Roark Revival Officer Jacket
A stylish waterproof bomber-style jacket with a price we can get behind. After the 15% discount, it’s just $85.
Nagasaki Knife Collection
A knife collection that brilliantly fuses German and Japanese craftsmanship to create an incredibly handsome set of cutting tools. Currently funded on Kickstarter and available at a hefty discount, starting at $110.
These flannels were created to be wearable in slightly more formal settings than the normal Seattle '90s outfit will allow. Get 20% off with code ‘hook20’.
Eyewear was disrupted years ago (Warby Parker, 1-800 Contacts, ec.) Why not orthodontic work? Candid is a new direct-to-consumer startup that offers at-home clear aligners for 65% less than the cost of going to the orthodontist.
Tommy John Go Anywhere
Already known for their comfy basics, TJ’s new Go Anywhere line of underwear, henleys and (casual) dress pants feature a new fabric that’s anti-odor, moisture-wicking, and quick-drying. These are your Saturday afternoon fall wardrobe. From $25-$115.
Flaviar x Caskers Craft Spirits Celebration
Online drinks vendors Flaviar and Caskers have teamed up for a celebration of great liquor. At this Sept. 14 New York event — worth flying in for — they’ll be presenting specialty drinks and sips from 30 different spirits brands (with accompanying food and cigars, too.) We went two years ago, and we’re still buzzing about it — in a good, responsible way, of course. Bonus: Flaviar is offering InsideHook readers some discounted tickets.
