the escape artist

The weekender is easy to explain and nearly impossible to execute. In theory, it will carry all you need for two or three days. In practice, it’s invariably sized to accommodate either a morning commute or an overseas tour. Happily, Berluti has reached the Goldilocks zone with its latest offering—a smooth, streamlined, vaguely cubist interpretation in pristine white leather with black piping. It’s just the right size to bust you out of town for a few days. And don’t worry about the leather—when it’s sitting comfortably in the backseat of a world-class ride (see Esquire’s Best New Car Awards on page 90 for some suggestions), scuffs shouldn’t be a problem. ■…

The neutrality of this information is disputed. And rightfully so. By Drew DernavichAn automobile, or car, is the four-person passenger vehicle you just rammed into because you weren’t paying attention. After opioids and recreational marijuana, cars are the primary means of transportation for most Americans. They are powered by engines that run on gasoline in the same way the human body “runs” on Dunkin’ Donuts, and they are driven on roads, a system of asphalt pathways that connect drivers to their hidden rage. Although the automobile was invented by German engineer Karl Benz, it was mass-produced by American businessman Henry Ford and converted into a place of primary residence by actor Chris Pratt. ■…

fresh hell on the half-shell

I have a son, a fifteen-year-old. He’s the eldest of three, with two sisters who are three and six years younger. At present, the stress of life for my daughters appears to primarily come from the kind of adolescent rites of passage practically every American born since World War II has been made to suffer: boredom; braces; grades; dinners that don’t involve ketchup. If they’re not on one screen (iPhone), they’re on another (TV). Otherwise, growing up at the slight remove of outer Fairfield County, Connecticut, they are experiencing childhood as, for the most part, still that very magical and important thing: childhood.Up until about two years ago, so was my son. Admittedly, the change began when he entered high school, the age when curious kids are expected to start…

retool your tech life

It turns out Life as We Know It 3.0 is really buggy. Screens? Addictive. Facebook? Bad for your health and democracy. Amazon? They’ve made it too easy to spend your paycheck. And not to get all Karl Marx at a TED Talk here, but there’s also the social cost of opting in. Is the near-instantaneous spread of videos, photos, and bits of information a plus? When Amazon builds a headquarters in your city, is that a good thing for the average resident? The story’s still developing, and the future isn’t all rainbow emoji.We are in that post-honeymoon period with Silicon Valley’s various creations. But if you think there’s value in a lot of these networks and services, there are ways to manage your relationship with them so they feel less…
