Coffee Down Under

All of us have this one problem in common. Off course it's a problem in varying degrees. Some have a mini one, others have a herculean one. The problem is offensive socks. But how do socks get to be such a problem anyway? Well, the good news is that feet do not naturally have any odor glands.


Giving A Hand To Clean Air

Star Trek: The Final Frontier For Polo Shirts

Forget the Izod alligator or the usual polo pony for Polo shirts. Polo is finally going where no Polo shirt has gone before -- straight into the final frontier. They are finally taking Trekkies seriously (okay, as seriously as anyone can), and turning the uniform shirts from the original series into business casual.
