Bookmark it to peruse over Sunday football and start your Monday completely up to speed. Here’s to another fantastic week.
Drinks by the DRAM Advent Calendar
A boozy Advent calendar –great for anyone thinking of start (or expanding) a spirits collection. Available spirits include whiskey, mezcal, rum and many more.
Brick Vintage Flip Clock
A great vintage accent to any room, plus one less reason to consult a screen.
James Brand The County Knife

As part of a new partnership with the Brien Holden Vision Institute and Bono, Revo will donate $10 up to $10 million from every pair of sunglasses that they sell. Our favorites are the new Buzz in Honey Matte Tortoise.
Common Projects x Unis Achilles LowJust in time for the holidays comes this collaboration, which commemorates Unis’s 15th anniversary. The silhouette arguably draws inspiration from the Adidas Stan Smith, with the green details in the colorway reflected in the new shoe’s “Unis green” lining, a deviation from the Achilles’ standard all-white scheme. Solid construction matches the simple aesthetic, with a stitch-reinforced rubber cup sole providing stability and a Nappa leather upper for equal parts class and comfort. These’ll make quite a replacement for someone’s summer knock-arounds.
Selvadge Recycled Denim
New Yorkers: if you’re all good for footwear, consider some jeans, and check out Selvadge’s pop-up shop in Brooklyn from December 4 through 18.
Parabo Wood Rails 36-Inch Poster Holders
Still holding on to a couple old posters from college? See if Parabo’s three-foot-wide oak rails can’t breathe some new life into them.

Ministry of Supply 3D Suit
Meet the next evolution of suiting, courtesy of the technical clothing geniuses at Ministry of Supply. Their new “3D Suit” is made from a soft and flexible material that’s almost foam-like to the touch, then molded three-dimensionally around the contours of the body to provide a level of comfort that rivals a sweatsuit. It’s also machine washable and moisture wicking, while still boasting the tailored fit your job and personal style demand.
Manfrotto D1 Backpack for DJI Phantom
Manfrotto’s new D1 backpack is designed specifically to fit your DJI Phantom drone. It can fit safely inside the pack with its propellors detached, but also has a quick attachment point outside for easy transport while its propellors are attached. A top compartment fits a DSLR for another angle and the inclusion of a dedicated laptop and tablet compartment means photo and video editing are never far away.
Stance’s new underwear line follows the same mantra as their socks: comfort, function and bold designs.

Stone Stochasticity Project Grainiac
The latest beer to come out of Stone’s Stochasticity Project, Grainiac is brewed with a diverse malt bill that includes millet and buckwheat for depth of flavor.
Triumph Speed Triple S and R
The latest from Triumph, a big favorite of ours, offers an overhauled 1,050cc three-cylinder engine with improvements to the ECU, cylinder head design, combustion chamber and more — all adding up to 10 percent better fuel efficiency and boosted torque. Throw in five riding modes with variant throttle responses, ABS settings and traction control, and you’ll feel freer on the road than ever before.
The North Face HyperAIR Jacket
For those on foot, North Face’s newest jacket features Gore-Tex’s latest innovation known as GORE-TEX® Active, which boasts optimized breathability in addition the waterproofness you’ve come to expect from the name. Looking for it starting on December 15.

With their first razor, Aesop paid particular attention to the oft-overlooked handle, which is high density and features a hand-polished and triple-plated collar.
ZB Savoy Pocket Squares
Founded as a manufacturer of bow ties, ZB Savoy also makes pocket squares that look good with or without any accompaniment from your neck region. Additionally, if you missed out on Giving Tuesday, you can donate to the Prostate Cancer Foundation from their site.
Flicks Mobile Projector with Speakers
This recently funded project gives the projector another leg up over TVs: built-in speakers. The projector itself is wireless and features 720p HD LED imagery.
Tumi Pax Patrol Jacket
Tumi is a brand known around the world for their superior luggage. And now they’ve taken their expertise in travel to make the Tumi Pax jacket. Constructed with high-tech materials and water-resistant fabrics, the Tumi Pax also easily converts into a neck pillow via a hidden pouch in the collar. Whether you’re traveling or having a night out on the town, you can always be ready to play and pause with this travel essential.
Discommon The Straight RazorThe straight razor has been a relatively unchanged product for decades in a space that takes tradition seriously. Discommon’s new straight razor, however, goes against the grain. Its handle is available in either aerospace-grade carbon fiber or medical-grade titanium and its blade is hand ground by Joseph Bowen and made from high-chromium-content steel. Only 20 examples have been made — 10 in carbon fiber and 10 in titanium. As an added bonus, each razor comes with a custom-made leather felt-lined zip-up case made by This Is Ground.
