FROM A FENDER RECLAIMED FROM HOLLYWOOD BOWL SEATS TO AN ELECTRIC BIKE THAT MIMICS FIRST-GEN HARLEYS, AMAZING WAYS TO MARRY PAST AND PRESENT

BY EVAN MONROE

Fender Front Row Esquire
The Hollywood Bowl has hosted some of the biggest acts in music history over its 95-year life. Not far away in Fullerton, California, Fender has been producing amps and guitars that have become synonymous with Rock-n-Roll. This model brings Bowl and Fender together in one instrument. Made from original Hollywood Bowl bleachers, each features a seat number and weathered patina, but with a thin satin protective finish. Aged brass hardware and a vintage-spec pickup make sure the sound of history is in your hands. $12,000

Oliver Sweeney x Talisker Boots
Prohibition days were marked not just by unending misery, but
also by artful subterfuge, including “bottle in boot” footwear
designed to hide hooch under the bottom of a pants leg. Oliver
Sweeney x Talisker Boots do this idea one better by integrating a
pocket on the ankle for the included 2 oz. fl ask. Handcrafted in the Italian village of Le Marche, they also feature a vintage-inspired St. Moritz outsole and a functional compass, along with a bottle of Talisker 10-year scotch. $810
