Nostalgic Links Cufflinks

Jewelry is a slippery slope for a lot of guys. One day you agree to start wearing a ring, and the next thing you know you wake up 20 years later in suburbia driving a minivan. It's not that we don't relish the idea of trading in 24hr access to Chinese food, a sports car and time ...

The AETHER Crosby Jacket Is Refined Yet Rugged

The AETHER Crosby Jacket Is Refined Yet Rugged

Despite popular belief, it is possible to dress for the elements without looking like Ralphie in A Christmas Story. The Crosby Jacket from AETHER is constructed with a 3-layer, 100% wool outer and a removable liner filled with 100 grams of PrimaLoft Gold insulation. Put simply: It will keep you toasty. That said, the Crosby Jacket is anything but a puffy, ill-fitting piece of outerwear. The water resistant, breathable, seam sealed jacket boasts a modern appearance suited for the city slicker on the move. Refined yet rugged, the Crosby Jacket is ready for Mother Nature’s worst.

2011 Moleskine Desk Calendar

2011 Moleskine Desk Calendar

Moleskine is getting to the point that it's the ubiquitous notebook. The Scotch tape or Kleenex of the written word world. We're fine with that, but we need constant visible reminders about the important things happening today because we can't be bothered to take said ubiquitous ...

Bullet Bottle Opener

Bullet Bottle Opener

Outside of firing a few BB gun rounds into some empty beer cans when you were a kid, you’d be hard pressed to find a time when combining alcohol and firearms was actually a good idea.  The Bullet Bottle Opener would be one of those few occasions when it is.  Crafted from one ...

686 Toolbelts

If you've heard of the skate/snowboarding/technical apparel company 686, you're probably wondering what they're doing making toolbelts. Slow your roll Bob Vila; we're not talking about that kind of toolbelt. The latest invention from the guys at 686 could very well be the most im...

MS&Co Selvedge Sleeves

Ask any man what his favorite piece of clothing is and you will only get one response - jeans. Not just any pair of jeans, his favorite pair of jeans. In case you weren't paying attention during the Denim Primer, selvage is the way to go for jeans. But why should that sweet selva...

Drifted Handmade Belt Buckles

Drifted Handmade Belt Buckles

Long ago, cowboys decided to take a little piece of functional hardware--the belt buckle--and turn it into an accessory. We're not about to advocate you go out and get yourself a rodeo-ready belt buckle so big you could eat your eggs off it... unless you happen to ride in rodeos ...

Utili-Key 6-in-1 Tool

Imagine that you're in a life-or death situation against the clock where you need to unscrew something, cut something, saw something, unscrew something else, repair a set of eyeglasses, and open a bottle of beer. Disregarding how absurd this situation would be, the Utili-Key woul...

Indie Nation Wood Eyewear

Crate and Barrel Grip Bookend

Crate and Barrel Grip Bookend

We've said it before: there's a soft spot in our hearts for a cool product that ingeniously repurposes a mundane object to serve a new function. We're not talking about MacGuyvering an AM Radio out of a paper clip, a Q-tip, and 9 volt battery either. Take these old classic hand-c...

Continua Aluminum Water Bottles

Continua Aluminum Water Bottles

H-two-oh. It's kind of a big deal. Along with being f-ing everywhere, the world's most accessible resource does a lot of really cool stuff. It makes t-shirts on women acceptable. It hydrates better than Gatorade. It helps you grow "plants." Most importantly, it's the largest ingr...

Sharpie Liquid Pencil

Sharpie Liquid Pencil

The folks over at Sharpie have apparently decided that something like the pencil--an invention that has existed as a graphite/lead-based writing implement for time immemorial--needed reinventing. Indeed, the Sharpie Liquid Pencil is the Cyberdyne Systems T-1000 to the traditional...

RazorPit

RazorPit

Ah, razor blades. In recent years razors have gone a bit off the deep end with the concept. Companies will introduce the Mach Thunderblade 9000: Thor Edition, with fourteen blades, a laser sight, proximity sirens, and 450 anytime minutes and unlimited nights and weekends. And whi...

Urn Ceramic Ashtray

Urn Ceramic Ashtray

It's fairly obvious that the Urn Ashtray is a visual metaphor. Either a macabre reminder that cigarettes will kill you, or a darkly humorous one-finger salute to those who say you shouldn't smoke 'em.  Either way, it's clever, amusing, and if not an ample ashtray, at least a gre...

Champagne Cork Coat Hook

Champagne Cork Coat Hook

Well, "hook" isn't really the right word, as there's nothing hookish about the champagne cork coat hook. We all know hooks are for pirates, butchers, and amput...  nevermind. Bad taste. Truth is though, if you're gonna lay your hat or jacket up on a hook of some sort, why be so ...

TC Studio Knife Magnets

When was the last time you were so furious that you wanted to put a knife in something? Last week? Yesterday? 10 minutes ago? Now you can get that satisfaction without someone calling the cops, the mess, and all the yelling - if you want to stab a fridge. The TC Studio Knife Magn...
