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: Grateful Dead tea to drink while wearing your Grateful Dead tees, a cold-weather version of Flint and Tinder’s rugged Flight Jacket and some boozy Ben & Jerry’s.

Ben & Jerry’s

Ben & Jerry’s Whiskey Biz

Two Vermont institutions collaborated on this adult treat: brown butter bourbon ice cream with blonde brownies, whiskey-infused caramel swirls, topped with white chocolate ganache and white fudge chunks. Pair with a 17-year old rye for true decadence.


Hot Stuff Pack

This Valentine’s Day, Momofuku is bringing the heat with a special two-pack featuring the brand’s Spicy Seasoned Salt and Momofuku Chili Crunch. The spicy, crunchy chili oil is made with three dried Mexican chilis, crunchy dried garlic and shallots you can spread over eggs, noodles and more, while a sprinkle of the Spicy Seasoned Salt will add some heat to shrimp, stewed meats and whatever else needs a gochugaru, cayenne pepper and dried chili kick.


Outerknown Skyline Shirt Jacket

By now you’re probably more than familiar with Outerknown’s Blanket Shirt, beloved by many for its resemblance to your favorite living room throw (hence the name). But just when you thought the brand couldn’t make an item of clothing capable of being any cozier, they release their Skyline Shirt Jacket — made with sherpa. The new shacket features a slightly similar silhouette to that of the Blanket Shirt Jacket, with updated details like a curved hem, front snap pockets and side pockets, too. But the real draw of the piece is the plush, cushy sherpa from which it’s crafted (made from 74% recycled polyester, keeping in line with the brand’s commitment to sustainability), so wearing it is akin to slipping on your coziest and most comfortable robe, just in a way that’s much more socially acceptable.


AriZona Iced Tea x adidas Originals 

Following their initial collab from back in 201, AriZona Iced Tea and adidas are back with a new collection inspired by everyone’s favorite $1 iced tea. Featuring four new colorways of the adidas Originals Superstar silhouette, the brand’s iconic big cans are a clear inspiration for the line’s exteriors. Each sneaker includes an embroidered “Have an Iced Day” slogan and even a cherry blossom-laced pouch designed to hold a $1 bill.


Flint and Tinder Quilted Flight Jacket

If you loved Flint and Tinder’s breathable, lightweight and rugged Flight Jacket but had to put it away when the weather turned cold — good news! The Huckberry in-house brand has crafted a warmer but still devastatingly handsome quilted version. Crafted from a soft, textured nylon shell quilted with lightweight insulation, you still get enough warmth to handle dropping temps without unnecessary bulk. The layer also features zippered chest pocket to keep belongings secure, a hidden interior phone pocket, two hand pockets with a signature multi-needle detailing to keep your fingers from falling off and adjustable, snap-closure cuffs.

Grateful Tea

Grateful Tea

We know you love your Grateful Dead tees but what about Grateful Dead tea. Love Some Tea, a brand that imports plantation-free teas from Thailand, recently released a tea collection with flavors inspired by the music of the Grateful Dead. Flavors include Cosmic Coconut, Ramblin’ Apple, Passionate Prophet, Workingman’s Blend, Tropical Weather and Minty-O.


Bang & Olufsen Beosound Level

Lay flat, set it on its side or mount it on a wall — this new minimalist smart speaker from B&O adapts to your space — and thanks to a built-in handle, you can bring this dust- and splash-resistant music maker anywhere. Definitely get this one in the “gold tone.”

Todd Snyder

Todd Snyder x John Derian

For his latest collaboration, Todd Snyder has teamed up with another New York icon, decoupage artist John Derian. Since 1989 Derian and his studio have been creating glass plates, trays, bowls and other home items using the artform (which consists of cutting and pasting paper). Now Derian has lent his artistic skills, as well as his vast collection of 18th and 19th century prints, to a collection of Todd Snyder short sleeve shirts, shorts, hoodies, sweatshirts and even face masks. The prints range from a deck of cards to roses to apples and clouds, and are unlike any you’ve yet to encounter. Each print gives the item a vintage feel all while managing to remain modern, a testament to both Snyder’s and Derian’s design ethos.


Clarks Wallabee Cup Maple Nubuck

Clarks gives one of their most iconic shoes an update with their latest iteration of the Wallabee. The Wallabee Cup features many of the classic details of its predecessor, namely the moccasin silhouette and hang tags, with the most noticeable difference being the sole — while still crepe, the sole now wraps entirely around the shoe, giving it a thicker and sturdier appearance. Available in “Maple,” blue and black, the Cup offers a fresher look that’s still just as classic and wearable as the OG Wallabees.

Taylor stitch tracksmith collab
Taylor Stitch

Tracksmith x Taylor Stitch

Tracksmith and Taylor Stitch, two of our favorite brands, just teamed up for a limited-edition collection of dapper, technical running gear. It includes Merino wool tees, upcycled cotton long-sleeve layers and jackets built for the elements. Each garment features a blend of each brand’s logo — Tracksmith’s harrier and Taylor Stitch’s bear.
