Birch-Box-Mad-Men-Gear-Patrol

Mad Men Birchbox
It’s the beginning of the end of Mad Men in just over a week, and Birchbox is cashing in with a package inspired by the show. New subscribers to the monthly toiletry curation and delivery service will receive a period-inspired box; along with basics like shaving cream, razors and aftershave, each box may include a pair of boxer briefs, body wash, cologne or lotion. No commemorative pack of Lucky Strikes, though. $20/month
Interior-Define-Gear-Patrol

Interior Define Furniture
They don’t have paisleys, but Interior Define’s distinctly modern sofas would be all too appropriate for a Mad Men viewing party. The company’s furniture is made to order, and like the new crop of mattress manufacturers, costs are reduced at a rate of nearly 50 percent by selling direct to consumers online. interiordefine.com
McIntosh-C22-Gear-Patrol

McIntosh C22 Preamp
Further down the retro rabbit hole is McIntosh Laboratory, a lauded manufacturer of audio equipment since 1949. Their newly revamped C22 preamp, despite its throwback style, delivers sound at a 0.08 percent ultra low distortion rate across 10 input channels (8 stereo inputs, 2 phono; 6 unbalanced, 4 balanced) and at an impedance of 20K ohms. It’s a fine addition to any home audio setup, retro or modern. mcintoshlabs.com
Boodles-Gin-Gear-Patrol

Boodles Gin
Gin is as retro as spirits get, so Boodles benefits from hundreds of years of boozy advancement with their well-honed recipe of nutmeg, sage, rosemary and more, foregoing citrus botanicals for an extra dry product. boodlesgin.com
Pax-Ploom-2-Gear-Patrol

PAX 2 Vaporizer
Some vices are better off modernized. The monolithic PAX 2 vaporizer improves on the old PAX with a lip-sensing mouthpiece that adjusts its according to skin temperature, a brushed anodized aluminum shell, a larger oven for continuous heating and a vapor path constructed with medical-grade components. $280
Hi-Rise-Apple-Watch-Gear-Patrol

HiRise Apple Watch Stand
Timekeeping luddites and tech zealots will argue over the Apple Watch for days, but that won’t stop Twelve South. The Apple accessory designer’s HiRise for Apple Watch is a magnetic, charging bedside stand for the new timepiece designed to show off its slick/atrocious design (depends on who you ask) at a tilted angle and prevent strap damage with rounded silicone edges. $50
Flat design style modern vector illustration concept set of mobile phone messaging, sms communication with blank speech bubble, new mail message interface template form on smartphone. Isolated on stylish color background.
