    Is underwear a stupid gift to give dad on Father’s Day? The Answer is …

    Is underwear a stupid gift to give dad on Father’s Day? According to the makers of SwampButt Underwear it is not. In addition to their obvious bias, making underwear for men, the plain fact is that many men will not buy underwear for themselves.

    This is real, I want to take my family for example. My mother in law is in charge of the underwear for every male members in the family. And yes, she is the only female before both of her sons got married. Even now, my husband and his brother still get underwear present at every Christmas.

    • Unreliable Sources

    Relying instead on their wives or girlfriends to keep them supplied. This approach is not conducive to a reliable set of undergarments for the male populace as the women in their lives tend to come and go (mostly go). “A man will literally walk right out of his worn, stained, droopy, drawers before admitting he might need something new,” said fashionista, social commentator, and SwampButt Underwear spokesman Nick Heraldson. “So before he has to tie his sad undershorts in place with a rope or piece of electrical cord, please order him some new SwampButt Underwear.”

    • Origin of Father’s Day

    According to Google (www.google.com) Father’s Day was founded in Spokane, Washington at the YMCA in 1910 by a woman, Sonora Smart Dodd, who was born in Arkansas. Its first celebration was in the Spokane YMCA on June 19, 1910. Her father, the Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart, was a single parent who raised his six children there. “You have to admire a man who survived war and single parenthood, especially before indoor plumbing was universal,” said amateur historian and SwampButt Underwear spokesman Nick Heraldson. Dodd’s attention strayed to art and art school after the initial celebrations of Father’s Day. In the 1930’s Dodd finished with art school and returned to Spokane where she again promoted the celebration of Father’s Day.

    • Counterpoint to Mother’s Day                                                                                              

    Given that Dodd and her five siblings were raised by their widowed father it made sense to her that fathers were due some recognition. With the help of businesses that would profit from Father’s Day, (the manufacturers of ties, tobacco pipes, crudely worded t-shirt makers, golf equipment, lawn tools or fishing gear, and any traditional present to fathers) Dodd and her day for dads was set.  In 1938, Dodd had the help of ‘The Father’s Day Council’, founded by the New York Associated Men’s Wear Retailers to consolidate and systematize the commercial promotion of Father’s Day. The rest is retail history. “It would be cynical for us to speculate that the people who helped Sonora Smart Dodd promote Father’s Day were only interested in making money,” Heraldson said. “So, we will leave that to others who are already cynical about what motivated the original supporters of Father’s Day to continue with their skepticism.”

    • Scheduling to Coincide                                                                                                              

    The U.S. Open golf tournament is scheduled to finish on Father’s Day, as was the 2016 NBA Finals. The FireKeepers Casino 400 NASCAR auto race at Michigan International Speedway is sometimes held on Father’s Day.

    • The pH of Goat Milk is nearly the same as that of human skin, helping to maintain a slightly acid mantle.
    • One of the main structural elements in living cells are lipids. Goat milk lipids are skin-compatible and are easily absorbed to moisturize and nourish our skin. No greasy residue.
    • Goat milk is rich in lactic acid and whey proteins. Lactic acid helps smooth skin by exfoliation while proteins enhance skin’s appearance.
    • Packed with Vitamins A&D and E — the first a powerful anti-oxidant, the second, a supplement for our “sunshine-needs”, and the third, adds moisture.
    • Contains a complex of trace minerals originating from fresh-grazed pastures to help skin naturally maintain its own moisture.

    Goat milk has always been the most acceptable of all milks for people with sensitive digestive systems — and what’s good for the inside is just as good for the outside!

    Urbanista Launches “London” ANC Earphones for Sleek “Sound & Silence” Experience

    Silence the outside world
    or let the sound in
    with Urbanista’s new active noise cancelling earphones

    Urbanista, the Swedish lifestyle audio brand, announces the launch of Urbanista London, an active noise cancelling true wireless earphone, designed to put the listener in control. London is the latest in the brand’s true wireless headphone line-up and lives up to their tagline: “Designed for Life in Motion.” Boasting an in-ear style that combines secure fit and crystal clear, isolated sound with comfort, simplicity, and reliability, Urbanista London allows listeners to either completely block out the outside world or hear their surroundings without interruption to their listening experience.

    Priced at $149 MSRP,
    London is available in four stylish colors
    and boasts full compatibility with iOS, Android and Windows devices.

    A Sound Experience Under Your Control

    Urbanista London is designed to provide the perfect fit and is comfortable for long periods of wear. Sound design for Urbanista London was developed by industry-leading acoustical engineer Axel Grell. “We have worked incredibly hard to perfect and fine-tune the sound of Urbanista London. The tiny details make for an earphone with incredible clarity and natural sound reproduction with ground-shaking bass and smooth highs,” said Grell. “The micro-speakers I have selected are at the acoustical heart of these earphones. Urbanista London boasts a wide frequency range with very low distortion, an important feature especially for an active noise cancelling earphone.”

    Whether you feel like blocking out the noise of a busy morning commute or would like to hear what is around you, Urbanista London puts the listener in control. With the new active noise cancelling (ANC) feature, at the press of a button, users are able to completely switch off the outside world. Listeners can otherwise remain conscious of their surroundings while enjoying a strong audio experience with Ambient Sound Mode. This feature enables listeners to switch to a voice-enhancing mode while listening to music or podcasts, allowing outside sounds in and ensuring the ability to hear any surrounding voices, loud and clear.

