It’s time again for the ‘Things We Want’ round up of the best gear for men. It’s my weekly collection of the hottest gear I’ve come across from new releases to auctions, and practical to ultimate luxury items.
This weekly gear guide consists of Gear 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. I try to include all of the coolest and hottest gear of 2018 but sometimes things slip through the cracks.
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 email@example.com.
Hugh Hefner’s Bespoke Smoking Jacket
Want to own one of the most iconic garments in pop culture? Hugh Hefner’s bespoke red smoking jacket is up for auction. You can bid on it below over on Julien’s Auctions (auction ends 11/30/2018). I will be ABSOLUTELY SHOCKED if this doesn’t get purchased by the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas or somewhere similar, but you can still try and own a piece of Hollywood history. It’s bidding estimate is set between $3,000-$5,000 and I have to believe that it will sell for a lot more than that.
1986 USA Lacrosse Jersey
Can I get a ‘hell yes’ for this 86 USA Lax jersey? It’s just gorgeous. I’m angry I don’t own this. I’m angry that everyone doesn’t own one.
Kobuk Leather Backpack For Everyday Carry Adventures
Last year we featured Kodiak Leather’s handsome weekender duffel, a bag made to truly wow all your friends on your next fly fishing trip to Montana. The bags are the brainchild of Jared Morse, an outdoorsman based in Lehi, Utah who grew frustrated at the cost and functionality of premium leather luggage. So he created his own brand: Kodiak Leather, crafting custom bags that can stand every day use, from the plane to the trail.
Bitcoin-Only ‘Big Bang’ Hublot Watch
Is this a gimmick? Probably. Is it a great way to get millennials to spend their bitcoins on expensive items? Absolutely. Luxury retail watchmaker Hublot has released the first-ever watch that can only be purchased using Bitcoin.
The Big Bang is a limited-edition timepiece that’ll retail for around $25K. For more details, you can read the article below on Bloomberg. According to Hublot, ‘Each timepiece will have a unique certificate engrave on the watch case, which represents the identification number of the transaction’ so there’s even an added layer of exclusivity.
New Starter Jackets From Lids
I might be partial to these new/throwback Starter jackets from Lids because I’m a Buccaneers fan and ours is fresh as hell, but all of them are pretty darn good looking. Check ’em out and look for your team.
TRUFF Hot Sauce
I’ve featured TRUFF here before (back in March) but it’s back in the news this week after the world found out about it (thanks, Oprah!). This stuff actually packs a serious kick, and it’s heavenly if you enjoy truffles and hot sauce. The two work perfectly together.
Rabbit Axis Lever Corkscrew
Rabbit makes the industry-best wine opener. I’ve got one myself. Their latest model is supposed to be a massive upgrade and it’s certainly piqued my attention.
Oklahoma Joe’s BBQ/Smoker Tools
I was recently gifted some Oklahoma Joe’s smoker tools and it couldn’t have come at a better time because mine were falling apart and these Oklahoma Joe’s tools are amazing. Oklahoma Joe’s makes six models of wood-fire smokers and they also sell all of the wood chips, tools, and accessories you need to fire up the smoker and get cookin’. Their smokers are all heavy-gauge, Texas-style smokers that give you ultimate control over cooking space and temperature. If you’re looking for some holiday gift ideas just follow that link below!
Russ and Daughters New York Brunch
I lived in Manhattan for 9 years and now I’m back down in Florida where I grew up. The bagels in the state of Florida are just f*cking awful. I don’t even know how people can look themselves in the mirror selling what they call bagels. Thankfully, I can order a full Russ and Daughters bagel and lox brunch on Amazon that includes 1 lb Gaspe Nova Smoked Salmon, 1 lb All Natural Plain Cream Cheese, 6 Assorted Bagels, 1 Chocolate Babka, 12 oz Custom Roast Coffee Whole Bean, 1 Coffee Tumbler; 1 Insulated Tote Bag. Thank god for the Internet.
Adidas Sobakov Triple Black
The Sobakov has become Adidas’ best design, for me. I’m on love with every colorway they release of this style, especially the Triple Black which will be available for purchase beginning on November 14th.
Also, for any of you soccer fans out there you need to check this out. Yesterday, Adidas Football debuted their new COPA 19 boot which will be worn by Dybala at Juventus. This is the future of soccer boots!
Seiko Men’s Diver’s Automatic Stainless Steel Watch
Stainless steel with Japanese automatic movement, this watch is water resistant to 200m, which makes it a great dive watch for anything other than serious deep-sea scuba diving. The two-tone display makes it stand out, and the scratch-resistant crystal face and luminous hands make it a watch that’s both built to last and easy to read in all conditions. Want to shop more of the best dive watches? Hit that link. We just published a buyer’s guide to the best of 2018.
1994 USA ‘Denim’ Soccer Jersey
This 1994 ‘Denim’ jersey isn’t actually made out of denim. It just pays homage to the jerseys worn by Team USA during the 1994 World Cup, the USA’s first time hosting the World Cup. They’re made from 100% moisture-wicking material and goodness gracious are they beautiful.
Mountain Fleece By Topo Designs
Fall is the best time of year for men’s fashion and it’s not even close. Autumn brings cooler weather so you can bust out your comfy jeans, boots, flannels, and fleece pullovers. It’s all about the layering in Fall/Winter and a comfy fleece is an ideal way to layer when the temperatures are fluctuating.
Pour-Over Coffee Set
The Stagg X Pour-Over Set is perfectly designed to make the absolute best cup of coffee every single time. It’s designed to work with the traditional method of pour-over coffee which uses a continuous stream of water. The set includes Stagg X Dripper, one Tasting Glass, and 20 filters. You add the ground up beans and soon you’ll be drinking the best coffee of your life.
3 Knife + Wooden Stand Set
One thing every man needs is a quality set of knives to use in the kitchen. Above, you can see The 3 Knife + Stand Set from Material. It includes and 8” chef’s knife, 6” serrated knife, and Almost 4” paring knife along with a stylish Walnut wood storage block.
Best EDC Keychain Flashlights Around
Peak LED Solutions Eiger keychain flashlights have a bit of a cult-like following within the Everyday Carry community because they pack so many practical applications into such a tiny body. The company got its start by building parts for the International Space Station but have since turned to consumer-facing products with a focus on quality over quantity.
The Eiger Keychain Flashlights from Peak LED Solutions come in three styles/materials: Black made from Hard Anodized Aluminum, traditional Brass, and Stainless Steel. The black Hard Anodized Aluminum is $20 less than the other two, just as an FYI.
