13 ‘Things We Want’ This Week: American Flag Hunting Shirts, Hot Sauce And Bacon Making Kits And More!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Fourth of July is over but we celebrate our patriotism all year long. Ball and Buck is my favorite men’s outfitters in America, and every product they sell is made right here in the United States. The America Hunters Shirt is built for hunting but it’s perfect for dinner parties or any occasion that calls for a buttondown shirt. Do yourself a favor and follow that link below, check out some more of the products on Ball and Buck’s website, and come thank me in the comments for introducing you to the best clothes around
I know what you’re thinking ‘a wooden bike? what kind of hipster shit is this?’ Well, this bike’s awesome and you’d be a fool to think otherwise. This wooden bike is ultra-performance, and it’s handmade in Portland, Oregon by Renovo Bikes. You can pick up the kit for $4,250 or purchase a fully assembled model for $6,145.
Flat+Wide “Longbow” seat stays engineered to optimize vibration damping and stiffness. Top tube curved for smoothness, widened to increase lateral stiffness and tapered to reduce weight. Wider, flatter down tube enhances vertical compliance while reducing weight and increasing lateral stiffness. Lightweight, hollow chain stays27. 2mm seatpost for maximal compliance. Long wheelbase enhances stability and vertical compliance. Tapered headtube, PF30 bottom bracket, front and rear thru-axles all increase stiffness under power. Disc brakes offer superior stopping power on long descents. 28-38mm tire compatibility.
At that price, it’s definitely a ‘wish list’ item and not something I can ever see myself purchasing out of my own pocket, and that’s why it goes on the ‘Things We Want‘ list and not the ‘Things Cass Is Buying For Himself’ list.
Want to make your own bacon? Hell yes you do. Bacon is one of if not the greatest foods on the planet. You can make and season your own bacon at home with the Original Bacon Kit that has everything you need (Curing Bag, Pink Curing Salt, Premium Maple Sugar and Thermometer).
This everyday carry money clip is minimalist and industrial in design, and I mean that in the best of ways. It can hold 5 credit cards (and/or cash), and if features a discretely hidden pocket knife. Sure, you can’t bring the Gerber GDC Money Clip through airport security with you because of the built-in knife but this is still my favorite money clip on the market right now.
Don’t bring all that sand from the beach back to the car/house with you. It’s a pain in the ass to clean it out of the truck and it’s an easily avoidable mess. This sand-repellant beach blanket/towel will only set you back a couple of bucks, it’s quick drying, and eco-friendly.
We’re in the dog days of Summer. If you need a hobby to keep you busy then check this out. Maybe the bacon kid above isn’t your style but hot sauce is. They claim that you can ‘be the boss of your own sauce’ with this kit which contains the following:
“3 Glass Woozy Bottles, 4 Squeeze Bottles, a 2-inch funnel, an Apple Cider Vinegar bottle, a zipped pouch of Spice Blend, 2 pairs of gloves, 5 pH strips. Also, 3 woozy reducers, 3 black caps, 4 squeeze bottle tops with red cap, Ancho Pasillas, Chipotle and Habanero Pepper bags – instruction card, an open/close pouch of Ghost Pepper & 7 label stickers.”

I’ve been using Anthony products for about 4 years now and I can say, with certainty, that they are the best on the market. They’re built for men and ‘borrowed by women’, but these are all products with male skin needs in mind. The face wash, body wash, and shaving cream are staples in my life and this travel kit has those products in more. Want to treat yourself to something nice and out of the ordinary? Buy this now and you’ll thank me in a few days when this arrives, I’m certain of it.
Would you ever see the swagless, gingham shirt-loving metrosexual lames at GQ and Esquire rocking a pair of these? Hell no. These are Bro shades, dammit. They scream “I DRINK MONSTER ENERGY DRINKS AND VODKA AT LAKE HAVASU!” They scream “I OWN A FUCKING JET SKI AND ORDER THE BACON JAM SLIDERS AT TWIN PEAKS!” These are shades with attitude. Not prissy urban douche shades. Shades that say “I will drink ten thousand beers in my pontoon boat then RKO you outta nowhere like Randy Orton.” They say you DGAFOS like Kenny Motherfucking Powers and keep your eyes shielded from the summer sun. Wear them to a monster car rally, a NASCAR race, SEACRETS Jamaica USA. Wherever such eyewear is more than appropriate.
The Philips Norelco OneBlade was featured earlier this week in our roundup of the ‘15 Best Electric Razors Under $100‘. If you haven’t checked that list out yet I’d highly suggest giving that link a click. In the meantime, I’m a huge proponent of the Philips Norelco OneBlade for keeping the lines tight.
How many times have you gone to plug your charger into your phone only to be completely denied? A lot? Well, struggle no longer: the world’s first fully reversible Micro USB cable is here.

Portable Bluetooth speakers sometimes succeed more at being portable than being powerful music makers. G-BOOM is the exception. This Bluetooth powerhouse can deliver quality, loud sound for up to 6 hours without an outlet in sight.
