This weekly feature is a round-up, in conjunction with our friend Tim over at Cool Material, of the hot new products appearing online this week. From fashion tips to cool gadgets and gear, take a look at your new obsessions.
Everlane Lightweight Navy Bomber Jacket
The Everlane bomber, is made of a water-resistant, 1.9oz fabric with a mesh lining and ribbing in all the right places (cuffs, waist, collar). The two angled pockets in front make it exceptionally easy to hide your hands from the elements, and the tailored back yolk makes sure it doesn’t fit like every other lightweight, water-resistant jacket you already own. The weather might be taking a turn for the balmy right now, but that doesn’t need you’re not going to need some sort of protection for those late nights on the beach and random torrential downpours.
Bright Colored Tsovet Watches
Available in a pastel face shade of blue, orange and what we’re calling lemon and lime, each of the watches features a 42mm single piece case, luminous hands and markers, 200 meter depth rating, 3 hand Japanese Miyota quartz movement and a black rubberized band. The black rubber keeps everything just muted enough that the bright pastel faces pop because of the contrast. And since they’re rubber straps and water rated, you don’t have to worry about sunscreen, surf or sweat screwing up your timepiece–just wipe it down with a towel.
Converse Jack Purcells Washed in Salt
You could wear them in the salt water at the beach. You could wash them. You could bleach them. In fact, everything you’re not supposed to do to your selvedge denim you can do to your canvas sneakers, and they’ll look better for it. Or you could just pick up a pair of these new Converse Jack Purcell salt washed stripes in red or blue and immediately get down to the business of being outside.

Word Notebooks Indigo
Long associated with just denim, indigo has recently popped up in so many pieces of clothing and decor. Japanese fabrics in these shades of blue have been used to craft everything from sharp-looking scarves to sneakers and button-downs. Often with simple white lines, dots, and other small details, these fabrics are the inspiration for the latest series of Word. Notebooks.
Ping Pong Desk Table
The You and Me ping pong table from RS Barcelona is not only a standard size table tennis table, but it also features storage so it can double as your new workspace or even dining area. Designed for indoor or outdoor use, the table features a hidden side drawer to store the net, balls, and paddles when it’s time to get cracking on those TPS reports.
Marbel Electric Skateboard
Clocking in at under 10 lbs, Marbel is the world’s lightest electric skateboard. It lets your arms take a breather when you’re not riding. The 2+ horsepower motor can help you hit speeds of up to 20 mph and you can control the braking and everything from a phone app or with a handheld remote. You’ll get about 10 miles on a full charge, so it’s ideal for using around a small town or in the city. If you want an electric deck that don’t need to rip bicep curls to carry around, Marbel is the way to go.

Selvedge Denim Pencil Case
Made from the spare selvedge denim left over from the production of their jeans, each case is 8 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ x 2″ and made with complimentary orange accents and a full length zipper. You can use it for pens, pencils, markers and other writing implements, but it will also work for chargers, cables, USB drives, lighters and just about everything else you need to carry. You could even use it as a tiny dopp kit thanks to the loop on top.
The Woolpack Merino T Shirt
The 100% Merino Wool T-Shirt is super soft, temperature regulating, and it wicks away moisture to keep you comfortable whether you’re working out or just outside on a hot day. Every shirt they make is water repellent and is anti-odor so you can wear it a few times between washes without worrying about being that guy on the subway. It’s a nice upgrade from the 20-pack of Hanes you were considering.
