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.
Worn & Wound
Worn & Wound Watch Folds
These Watch Folds from Worn & Wound do the trick and look good in the process. Each is made from 18 oz waxed filter twill canvas with an ultra suede lining throughout and heavyweight Italian leather used for the binding and strap. All of that, along with an extra level of padding, will keep your timepieces in great shape when you’re on your next trip.
Buck 941 Travelmate Kit Chocolate Paperstone Knife
The Travelmate is built on three parts: an antimicrobial, injection molded sheath, a detachable fork and a 4.87″ blade knife with dishwasher-safe Paperstone handle. In addition to being useful for delivering your food into your mouth, the fork also works as a bottle opener, can opener, flathead screwdriver and grill scraper. The real magic of the Travelmate is in the 410HC stainless steel knife. The almost 10″ long knife is good for cutting, but it’s designed in such a way that it’s also good for spreading butter or cheese and, more importantly, for use as a spatula.
RPMWEST Japanese Selvedge Jeans
RPMWEST is back with five new denim options: The Japanese Classic #4508 (140z sanforized, the same fabric APC uses), The Deep Indigo #1380 (13oz dark indigo), The Light Gray #4539 (13oz sanforized light gray denim), The Rich Indigo #6782 (12oz deep dyed ), and The Black #6782 (15oz black on black). Each pair is limited to a production run of 200 or less, and backed by a guarantee that includes free repairs.
Cool Material Shop
Brass Playing Dice
If you want to add some machine shop style to your next dice game, this is the perfect way to do so. Each of these sets of solid brass dice were machined in the USA exclusively for Cool Material. The ½” brass dice are both solid in feel and are a gigantic step up from the plastic ones that came with Yahtzee. They’ll age gracefully over time and develop a nice patina from all the times you shake them in your fist.
This New Gillette Razor is Like The Dyson of Shaving
The Dyson Ball vacuum lets you effortlessly clean up your pad with just the turn of your wrist. The new Gillette Fusion ProGlide with FlexBall Technology does the same for your face. Instead of simply slapping on more blades, Gillette added a sort of roller ball that lets the razor swivel around your face as you shave.
The Black Tux
The Black Tux
The Black Tux is looking to fix a lot of the problems that come with tuxedo rentals. Besides paying less for a better tux, you’ll also be able to do everything from the convenience of home. Simply build your tux or select from a pre-designed one, get measured (they’ll cover the cost if you want to go to a tailor), and your tux will arrive a week before your event. When you’re done, just put it back in the mail.
PaperSync uses state-of-the-art scanner hardware and software to create full-color, hi-res images of all your notes. They’ll shoot you over a PDF after they’re finished, and you’ll never have to worry about a flooded basement taking out years of your brilliant ideas.
Rock-Hard Canadian Maple Headphones
Crafted from locally grown Canadian Maple, each pair is durable, solid, and provides a unique detailed tone. The density of the wood used offers naturally good insulation from outside noises, kind of like an organic noise-cancelling system. The hardware is made from lightweight aircraft-grade aluminum for a more durable system than anything made from just plastic components, and the ear pads are designed using natural leather. Of course, all this wouldn’t really matter if the headphones sounded like shit, but the No Comply headphones sound rich, engaging, and perfect for all genres of music.
