New & Noteworthy Releases
Toad&Co Malamute Quarter Zip Sweater
You know what bad sweaters are like — scratchy, stuffy looking and either too thick or too thin for swings in temperatures. Toad&Co’s Malamute Quarter Zip solves all of these common layering issues. It’s made from super fine, non-mulesed Lambswool, knitted in a nubby blackberry stitch. The combination is soft, incredibly textured and maximizes all of the temperature regulating benefits of natural wool. It’s also warm enough to wear on its own but still slim enough to layer under a jacket. Choose from three available in color options of charcoal heather, deep navy, or jeep heather. Our favorite touch? The color matched elbow patches.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Limited Edition
Ahead of SIHH 2018, Audemars Piguet has rolled out a new limited edition of the Royal Oak Offshore for the model’s 25th anniversary. The new reference is meant to be a recreation of the 1993 original: it has the same stainless steel case design, a “Petite Tapisserie” blue dial and matching blue pushers and crown — all nearly identical to the original. — Andrew Connor
The Hudson Backpack by ONA
This sophisticated backpack is an amalgamation of leather, waxed canvas, and brass. It has a sleeve for a 13-inch laptop and a removable padded compartment for your DSLR. And, it’s damn pretty. — Tucker Bowe
Ray-Bans Aviator 1937
Ray-Bans newest limited edition looks to bring back the details of its first aviator sunglasses, launched way back in the 1930s. It includes vintage-inspired details like the original drop-shaped green crystal G-15 lenses set against gold-tone frames, as well as mother of pearl accents on the nose pads and temple tips. — Andrew Connor
Bose Noise-Making Sleepbuds
These are Bose’s first pair of wireless earbuds designed to help you sleep. They have the same noise-isolating eartips found in Bose’s other earphones, like the QC30s ($300), and combine that with a sound-masking technology; it’s noise-canceling, but instead of working with your music Bose says it works with sounds specifically engineered to “sooth” you. The Sleepbuds work with Bose Sleep App, which will ensure that you still hear alarms. The product is being crowdfunded right now, but you can expect to it be available in early(ish) 2018. — Tucker Bowe

It’s made from super durable Cordura nylon and insulated with KODENSHIDOWN (72% down, 20% viscose rayon, 8% feather). It also comes with its own stuff sack for travel. Our favorite part?

The North Face Base Camp 50L Duffel
Save $30:To call this thing a “duffel” would be like calling an armored truck a ‘tin wheelie box.’ Its 1000-denier laminated nylon shell is extremely strong and weather-resistant, and it easily converts from a shoulder bag to a backpack. Don’t call it a duffel. Call it an apocalypse-proof gear hauler.— Michael Finn

Our Favorite Basic T-Shirts Are on Sale Now
Along with socks and underwear, the t-shirt is the foundation staple of any basic wardrobe. But unlike those necessaries that go hidden beneath boots and jeans, the t-shirt stands above and on its own, in plain view for all to see. A t-shirt can make a statement, and what that statement says is up to the wearer. It could say, “I like my shirts the same as my hotdogs — bought in packs of ten and covered in mustard,” or it could say something more refined. Something like, “I value sustainable materials and recognize smart style cues and put a premium on comfort.” It could even add in a knowing wink, because right now Jungmaven’s extra-soft tees, made with sustainably grown hemp and organic cotton, are currently on sale for up to 48% off.
Amazon Music Unlimited
$1 FOR FIRST 3 MONTHS:
It’s a great time to subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited, Amazon’s streaming competitor to Apple Music and Spotify. If you sign up between now and December 23, you get the first three months of streaming for just $1. Normally it’s $1 for the the first month. After that you play the normal rate: $8/month for Amazon Prime members and $10/month for non-Prime members. It’s a solid deal, and it’s worth mentioning that, at the time of writing this, Amazon Music Unlimited is the only streaming service that works with Alexa-voice commands on the Sonos One. — Tucker Bowe

It has a matte finish, waterproof aqua guard coil zippers and a large main compartment to store necessities for a few days on the road.

Big Deal: Save $300 on Dyson’s Year-Round Humidifier
Most humidifier’s are one-season splurges that sit in storage most of the year. Dyson’s AM10 humidifier, however, doubles as a fan for four-season use. Though it normally costs $500 online, you can score a refurbished model on eBay for just $200 (60% off) with the code PSHOPEARLY.
Save $120 on Yeti’s Hopper 20
If you’ve ever considered picking up one of Yeti’s nuke-proof soft-side Hopper coolers, now’s the time to buy. Today on eBay, you can pick up the Hopper 20 for $120 off. Even though Yeti released a newer version called the Hopper Two, the original Hopper 20 is still a fan favorite and worth pulling out your credit card for — especially at this price.
