In 1968, Mattel decided to take a shot at the die-cast toy car crown. Matchbox, the champ at the time, was popular for its toy replicas of real vehicles, and had been since its inception in the early ’50s.  Mattel took a different approach, offering more tricked-out toy cars that blurred the line between reality and fiction. The first batch of die-cast cars released is a perfect example, and you can see that for yourself if you drop the cash on this 50th anniversary commemorative. Recreations of the first 16 cars are all included in a replica store display that looks pulled from the shelves of a now-defunct department store. Only 1,500 of these sets will be made and Hot Wheels club members get first crack. If you want one, consider signing up or scouring eBay after the release.

Howler Brothers flannel shirts bring buttery soft warmth to your fall lineup. The Harker’s is simple enough to be a staple in your closet but funky enough to stand out. The Stockman Flannel Snapshirt warms up western styling with a tonal western yoke and metal snaps so you can rodeo your way through winter. The Stockman Stretch carries the same DNA but also adds a bit of stretch to the bloodline. They’re all soft, versatile and ready to keep you toasty wherever you roam. The only issue is that it’s tough to pick just one.
