Zanerobe-Chinos-Gear-Patrol Zanerobe Jogger Pants
Skinny jeans have fallen out of fashion’s favor: no more worn crotch holes! Welcome this new era with Zanerobe’s jogger pants, which come in three styles: dropshot, sureshot and slingshot. Respectively, they’re baggy, form fitting, and tight; their use of drawstrings and elastics toes the line between earnest comfort and winking normcore. $100+ ()
DJI-Spreading-Wings-Gear-Patrol DJI Spreading Wings S900 Hexacopter
Whether for sweeping aerial landscape videos or spying on neighbors (not to condone it), DJI’s new Hexacopter drone can take off carrying any camera weighing under 4.9 kilograms. Its carbon fiber arms and landing gear ensure structural and flight stability; your purchase won’t go compromised, nor will your…creative integrity. dji.com
McLaren-P1-GTR-Gear-Patrol McLaren P1 GTR
The McLaren P1 GTR keeps it in the family; it’s available only to McLaren P1 owners. The P1 GTR has been upgraded to 986 horsepower and streamlined for minimum drag with an F1-derived Drag Reduction System, an exclusive straight-cut twin pipe design and repositioned wing mirrors. A little loyalty goes a long way on the track. cars.mclaren.com

Sony’s a5100 is a high-quality photo and video camera with powerful specs — an ISO range of 100-25600, a 25 / 179 point AF system — and newbie-friendly features like a hybrid autofocus system and a flip-up screen (for selfies).
Billy-Kirk-Gear-Patrol Billykirk Flagship Store
The famed leather crafters finally have a flagship store in New York City’s lower east side. Inside the well-appointed, compact space you’ll find quality leather and canvas wallets, bags, belts and even a dopp kit or two. billykirk.com
Toyota-Tundra-QS-Gear-Patrol-Lead New York to Maine in the Toyota Tundra
When daydreaming of a classic summer road trip vehicle, a pickup truck is not what normally springs to mind — especially a massive 5,800-pound one that gets 17 mpg. However, seeing as the 2014 Toyota Tundra ($26,000+) could haul the space shuttle Endeavor across an LA freeway, I figured it could handle my family, a few bags and nearly 700 miles of road tripping.
