STATE’s everyday tote bags are unparalleled when it comes to hauling stuff around on a daily basis, and the chicest new collaboration, designed by Mia Lee of Just Like That Custom Designs, Sam Spector and Phish’s Trey Anastasio, provides all the more reason to cop up: inspired by previous collaborations between Spector and Anastasio, the entirety of the proceeds will go towards the Divided Sky Foundation, Anastasio’s nonprofit dedicated to providing supportive, informative and compassionate programming to individuals and their families affected by addiction.

Bandit Running, NYC’s “if you know, you know” running gear boutique and community, is teaming up with Brooklyn-based Fini Pizza for an exclusive NYC Marathon drop, and boy, is it straight heat. (Or is that just the fire-brick ovens?) The made-over Current Hoodie is perhaps the best way to stay comfy cheering on your insane marathon buddies…or a sick way to rep your Bandit allegiance in the warm-up pin.

Sauces By Jrk! Variety Pack

From the kitchen of award-winning Jamaican restaurant Jrk! in Miami comes a new line of high-quality condiments devoid of artificial ingredients or added sugar. The three-piece line — Bonnet Hot Sauce, Jerk Sauce and Jerk Ranch — is the brainchild of Jamaica native chef Wayne Sharpe and is the perfect way to add a little heat in the kitchen as the temperature starts to drop.

Dunkin’ x BARK Collab

America runs on Dunkin’, and now your favorite furry friend can, too. Featuring toys based on coffees, donuts and Munchkins, the pieces in the six-item collection are available as a gift with donations in support of the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation. To date, BARK and Dunkin’ helped raise $4 million for the group, which brings full-time service dogs to children’s hospitals.

Timex x Finisterre Tide Watch

A year ago Timex teamed up with British outdoor brand Finisterre to release the Tide Watch, which, among other notable elements, featured a third blue hand that could be adjusted to track high and low tide with a corresponding ring around the dial (Finisterre being an outfitter that designs gear around surfing and the sea). While not all Timex collabs come around for a second go, this one proved popular and is back with a new black and orange aesthetic. Apart from the tide hand, this 41mm quartz watch also features a seconds sub-dial, date magnifying window and a strap made of recycled plastic.

Aether + AspenX Collection

Heading into winter, Aether has partnered with AspenX, a retail/experience brand under the umbrella of Aspen Skiing Company (behind the FOMO-inducing Aspen Snowmass resort), to put together a collection you’ll want to shop before you head out on your mountain excursions this snowy season. We’re talking jackets, vests, shirts and even a poncho, all packed with insulation, quilted for warmth and style and slathered with heavy-duty weather-resistance, but also done up in a new slate of colors that’ll look great even if you decided to simply post up next to a fireplace with a mug of spiked hot cocoa.

The Balvenie Sixty

Is 60 the new 50 in the whisky world? Another extra-aged standout, this single malt is an ode to Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE, who’s celebrating his 60th Anniversary with the brand. Only 71 bottles are being released of the Speyside distillery’s oldest and rarest expression ever (retailing for a cool $145,000). As the distillery suggests, this one features aromas of lavender, heather and bracken, with rich toffee, roasted coffee and oak on the palate.

Reebok BB4000 II

Reebok has been dabbling in heritage silos as of late, none more relevant than the recently released BB4000 II. Plucked straight out of the brand’s 1980s “BB” footwear range, the style includes a variety of OG features, from premium leather overlays to its unique split Union Jack tongue logo nodding 80s brand heritage. Unfortunately, these same details ensured the style sold out immediately — although if you catch it right, there are still a few pairs floating around.

Blackstock & Weber Fall/Winter ’22

Loafer gods B&W are back for the F/W season with their new collection — dubbed “Out East,” the collection expands on Blackstock & Weber’s offerings with cream Vibram soles, new colors and the addition of Vibram soles on some of the best-selling core classics. It’s a total vibe: cop up on the first drop while you can.
