Prometheus Design Werx BoB – The dudes up at Prometheus Design Werx in San Francisco are always dreaming up the gnarliest tools. After their One Piece Tool, they’ve set their sights on Emergency Service Professionals and designed a one-of-a-kind multi-tool. The new BoB (Beer or Break) Tool is ultra-compact, has a hex tool, wrench, and has a Tungsten Carbide Ball that makes it a trusty window breaker. Made from titanium, the BoB also has a 1/4″ driver, bottle opener, and lashing holes.

Nike Tennis Classic Woven – The iconic Nike Tennis Classic is a simple silhouette that can withstand the test of time. There haven’t been many updates, and rightfully so, but Nike is switching things up with a woven upper. The iconic swoosh is noticeably missing and now sports a finely woven upper that is contrasted by leather reinforced eyelets. The vulcanized sole stays true to the original in a crisp, clean white.

A Cold Wall – The second season for the former assistant to Virgil Abloh is getting some rave reviews. Samuel Ross’s sophomore effort with A Cold Wall blends casual street with experimental fashion. The spring and summer collection further inspects how far simple printed graphic T-shirts can blend with intricately constructed bottoms. I’ll be the first to admit that I have no clue what “No Water” across the front means, but A Cold Wall has piqued my interest; excited to see what else is in store.

Google Photos – Besides offering the world’s best search engine, the Mountain View-based Google now wants to host all your pictures for free. This isn’t just for the ones on your phone, but your entire library of jpegs. Pretty nice gesture, and you might be wondering what the rub is? Well, besides using this information to gank you later in life, the storage system does not save the pictures in its original size. Google Photos saves your pictures in a view-able size, but not the original whopping 10mb. Google Photos works with your phone and your desktop to combine your entire world of pictures, and sorts them by date and location (assuming Geo-Tagging was turned on).

Tanner Goods Natural Cordovan Straps – Tanner Goods knows its way around leather, and while they’ve been fashioning beautiful wallets, bags, and belts, this spring they dive into straps. The classic NATO strap is usually made from nylon, but this Portland-based brand switches it up with premium Cordovan leather. The quality and detail is impeccable, and sourcing leather from the famed Horween tannery means a thick 4/5 ounce natural strap. Each strap is hand sewn and outfitted with Tanner Goods’ custom stainless steel hardware.
