Supreme x Timberland – This project between Supreme and Timberland has become a seasonal thing, and let’s congratulate the New York boutique. While most would shy away from the 3-Eye Lug shoe, Supreme goes all-in and updates it with embossed crocodile leather and offers it in four hood colors. The shoes are absolutely hideous, and will probably wind up at Nordstrom’s Rack, but gotta give Supreme credit for getting people talking. In addition to the 3-Eye Lug, there will also be the Classic Field Boot in red, black, white, and brown.
Shinola x Golden Bear – Shinola continues to collaborate outside of watches and for Fall, the Detroit-based watch company works with San Francisco’s Golden Bear to create a beautiful MA-1. The luxurious flight jacket is crafted from thick wool and comes with a quilted poly-lined orange interior. The classic pilot’s jacket is available now for $515 on the Shinola store.
Anti Social Social Club x Period Correct – The internet was buzzing early last week when Anti Social Social Club announced a pop-up shop with Period Correct in Costa Mesa. Anti Social Social Club’s Neek is a gearhead and working with Period Correct’s affinity for classic cars has yielded a co-branded BMW M3 E30 and a special “ENOUGH OF YOU” collection. The collection will arrive with a coaches jacket, the requisite graphic T-shirt, and a few caps.

LXRD KNOWS – Portland-based brand LXRD KNOWS returns for Fall 2016 with the “PRODUCT OF MY ENVIRONMENT” collection. Inspired by apathetic and dissatisfied youth of our nation, the name of the capsule is fitting—we are products of where we come from. The collection dropped last Friday on the brand’s website and includes T-shirts with a clever flip on Fat Albert, coach’s jackets, Dickies coveralls with the logo hit on the back, and even a pack of condoms. Read our interview with the young brand here.
Omega Sunglasses – Omega needs to get a late pass as they move from luxury watches to sunglasses. The Swiss watch brand take a play out of Tag Heuer’s playbook and offers sunglasses that match their premium watches. The eyewear collection matches Omega’s distinct approach to elegance with classic and sporty Aviators and Wayfarers that use thick acetate, flexible hinges, and anti-reflective and scratch-resistant lenses.
Fuji X-A3 – Not everyone has the budget to jump into Fuji’s line of retro-inspired cameras. With many topping $1,000 the X-line isn’t for everyone, but that might all change with the X-A3. The new model features a large 24.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor, 256000 ISO sensitivity for low-light situations, Wi-Fi, and 77-point AG system. Priced at $599, this is a reasonable start to luxury photography.
Stussy x Boiler Room for Notting Hill Carnival – The Notting Hill Carnival has become a big deal in the United Kingdom and Stussy is jumping in with the help of the Boiler Room. The two brands team up to stream all 42-hours of the show and will create a special collaborative graphic T-shirt. The tee commemorates the key acts of the show and will be sold at the concert along with Stussy UK.
FitBit Charge 2 – Working hard is still going to be hard, but it might get a little easier with a little help from FitBit. The new Charge 2 is the successor to the wildly successful original Charge and comes with some incremental updates that I don’t think is worth updating. The watch now adds VO2 Max readouts that leverage the continuous heart rate tracking to offer built-in guided breathing sessions to help you relax. It also syncs up to your phone to provide GPS data for your workouts. A lot of great features for those that don’t have a fitness tracking tool, but not really an upgrade that current users will need.
adidas NMD PrimeKnit Trainer – Maybe it’s the colors of the French flag across the three stripes that gives these NMD’s their allure, but the truth is that this is a good looking sneaker. You can use an old bologna sandwich as inspiration and it will still look good. This happens to be available in your choice of black/grey or white/black PrimeKnit upper, and a gorgeous white Boost sole. This exclusive colorway is set to drop in December, and will be available at $170—the only real downside to the NMD.
