Good morning. What happens when you ask an Apple designer to design the interior of a private jet? Something fascinating, yet totally unsurprising: a wonderful display of opulence and design excellence. Marc Newson, one of the head designers of the Apple Watch, created the interior of this Boeing business jet. Here’s what’s good in gear: a stylish collection of sweats, a pair of adventurous Californian sunglasses, a heritage Land Rover and much more.

Remember to tune in on Facebook this Friday at 12pm EST — we’ll be reviewing some of the cool new gear in our office.

And here are some fresh stories to start the day.

Frye Wyoming Hiker

If anyone knows boots, it’s Frye. For 153 years, Frye has been handcrafting boots of unparalleled quality. The Wyoming Hiker is a descendent of one of their most classic boot designs, updated with an adventurous edge: a sturdy, thick rubber outsole tramples easily over all sorts of terrain, while a waxed Italian suede upper seals out water and shrugs off dirt. And, best of all, they’re designed to look fantastic in any setting, whether that’s a muddy mountain trail or a snow-coated city sidewalk.

Electric Road Glacier Sunglasses

These sunglasses are built for sea-to-summit adventures — for morning deep-sea fishing excursions, afternoon splitboard rides in the high Sierras and evening motorcycle cruises through foothills. Designed with the help of famous surfer and snowboarder Chris Christenson, they feature anti-reflective, water- and oil-proof lenses, which are protected on the sides by stamped metal shields. A separate kit adds even more retro appeal with glacier-style leather eye shields and hooked temples; regular and polarized lenses are also available.

CoolVintage D90 Heritage Land Rover

We have a soft spot for vintage 4x4sespecially Land Rovers. And we’re not alone. Land Rovers are beloved the world over, and rightfully so. Still, few are as top-notch as this 2003 model: a supple brown leather interior, a fresh coat of paint, squeaky-clean details — hell, even the carpet holds our attention.
