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: Todd Snyder’s newest red-hot collaboration, a muted release from Troubadour and the iconic corned beef sandwich, courtesy of Zingerman’s.

Todd Snyder x John Derian’s collaborative capsule is a genuine meeting of the design minds, with the menswear king of NYC tapping into the artist and home goods vendor’s archival prints for a nautical-inspired collection that wouldn’t look out of place in Atlantis. Bubbling with shell prints, beachy scenes and a boat load of excellent footwear, it’s the right partnership to commemorate the moment…that moment, of course, being summer Fridays down the shore.

When you think Game of Thrones prequel, your thoughts turn to…California and Oregon wines? These tie-in products include a Cabernet Sauvignon, a red blend and a Pinot Noir. The good news is that they’re only $20.

A Taste of Melinda’s Collection

National Chicken Wing Day (7/29) is in the rearview mirror, but there’s still reason to celebrate with this variety pack from Melinda’s. Stocked with six sauces made from ingredients including fresh garlic, onion, lime juice, grated parmesan cheese and the best peppers on the planet, this collection contains a good mix of heat and flavor that can make the taste of any wing take off. Get sauced.

Troubadour Khaki Collection

Khaki: potentially boring for pants, refreshingly smart on bags. Made with waterproof fabric that lightens and wears in with age, these new offerings from Troubadour are surprisingly solid gym bag/office tote/travel pack investments.

Session Stash Pods

Fresh on the heels of their discrete One Hitter, Session has dropped another smoke-forward banger, this time in the form of the Stash Pod. The plastic airtight capsules — each pack comes with an 18mm x 61.5mm capsule and a smaller, “party-sized” pod — let you tote around your toke fuel à la carte, and completely worry-free. They even come with a nifty keychain loop for added convenience.

Backbone One: PlayStation Edition

The conceit of Backbone’s revolutionary tech is as simple as it is ingenious: a bridge to bring disparate systems (your iPhone and gaming console) together via a device hook-up to virtually any smartphone. Their most recent release, in collaboration with PlayStation, offers a way to play PS4 and PS5 games with a controller no matter where you are.

Now shipping nationwide, Zingerman’s has concocted make-at-home Reuben kits that will allow people across the country who can’t make the pilgrimage to recreate the deli’s iconic sandwich whenever and wherever they choose. Yum.

Pairing their “most scholarly styles” with Noah’s laidback nuevo-prep palette, the three-frame collection is the best way to telegraph calculated cool at the library (you’re not reading of course).
