Clothing brands (and even multi-brand clothing stores) do collaborations all the time; at this point, it's part and parcel of the fashion business. We all expect these partnerships to center around some interesting apparel, but what if we told you that clothing brands are pivoting into the wine and spirits spaces? Announced earlier this week and expanding its offering later in November, Patagonia's Provisions team has launched a suite of wines, ciders and sake that reflect its eco-friendly roots (and could serve as an interesting way to expose new people to the world of "natural wines"). Of course, Patagonia isn't the only one dipping its metaphorical toe into the waters here; Mr. Porter is teaming with the globally recognized Glenfiddich to serve up a 20-year-old single malt. Get the details on these spirited (get it?) new gear updates (plus a whole lot more) down below. This is Today in Gear.

This 2XU mid-layer won't let cooler temperatures stop your training regimen

Training as the temperatures drop is a tricky balance. You need something insulating enough to keep you warm but breathable enough that you can work up a sweat without overheating. 2XU's Ignition Hooded Mid-Layer is just such a garment, featuring a double-knit, three-dimensional waffle construction. This allows air to flow through the fabric, which means that it dries quickly and offers increased breathability.


Fill out the foundation of your wardrobe with Knickerbocker's classic Fall 2021 collection.

Knickerbocker has built its name on supplying fans with easy-to-love, well-made menswear staples. Traditionally speaking, fall is often the best time to check out a brand, when it reveals a larger suite of garments. Knickerbocker dropped a complete Fall 2021 collection featuring elegant but understated pieces ranging from pleated trousers and cable knits to chore coats and hoodies.


Get into the game with Master & Dynamic's latest headset.
Master & Dynamic

Master & Dynamic is no stranger to top-tier audio products, and the brand enters the gaming market on November 16, launching with the MG20. Set on the back of 50mm drivers with 7.1 surround sound, there's a detachable boom mic for gaming, with onboard mics for calls (on par with other wireless headphones). Uniquely, users can set volume controls for game audio independently, making these flexible for both in-game and daily use.


EDC for the office: Benchmade makes a case for upgrading your penmanship.

Benchmade's blades have been a consistent favorite among Gear Patrol editors and readers, so it's easy for us to fall for the brand's new additions to its 11XX line. Dropping in early November in both "Shorthand" and "Longhand" designs, the pens open via a bolt-style mechanism that's reminiscent of the Axis Lock. Each style is offered in both black anodized aluminum and stonewashed steel.


High fashion retailer Mr Porter enters... the whiskey market?

Collaboration may be common in the fashion space, but it's not often you have a retailer collaborating on whiskey. Menswear shop Mr. Porter has teamed up with Glenfiddich to offer a 20-year-old single malt, which it's raffling off starting next Wednesday. Only 1,500 bottles will be produced, which — mulling over its vanilla toffee nose and palate of fudge, oak and Maluku spices — are sure to go quickly.
