Inspired by his wife’s great-grandfather’s pocket journals from the 1900s and the detailed picture that each notebook painted of his life, designer/illustrator Jon Contino (his work has appeared on everything from clothing to walls to liquor to beer) teamed up with Word. Notebooks to create a modern iteration of this storied notebook. We call it The Standard Memorandum, and now it’s back for 2016. Each Made in the USA notebook measures 2.35″ x 5.25″ and includes 64 pages for you to jot down a line or two every day of the year. Whether you’re using it to remember for yourself, or planning to pass it down to future generations, each Standard Memorandum is a year of your life on paper.

Gerber-Pocket-Square-Linerlock-1_1024x1024

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
