonna (something I’m not particularly fond of), “We are living in a material world.” To help you figure out which of the millions of material goods swirling around us is worth spending your hard-earned cash on, we have put together The Want List, consisting of the items we really love this week.
JOYRICH X PLAYBOY RUGBY SHIRT
You need a rugby shirt this spring. It’s the perfect, not-too-stuffy, not-too-casual top as the weather starts to warm up. And they don’t get much better than this collaboration between Playboy and streetwear brand Joyrich. Inspired by rugby shirts that were popular in the 80s and 90s, the bold top features the Playboy logo and Bunny on the chest and the Joyrich logo on the collar.
FENDER CUSTOM SHOP 30TH ANNIVERSARY GUITARS
From $5,450, fendercustomshop.com
The Fender Custom Shop is known to guitar players around the world as the “dream factory.” It’s where players like Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughn had their Stratocasters made. In honor of the Custom Shop’s 30th anniversary, Fender had the eight original guitar builders design their own creation with no restrictions. The instruments, including Strats, Telecasters, and Jazzmasters, each have their own unique appeal and feature distinct woods and details.
Apple founder Steve Jobs was notoriously fickle about the items that he allowed to grace his presence. So the fact that he deemed the Seiko Chariot watch worthy of adorning his wrist says a lot. It was the timepiece Jobs had on in a famous portrait that appeared on the cover of Time after his death, and it later sold for $42,500. Now Seiko and Nano Universe are bringing back the thin, quartz watch with its minimal dial. The only catch is that it will only be available in Japan.
JOSE CUERVO 222 TEQUILA
Jose Cuervo has been making tequila for a long time. Two hundred twenty-two years to be exact. To celebrate the big 2-2-2, Cuervo linked up with renowned artist Ricardo Cavolo on four unique works for a limited edition series of bottles. The graphic above is a play on tequila’s nickname as “the Devil’s water.” Other bottles pay homage to Jose Cuervo (the person, not the brand) being granted a concession from the King of Spain to make tequila and the brand’s role in music throughout the years.
SEINFELD SET REPLICA
Loyal viewers of Seinfeld have no trouble recalling the details of Jerry’s apartment from memory, from the kitchen on the right of the screen to the office nook on the left. But for those who want more than their memories, there is now a 1:26 scale model of the set from the sitcom. It has more than 100 miniature pieces, including the bike that hung from the back wall by the bathroom. The front door even opens and closes, so mini Kramers can come barging in.
