Alex Crane Kite Jacket

Alex Crane’s Kite Jacket may have caught you eye on account of it’s sustainably-grown French linen weave. Maybe it’s short-cut collar drew you in. Perhaps the oversized front pockets and relaxed fit? Whatever might appeal to you, you’ll surely stay for the ultra-soft feel and lightweight cut — fall jacket perfection.

Sparkle Maple Old Fashioned Kit

The best fall whiskey cocktails involve maple… and sparkles? This interesting kit pairs Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup Sparkle Edition with a bottle of WhistlePig’s Piggyback 100% Rye (which comes with a Pig Head Pour Spout).

Leatherman Garage Batch #003: Parts

The third product from Leatherman’s new Garage initiative, where the brand pushes the boundaries in multitool design through limited-edition releases, the Parts knife was created using one simple idea: try to build the best blade possible with reused parts from other Leatherman products. The result is a folder with interchangeable blades and a white and “Lunar” color scheme (that’s their name for those neon accents). As with the previous two Garage models, this one sold out almost immediately.

H. Moser & Cie Streamliner Tourbillon

There are actual, useful, real-world applications for Vantablack, the so-called darkest color in the world, a black that, if it were in a box of Crayons, the paper coating would read “Black Hole.” BMW’s Vantablack car? That’s not one of them. Neither is H. Moser & Cie’s new Streamliner Tourbillon, which takes the horological wizardry of a flying tourbillon and sets it in a Vantablack dial so it appears to float in space. That doesn’t mean we want this any less.

BlueCut Maximus Black Leather Apron

Made from hand-selected black leather with a “naked” finish for a natural look that will age well over time, the Maximus apron is fully functional for cooking and entertaining. What kind of entertaining that might be is entirely up to the wearer, but rest assured the apron is fire-retardant against flames and sparks, and any potential stains, from fluids of all varieties, can be gently dabbed with a cloth towel. The apron will ship nationally from September through December.

Casa Azul Tequila Soda

Honestly, tequila canned cocktails are killing it over other spirits-based ready-to-drink (RTD) options. And next up is Casa Azul’s debut line-up, a line of 100-calorie cans, including Lime Margarita, Strawberry Margarita, Peach Mango, and Watermelon. At just over $3 per can, this is an ideal low-cal, low-ABV option.
