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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
1961 Ferrari 250 GTE x Testarossa Up For Auction
What, what? Is it a 1961 GTE or a Testarossa? How can it be both? Here’s the description from the J.D. Classics auction page where you can bid on this unique Ferrari: ‘Based on a 1961 Ferrari 250 GTE, this beautiful 250 Testa Rossa was constructed by experts Neil Twyman in 2001.’
Still wondering what’s up? Industry legendary restorer Neil Twyman constructed this car from two models and created a Ferrari fusion. The resulting vehicle is a one-of-a-kind Ferrari that’s absolutely gorgeous. For full specs and auction details just click that link below and head over to J.D. Classics’ auction page!
Supreme New York + Mophie Juice Pack Air Battery Cases
The Supreme New York + Mophie Juice Pack Air Battery Cases for iPhone 7/8 and iPhone 7+/8+ were included in Supreme’s lineup of new accessories and this is one of the hottest items to get your hands on. This case for the iPhone 7/8 and 7/8 Plus comes in both Black and Red and is a featured item in Supreme’s Fall/Winter 2018 lineup.
The cases will retail for $128 if you can get your hands on them. Beyond the Supreme logo they carry all of the world-class Mophie features. Each case extends your iPhone’s battery life by up to 60% which gives it a total of up to 33-hours of battery life. This is a must-have for any avid traveler.
The ‘Setout Divide Backpack’ From Tortuga Backpacks
This is one of my favorite releases of 2018. The Setout Divide Backpack from Tortuga satisfies everything you’d need in a convertible backpack and then some. My favorite feature is the pocket that can be used to store folded clothing so that it can function as a weekender.
It can expand (from 26L to 34L) and function as a full-size carry-on bag (with adjustable/removable straps) for traveling but it’s also compact enough to function as your everyday backpack.
If you’re like me and would prefer to not own/need/carry two bags when one awesome bag will suffice, then this is the backpack for you.
Corkcicle Cigar Glass
Cigars and Bourbon go together like peanut butter and jelly or peas and carrots. It’s a natural harmony. The Corkcicle Cigar Glass has a carved out slot right there on the side of the glass to hold your stogie between puffs and as far as rocks glasses go this one’s very affordable. I’ve been a big fan of Corkcicle for years but haven’t owned these (yet) so I might just treat myself to a set this afternoon.
Highland Park 50-Year-Old
This is Highland Park’s oldest and most prestigious scotch expression in over a decade. The 50-year-old will be VERY HARD to come by because there are only 274 bottles available globally and 77 bottles available this Fall for purchase. If you’re even able to find a bottle it’ll set you back $15,000.
“From the casks’ surprising discovery to their royal-like transportation (the casks were required to travel separately) to the unification of the original 50-Year-Old (released in 2010) with the new 50-Year-Old, this rare vintage release encapsulates past and present, marrying the two in a legendary expression.”
As you can see above, the bottle is a work of art. This is something that can sit on your bar for a lifetime. For details on the 50-year-old you can follow the link below and visit Highland Park’s website.
Rancourt & Co. Traveler Ranger Moc in Toasted Rushmore
These are a literal work of art that you can wear on your feet. They are also some of the most comfortable shoes you’ll find sold anywhere on the planet. They are hadmade in Lewiston, Maine. Each pair features chestnut leather laces, antique brass eyelets, and an unlined interior for a lightweight ride.
‘Svord Peasant Knife’ With High Carbon Steel Blade And Wooden Handle
The Svord Peasant Knife is one of the most-trusted folding pocket knives around. Thanks to the lightweight wooden handle it only weighs 7oz and it has a blade that’ll stay sharp year after year.
2018 Casio Vintage Collection
The 2018 Casio Vintage Collection came out this week and I’m immediately in love. The best part? These sick watches retail for only $55-$65. They’re available on Casio’s website or at Macy’s (link below).
Ball and Buck Tervis Tumbler (Navy)
This combines two of my favorite brands: Ball and Buck + Tervis Tumbler. I’m a born and raised Floridian and the Tervis Tumbler factory’s just down the road from where I grew up. We always had these cups in the house and I still do to this day. Ball and Buck is all about American-made products and these cups feature their iconic Hunter logo. This is a perfect groomsmen gift, birthday gift, or Labor Day BBQ accessory!
TOGUARD Motion-Activated Wildlife Trail Camera 14MP 1080P
Got any critters out there going bump in the night? You can set up this motion-activated trail camera to figure out what’s getting into your trash cans. Or, with hunting season on the horizon you can set up this camera to start tracking movements and save yourself some time in finding wild game once Fall hits.
Got $15,000 laying around to spend on a unique bed? Do you enjoy falling asleep surrounded by fish? The aquarium bed from Acrylic Aquariums is just what the doctor ordered.
I’m not sure I’d ever be able to actually fall asleep in with this aquarium headboard because I’d always be watching the fish. And if the aquarium got the slightest bit dirty it’d drive me nuts. But man this would sick to throw in a guest room.
Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Blade and Bow won a gold medal at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and I could stop there but I’ll keep going. They use a ‘unique Solera System aging process’ which enables them to preserve whiskey stocks from the legendary Stitzel-Weller distillery which closed all the way back in 1992. The Solera System enables them to bottle some of the rarest Kuntucky bourbons around.
Preseasoned Cast-Iron Skillet
If you’re in the market for a skillet for some late-summer grillin’, this is a pretty good deal: The Utopia Kitchen pre-seasoned cast iron skillet is 40% off on Amazon right now. That means you can get one of the best cast iron skillets on Amazon for under $22.

The new Stan Smith Recon model is constructed from premium leathers throughout, featuring an all-leather upper, leather tongue and soft leather lining, with precise stitching details and subtle ornamentation such as the Stan Smith branding on the tongue embossed in gold, as well as the Stan Smith signature, featured on the sockliner cover.
Flowfold Vanguard Recycled Sailcloth Minimalist Slim Wallet
The Flowfold Minimalis Wallet is made from recycled sailcloth (the sails from sailboats) which means it’s about as weatherproof of a wallet as you’ll ever find. If you’re regularly around water (boating, lifeguard, fishing, etc) then this could be the perfect wallet for you.
Patagonia Tech Web Belt in Mojave Khaki
The Patagonia Tech Web Belt is perfect for any bro who lives an active lifestyle. It won’t shrink after getting wet like leather belts and it’s made from an extremely tough webbing that’s both lightweight and ideal for hiking/backpacking/traveling.
