Artican – I you’re a beer drinker than you know how important it is to have those suds ice cold. A koozie can do the trick, but the Artican thinks it can do much better. Using a cooling core that is stored in the freezer the Artican beats the foam koozie by staying cold for three hours. Re-freeze the Artican once it warms up and you can enjoy another three hours of ice cold beer. Another huge advantage of the Aritcan is that a black sleeve looks infinitely cooler (pun intended) then a flimsy koozie.
Nike Flyknit Racer “Sports Turquoise” – I’ll say all sorts of things against the Flyknit Racer, but at the end of the day they’re still a beautiful runner. The Flyknit construction hugs your foot so well and lends itself so well to nearly any colorway. The Sports Turquoise is the latest iteration and the melding of colors is perfect for the aggressively sleek silhouette. Nike sticks to the usual white midsole and black midsole, and this simplicity in the lowers allows the blues and bright turquoise to really shine.
Shinola x Benchmade – I’ve had a Benchmade in my pocket since my days at UCSD, and it’s probably still my favorite blade. Shinola feels the same way about the quality of this Oregon-based company and they head to the Pacific northwest to create a collaborative knife. Based off of the recently released 485 Valet this pocket knife uses a rugged Dymondwood handle that has a unique grain and pattern. No two are alike and it comes with the renowned AXIS folding mechanism, orange G10 spacer, and a razor sharp M390 steel.
Best Made Warm Weather Trench – The Warm Weather Trench may seem like an oxymoron for those that live in California, but rain during warm temperature does exist. Those who’ve been to Southeast Asia can definitely attest to that and Best Made wants to give you a packable solution. Their Warm Weather Trench is made from a high-tech Japanese material called SAITOS. It possesses some heavy duty qualities, but excels at being light and water resistant thanks to it’s triple-laminate. In addition to protecting you from those spring showers the jacket can also regulate temperature, and can keep you from overheating and sweating.

The North Face Coaches Jacket – It seems Supreme is rubbing off on The North Face because their library of technical fabrics and their archive of cuts and silhouettes plays second to the almighty coaches jacket. As part of their spring and summer line up The North Face takes a page out of streetwear and creates the coaches jacket in two washes of denim. The outer shell is crafted from soft denim that will develop a nice patina overtime while the mid-layer is constructed from wind-resistant Faburikusu fabric. The lighter wash looks like something a soccer mom would wear, but that dark denim looks pretty ill.

Onitsuka Tiger Colorado 85 – Denim sneakers never sat right with me. Maybe it’s because I wear jeans all the time and afraid that people will confuse the sneaker and denim combo as some ill-fitting indigo tights. But, this latest release from Onitsuka Tiger is growing on me. These aren’t your run-of-the-mill Asics; using premium Japanese selvedge denim from the Okayama prefecture this vintage trail runners offer a nice contrast with full-grain leather, a bit of red stitching, and a subtle tan.
