Call it a personal bias, but there's nothing quite like restocking and refreshing your wardrobe. To be clear, this doesn't simply mean buying a new pair of jeans or copping a new T-shirt — the pursuit of a better, up-to-date closet includes any kind of gear you wear for any type of occasion. New running sneakers to shave minutes off your latest mile time? Count it. A refined set of rain gear for your next hiking trip? We know that it's just as important as buying a new office-ready dress shirt or sweater for your next night out. Take a look at some of the new apparel drops we're excited about (on top of some other key gear).
Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and news. We’d love to hear from you at email@example.com.

Veilance — part of the broader Arc'teryx brand family — stands as one of the premiere gorpcore brands on the market, filtering Arc'teryx's legacy as a top-class outfitter through a fashion-focused lens. While Veilance previously only catered to the men's market, a newly revealed women's offering opens the brand up to an even bigger audience.
We Knife Co. is consistently dropping new equipment, and the Primoris stands as an example of the brand's versatility. While the knife looks relatively minimal, this is intentional. The simplified design makes the Primoris grip-agnostic and easy to handle regardless of how you carry it. All in all, working with the 3.47-inch drop point blade is as easy as... well, slicing a hot knife through butter.
