New & Noteworthy Releases
The search for quality, unique products that match your taste and personality doesn’t have to absorb your weekends. Bespoke Post is well versed in unique gear, and they’ll do all the heavy lifting to send you a box of cool, interesting products every month. And, yes, their product and brand suggestions are great — we know from experience — but they make it an even better, more customizable experience by letting you enhance your box with equally cool products from their online shop. For example, let’s say you select that you like EDC gear on your profile, they’ll send you a box with a stainless steel money clip, flashlight, and durable pocket knife–you can then add a wallet, watch or anything else to the box and it all ships for free. Most importantly, if you don’t like something they’ve sent, you can swap it for another box, skip that month’s box, or mail it back for a full refund.

Topo Athletic Magnifly 2 Running Shoe
All activities are subject to trends and running is by no means immune. Two of the sport’s most popular movements — low-drop and maximalism — are mashed together in Topo Athletic’s latest road running shoe. The Magnifly 2 features the wide toe box that has become Topo’s hallmark as well as a zero-drop stack height for more natural running, but it also comes with 25mm of cushioning for runners that want to nullify some of the impact. — Tanner Bowden
Master & Dynamic “The Greene Street Collection”
Special for the holidays, Master & Dynamic’s The Greene Street Collection features some the company’s over-ear and on-ear headphones in new camo, black and olive colorways.

Buck Mason Five Gauge Fisherman Rib Sweater
California-based Buck Mason offers a range of classic sweaters for the cooler weather. A standout is the Fisherman Rib Sweater, a 100 percent wool piece with a traditional design. Unlike many fisherman-style sweaters, this has a lighter gauge which makes it a great layering piece for the winter months. The sweater is made overseas, but it still has the quality and price-point associated with the brand. — John Zientek
