SILCA is a brand founded outside of Milan, Italy, almost a century ago (1917, to be precise). As of 2013, that made SILCA the oldest company in the bicycle industry to have been continually owned by the same family. That same year, the grandson of the founder sold the company to Joshua Poertner, who had over a decade of experience at Zipp and a desire to take the brand to new heights. One of their newest releases is a toolkit, the HX-One, that’s as functional as anything from Snap-on and as pretty as anything you’d find at the MoMA Store. Each of the pieces in the kit starts with S-2 Tool Steel before getting coated with thin-dense chrome and then spray coated with a textured polymer for maximum grip and control. You also get a proprietary magnetic adapter to turn the hex key into a 1/4″ socket drive. This might be the best looking tool kit we’ve ever seen.

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.
