50 Things We Want: Tony Soprano-Inspired Shirts, Beer And Vodka Reviews, And More

50 Things We Want Tony Soprano

We’ve got a mixed bag of great style and gear picks this week in 50 Things We Want. We found an independent online shop selling shirts inspired by The Sopranos, as well as a collaboration involving a water company, Tony Hawk, and Tony Hawk’s blood.

We’re also highlighting a couple of beautiful watchmakers—because you can never have enough watches.

Oh, and we’ve got a whole lot of style picks we curated just in time for the changing of the seasons. Throwdown on some new shirts, athletic shoes, outerwear, and more.

It’s all here in 50 Things We Want.


This Small Shop Is Making Tony Soprano-Inspired Shirts, We Need One

Tony Soprano Etsy

The Sopranos has solidified itself not only in the television canon but also in the category of best T.V. show style as well. Tony’s patterned Hawaain shirts are iconic to his character in the show. And by pairing them with his gold rings and gold chains, you have a visual representation of the dramatic high-low kind of guy he is.

We found this awesome shop Avoid Crafts on Etsy that’s making high-quality replicas of the very shirts Tony wore. Simply put, we’ve got to get our hands on one.

Liquid Death Infused Tony Hawks Blood Into A Limited Edition Run Of Skate Decks

Liquid Death recently announced a wild collaboration with Tony Hawk. Together the two are releasing a limited-run of some one-of-a-kind skate decks.

While the design of the skate deck is pretty gnarly, the most unique feature is each board’s paint is infused with Tony’s blood. 10% of the profits will also go to 5 Gyres Science to Solutions, an organization focused on killing plastic in oceans, as well as The Skatepark Project, an organization set on building skateparks in underserved communities.

Tell us about another water company that’s doing campaigns like this. We’ll wait.


Review: Stone Buenavea Salt & Lime Lager

Stone Buenavea Salt & Lime Lager

I’m down in Florida so the Stone Buenavea Salt & Lime Lager is a year-round beverage for me but I know a lot of people out there associate beers (and Micheladas) like this with Summer. I’m here to tell you that you can and should be crushing these cans all year long because the flavor is simply the best. Whether you’re chilling by the pool, on a boat, or just cracking some cold ones with the boys this is a perfect beer that packs more flavor than I ever expected.

Stone Brewing was one of the first top-tier craft breweries I was introduced to back in the day and it’s pretty awesome to see them continue to pump out world-class beers year after year. I’d also highly suggest checking out their ready-to-go Michelada Mix in a 32oz bottle if you’re into that because it makes the entire Michelada mixing process so easy. Check it out at the link below and thank us later!

Review: Broken Shed Vodka from New Zealand

Broken Shed Vodka from New Zealand

There aren’t many things in my life with ties to New Zealand. It’s on the literal other side of the world. So when I caught wind of Broken Shed Vodka as being from New Zealand my interest was piqued.

Broken Shed Vodka is being called the ‘Vodka of Tomorrow’ which is weird because I plan on drinking it tonight. But the name itself is actually a clever nod to how “it’s already tomorrow” in New Zealand because of the differences in time zones. It is distilled using New Zealand spring water which, to be fair, was enough to get my attention right there. It’s currently available in 25 states and you can search for it on Drizly by following that ’shop’ button below. Definitely keep this in mind if you’re looking for something new, interesting, and quality-made.

Klipsch T5 II ANC Earbuds

Klipsch T5 II ANC

Klipsch really knocked it out of the park with their new T5 II ANC earbuds. The ANC’s are the best model of their new earbud release line, and we took some time to test them out for you guys.

Perhaps the best feature about the T5’s is their Dirac HD Sound, an audio optimization software brought to the earbud by Dirac. The software focuses on higher quality sound, active noise canceling, and transparent phone calls. What you get is a broad soundstage, clear vocals, and a tighter bass that doesn’t go too far like other earbuds sometimes do.

Klipsch makes it so you can actually turn the Dirac software off too and hear the difference. Other great additions include 7-hour battery life, a comfortable fit in-ear, and a Transparency Mode that lets you adjust and amplify your voice when on an important phone call.

Final thoughts, we’re all in on these sleek, futuristic earbuds.

Grab This French Terry Sweatshirt For Over 30% Off, Perfect For Fall Weather

It’s amazing how a small tweak in the materials you use can change a garment drastically, and that’s why we’re spotlighting this French terry crewneck from Flint and Tinder.

Available for over 30% off right now, this crewneck comes in three colors: charcoal, space gray, and washed navy. They’re garment dyed, which elevates the softness of the sweatshirt while also giving it a vintage look.

What’s great is you can take this sweatshirt out on the town for more casual and formal pairings. Details like a classic v-notch at the neck and a front pocket add texture and convenience when wearing out to the bar or to a show—or to the pumpkin patch.

Best Basketball Shoes for Pickup

Unsplash


Running up and down the court gives you the cardio strength to keep up, but what’s important is staying limber. Stretching before and after you play so you don’t pull any muscles out there.

You also have to own the proper gear, specifically the right shoes. A proper basketball shoe requires ankle support. These days even the low-top models are made to protect your ankles fully.

They should also hold your heel and foot in a locked place. This will keep you from damaging any muscle or joints as you turn and make fast movements. A basketball shoe must have a significant amount of cushioning to deaden the force of running and jumping too.

Fortunately, we’ve got some excellent recommendations on basketball shoes. You can read the full article here.
