Stance makes silly socks for surfers and skateboarders. They’re also not blind to the powers of irony, so to build upon their standard styles: pot leaf, skull, rasta stripes, etc, they’ve turned to real sports. Their latest collection is an officially licensed NBA series. Featuring team colors & logos, plus photographs of legendary players like Bird, Erving, & Olajuwon you can now be literally head-to-toe in team gear.
Titanium is cool. The functional minimalism of Bauhaus-style design is cool. A compact way to carry your many keys is also cool. That makes this titanium carabiner keychain from L.A.-based Más Design, roughly three times cooler than yours.
Regardless of how you blow the button off the front of your shirt, your intention to fix said blowout is rarely, if ever, realized.

Made from stainless steel and featuring all types of etched designs, Gestalt belt buckles add an element of style and artistic flair to your upper groinal zone while keeping your pants in their proper place.
These silk, rock-n-roll graphic neckties are sure to catch the attention of your co-workers, but you have to agree that wearing one of these is a much better way to catch a few style points than say, growing out your rat-tail again.
Fonderie 47’s goal is to help reduce violence in Africa by turning guns into something better.

Each purchase destroys 15-20 assault rifles in Africa.
Waxed canvas is really weatherproof until the wax wears off. Same with leather gloves or your rain-soaked Brooks saddle. Portland-based Otter Wax makes a kit that will treat all your old-fashioned outdoor gear. This kit includes water-repellent fabric wax, canvas cleaner, saddle soap and leather treatments to handle it all.
There was an episode of the Brady Bunch where the whole family got locked in an empty jail cell. They tied all their shoestrings and belts together, fashioning a lasso to snag the key hanging outside. If Mike had this survival belt on, hand-tied from over 100-feet of 550 Parachute cord, he could’ve snagged the key without insisting that Alice remove her pantyhose. Even though that was the best part.
If you buy link- or French-cuff shirts, you are obviously going for looks that kill. Why not take it a step further by popping a bullet through your buttonhole. These handmade cufflinks feature the heads of spent brass bullet shells on a traditional silver link. You can even send the artist your own shells from a special hunt or shooting competition and he’ll make you a custom set. Bang!
Handmade from heavy duty 9-ounce leather, this belt is brand new. But through a secret weathering process, the dudes at Portel manage to make it look like it’s been up to Laconia Bike Week a few times. But nope. It looks like this fresh out of the wrapper. Hand-burnished edges and nickel-plated steel hardware make the “used & abused” look complete.
