Tanner Goods Bag Collection – Tanner Goods has always been involved with leather crafting, but recently the Portland brand explored the virtues of canvas and crafted a beautiful collection of bags. For the upcoming season the collection grows with three new colors of non-waxed cotton canvas. Using sage, walnut, and burnt oak, the bags are made from thick 18 ounce heavy-duty canvas, Horween Rich Chromexcel leather detailing, and held together with solid brass rivets and four button studs. The bags are beautiful and ready to stand the test of time.

Myles Shorts – Finding a pair of shorts that works in and out of the gym is going to be tough. Funky colors and over-sized cuts make gym shorts comfortable and fun, but limit their use. While the traditional textiles found in shorts aren’t the best for the sweaty nature of the gym. Myles may have found a solution with their new pair of shorts. The classic-looking shorts are made from that fancy-shmancy technical four-way stretch fabric and it’s been treated by DWR to keep stains and water away. The shorts are set to retail for a reasonable $48 and should be out in October.
Kasina x New Balance – New Balance is a favorite among sneakerheads in the US, but it’s a whole ‘nother beast in Asia.

This special “Inspired by Nature” colorway arrives with the toe box, tongue, and ankle tab all done in a grey and blue spotted leopard print.

Along with the flashing LED lights, it charges two smartphones. The two USB ports can each output 2.1 amps; enough to charge your tablet, too. Look for this awesome car charger to be available from ThinkGeek in September.
Dievas Flieger Vintage – When it comes to upgrading the G-Shock, it’s important to go with something that won’t go out of style.
