The term “Made in America” should’ve never gone away and we think it’s a good sign it’s making a comeback. Portland, Oregon’s Tanner Goods makes quality leather products the old-fashioned way, with timeless styling. Their vegetable tanned leather belts, featuring heavy-duty brass and nickel-plated buckles, are built to last by American craftsmen. This is what we call positive change.

The designs of Ireland’s Garvan De Bruir are best described as modernist. The young designer employs foundational, classic motifs to form products that are totally new, yet have a traditional texture & quality. His Weekender bag is a perfect example.

Seminal New York punk pioneers The Ramones had a patented recipe for their songs: A 3-chord riff with a 4/4 beat. And this simple recipe has had fans eating up their records for over 30 years.

In some ways we’re pretty dumb, aren’t we? Like, we only get extra keys made after paying the locksmith 500 bucks to get us into our car. We vow to back our computers up only after losing the family photo archive. Maybe now would be a good time to think ahead. Just take a baby step. Get one of these shitstorm-proof cases from LaCie to hold your 2.5” hard drives, digital cameras, or any other small, valuable electronic-type gear you don’t want to replace. Do some damage control.
At many embassies, these pens are filled with invisible ink … but not this one. If you’re not signing treaties and extradition orders, you’ll appreciate its Fisher SPR4 ink for easy refills.
