Pen Type-A by Brooklyn design firm cw&t was one of the first pens we ever backed on Kickstarter, and it remains one of our favorites to this day. It took them four years of designing, testing and prototypes, but cw&t is finally back with a sequel to the pen that basically gave birth to the Kickstarter pen phenomenon. It might have a similar but redesigned shaft and use the same Hi-Tec-C cartridges as its older brother, but Pen Type-B is designed to be taken with you everywhere because of the pocketable brass sleeve. The extremely minimalist exterior is gorgeous, but there’s a lot of technology hiding inside. A special neodymium magnet hides in the end of the brass sleeve with a small piece of rubber to hold your pen in place and prevent it from drying out. The pen itself uses three different types of stainless and special machining to create the perfect magnetic seal on both ends and also to create airflow through the shaft. It might not write upside down, but this pen still has a NASA level of engineering… and it’s gorgeous.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
