New & Noteworthy Releases


Magnanni Reus Wingtip Boot
In Spain’s La Mancha, one of the world’s few single family-owned-and-operated artisan shoemakers is carrying on three generations of tradition. Magnanni is, for the Blanco family and its skilled artisans, not a profession, but a way of life. Magnanni’s mastery is seen in the Reus Wingtip Boot: hand-picked leather from the finest tanneries; the brand’s signature hand-dyed marbled finish; a broken-in feel straight out of the box, thanks to the collar’s tumbled calfskin leather; and recessed edges for a low-profile silhouette.

Gnarbox 256GB
Gnarbox, a portable backup storage drive and editing system for photographers on the go, now comes in a 256GB capacity. It’s the first major update to the device, which launched last year. Additionally, Gnarbox now works in tandem with Adobe Lightroom Mobile and iOS 11’s new Files app, allowing photographers a seamless mobile editing workflow. Gnarbox’s ultimate goal is to effectively eliminate the need for a laptop to edit and store photos while traveling; the new 256GB version is one step closer to achieving it. — Michael Finn

Saber Power Bank by Romeo Power Technology
The Saber is a serious portable power bank with 86 watt-hours of power. It’s also pretty hefty, at 2.2 pounds. According to Romeo Power Technology — an energy storage company founded by engineers and designers from SpaceX, Tesla, Samsung and Amazon — the Saber is powerful enough to charge most smartphones 10 times over, and laptops twice over. It has two USB-A ports, one USB-C port, and an AC outlet, meaning it’ll work with most of your devices. It also has an IP67 waterproof rating. The Saber is available for preorder today for $199; if you order it next month it’ll cost $299. — Tucker Bowe

Orage Newton Jacket
When it comes to cold weather layering, down jackets are, without a doubt, an essential. But despite the vast number of available options, most of these coats rely on all the same design cues, so choosing one often comes down to a matter of brand loyalty and color preference. The recently updated Newton offers a stylish alternative; it’s a 480-fill duck down jacket with a variety of geometric baffles instead of the horizontal tubes characteristic of down products. It’s also reversible, and the interior lining looks just as good — and is just as weatherproof — as the exterior. — Tanner Bowden
