20 Things To Get Before You're 40

Share
Special Offer

11) A REAL WATCH
No, you can't wear rubber on your wrist with the YSL tux. MC recommends: the Cartier roadster ($3,950). Mechanical movement with automatic winding that works off the heat from your skin. Kinky. . .

12) A BIG-ASS TV
MC recommends: Philips 50-inch ambilight, $3999. Hello, size queen.

13) A SMARTY-PANTS SUBSCRIPTION
Foreign Affairs, The American Scholar, The Economist. To be read, not fanned out on the coffee table.

14) A SERIOUS RIDE
Adieu, Budget! MC recommends: the Cadillac XLR roadster, $78,495. Not your daddy's Caddy, trust us.

15) AWAY
Forget the brocade cushiness of the European capitals. Whether it's overnighting in a ger in Mongolia or experiencing Vietnam before Mcdonald's takes over, enjoy a soul-expanding, life-changing Third World vacation.

16) SOME CLASSIC CDs
Verve just released the to go series featuring discs of Coltrane, Ella, Billie, and seven others. Buy all 10: Jazz makes you look cool and gets you laid; even better, you'll be listening to these long after you've stopped caring about both.

17) SOME CLASSIC DVDs
Try MGM's Billy Wilder Collection: everything from The Apartment to Some Like It Hot. In terms of classy wit, makes The Devil Wears Prada look like Loony tunes.

18) A DECENT CUP OF COFFEE
Wake up and smell it. MC recommends: the Illy X1 Francis Francis! Espresso Machine ($800).

19) A DESTINATION HAIRCUT
Whether it's Leonor Greyl in Paris, or Chris McMillan in L.A., spend serious bank, at least once, on something crazy-chic.

20) OTHER THINGS TO GET?
Busy, ready, pregnant, on with it. (Did we mention a YSL tux?)
