The most exclusive coasters you’ve ever seen
If you’ve seen Kingsman, then you’ll know that ‘etiquette makes the man’, so it’s no surprise that all good gentlemen keep their elbows on the table and their drinks on coasters. Thankfully, there is now a coaster that is worthy of the material it is printed on. Australian bespoke tailoring company InStitchu has just launched a range of coasters made from 100% Woolmark-certified Australian merino wool fabric and framed in 3D printed perspex shells for protection. Best of all, each coaster features a QR code that connects customers to InStitchu’s fabric collection so they can immediately start designing a bespoke, made-to-measure garment on their phone, starting with the exact fabric underneath their drink.
“We love the idea of getting really beautiful fabrics into the hands of potential customers in an environment they don’t expect,” says Rob O’Reilly, InStitchu’s Head of Marketing.” If you walk through a busy bar in the city in the afternoon, you’ll see lots of well-dressed men and women waiting for their friends or colleagues to have a drink – the opportunity to showcase our vast range of suit fabrics in striking windowpane, pinstripes and textured colours to this captive and relevant audience is a surprising and exciting prospect.”
Free beard make-up for Netflix’s ‘Grey Man’
Step into Netflix’s barbershop. In celebration of the action blockbuster ‘Grey Man’ and its lead character’s questionable facial hair, streaming service Netflix has dipped its toe into the grooming game. To give fans the chance to get some Grey Man-inspired facial hair, Netflix is launching the Good Guy Goatee/Bad Brother Mo barbershop.
The Good Guy Goatee/Bad Brother Barbershop is located in the Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy and will take place over one weekend only (29-31 July). Even better, all attendees will be able to choose a side; Good Guy Goatee or Bad Brother Moss. They will then step into the barber’s chair for a free shave of good guy Ryan Gosling’s rugged stubble goatee or bad guy Chris Evans’ trademark trash beard.

Toyota x AFL create a football forest for pennies on the dollar
Ever heard of a rugby forest? Neither have we. However, Toyota and the American Football Association are joining forces to create such a forest. In this new initiative, Toyota has pledged to plant a local tree for every point scored from rounds 17 to 19 of the Toyota AFL Super Season – a total of 27 games scored. Over the three rounds (Round 19 ended on Sunday 24 July), the teams amassed a total of 4,488 points. To further support the Footy Forest project, Toyota has announced that it will double the number of saplings donated to a total of almost 9,000 (8,976 to be exact).
