It’s time for the weekly ‘Things We Want’ round up of the best gear for men on the Internet. It’s a collection of the hottest gear I’ve come across this week. Ranging from items I desperately want in my life to things I’ll never be able to afford, I try and include a cross-section of everything here in the ‘Things We Want‘ roundup. If you know of a product that you think should be featured in my weekly Gear Guide then feel free to hit me up via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bluffworks Tailored Fit Chinos
If you’ve been reading my ‘Things We Want This Week’ gear guide for years now then you’ve probably noticed that I’m extremely picky when it comes to certain things. One of those things that I’m very particular about is pants. The fit, feel, sheen, the weight of the fabric, cut, style…I have opinions on all of these things. That’s why I want to introduce you bros to Bluffworks Tailored Fit Chinos.
I recently picked up a pair of the Harvest Gold chinos pictured above (I see them more as a ‘mustard’ color though), and I’m in love with these pants. They fit perfectly, come in every size configuration you could ever conceivably want. They’ve got support where I need it and stretch/give where I need that. There are hidden zippered pockets inside of the side pockets to lock up cash/valuables when you’re traveling. The Tailored Fit Chinos are made from a moisture-wicking fabric to keep you cool in warm weather but the fabric doesn’t feel like/flimsy at all, these feel exactly how I want pants to feel. They’re designed and manufactured in the heart of NYC, wrinkle-free, and no-iron. If you have strong opinions about pants and/or are looking for your next favorite pair of pants then check out the Tailored Fit Chinos from Bluffworks.

The all-new PowerCore Speed 20000 portable charger from Anker is a must have. This holds enough juice to fully charge up your iPhone seven times. That means you can get an entire week’s worth of charge out of this single portable battery. It’s also super sleak and can be easily tucked away into your backpack. If I’m buying everyone in my family (including myself) the same gift for Christmas this year then it’s the PowerCore Speed 20000 because it’s that useful.

Sharkbanz — Convenient And Effectiv Shark Deterrent
I’m typically pretty skeptical when it comes to shark deterrents but the science behind Sharkbanz seems to be legit. If you’re at all wary about swimming in the ocean due to sharks, you shouldn’t be. But if you need something that’s a scientifically proven shark deterrent to give you peace of mind that shark are going to leave you alone then check out Sharkbanz. Also, for the holidays, Sharkbanz is teaming up with surf artist Jay Alders to create unique shark/surf inspired designs which will be featured on t-shirts. Proceeds from each shirt sold will go to benefit Sufers Healing, a charity that empowers children with autism by teaching them how to surf. Pretty awesome stuff, and a worth cause I’m stoked to get involved with.

Earlier in the week, we published a buyer’s guide for the best noise-canceling headphones of 2017. If you are looking for over-ear headphones then follow that link. But, if you’re earphones/earbuds then check out the Bose SoundSport Free Truly Wireless Sport. Bose, without question, are at the top of the game. I’ve been hooked on Bose every since I sold headphones while working retail back in college, and these are the best around.

There’s a heat retention layer in the sockliner and outsole to keep your feet warm. And just like every pair of Vans on the market, these are incredibly comfortable.
Twist Whiskey Glasses — Faceted Whiskey Glasses For Men
I stumbled upon this set of faceted whiskey glasses earlier in the week when I found a buyer’s guide to the best faceted whiskey glasses for men. I’ve always drank out of classic etched glass whiskey glasses or clear rocks glasses. But after seeing these faceted glass styles I think I’m hooked on this modern design.

EarDial: The Invisible Smart Earplugs for Live Music
Ear plugs are decidedly not a “cool” thing to wear to concerts. But you may still be familiar with that ringing in your ears after a loud concert that just kept bugging you. That’s called tinnitus and, shockingly, it’s really bad for your hearing. Experts agree that long exposure to levels of sound over 85dB can cause hearing loss, and most clubs and concerts are over 100dB. That’s why EarDial was invented. This comfortable, discreet hearing protection was specially designed for loud music environments. It filters noise so you can enjoy the music, still chat with your friends, and not look like a Melvin with your earplugs in.
