Very viable Leatherman Squirt alternative that is TSA compliant.
Atocha Design Open/Close Series
I could really use this.
Loyal Stricklin Rucksack
Very pretty, gorgeous even - but not the most practical. Full leather bags are always unreasonably heavy, and that roll top would be a pain to use in the city. Those quick access pouches will provide quick access to you, and the potential pickpocket. It might be more functional for the great outdoors, where you don’t need to access your bulky items often. Unfortunately, I doubt that many would use a $750 rucksack for hiking in the woods.
MoMA Sphelar Flashlight
From the MoMA website (I’m sold):
Elegant, efficient, and eco-friendly, this sculptural flashlight harnesses the sun’s power using micro-spherical solar cells. These tiny orbs capture sunrays from all directions, maximizing the amount of light absorbed. When fully charged, it provides up to four hours of LED light. The flashlight comes with a wooden base that provides stability while charging. The handle can accommodate a lanyard for carrying ease (not included). Graf is a multidisciplinary creative collective founded in Osaka, Japan, by an architect, a product designer, a carpenter, a furniture craftsman, an artist, and a chef, who all bring their unique talents to their unique output. Made in Japan. 6h x 1”diam.
Buster + Punch Brass Light Switches
Love this, reminds me of my guitar pedals and amps.
Ralph Lauren Wagner Jacket
This is absolutely gorgeous. I have a thing for this particular shade of indigo, and the details on these are drool-worthy. The print is stunning, I love the brass buttons, barrel cuffs and pointed collar. And would you look at that angled patch pocket, lovely! Finally, the adjustable cinch-back just rounds off this work-wear piece perfectly.
Orslow Standard Denim 105
Orslow does it right again. This is a very flattering straight cut, replete with lovely details from the buttons to the ‘slubby’ texture of this 13.5oz Japanese selvedge denim.
L.L Bean Continental Rucksack
Vintage vibes, modern materials. Quite affordable too!
Folk Navy Blue Decio Jacket
Interesting and subtle details.
Nike Air Pegasus ‘89 in Cool Grey
Nice silhouette, subdued palette. Comfortable, functional, somewhat affordable. Fabulous. Except that US8 seems to be sold out everywhere!
Scripts: Elegant Lettering from Design’s Golden Age
What a magnificent reference book, gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!
The Chronicle of the Fountain Pen: Stories within a Story
Stories within a story, I’m already sold. And below is what Richard Binder has to say about this book, well take my money already. It’s the history, heritage and context of the pens that truly interests me. So this book hits the sweet spot.
”Instead of discussing this manufacturer and then that manufacturer and then the other, this thoroughly fascinating book approaches pens in a radical new way, placing this pen and that pen and the other together year by year and setting them in the twin contexts of each other and of their times. Lavishly illustrated and diligently researched. Not to be missed!”
Nock Co 3-Pen Hightower Case
I already have their 6-pen roll case, but I find myself wanting the 3-pen holster too. Now, hear me out. This would allow me easy assess to my most used pens of the day. I can keep this in the front pouch of my bag, and whip out my pens in an instant. And it has a space for a memo book - perfect! The 6-pen roll case is nice, but cumbersome. To take out a pen, I’ve to unzip, unroll and then roll it back, zip it up and stash it away. You can’t really leave it unrolled because it’s flappy and takes up a lot of space on the table. And especially in public, I don’t particularly like my pens being out on display and vulnerable to prying eyes and grubby hands. So, I need this.
Filson Twill Backpack
Lovely! Hardy, simple and functional. Oh, just a tad overpriced too.
