Plus, get a personalized bottle of Crown Royal
Each week, our inbox runneth over with news of gear, apparel and tech releases from around the world. In this feature, we’ll parse through the best of them. Today: A fleece by A24 to party in, a skincare line for everyone and a very cozy, nostalgic sweater.
Tombolo “Big Cat on Campus” Cabana Shirt + Pants
The fine folks at Tombolo are never short on sartorial bangers (we’ve been down with their delightfully off-the-wall leisurewear since day one), but even for them … this is some next level shit. Is it a track suit? Is it a sweat suit? Is that a flaming lion on there? Where are we meant to wear this thing? Your answers: kinda, kinda, hell yes it is, and “wherever you want to be the swaggiest SOB in the place.”
Outerknown Nostalgic Sweater
Kelly Slater’s brand takes me back to the late 70s/early 80s with this rainbow-striped sweatshirt, available in three styles. That said, the layer is built from a very now blend of organic cotton and performance “COOLMAX.”
Tecovas The Marshall
The cowboy/western look was one of 2020’s biggest trends. Even if you don’t subscribe to the horse-riding, pick-up truck-driving, country music-blasting lifestyle, the look is still a ruggedly handsome, super fun one. But while the masses are sporting subpar $40 boots, you’ll have the real deal with Tecovas. The Austin-based brand makes its line of timeless, top-quality boots by hand in Leon, Mexico, where the practice has been a tradition for generations. Tecovas newest boot, The Marshall, is a lux yet traditional-looking boot crafted from durable Nile crocodile leather. Its sophisticated, elegant and means serious business around these parts. Though if you’re looking for a more rugged, affordable option, the brand’s recently released Stockton and Bandera styles fit the bill.
Sponsored by Crown Royal
As 2020 draws to a close, it’s safe to say the holidays will be a little different this year. Thus a bottle of top-shelf whisky is very much the name of the game when it comes to holiday gifting, and for that you should look no further than storied Canadian distillers Crown Royal. No matter who you’re shopping for, they’ve got an expression to mark the occasion — from the classic Deluxe to the velvety Reserve to the sophisticated XR. This holiday season, all are available with customizable labels and bags so you can give the ultimate gift with a personal message for the special people in your life. Our suggestion: “Happy holidays, may we raise a glass together again soon.”
Old Man Winter has arrived to wreak havoc on your handsome mug, which means now’s the time to get your skincare routine properly dialed. Enter PROVEN, a new line of bespoke skin care that is personally customized to you based on your skin, environment and lifestyle. You fill out a quick Skin Genome Quiz, at which point a team of Stanford skin scientists gin up your unique formula for maximum effectiveness using clean natural ingredients (as well as some handy data-analyzing AI that won an award from MIT). A couple weeks later, three custom products (a cleanser, daily moisturizer with SPF, and a night cream) arrive on your doorstep, and you get to work on your youngest, freshest face in ages.
CACTI by Travis Scott
Rapper Travis Scott has launched his first ever beverage venture in partnership with Anheuser-Busch and jumping on the spiked seltzer trend. The seltzer is called CACTI, and it’s made with 100% premium blue agave from Mexico and features some pretty dope packaging.
Noah x Peter Tosh
Peter Tosh, co-founder of reggae powerhouses the Wailers, advocated for social justice through his music. To honor his legacy, Noah has partnered with the Peter Tosh Foundation to release a t-shirt bearing his signature and the phrase “Equal Rights” printed along the sleeve. 100% of the profits from the shirts will be split equally between the Peter Tosh Foundation and Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camp, which gives young Black people the necessary tools to navigate encounters with the police.
HOKA Carbon X2
Like its predecessor, the HOKA Carbon X2 delivers propulsive speed but this time in a sleek, adaptable silhouette primed for training and running. Crafted with a responsive carbon fiber plate, the sneaker features a re-engineered mesh for ultimate breathability and comfort, lighter, super-soft foam, an updated collar shape and anatomical Achilles support.
A24 Party Fleece
A24’s merch tends to veer towards the untraditional (we’re talking basketball shorts and puzzles) and their latest addition to the collection is no different — a pullover fleece. The “Party Fleece” features a blue and black colorblocked design with yellow elastic piping on the cuffs and color, and a vibrant red front placket. Crafted from 100% polyester polar fleece, it’s still sufficient enough to keep you cozy while showing off your film chops via the A24 logo.
Skincare knows no gender. Pharrell Williams is behind the launch of this line of all-gender cleansers, exfoliators and creams, all of which arrives in eco-friendly packaging.
Sleepy Jones x Purple Pajamas
People stay loving the signature SoftStretch sheets from mattress purveyors Purple — the four-way blend of rayon, bamboo viscose, poly and spandex has a luxurious feel and is a boon for those who run hot under the covers. Stands to reason the same comfy fabric could be used to make things other than sheets, no? For that Purple turned to the pajama princes at Sleepy Jones, collabing on a handsome set of jammies with just the right amount of stretch and breathability. With at least a few more months ahead in which pajamas will qualify as all-day attire, this one seems a no-brainer.
Shaken in 2020, But Not Stirred: Cocktails, Connections, and Humor
Co-founder of the original reggae band The Wailers, Peter Tosh’s work in the band is largely responsible for introducing the genre to a wider audience. More than just a self-taught musician, Tosh advocated for social justice through his music, releasing the albums Legalize It and Equal Rights. To honor his legacy, Noah has partnered with the Peter Tosh Foundation to release a t-shirt bearing Tosh’s signature and ‘Equal Rights’ printed along the sleeve. 100% of the net profits from the shirts will be split equally between the Peter Tosh Foundation and Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camp which teaches Black youth tools to navigate encounters with the police.
