The Frisky has teamed up with Thrillist, the daily men’s lifestyle and city guide, to bring you a weekly list of things for the guys in your life. Here’s “Thrillist’s Top 5 Things That Don’t Suck”.

Gear: Neil Barrett Silver Brogues
Rock this edgy Milan-based designer’s pattern-stitched beauties to work, and the only person who’ll out-clout you in meetings will be gold-spiked sprinter Michael Johnson, who smokes you at company field day, too. Man, that guy owns you. []

Services: Crgslst
This dynamically coded front end to Craigslist’s database lets you quickly scour posts from across the country without navigating to each unique city page, the perfect aid for the man whose apartment is so wretched, he’ll take a nicer pad…anywhere. []


Covert Drinks: Barnoculars
Unscrew the eyepieces to get at 8oz o’ poison per side of binocs so realistic looking, no one will think you’re sauced, though they will suspect you’re watching your neighbors screw. [After5Catalog]

Sleeping Bag

Gear: Design-Your-Own Sleeping Bag
Pop in a minimum expected temp, then use this sac-maker’s slick interface to navigate 17 customization areas, including inner and outer fabric/color, stuff pattern (more down on top/bottom/foot), bag width and length, and whether you want “draft tubes” — which will disappoint camping pals when they fail to spout an endless stream of Coors Gold.

Services: Slut-O-Meter
Enter any person, place, or thing, and this site’ll use a formula that weighs “safe” Google results against “unsafe” ones to yield the subject’s slut coefficient. Britney Spears comes in at 54%, while “High-School” is 84% — proving that despite what the media tells you, that little hooker’s come a long way. [Slut-O-Meter]
