I was over at gilt and I see the heynow, famous red and gray scale axes have sold out. I was admiring the $300 blanchetta but I wasn't sure if it would go with my SC Aldens. What axe do you carry?

Useful for hailing a taxi.

Why is their logo "Gilt MAN" with man in huge letters, while on the women's section it is just plain "Gilt". We see this everywhere. Another good example of this phenomia is the Junya labels....
I would like to see Gilt sell those axes in the women's section too, complete with a picture of a hot girl wearing that axe strapped to her back.

Metropolitan whistle. * Designed by Joseph Hudson and first deployed in 1870 by the Scotland Yard. * Use it for signaling the impending collapse of a falling tree; it will get the attention of the hardest of hearing. * Less shrill and warmer in tone than most whistles on the market today. * Comes in muslin drawstring pouch with light and heavy duty leather lanyards. Brand: Best Made Co.
From the cross-section of items they have, you would think that the average stylish man spends his days carrying around swiss army knives, paring knives, axes, first aid kits, along with the requisite fine fountain pen. These things a man do make. Can't wait until Gilt starts selling chainmail.
* Camera Bag – obviously I was using the camera to take the pictures
but I keep it in that bag along with some spare batteries and a couple memory cards. I find it invaluable to always have a camera with me. The one I carry is a Nikon CoolPix P50. * Passport – I keep this in my bag for a couple reasons, the main one being if I become separated from my wallet (like leaving it at home) I’ve usually got my bag with me, and with my passport with me I still have ID. Plus, if I ever need to flee the country on a moments notice…… just kidding
* Lockblade Knife – on the next row is the knife that permanently lives in my pockets * Pocket Caribiner – I keep this little collection in my pocket most of the time. We’ll go through it in a bit * Advil – I always have a bottle of advil in my bag, my glovebox, in my drawer at work, on my dresser at home…. I hate getting headaches! * U.S. Constitution – It’s covered by the altoids box but I keep this booklet with the Constitution and Declaration of Independence in my bag. * Altoids Tin – this is actually filled with several Vaseline soaked Cotton Balls to use as fire starters if needed. * Mini-Scriptures – I always keep the Word of the Lord with me * Emergency Whistle/compass/flashlight/timepiece – on the next row is a handy combo survival widget * Bag Caribiner – This collection stays in my bag, we’ll go through it next * Mini Water Filter/straw – this water filter is the type you attach a straw to, insert the opposite end into water and suck through the straw. Can be used in a glass, a stream, a puddle on the ground – whatever * FRS Radio – I have a HAM license but not a portable radio yet. The FRS radio will at least give me some communications ability along with my cell phone * Verizon EVDO Card – this is a cellular network USB Modem. It allows me to get high speed internet access wherever I have Verizon cellular service – which is just about everywhere. I’ve hiked to the top of several mountains with my bag on my back and relaxed on the peak and gotten on the internet just for fun

The MAN label appears to be a form of subtle re-assurance for guys that the clothing is manly. Think I'm wrong? Then explain why there is no Gilt WOMEN logo.

Oh and I cannot help but think this axe sale is a publicity stunt. Just look at all the attention it's receiving!

They sell bikes, pens, and even vacations. Not really much of a surprise is it?
