Alright, bros, it’s time again for the weekly ‘Things We Want’ feature. 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 email@example.com.
I’ve been a big fan of Mack Weldon for several years now. In my opinion, they make the best no-show socks and men’s boxer briefs on the market. So when I saw that they were launching a line of boardshorts/swim trunks I was intrigued. I scooped up a pair this week and can tell you that you bros will love these. They are comfortable, fit in all the right ways, and they look pretty f’n stylish. These, my friends, are a great line of boardshorts. There are 2 styles, trunks and boardshorts, so be sure to check both out!
Here’s what Mack Weldon’s VP of Design had to say about this project:
“Mack Weldon Swim was a true team effort. Some of us loved active swimwear, but it never looked so great out of the water. Some of us loved traditional swimwear, but conceded that the fabrics were stuck in the past. Much like we approach other great menswear basics, our goal was to combine all the latest technology with classic style. We started by developing a unique fabric that is ultra quick-dry, lightweight, and has added stretch for performance. Details like bonded seams, zip pockets, and a premium micro-mesh lining take function to the next level. Our innovative Flex Fit waist was created for a clean, modern look — so you can go from ocean, to pool, to poolside drinks with ease.”

Adidas has truly outdone themselves this time. With the all new FORGEFIBER line they’ve created the PERFECT running shoe. Both stylish and functional, FORGEFIBER has pioneerred a new design process which takes the body’s natural movement into account. FORGEFIBER uses fewer materials than previous lines and the result is the best running shoe I’ve seen in years.
“You can mimic nature visually and just create something that looks natural, or you could actually study the science of it. It looks often quite random, even though there is an order to it. That randomness builds in strength.” Jon Munns, Sr. Design Dir. Future, adidas

Designed utilizing multi-weave technology, the Quicksand Mat was created for staying sand-free during relaxing days at the beach. Sand falls right through this mat and doesn’t come back up, so you don’t have to worry about ruining your towel when you kick sand on it by mistake. The patented multi-weave layers trap sand underneath, ensuring a sand-free day at the beach, while the mat is waterproof so you can fall asleep and not ruin it when the tide comes in.
Your old man loves complaining about how things aren’t made as well as they were in his day. Now you can call “bullshit.”
This retro cooler from Coleman is the same one your old man and his bros would drag to the beach and BBQs. In fact, it might be EVEN BETTER than his old cooler.
It’s large enough to hold 85 cans and tall enough to hold 2-liter bottles upright, so you’ll have plenty of space for refreshments for a whole group of people. Refreshments = beer.
