The Top 10 Products InsideHook Readers Bought in September
Including: Olive Wagyu brisket, flannel-lined jackets and lawn games
It’s our job to tell you about the best products worth spending your hard-earned money on. But you, the readers, are the ones who ultimately have to decide what’s worth buying, and what isn’t. Unfortunately, we can’t invite all of you out for a monthly happy hour to show off all the new gear everyone copped (the building managers just won’t allow it). So we’re doing the next best thing: collecting the top 10 products InsideHook readers bought this month.
Flint and Tinder Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket
Right at the top of the month, we alerted you that Flint and Tinder’s popular autumn jacket was back in stock. This season, they’ve got seven colorways available, and sizes are just starting to sell out, so it’s time to act. As Associate Editor Tanner Garrity put it: “The exterior is water-repellent and can stiff-arm a branch, the interior feels like your favorite childhood blanket, and it pairs perfectly with jeans and a pair of boots.”
Japanese Olive Wagyu Brisket from Crowd Cow
“Olive Wagyu brisket is insane … It’s like eating the richest, smokiest imaginable brisket fat in suspension with meat holding it together.” That’s Steven Raichlen, BBQ expert and James Beard award winner talking about Crowd Cow’s super-limited release of the rare Olive Wagyu. These Packer brisket cuts have been nigh impossible to get in the U.S. until now, and they’re almost sold out. Almost.
Anker Qi-Certified PowerPort Wireless 5 Stand
We go to Anker for all our charging needs, and apparently so do you. This wireless charging stand (ideal for your desk) was the most popular Anker product of the month, and it’ll work with any Qi-compatible device, Apple, Samsung or otherwise.
Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman
Every month, we put out a list of books you should be reading (instead of exclusively bingeing Netflix). But in September, the best-selling book was recommended not by us, but by Goldman Sachs employees. The company interviewed 1,800 Gen Z interns and their most-read book turned out to be Nobel Prize-winner Daniel Kahneman’s book about how we think.
Retro and Vintage Hats
We wrote about seven of our favorite shops to grab real-deal vintage and retro-styled hats, but the far-and-away favorite was Retro Vintage Dope, an Etsy shop that’s basically a thrift store with only the gems. Someone bought the Mighty Ducks hat we had our eye on, but you can still find hundreds of hats from Budweiser beanies to Grateful Dead caps to just about every sports team imaginable.
The Blackjack Watch from Timex and Todd Snyder
This watch just will not quit, literally or editorially. Todd Snyder and Timex have teamed up on some handsome timepieces over the years, but this one has caught the eye of many readers probably due to its hypnotic dial, inspired by racecar gauges and roulette wheels. Oh, and it’s been 50% off for almost the whole month, too.
Mölkky Finnish Lawn Game
Remember summer days? Crispy boys at 4 p.m.? Lawn games from sunup to sundown? We wrote about the latter over Labor Day weekend, specifically “the greatest lawn game you’ve never heard of.” And apparently you really hadn’t heard of it, because lots of you picked up a Mölkky set. (You’ll need one for tailgate season, too.)
iPhone 11 Accessories
The iPhone 11 was released last month, and apparently plenty of you picked one up because chargers, cases and screen protectors were all popular. If you have your shiny new phone but only have what Apple gave you in the box, you’ll want to check out our list of the best accessories, too.
ChopBox Cutting Board
Why has this cutting board raised almost $1.5 million on Kickstarter? Well, it’s built from organic bamboo and has two inset knife sharpeners, a second smaller board, digital timer, UVC light (that kills kitchen germs), weighing scale and grooves for catching juices. OK, that still doesn’t explain why it raised $1.5 million, but if it gets your juices flowing, the campaign runs until October 18th.
Minnetonka Moccasin Two Button Hardsole Boots
Wait a second, weren’t these in the roundup last month? You bet your Brad Pitt-worshipping behind they were, and you all didn’t stop buying them just because Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is out of theaters. You see, these exact suede leather boots are worn by Pitt’s character in Tarantino’s summer blockbuster. And the ankle silhouette makes them certainly appropriate for fall, in case you still haven’t picked up a pair.
