This weekly feature is a round-up, in conjunction with our friend Tim over at Cool Material, of the hot new products appearing online this week. From fashion tips to cool gadgets and gear, take a look at your new obsessions.
Googly Eye Socks
We can’t even begin to explain how thrilled the five-year-old versions of us are that Jack Spade decided to put googly eyes on socks. There was a period in our lives when googly eyes were on everything from Popsicle sticks to pillows to trapper keepers, and oddly enough, they’re cool enough to be on big boy socks.
Swims Helmut II Rubber Boots
When was the last time you saw a pair of men’s boots designed for the rain or snow that weren’t horrendous looking? Thanks to Swims, men’s rain boots aren’t the fashion unicorn we believed them to be before right now.
Poquito Wood Wallet
Poquito is Madera’s answer to all the other slim wallets that came before. One piece of Black Walnut, White Oak or Black Cherry wood is precision machined into a 3.65″ x 2.4″ x 0.35″ container and fitted with a custom elastomer strap that makes it capable of holdin up to six cards, cash and coins simultaneously.
Stainless Stemless Wine Glass
There’s little better than enjoying a drink in the great outdoors. With this Stainless Stemless Wine Glass, you can make sure that pinot noir stays in your glass regardless of the terrain you place it down on.
Handmade Twig 4-Pack
Crafted from reclaimed wood, industrial steel wire, and an apple tree twig, this beer tote is about as rustic as you can get. Perfect for schlepping that booze out to your wood cabin or when you need to bring some beverages outside while you chop firewood.
Rubber Band Machine Gun
It doesn’t matter if you work in new media, investment banking or IT, office warfare is serious business. If you’ve never fashioned a metal ruler, rubber band and CD into a weapon of destruction, you don’t know what you’re missing.
Pocket Watch Desk Clocks
There will come a day when hipsters will resurrect the pocket watch and it will surge to a new level of popularity. Until that happens, we’re left with flea markets full of unwanted pocket watches in need of a loving home.
Wipebook – Whiteboard Notebook
You could carry around a gigantic whiteboard all the time and look like some crazy professor, or you could invest in a Wipebook. Wipebooks are basically notebooks that swap out the standard paper pages for whiteboard-esque sheets.
