Allen Edmonds x Barbour Boots and Waxed Jacket
Happy 100th birthday, Allen Edmonds! If we’re being completely honest, we didn’t have the Wisconsin company’s centennial on our radar (2022 is jam-packed with 100-year celebrants, from waterskiing to the birth of Charles Schulz and Jack Kerouac), but this collaboration with Barbour knocked some sense into us. To celebrate the occasion, Allen Edmonds is collaborating with a number of brands as part of the Legends Series, and this first release features an updated take on their Higgins Mill Boot as well as Barbour’s Evelar Waxed Jacket. The boots are the star, with a new corduroy-padded ankle, nubuck uppers with a waxed cotton tongue, and tartan fabric lining. The jacket gets a simple Allen Edmonds accent on the side seam and a collab pin, but it’s the same price as the standard Evelar, so might as well pick that up too.
Another unique release from Barrell Craft Spirits, this is a blend of straight bourbon whiskeys of various ages from from five different mash bills. After marrying, the blend goes into casks made using 36-month air-dried staves that previously held … Gray Label Bourbon.
In recognition of Arby’s bringing back its Country Style Rib sandwich, Pusha T put out a diss track attacking another chain’s rib sandwich, and he collaborated with the home of the meats on a limited-edition collection of country-inspired streetwear. Available now, the collection features a bolo tie, a trucker hat, bandana to match, a custom Pusha Tee (get it?) and a custom jacket featuring the iconic Arby’s Ten Gallon Hat logo.
Intaraia-knit sweaters, polo jerseys, heavyweight rugbies and more are giving some serious ’90s nostalgia in the Rowing Blazers and Sonic the Hedgehog capsule. In collaboartion with SEGA, this new collection puts everyone’s favorite blue cartoon hedgehog on some classic American collegiate wares.
It was only a matter of time before Tracksmith released its own shoe. In the same way that the brand has made its name appealing to the competitive amateur set (and runners who aspire to be competitive), they’re not trying to make the fastest professional shoe on the market. Instead, the Eliot Runner is billed as a “daily trainer” with a Supercritical Pebax foam insole and midsole, engineered mesh upper, rubber outsole, and some signature Tracksmith swag thanks to a suede collar and sash detail on the side. The first release will be limited (and priced at $198), so if you’re interested, head to their site and get on the email list to be notified when they go up for preorder on Oct. 24 before shipping in November.
Easiest boozy coffee drinks ever? Cocktail Courier’s kit features Baileys Deliciously Light Liqueur multiple Lavazza’s Ready-To-Drink Organic Cold Brew Coffees (plus tumblers, a milk frother, sphere ice cube mold and garnishes). It’s enough for at least five cocktails and a few more drinks on the rocks.
If you can’t afford some of the pricier insulated coolers on the market, we’d highly recommend RTIC’s new 32QT Ultra-Light Cooler to keep your beverages and snacks chilled. The brand’s latest innivation is 30% lighter than prior models and features a few neat features including double-sided drainage, a built-in bottle opened at the side of the cooler and a freezer style gasket for better ice retention. An ideal tailgate essential, we say.
If AirPods are a bit out of your range or you just don’t want to look like every other person on your daily commute, consider Anker’s Soundcore line of earbuds. Their latest earphones feature Spatial Audio, personalized active noise cacnellation and up to 28 hours of playtime — and a heartrate sensor.
Dubbed “Elusive Expressions,” this annual series of limited-edition bottles features fantasy artwork by Ken Taylor and Kevin Tong on the packaging and additional experiences (virtual distillery tours, cocktails, etc.) via a QR code. The single malts themselves are also quite special, with limited releases from Oban, Mortlach, Talisker and more.
As much as we love the Peanuts gang, we’re even bigger fans of trees and all the things that grow on ‘em. That’s why this collab is so great as Cariuma plants two trees for every pair of shoes they sell. So, if you snag a pair of kicks featuring Snoopy lying on top of a tree for your feet, you’ll be planting two of the green guys for the planet. Win-win.
