On the Radar
Reveals, New Launches and Gear
Stance Official NBA All-Star 2016 On-Court Socks
Stance has released the official on-court sock for the 2016 NBA All-Star Game. The socks are identical to those worn on the court, and are perfect for the ultra-fan who wants to dress like the pros.
Rivay Shaw Quilted Herringbone Wool Vest
Performance meets subtle style in this 100 percent lambswool vest. It’s fully lined, with a 100 percent waxed-cotton yoke, plenty of concealed pockets and more.
Cadence Nolan Hooded Fleece
Features like vents and a nylon chest yoke for wind protection make this understated fleece a good option for winter cycling.
Taylormade OS and OS CB Putters
The latest putters from Taylormade feature large sweet spots and a high moment of inertia, allowing for more accurate putts.
Shockoe Atelier x American Trench Moleskin Jeans
Based on Shockoe’s tried and true denim jean silhouette, their new collaboration with American Trench is made from cotton moleskin that blocks out wind and keeps in heat.
Nike Metcon 2
Available now, Nike’s new Metcon 2 is the ultimate shoe for the athlete that goes for a total body workout while in the gym.
Ursa Major 4-in-1 Essential Face Tonic (Ships Free Until 2/1)
The Swiss army knife of skin care, Ursa Major’s 4-in-1 Essential Face Tonic contains 33 natural ingredients like aloe, birch sap, willow bark and radish root to clean, exfoliate, soothe and hydrate your skin. It’s the ultimate all-in-one product for folks who want clear, healthy skin — minus all the fuss. Use it after shaving or any time you want an instant, refreshing clean. The tonic comes in a flip cap (for use as a splash, or to soak a cotton round for deep cleansing), spray cap (nice after shaving or at the office), or in individually wrapped wipes (perfect for your back pocket or travel bag). However you cut it, this stuff will earn its moniker as a dopp kit essential. Plus, Gear Patrol readers get FREE shipping site-wide at Ursa Major through January 31 with code “secretweapon” (valid for standard US shipping only).
You’ve been playing Solitaire since 1995. Time to switch it up. Churchill Solitaire adds a second deck of cards, a “Devil’s Six” row of cards and timed scoring. Currently available on iOS; Android version coming soon.
Porter x Casio G-Shock
The military look of this G-Shock, a limited-edition offering celebrating Porter’s 80th anniversary, harkens back to Porter’s TANKER series. Available at Porter stockists.
’47 x Benny Gold x Black Scale Superbowl 50 Collection
Football’s biggest event ever calls for a big collection. 13 pieces by Benny Gold featuring classic iconography and 13 from Black Scale honoring the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders give you more than a few options.
Stewart/Stand Stainless Steel Wallets
These stainless steel wallets come in a variety of textures and builds, are made from post-consumer recycled materials and feature RFID-blocking materials.
Power Toothpaste Caffeinated Toothpaste
Y’know — if you’re curious. The perk (sorry) of this toothpaste is that it applies caffeine directly to the bloodstream via the gums (in case you’re too impatient for coffee).
Nisolo’s new Lockwood boot is inspired by the classic American trench boot, but with some stylistic upgrades. Its leather upper and calfskin interior lining make it comfortable for all-day wear, while still being more than presentable for work. If ever they do need to be repaired, the Lockwoods are fully re-soleable, so it’s easy to breath new life into them after years of wear. Each pair is handmade and ethically produced in Peru.
Hydro Flask 32- and 64-Ounce Growlers
New for 2016, Hydro Flask will be releasing a newly designed growler. The new design features the same durability and benefits of the old version, with a newly designed cap that holds carbonation better and a carrying handle.
Founders Brewing Mango Magnifico
If you are looking for a beer to fill your new Hydro Flask with, Founders’s new Mango Magnifico is a fine choice, brewed with mangoes and a touch of habanero pepper.
