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 it. Today: Ceramic tableware from Our Place, a new RTIC cooler, and Real Country Style from Arby’s and Pusha T.

Our Place

Our Place Tableware

Versatility is key here: The plates double as lids, the bowls can serve as shallow plates and everything stacks nicely and stores easily. These versatile new table essentials, made from stoneware, are also ideal fo reheating and are dishwasher-, oven-, microwave- and fridge-safe. 


Forme Core Tee

Crafted with FDA-approved wearable technology that’s free of any wires or sensors, Forme’s Core Tee is designed to improve posture, boost recovery and relieve pain. Constructed from patented materials that engage your body’s muscle memory to keep your back straight, Forme’s wearables are made to improve your health instead of simply tracking it.


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.

Barrell Bourbon

BCS Gray Label Bourbon 

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. 


Arby’s x Pusha T Collection

Rowing Blazers

Rowing Blazers and Sonic the Hedgehog

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.


Tracksmith Eliot Runner

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.

Cocktail Courier

Deliciously Light Cold Brew Kit

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. 


RTIC 32 QT Ultra-Light Cooler

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.


Soundcore Liberty 4

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. 

Whiskey Exchange Blog

Diageo Special Releases 2022

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.


Cariuma x Peanuts Sneakers

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.
