Balmain x H&M – Broke boys rejoice because Balmain’s project with H&M is straight flames. It’s tough to justify 4 digit denim regardless of how skinny they make your legs look, and H&M has found the proper formula to get Balmain’s creative designer, Olivier Rousteing, to offer that pre-’90s Michael Jackson aesthetic at a fraction of the price. Military influences and tack sharp silhouettes round out the creative collection, and it’s even topped off with some luxury basketball sneakers and backpack.
Fuse Chicken TITAN Cable – Can you believe Apple wants $20 for the Lightning cable? The construction is far from sturdy, a twist and knot may render them unusable, and the plastic can get frayed. Those willing to pay a bit more can get a cable that is nearly bulletproof. The TITAN cable from Fuse Chicken is wrapped in two layers of flexible steel and measures in at about three feet. It’s also MFI certified and backed by a lifetime warranty.

KITH Mercer Classics III – If you hear KITH talking about these new joggers, you would think they were working for Apple. At the end of the day, they’re just pants that get real narrow at the ankles, but that doesn’t mean the Mercer Classics III didn’t go through a few changes. There is now additional detailing at the knee, an adjustable elastic waistband, zippered pockets, and—for all those with cankles out there—the ankle cuff now has a snap buckle adjustment. Look for the latest iteration of the Mercer to drop today.
ASICS Gore-Tex GEL Lyte V – As wet weather begins its descent, companies like ASICS are preparing sneakerheads with classic silhouettes updated with technical fabrics. The GEL Lyte V returns for fall in special “Gore Tex” editions. Arriving in two bright, vibrant colors, the first one is reminiscent of the Lakers with its use of yellow and purple, while the second arrives with a black body and the same bright orange and light blue found on the Miami Dolphins. Both alluring colorways of the GEL Lyte V offer waterproof Gore-Tex uppers and diamond-styled rope laces.
wings and horns x Polartec – As the temperature starts to dwindle and cool, wings and horns gear up by adding Polartec into their Fall/Winter 2015 offerings. The famous fleece maker adds synthetic Polartec to address the colder climates with jackets that are water-resistant and insulated with 120gsm Polartec Alpha. Besides additional warmth, the coats are also lighter, breathable, and suitable for all-weather conditions.

Sony A7s II – If you don’t know about Sony cameras, then just understand that they are beasts when it comes to video. The lens selection is expensive, but the upside is that they have cameras like the A7s II that records at 4K. Not some jumbled distorted 4K advertised by your smartphone, but an uncompressed, robust 4K with all that interpolated bitrate AV nerds go nuts over. The new A7s II also had a ridiculously high 409,000 ISO and kick ass 5-axis stabilization. Sony tops it off with a OLED electronic viewfinder, and sets the retail at $3,835.
Nike Air Jordan 1 Pinnacle – The Air Jordan 1 silhouette needs no introduction. As one of the most celebrated basketball shoes in sneaker culture, it has arrived in hundreds of colorways, but it’s the lack of color that makes the new Pinnacle unique. The latest Air Jordan 1 is draped in a luxurious Vanchetta Tan leather. The normally embossed “Wings” logo is now a patch, and so is the Nike tag on the tongue. This special Pinnacle Air Jordan 1 is set to retail for $400 and drops Saturday, September 26.
Bellroy Coin Fold – For those in the US, a coin pocket in your wallet is useless, but in nearly every other part of the world, coins aren’t just for parking meters. The Coin Fold from Bellroy is a lesson in svelte utility, and made with beautiful vegetable tanned leather. The wallet offers a full-size bill secotion, sim card slot, magnetic flap closure latch, and an extra coin pouch. The wallet looks slim, but it can hold a lot of stuff, and having a three year warranty certainly helps.
