After struggling to find underwear that fit them comfortably, the founders of Bear Skn went ahead and started designing their own, and aimed to make men of size feel great in their undies. After raising nearly $60k on Kickstarter, it would appear they weren’t alone and the comfy underwear for all sizes will begin shipping in November. Bear Skn underwear doesn’t exclude smaller guys either – the waste sizes range from 28″-62″

Merritt is best known for her roles in children’s shows such as Ravenswood, but we first noticed her playing the seductive daughter of a weed farmer in the film Kid Cannabis (yeah, we watch stuff like that, not so much ABC Family). Born in Whistler, BC, she got her start by winning the 2006 Canadian Herbal Essences teen model search and now will be starring alongside Elizabeth Hurley in the 2015 TV movie The Royals. We wish this sizzling Canadian the best of luck with her film career and are looking forward to seeing her in more stuff!

We post a lot of Kickstarter projects on Frachelli, and we’re always glad to see when innovative and stylish projects are successful. A while back we featured the Harvey LED Desk Lamp and now the product has been produced in two sizes and available for sale from Inertia Projects. Unlike conventional lamps, the joints in the lamp use magnets to hold them in place instead of springs which offers precision movement and adjustments. Hand-stitched with embossed buttons that gives a tactile quality, and because the lamp utilizes the latest technology LEDs from Philips, it is A++ energy rated using just 3 Watts for a brightness of 380 lumens.

Come Spring 2015, Mercedes will be unleashing a stylish new sports car from their high-performance arm AMG – and it seems to take dead aim at the Porsche 911 (does that rear-end look a little familiar?). Packing a new hand-built AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine and 7-speed dual clutch transmission, the AMG GT S has an estimated 0-60 mph time of 3.7 seconds and top speed of 193 mph. The GT S engine produces 505 hp but there will also be a GT version with 456 hp (and estimated 0-60 times for the GT are 3.9 seconds). Either way, you’re getting a very powerful and FAST car with all the styling and amenities expected from a Mercedes. While it has the gullwing shape of the SLS AMG, standard doors are used on the AMG GT – perhaps to keep the price more inline with it’s Porsche rival. Speaking of, pricing has not been announced but if we had to guess it would be around $125k.
