Ultimate Gentleman: SXSW, PonoMusic & Brooklyn

By Playboy.com

<p>Why you need to go to SXSW, which Brooklyn artisan foods you should be eating and more.</p>

Well this one is a no-brainer. If you can catch the action down in Austin, Texas at this year’s SXSW do so immediately. You’ll probably have one hell of a time finding accommodations but with all of the parties going on we’re sure you could pull an all-nighter or two. Sleeping is for suckers anyway. While you’re there, we suggest heading to the world premiere of the Harmontown documentary on March 9 at 9:30 PM. Hit the link for more details: Harmontown.com.

We’ve got a soft spot for subscription boxes, but shelling out $100 a month for curated foods or clothing just doesn’t fit everyone’s budget. If you feel like splurging on your inner foodie, we suggest buying this awesome set of Brooklyn gourmet goodies by With Love, From Brooklyn. They go out of their way to find the best artisan treats from the area and develop everything from killer gift sets to cheeky home wear. Find it all on WithLoveFromBrooklyn.com.

Neil Young kicked off SXSW music with not only a stellar keynote but with the announcement of his latest venture, the PonoMusic Player. Developed to bring you the best listening experience, “PonoMusic is an end-to-end ecosystem for music lovers to get access to and enjoy their favorite music exactly as the artist created it, at the recording resolution they chose in the studio.” While it’s still looking for contributors for Kickstarter, they’re well beyond their goal of $800,000. Get your own PhonoPlayer on PonoMusic.com.

A good shave shouldn’t be spared when you’re on the road. That’s why Imperial has developed the Field Shave kit. Based on an old school military field shaving kit, it has everything to bring your routine to whatever hotel, campsite or cabin you may find yourself living out of. The kit touts that it’s “Field-tested and barber approved,” and includes pre-shave oil, after-shave, shave soap puck and canister, travel shave brush and a pocket-sized field note to jot down whatever manly thought that may cross your mind. Get yours on ImperialBarberProducts.com.

We’ve been Mophie enthusiasts since the beginning so when we heard that they were developing a case that would both prolong battery life and our storage for the iPhone we were thrilled. Yes the Mophie Space Pack is a bit clunky, but it’s not going to keep you from being able to carry your phone in your pocket, or slipping it into your laptop case. Coming in white and black the case was specifically made for the iPhone 5s/5. For $150 the case comes with a one year warranty and ships within 1-2 business days. Buy one on Mophie.com.
