Nike Cortez “1972”
In honor of the Nike Cortez’s debut year, the brand has released their latest iteration of the sneaker, the “1972.” Retro-inspired details and a color palette including Coconut Milk, Obsidian, White, and Green further enhance the shoe’s already innate vintage aesthetic, taking it to the next level.
Charles Tiffany Setting Men’s Engagement Ring
After 184 years in the business, Tiffany & Co. is debuting its first ever line of engagement rings for men. Named after Tiffany’s founder Charles Lewis Tiffany, the collection includes six sophisticated rings available in platinum, gray titanium and black titanium and finished with a dazzling emerald-cut or round diamond.
Ray-Ban Vagabond Reloaded
The ’70s are back, baby, and if you needed any more proof, just look to Ray-Ban’s latest drop, featuring two styles retrieved from the brand’s design archives. The Vagabond and State Side Reloaded call back to the decade of disco and bell bottoms, both featuring strong pilot silhouettes (with the Vagabond’s lenses slightly more rounded), tri-layered frames in striped Havana, and yellow Ambermatic lenses to really lend the shades that authentic 1970’s aesthetic.
Therabody, the brand known for its best-selling compression therapy massagers, has launched the RecoveryAir — a pneumatic compression system designed to boost circulation, relieve muscle soreness and fatigue while reducing swelling — and all you have to do is sit back and relax on your way to recovery.
The Barnes by The James Brand
We’ve been fans of the James Brand for years, thanks to their ever-growing range of tastefully designed and technically impressive knives and EDC items. They’ve raised the bar this week, with the release of their first integral design, the Barnes, which features a titanium frame lock, a 3.5″ Bohler M390 stainless steel blade, ceramic bearings and a dual-sided thumb stud in a striking green. It is also, as you’ve come to expect from the brand, a total looker.
Riedel Gin Set
Enjoy your favorite gin the right way. Riedel’s new gin glass set allows you to enjoy the “aromatic expression” of your favorite gin. With a tulip-shaped bowl and modern, classy design, you can sip on your elevated gin cocktails in style.
Hydro Flask Outdoor Kitchen Collection
Hydro Flask is making it easier to simultaneously enjoy the great outdoors and a great meal with their new Outdoor Kitchen gear. The collection is equipped with everything needed for an outdoor meal, whether you’re camping or just chilling in your backyard, from stainless steel flatware sets (they even come with a pouch so you don’t lose them), to plates with TouchShield double-wall insulation that keeps food hot or cold without transferring the temperature to your hands, and, of course, a tumbler. Available in three colors (including a new pastel yellow shade) the collection is just as handsome as it is functional, bound to leave your friends impressed on your next park gathering.
Wolverine BLVD Sneakers
Wolverine has been building some of the most brawny, bombproof boots in the game for 135+ years, so when we heard they were applying those same techniques to a new line of sneakers we were giddy with anticipation. Wolverine delivered with their new BLVD collection, a suite of streamlined leather/suede kicks with clean, classic lines and Wolverine’s signature hand-crafted construction. The collection boasts two silhouettes, the “Low” and the “Court,” each available in multiple handsome colorways that will handily elevate any casual ensemble to the next level.
The Boozy Capsule by Oddfellows
Great ice cream + great cocktail bars = your summer dessert. The six flavors here are inspired by cocktails from NYC boozy mainstays like Attaboy, Death & Co, Limantour, Long Island Bar, Maybe Sammy and Two Schmucks. You’ll either love (which I did) or hate (which my gf did) Attaboy’s Penicillin, which is a Dewar’s Blended Scotch Whisky and Islay Single Malt Scotch infused sweet cream ice cream with a hint of lemon, honey and candied ginger. 10% of proceeds from sales — yes, they ship nationwide — will benefit Another Round Another Rally, a charity providing education and emergency aid to hospitality workers.
Lodge Bakeware Collection
Cast iron bakeware from cookware gurus Lodge for under $50? That’s the promise of this Williams Sonoma exclusive, which features baking pans, skillets, pizza pans and casserole dishes, all with silicone grips.
The Craft Brewers Whiskey Project
A long-gestating idea by MA-based Berkshire Mountain Distillers will see a dozen craft whiskies distilled from regional Northeast beers (Sam Adams, Ommegang, Captain Lawrence, etc.) over the course of 2021. Gonna guess the Jack’s Abby Smoke & Dagger will be the winner. All the whiskies aged for five years and were triple distilled.
