Staff Picks: All the Stuff Our Editors Fell in Love With This Week

Tabasco whiskey, an essential headphone dongle and polos

By The Editors

Welcome to InsideHook’s Staff Picks, a compendium of all the things our editors have been digging on recently.

Todd Snyder x Champion Retro Bright Cocktail Sweatshirt
It pains me to acknowledge that my favorite season is fast drawing to a close. Not spring, but rather, shorts-and-sweatshirt season: that fleeting, twice-annual period during which you can comfortably bare legs while wearing something a little chunkier up top. It is a killer look, and one made all the more triumphant with the addition of this ’90s-inspired colorblock from Todd Snyder and Champion. — Walker Loetscher, Editor in Chief


Yellow Submarino Bath Set
Porcelain, rubberized paint and the ultimate summertime color are the only three-way I can in good confidence say probably won’t ruin your life. But it will make your bathroom a bit more interesting, and replace that scummy soap dish you’ve had since 1997. Be advised: users must wash hands before penning any enduring earworms. — Athena Wisotsky, Senior Editor

Penguin Daddy Polo 2.0
Claiming to have been the originators of the golf shirt, the Penguin polo is always a solid option that I keep in steady rotation throughout the warmer months. Not flashy, but a perfect fit with it’s mid-bicep banded sleeves and a classic cotton polo weave that everyone’s come to associate with classic polos. And it’s priced to move at $55. — Eli London, Director of Partnerships and User Acquisition

Brooklinen Super-Plush Complete Towel Set
The first time drying off with Brooklinen’s new “Super-Plush” 820-gram, long-staple cotton towels, I had a flashback to standing on a hotel-room balcony after a shower gazing upon a moonlit beach. These are the super-luxe towels you dream about buying after vacations, but at a non-luxe price. I’d recommend the “generously sized” bath sheets (versus the standard towels), but if you’re anything like me, you’ll need the complete set for your long overdue towel purge. — Alex Lauer, Associate Editor

Stance Calrissian Socks
Solo is here, baby. Who knows how long this stretch of Star Wars sequels, prequels, reboots and reimaginings will last before we grow as fatigued as Chewy trying to pick a lock, but for now the vibes are good, and they’ll be even better in a pair of Stance X Star Wars Lando Calrissian socks. Yes, no-shows should be your mainstay come summer, but it’s fun to adorn the ankles with a pop of character once in a while, and who’s got more than Cloud City’s smooth-talkin’, triple-crossin’ bachelor-in-chief? — Tanner Garrity, Associate Editor

DC Reprieve SEs
When I became a man, I put away childish things — but kept rocking ‘90s-style skater shoes. Perfect for kicking it post-Memorial Day, these all-white sneaks have just a touch of blue that should match nicely with the summer skies to come. With a breathable upper made of premium leather mated to a minimalist rubber sole, you won’t find a better buy for 75 bones. — Evan Bleier, Real Clear Life

Twelve South Airfly
A tiny device that allows you to use AirPods or any wireless headphones where a wire was previously required. Meaning, our ridiculously nice Bose wireless headphones can finally be used for in-flight entertainment systems (or for gym TVs) without digging around for a cord. — Kirk Miller, Managing Editor/Nation Editor  


No joke. Full review is here.