TaylorMade M2 Driver
Building on the success of the M1, TaylorMade have released the new M2 which is constructed from ultra-light, ultra-thin and high-strength Carbon Composite — which makes it even easier to send one deep down the fairway.
Corknet Ping Pong Set
This piece available exclusively at the MoMA store works as a trivet to hold medium-sized pots and, as soon as dinner is over, transforms into a net for a quick game of ping pong.
Duke Cannon Winter Is Coming Defense Kit
Winter can be harsh on your lips and hands, making them cracked and dried out. Stay ahead of the game with Duke Cannon’s Winter Is Coming Defense Kit.
Adidas Originals EQT Support 93
The iconic Adidas triple stripe has arguably never been more in style. So the brand is upgrading the OG design, original colorways and materials intact, with the addition of a BOOST midsole. The midsole was designed with athletics in mind, a step away from EVA construction utilizing thousands of thermoplastic polyurethane pebbles for a springier and more cushioned step, wherever you plan on taking them.
Helly Hansen Spring/Summer ’16 Rainwear
Giant snowstorm notwithstanding, things are still mostly wet here in NYC. So we’ve got our eyes on Helly Hansen’s new line — especially the duffel coat, clad in custom-laminated canvas, designed in tribute to the modern racing yacht.
Olympus has revived a classic design in the form of the new PEN-F. Behind the retro-inspired aesthetics you’ll find a 20-megapixel Live MOS sensor, a high resolution 3-inch LCD, 5-axis image stabilization and full 1080p HD video capture at 60fps. It also boasts being the first Olympus PEN camera with a built-in viewfinder.
Word Notebooks x Declan Flora
One of our favorite notebook brands, Word borrowed classic patterns from Declan, a pocket-square manufacturer, and the results are stunning. The first 60 orders will include a pocket square.
The DeLorean is Back, Maybe
There are enough Back to the Future references to fill a hundred of these stories, but we’ll cut right to the chase. The DeLorean is back, maybe. Thanks to new legislative changes that exempt small volume car makers from general safety requirements the DeLorean Motor Company, focused primarily on repairing and restorations to date, could theoretically turn their warehouse of parts into 300+ “new” DeLoreans each year for an estimated $100,000 — all of which we’re sure will hit 88 mph.
Lapierre Aerostorm DRS
Lapierre’s new time-trial bike is one of the lightest on the market, looks mean, and, judging by who road tested it (Steve Morabito and Thibaut Pinot), blazingly fast. Available this Autumn.
Carton Brewing x Barrier Brewing SS C.R.E.A.M.
Carton Brewing knows a thing or two about cream ales, and Barrier Brewing has hoppy beers down to a science. So when they decided to get together to brew a collaboration beer, it only seemed natural to marry the two. The resulting ale is called SS C.R.E.A.M., and it is a Hoppy Imperial Cream Ale. The name and can design were inspired by the one and only Wu-Tang Clan, with touches like a banner in the background that reads “Bring Da Ruckus.” It will be available later this year in 16-ounce cans.
The latest release in Fluance’s Fi line of speakers is the Fi70. The speaker is an all-in-one unit, with dual eight-inch subwoofers, five-inch woven glass fiber midrange drivers and one-inch neodymium tweeters.
Johnston & Murphy Karnes
Walking around in the slush and muck requires a certain type of boot, one that will keep your foot dry while still staying stylish. Johnston & Murphy’s Karnes is the perfect combination of winter performance and style.
Kelty Versant Backpack
The backpack version of Kelty’s new Versant line is 25 liters in size, has a ventilated back panel, is constructed from water-resistant fabric and has a built-in laptop pocket that allows you to access your Macbook without digging into the main compartment.
Dynafit Beast Hoodie
Available in winter of 2016/17, the new Beast Hoodie from Dynafit features a hybrid fleece construction packed with Polartec Alpha insulation.
Rock & Pebble H Block Set
Sometimes adults need to play with building blocks too. With Rock & Pebble’s H Block set, you can feel free to leave them out on the table as a stylish centerpiece.