    Urbanista believes earphones should be intelligently designed and complement the user’s lifestyle. This is why Urbanista London earbuds have a built-in ear detection technology that is programmed to pause when the sensors detect that one bud has been removed from the listener’s ear. The music will stop playing completely when both earbuds are removed.

    Inspired by the City

    Urbanista London is packed with style and creativity, and its earphones are inspired by the vibrant and busy city. So that listeners can express their personal style, London is available at launch in Midnight Black (black), Rose Gold (pink), White Pearl (white), and Dark Sapphire (blue), and comes with a sleek and slim color-matched charging case. London has an IPX4 waterproof rating and is therefore protected from splashing water from any angle.

    Designed for Life in Motion

    Staying connected is easy with London. The latest in 5.0 Bluetooth connectivity means London is compatible with iOS, Windows or Android devices and allows users to have a voice assistant available at the touch of a button. While on the go, the built-in noise cancelling dual microphone allows users to make or receive stereo phone calls, adjust the volume, play, and stop.

    London provides a playtime of five hours, and with four additional full charges from its case, for a total playtime of 25 hours. The indicator lights let users know when they are out of charge. Users can conveniently charge the earphones in less than one hour on any Qi-certified pad or via the USB Type-C cable, straight out of the box.

    Anders Andreen, CEO of Urbanista, comments:  “London is a truly special product and we are very excited to welcome this model to our true wireless family. The small and ergonomic design provides the perfect fit that looks great, and with the active noise cancelling and ambient sound features, London is perfect for life in motion.”

    Urbanista London will be available online at www.urbanista.com as of May 25 2020.

    Time Concepts Releases New ICON Signature Series Watch Inspired by American Motorcycle Legend, Roland Sands

    With all of this time at home, Dad will be more than ready for a special gift on Father’s Day. I wanted to let you know about a new signature series watch inspired by motorcycle legend, Roland Sands.

    Sands’ namesake watch is meant to reflect his zeal for racing and love for the motorcycling community and would be a great gift idea for Dad…even if he’s not into racing. The watch is rugged, tough, and dependable (just like Dad), crafted with a satin brushed stainless case with screw case back, a scratch resistant mineral crystal, and 100 meters water resistance.  The strap is made of USA-sourced Horween leather,famous for its beauty and durability.

    Latest Icon Series Watch Designed to Exemplify Sands’ Legacy of Racing

    Time Concepts, a watch firm known for making high-quality timepieces at remarkably affordable prices, has officially launched its newest series of watches under the Szanto brand, the Szanto ICON Roland Sands Signature Series.

    Roland Sands is an American motorcycle racer and designer of custom high-performance motorcycles. In his career as a professional motorcycle racer he won the 1998 AMA 250GP National Champion road racer championship, and today is also an award-winning designer of custom performance motorcycles.  As the owner and founder of Roland Sands Designs, a company that sells custom motorcycle parts, he is known for unique designs and has developed a cult following around the world.

    Sands’ namesake watch is meant to reflect his zeal for racing and love for the motorcycling community. His ICON watch was designed with Roland involved in all design details. “The unique watch design is meant to invoke the feeling of instruments on a bike and reflects his individualism, as is seen in his motorcycle creations, and exhibits a very vintage character,” said Time Concepts Founder Barry Cohen. “Roland was instrumental in the overall design of his watch series.  We’re eager to share it with his fans.”

    The watch is rugged, tough, and dependable, crafted with a satin brushed stainless case with screw case back, a scratch resistant mineral crystal, and 100 meters water resistance.  The strap is made of USA-sourced Horween leather, famous for its beauty and durability – it will quickly pick up the look of well-worn motorcycle boots and jackets and take on a vintage patina adding more character the longer it is worn.  The straps feature easy on/off fingernail pull spring pins to allow for strap changes in a matter of seconds. However, the most impressive aspect of the design is raised padded ribs on the strap that emulate the beautiful stitch treatments seen on Roland’s signature jackets that are revered and collected all over the world.

    The Szanto ICON Signature Series are small collections of watches tied to famous individuals who have made their mark in a variety of fields. Time Concepts’ ICONs are masters of their respective crafts and all share an appreciation and affinity for quality timepieces. Other industry leaders in the ICON series include Indy Series and Indy 500 Champion Danny Sullivan, and renowned big-wave surfer, Shane Dorian, both of whom also worked closely with Time Concepts to define, design and develop a timepiece that connects to their respective styles and personalities, all while maintaining the Szanto commitment to excellence. In this way, ICON watches reflect the tastes and interests of the people who inspired them.

    “I’m honored to partner with Time Concepts on the design and introduction of the Roland Sands Icon Watch,” said Sands. “The resulting watch is a timepiece that embodies the love and passion that I have for racing, the motorcycling community and innovative design.”

    Szanto ICON Signature Series: Roland Sands watches retail for $225 and are available for purchase online at timeconcepts.net.

    About Time Concepts

Cohen launched Time Concepts as a platform to develop Private Label watches after receiving ongoing requests to develop watches for other brands or retailers, and later added their own Szanto vintage brand and the Hawaiian Lifeguard Assn brand of dive watches. Time Concepts develops watches in Switzerland and Asia, and uses only top-quality manufacturers, with most watches manufactured in a dust-free, temperature and humidity controlled clean-room environment to ensure years of dependable service. For a full list of products and additional information on Time Concepts, please visit www.timeconcepts.net.
