Kapok-Bastong-No.-001-Jacket-Gear-Patrol Kapok Bastong Jacket
It may seem counterintuitive to purchase a South-Korean-made Hunting Jacket from a Hong-Kong-based company, but rest assured, this is the real deal. Sourcing waxed cotton from British Millerain, lined with Bamberg cotton and detailed with goatskin, it’s available in mustard and navy and damn handsome in either. $581
Mulhe-x-Jack-Black-Shaving-Kit-Gear-Patrol MÜHLE x Jack Black Shaving Kit
If you’ve been wanting to replace your current nine-blade, vibrating, glow-in-the-dark razor with pure class, your time has come. For decades MÜHLE has produced fine shaving equipment; the Jack Black folks know their grooming stuff. It only stands to reason they’d team up. With etched chrome accents, cruelty-free bristles and signature Jack Black blue style, this set is a modern throwback your face will thank you for. $200
Skull-Candy-Air-Raid-Speaker-Gear-Patrol Skullcandy Air Raid Bluetooth Speaker
We can’t attest to it surviving overhead bombings, but Skullcandy’s Air Raid speaker can certainly take a licking. Liquids — splashes, spills or heavy rain — are no match for this guy, and it’ll survive drops too thanks to its silicone boot and stainless steel faceplate. Up to 14 hours of battery life, 33-foot Bluetooth range and controls right on the body make it ready for war or peace time. $150
Limited-Edition-Schwinn-Fifty-Fifty-Sting-Ray-Gear-Patrol Limited Edition Schwinn Fritz Fifty Sting Ray
In the Sixties kids raved over Schwinn’s Sting Ray — a super swoopy, modern bike inspired by motorcycle design. To commemorate the passing of the original bike’s designer, Al Fritz, Schwinn is releasing 500 limited-edition cycles in its retail stores the first week of December. You can win one online too. However you go about it, make sure you pick up some trading cards and bubble gum while you’re at it. schwinnbikes.com
J-Crew-Chuppa-Socks-Gear-Patrol J. Crew Chup Socks
Thanks to Don Draper, current classy men’s clothing tends to be a bit monochromatic and reserved. Never fear: socks will ever be a portal to whimsy. These Japanese-made socks are constructed using a stocking frame, and their patterns — inspired by family symbols — are colorful and dare we say, fun. $34
mercedes-benz-amg-sls-gt-final-edition-gear-patrol-tig Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition
To say the SLS has been a hit is an understatement — from its retro gullwing doors to its distinctive styling to its signature brand of performance, the car is a force to be reckoned with. But, as all good things do, its run has come to an end. To celebrate these few good years, MB has produced 350 (coupe and convertible combined) Final Edition cars with a special blackout hood design, carbon fiber details, new aero bits, extra special wheels, diamond-stitch upholstery and other fancy interior bits. mbusa.com
