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.
Hand Sewn Sweatshirt from Ace Rivington
This one from Ace Rivington is made with your comfort and style in mind. Inspired by a swatch Beau Lawrence came across that he basically wanted to live in, each of these sweatshirts is soft and warming. The yarn spinning, sewing, and washing were all done in Los Angeles but the feel is like something you stole from your dad back in the day.
Best Made Co
Lip Balm Designed for the Swedish Army
If you haven’t noticed, every woman you know is currently carrying around an orb of lip balm. Those are great if you’re a woman and can toss one in your purse, but if you’re a guy, that would be one funky bulge in your pocket. A better alternative is Hudsalve, the lip balm designed for the Swedish Military.
Slow Watches Display 24Hrs in A Day
Have you ever taken a nap, woke up and looked at your watch and thought you were crazy late for work only to realize it was 8 at night and not 8 in the morning? That quick sense of panic would never happen if you owned a Slow Watch.

Hex-o-Matic Pen & Pencil
Both the Hex-o-matic Pencil and the Hex-o-matic Pen are reminiscent of the kinds of writing instruments your dad would keep in his shirt pocket back in the day. Slick but substantial. /td>
Sosu Whiksey Barrel Aged Sriracha
You could whiskey barrel-age a foot and we’d eat it. So, when you decide to barrel-age something we already love with an immense passion, well, grab us a damn bib already. Sosu has taken our beloved spicy condiment, sriracha, and aged it in whiskey barrels for 1-3 months to give the sauce an interesting oaky and rich character that you won’t find in your standard Thai chili sauce.
‘Paper’ Makes Faceook Look Amazing
Most news from Facebook makes users squirm. Changes to your news feed and new ads aren’t exactly met with open arms. The latest announcement from Facebook, however, should be. “Paper” is Facebook’s new reader app for iOS that combines stories from your feed along with content it curates and delivers it all in a stunning package.
Rock Paper Robot
Float Table Will Mess With Your Head
Constructed out of a series of magnetized wooden cubes, the sections of the table appear to float above and to the sides of each other. The cubes are held into place by steel cables (don’t want parts of your table shooting off) and the whole piece is responsive to human touch.
Google Glass No Longer Looks Ridiculous
As cool as Google Glass is, few people want to look like Geordi from Star Trek in public all the time. Well, Google may have actually solved this problem with the release of four new frames that look more stylish than futuristic.
