Remodelista-A-Manual-For-The-Considered-Home-Gear-Patrol Remodelista: A Manual For The Considered Home
Remodelista’s book examines the aesthetics of 12 thoroughly designed homes to teach readers how to “edit” their own abode. The brand’s philosophy argues that classic design outdoes trendy at every turn, and to that end the book enlightens readers and aspiring beautiful home owners with simple and effective tips, DIY projects and Moore; an introduction from Ms. Julianne Moore herself (a design aficionado in her own right) graces the early pages. $23
NDC-wingtips-Gear-Patrol N.D.C. Fall And Winter Collection
The products sold by n.d.c. are made by hand in Spain and Portugal out of Tuscan leather and treated with natural waxes and oils. Each shoe in their fall collection is, therefore, a slightly unique and thoroughly crafted specialty. Boots of various types, lace-up dressy shoes and fashionable sneakers in all manner of material are ripe for the picking just in time for your annual Autumn greeting card shoot. ndcmadebyhand.com
Combat-Flip-Flops-Claymore-Messenger-Bag-Gear-Patrol Combat Flip Flops Claymore Bag
We’re always attracted to stories of hope amid conflict, and Combat Flip Flops is one such story. In an effort to support a growing Afghan economy, Combat Flip Flops set up a manufacturing facility in Afghanistan, but was forced to shut down before the delivery of their first order. They’ve recently reopened, along with a second facility in Issaquah, Washington, and a new Claymore bag that uses pure military construction and design — MOLLE webbing, nylon ripstop, a main pocket for a 13-inch Macbook etc., and two front pockets for whatever badass EDC you’ve got to lug around. $89
oakley-surf-app-gear-patrol-2 Oakley Surf Report App
Sure, you may be pulling out the boots and heavy coats, but that doesn’t mean the whole planet is subject to the gloom and cold of the autumn. Use this app and you’ll be able to track the best surf conditions across the globe. Weather, tides, swells, water temp and more. Maybe keep a beach bag packed this winter…just in case. Free
Giro-New-Road-Apparel-Fall-Line-Gear-Patrol Giro New Road Apparel Fall Line
We covered the excellent stuff from Giro New Road Apparel when it launched last spring, and when something we like so much gets an update, it only makes sense to herald it once more. This is apparel that performs like a champ out in the cycling world and also looks good enough to wear with pride in the office after your commute. In addition to office/sport hybrid wear, new items for this season include a 3/4 bib undershort, two jackets, and insulated vest and special jersey shirt. Fabrics like Merino wool, Polartec and Primaloft team up with vented seams, reinforced pockets and waterproof fabrics — there’s something to protect and ensconce riders in every situation. giro.com
Nike-Fuelband-SE-Gear-Patrol Nike+ FuelBand SE
So your Nike FuelBand kept you off the couch, and you were grateful for that, but it didn’t have Bluetooth 4.0 compatibility, and the water resistance wasn’t that great, and the colors were limited, and it couldn’t track sleep. So you were thinking of heading down to the man cave and re-running through all five seasons of Breaking Bad. Fortunately and unfortunately, the new FuelBand SE incorporates all these functions, leaving you without a valid excuse for spending the next two months in air-conditioned solitude. $149
