COOKOUT TESTED. PRESIDENT-APPROVED. AMERICAN-MADE DOMINOES SO BEAUTIFUL THAT EVEN YOUR UNCLES WON'T SLAM THEM.
The name ‘Shinola’ joined the American lexicon during World War II thanks to the phrase, "You don't know sh*t from Shinola". Although the shoe polish company closed its doors in 1960, the name returned to circulation when Detroit-based start-up launched to rival Swiss watchmakers in 2011. Pronounced "shine-oh-lah," the high-end boutique draws on the Motor City's manufacturing history. But instead of cars, Shinola sells handmade bicycles, leather goods, watches and more. The latest addition to its growing artisan empire is the Shinola + Crisloid Domino Set. The beautifully made double-six dominoes feature black resin tiles perfectly polished for smooth gameplay. The set even comes with two blank tiles that can be machined to replace any piece that’s lost. Ideal for classing up the cookout session of bones, Shinola’s impact on the economy can be felt well beyond family reunion bragging rights. This lifestyle brand even has the endorsement of Barack Obama, so pick up a presidentially-approved set as a gift for yourself or a loved one today.
