The world famous Lamy has reissued what is often considered to be the best fountain pen ever mass-produced – the Lamy 2000. They are only selling 3.300 of them and the price follows the logic, but damn man… These things are gorgeous.

Brand Highlight…

Read More

Banks Journal is a company formed with both Australian and Japanese influence. They seem to be focused on a sort of retro coastal vibe. If Brian Wilson got into a fight with Don Draper type of deal… Only cooler. But better, everything I’ve seen is made crazy well. And while it’s all certainly expensive, the value proposition is not off if they have something you love. Unfortunately for me, I love it all…

Audio Pro T5

Read More

I needed a smallish speaker for our Hawaiian kitchen that both sounded big and didn’t cost a fortune. I really wanted to buy the Marshall II as I know it sounds fantastic and it it looks purposeful, but I just didn’t have the budget.

So, I took a a chance and bought a speaker from a brand I’ve never heard of… The Audio Pro T5. It’s a very simple bluetooth speaker that does everything well, looks fantastic (I bought pink), and only runs around $100.

Honestly? This might be the best audio purchase I’ve made in a while. For the price, I think you would be hard pressed to find a better value.

Vans EVDNT Ultimatewaffle

Read More

I think Vans has a branding problem. They try to be this legendary comfort brand while still bringing to market all of these “innovations” with weird names. The thing is, nobody wants to spend $100 on a pair of Vans.

Even so, their Ultrarange shoes are some of my all time favorites and I often find myself interested in their other new releases. Their latest is no exception… The Ultimatewaffle take the Ultrarange and throws transparent outsoles into the game. The result is pretty dope looking.
