in case 785 smelly hound dogs eat your holiday turkey, Binging with Babish has you covered. The chef prepares Peking duck, similar to what Ralphie and his family are served at the Chinese restaurant in the Christmas classic. He wraps the meat up in a homemade Mandarin-style pancake and tops it with thinly sliced cucumbers, scallions, and hoisin sauce.
In 1957, Ivan Chermayeff and Tom Geismar teamed up to create what would be one of the most legendary design duos ever. Over their 60 years together, they've made some of the most iconic logos for companies like Pan Am, Mobil Oil, PBS, and Xerox, and that's just scratching the surface. In this short tribute, their extraordinary career is highlighted with an interview of the pair, sadly the last for Chermayeff.
Inspired by the iridescent wings of the Blue Morpho butterfly, this new jacket from Vollebak has over two billion microscopic blue glass spheres embedded in resin on the jacket's surface. The glass spheres create an entirely reflective jacket that is constantly changing color while you ski or snowboard. The Blue Morpho is engineered for a max range of motion with plenty of room for a hoodie underneath. The jacket also is fully seam-sealed, waterproof, and includes an ocean-racing style marine hood and high collar. The visibly stunning piece of outerwear acts like a mirror for whatever light conditions you're in, with a liquid metal appearance under the sun that shifts to a bionic blue at night with any camera flash, torch, or searchlight.

Daniel Craig's direct hand in shaping the wardrobe for James Bond has been well documented, and his earliest influence on modern Bond style is reflected in the Sunspel Riviera polo. Worn by Craig in the early moments of Casino Royale while in the Bahamas, the polo was hand selected for the film after being pulled from Sunspel's archives and altered to a more modern silhouette. Originally designed by the owners of Sunspel in the 1950's to be worn in the heat of the French Riviera, the mesh fabric was custom developed to provide the maximum amount of cooling to the wearer. Almost an oversized piqué, the fabric is truly unique and now instantly recognizable thanks to Bond. It's cut short and comfortably trim, and is always meant to be worn untucked. Available in black, white, and navy (as worn in Casino Royale), it's ideal for the summer heat anywhere your mission may take you.
