Products of the Week: Tag Heuer, Lululemon, Tracksmith and More
A mountain of gear and apparel crosses our desk each week. Here's the best of it.
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 TAG Heuer Monaco 50 years in the making, the return of a long lost bourbon and a dapper tote bag from one of our favorite running companies.
TAG Heuer New Monaco Limited Edition
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of their iconic Monaco model, Tag Heuer is releasing five special editions of the watch during 2019. Unveiled earlier this week in Le Mans is the second such version, commemorating the model years between 1979 and 1989. The watch features the standard 39mm case with a deep red dial, slightly rounded-off sub-dials, and a leather calfskin strap. It is a looker.
The Everlane Trainer
Opinions at the InsideHook office are mixed on the first sneaker ever released by Everlane, with some of us finding it mostly inoffensive if slightly uninspired, while others among us feel like it looks like it’s made exclusively for old men who have trouble walking — and not in a cool way.
Tracksmith Camp Tote
The thing about this totebag is that we have no reason to think it’s not the best totebag on the market, on account of everything Tracksmith makes basically being the best possible (or at least coolest looking) version of whatever the thing is, but goddamn, $228 is steep for a totebag.
The North Face x National Geographic Collection
90s-inspired long-sleeve t-shirts? Check. Bold graphics? Check. An eco-friendly outdoors brand and a publication that’s done more to turn people onto the wonders of the world around us than probably any other single organization on earth? Check and check. We are here for this collab in a major way.
Todd Snyder x Reyn Spooner Collection
You want resort wear? From two of the most reputable menswear brands in the game? No problem.
Peerless Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
An on-and-off whiskey maker since 1889, Peerless Distlling is releasing its first bourbon since Prohibition. Distilled at its downtown Louisville distillery, the four-year old bourbon is barrel strength and non-chill filtered. Available only at the distillery starting this weekend, with a national rollout coming later this year.
Buck Mason Slim Jean
Famous for their high-quality basics — think T-shirts and hoodies — Buck Mason has also quietly been making some pretty great slim cut Japanese denim, now available in five colors, the newest of which is a summer-appropriate light wash.
Hook & Albert Black Garment Luggage Carry-On
Hook & Albert’s always had a knack for combining form and function in their travel bags. Their Black Garment Luggage Carry-On is exactly what the name belies: It’s a rather handsome, leather-accented 45L wheeled bag with a compression system and height adjustability so your packed items can be kept wrinkle-free and in the right place.
We can come up with exactly zero circumstances under which we would really need to own one of these, which has no bearing whatsoever on how badly we currently want one.
Ignite Pwradapt Patriot Pack Golf Shoes
We’re not totally on board with these, because they are a bit… extra, as we believe the kids say. But we definitely spend all of last weekend watching Gary Woodland at the U.S. Open as he marched on to victory, and we were definitely wondering what those shoes were that he was wearing. It was these. Now we, and you, know.
The new line of self-care products from Lululemon is said to be the “solution to sweaty problems,” like hot yoga face, HIIT hair, and eau de burpees. The line includes a no-show dry shampoo, two anti-stink deodorants, a face moisturizer, and lip balm. All products are sweat-tested, leakproof (no gym bag spillage), cruelty-free and clean — meaning they contain no irritants like aluminum, gluten, parabens, and sulfates.
