They charge around 15 cents per ear, and one ear cleaner interviewed by the LA Times says he gets about 12 customers per day.

Whether you’re looking for gift ideas or a quick upgrade for yourself, expect these to come around about once a month. You’ll find new arrivals and old favorites, especially good deals, or maybe something pricey to keep an eye on for future sales. The potential best of the best, which you may or may not have seen already. Got a tip on something that deserves to end up in the monthly Most Wanted? Send those in here.

 

Saddleback Thin Brief in Black – $461 – $474

Saddleback Thin Brief in Black | Most Wanted Affordable Style - July 2015 from Dappered.com

Not their old, marbled, greyish looking “Carbon” black. Just black. None more black. Sure, most are going to go for the Dark Coffee Brown, but getting a classic black Saddleback Thin Brief in production has been long awaited by more than a few. $461 for the medium size, and $474 for the large. Guaranteed for 100 years. Review(s) of the Dark Coffee Brown can be found here.

 

Allen Edmonds Mojave 2 – $350

Allen Edmonds Mojave 2 | Most Wanted Affordable Style - July 2015 from Dappered.com

Wow those are pricey. And wow those are something. More structure than a standard, inexpensive desert boot, and made in the USA from English Suede. For the guys who don’t wear dress shoes all that often, and instead are in boots and jeans or chinos quite a bit. Fingers crossed these hit the sale section at some point. Their Chukkas usually seem to.

 

Banana Republic Tailored-Fit Navy Nailhead Cotton Blazer – $198

Banana Republic Tailored-Fit Navy Nailhead Cotton Blazer | Most Wanted Affordable Style - July 2015 from Dappered.com

Dead. Friggin’. Simple. And that’s perfect. Just a touch of visual interest thanks to the nailhead pattern to the cotton. Is it fully lined, and likely lined in mostly polyester? Yes. Does it probably have functional sleeve buttons, which are a pain to tailor? Also yes. But if you can get a decent off the rack fit, it could be a great blazer to build plenty of outfits around. Blazers don’t often go on sale, but they will eventually. Color is described as “Blue Steel.” Yes really. Gasoline fight!

 

UNIQLO Extra Fine Merino V – $39.90 (and weather to wear it in)

UNIQLO Extra Fine Merino V | Most Wanted Affordable Style - July 2015 from Dappered.com

Looks what’s back. Just in time for… the dead of summer? Look, if there is such a thing as a summer sweater, it’s probably one of these. They are on the thin side, but they’re not poorly constructed. Slim fit too. Breathable merino wool, lots of colors to pick from, and layers up great with OCBDs and sportcoats when fall rolls around. Keep an eye out for a sale.

 

Orient Mako USA Automatic – $225

Orient Mako USA Automatic | Most Wanted Affordable Style - July 2015 from Dappered.com

Orient took the best of their flagship “Mako”, and the best elements from their “Ray”, put a sapphire crystal on it, solid end-links for the bracelet… and priced it at $60 – $70 less than their mineral crystal counterparts. Bravo. In-house automatic movement, 200m water resistance, and a 120-click uni-directional bezel. Coupon codes don’t appear to work on these things… yet?

 

BONUS: Maxx&Unicorn USA Made Black Oxide Money Clip – $38.00

Maxx&Unicorn USA Made Black Oxide Money Clip | Most Wanted Affordable Style - July 2015 from Dappered.com

Mean money. The Maxx&Unicorn money clip in brass has appeared on this site before, but the black oxide finish deserves a mention too. Solid brass underneath which gets exposed over time with use. Made in Brooklyn.

I've got a fascinating video created by StoryBrain that explains the details of why CGI special effects peaked in the '90s and how the improvement of the technology has ruined movies, beginning with Peter Jackson's King Kong. Even though CGI technology has allowed filmmakers to do more in bringing their stories to life, our brains process it negatively.  

A lot of people have said that Special Effects in movies feel hollow compared to the movies from 10 or 20 years ago. Obviously, CGI plays a part, but there's a very specific reason that things aren't working as well.

This is a very interesting video that presents some insight that will make you think.

Here’s an interesting video explainer that details why special effects and fancy CGI has ruined movies (or at least, made them less enjoyable). It all feels too fake! Story Brain breaks down how as technology for CGI improved and allowed movie makers to do more with visual effects, our brains interpret it negatively.

I imagine that while making the press rounds for a movie like Ant-Man the days can be long and tedious. Going through one interview after another, hearing the same questions over and over again... Rudd decided to make things interesting, and all the way through a video interview with Clevver Movies, the actor decided to make fart sounds, and it's absolutely hilarious! It was great that he never let up on the joke, he just kept rubbing his butt across the chair making fart noises all the way to the end, and it makes for one of the funniest press junket interviews that I've seen.
