Cool Material is your daily source for better gear, insightful articles, and insider info on all the stuff guys want.

Born out of our passion for exciting products, the site has grown from the small hobby blog it started as in 2009. Today, not only do we bring you a daily selection of carefully curated items we think you’ll love, but we take you inside workshops and stores, share stories about innovative brands and craftsmen, and supply you with entertaining and informative reads we think you’ll enjoy. While we’ve grown, we’ve kept quality, uniqueness, and that inherent cool at the heart of everything we post.

Basically, we’re lovers of awesome goods just like you. It’s what motivates us to make Cool Material the best men’s lifestyle destination possible, so we appreciate you stopping by to check it out. If you like what you see, sign up for our newsletter to get the newest gear and freshest stories delivered right to your inbox every day.
