Huckberry-x-Cool-Material-Sale-th

Getting something you were already probably going to buy, at a discount, is never a bad thing and that’s why we love daily deal sites. But honestly, we don’t check them all anymore. We love sneakers and ties and wallets as much as the next guy, but even we have a limit. Huckberry is the exception. We’ve partnered with the guys over at Huckberry to put together a sale filled with the things we’d buy from a daily deal site. The brands we selected all produce cool products and gear, obviously, but they’re as committed to producing excellence in product form as we are to reporting about it. They’re the physical “cool material” equivalent of what every man wants to be—good looking, well-built and long lasting. As a special bonus, Huckberry is offering all Cool Material a $5 credit just for signing up. So head over and check out the wares from TSOVET, Mission Workshop, Terrapin Stationers, Luke Lamp Co., Visual Etiquette, Portland Growler and Walnut Leather—along with our special Cool Material Notebooks.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
