Shure – It seems there is a luxury headphone out every week, so it’s nice to see an established brand like Shure come up with pair of headphones that won’t break the bank. The new 144 and 145 are two over-the-head headphones that feature a collapsible design and a three button remote/mic. The 144 has a semi-open design for those that appreciate a natural sound, while the 145 has a closed back design for audiophiles that prefer a deep base. While most headphones start at three figures, this new line up from Shure will retail for under $50.
The North Face Purple Label 65/35 Parka – It’s still pretty hot here in SoCal, but those in other parts of the world are gearing up for the colder weather.

That special 65/35 ratio is meant to help the jacket stay light and dry quicker, and the down ensures an insulation of warmth. Look for jacket to be available in tan, white, black, and navy.
Liberty x Oakley for Staple – Earlier this season Staple commissioned Liberty of London for a custom textile. The capsule collection included the usual streetwear essentials, but Staple isn’t done with the special “Ptolemy” pattern. Oakley will join the party by taking the print and using it across a pair of translucent Frogskins. Look for the sunglasses to come with polarized Ice Iridium lenses, and includes a little Staple pigeon is laser-etched on the lens. The sunglasses will retail for $150 and be accompanied by a matching carrying pouch.
