Celebrating 100 years as working man's best friend

Stanley 100th Anniversary Vacuum Bottle

If you’ve ever ventured into a cold winter morning with your old man, there’s a good chance you’ve drunk coffee the best way it’s served: piping hot, with steam rising out of the top of an old Stanley Thermos’s cap cup. To celebrate 100 years of that stoic pea-green metal friend, Stanley is releasing its 100th Anniversary Vacuum Bottle ($38+) this November.

The thermos pays homage in the best way — by providing the same simple, tough quality as its predecessor. Sporting the classic homely 1944 “Hammertone” finish and commemorative “100 years” badge, both the 1L and 1.3L sizes still exude flashless utilitarianism and are made of rustproof, BPA-free 18/8 stainless steel. It goes without saying that the vacuum bottle keeps its contents hot or cold for 24 hours and that its 8oz metal cap is still the best way to drink tongue-burning black coffee on an icy morning.
