Good morning. NASA is awarding $30,000 to whoever can solve the problem of human waste in space. Normally, when astronauts take care of business, they need to go through the inconvenience of taking off their suit and finding a vacuum-hatch. Ideally, their suits would collect their waste — up to six days’ worth of it. Here’s what’s good in gear: a boxing-inspired robe, a leather-clad eyewear trunk, the latest Final Fantasy game and much more.
And here are some fresh stories to start the day.
Kit and Ace Routine Raglan
You have a routine. You wake up, you go to work, you hit the gym — something along those lines. You’re active, and then you’re not. A routine like this calls for a garment that perfectly merges performance and style, like Kit and Ace’s Routine Raglan. Made of a lusciously soft merino wool/cashmere blend, it’s sewn with an active fit — ribbed cuffs that never sag, collar-connected sleeves for optimal shoulder movement — making it far more capable than your standard cotton crewneck. And given its mid-weight knit, it works just as well with a jacket as it does on its own.
Wings + Horns Cabin Fleece Robe
There are robes meant for everyday lounging, and then there are big fluffy robes made for hanging in hotel closets. This one combines the best of both. It has the lightness and oversized hood of a traditional boxing robe; yet with its warmth and ribbed cuffs and pockets, it feels just like your favorite sweatshirt.
Blue Crow Media Modern Berlin Map
Berlin is one of the world’s greatest cities for viewing modern architecture. For the full experience, however, you need a map. This one guides you to the city’s 50 best modern architectural wonders, details them through beautiful words and photos, and folds neatly into your pocket.
Oliver Peoples Limited Edition Eyewear Trunk
For the collector of premium eyewear, an extravagant traveling case made of genuine leather and faux suede — because your six pairs of designer lenses deserve better than the bottom of your Dopp kit.
Final Fantasy XV
After 10 years of development, the latest addition to Final Fantasy’s epic 29-year franchise is finally here. Last week, Conan O’Brien hilariously ripped the game apart; yet reviewers are giving the game stellar reviews.
Yamabahari Cardinalis New Zealand Wool Blanket
Designed by a Bulgarian artist, inspired by Japan and made of New Zealand wool, Yamabahari’s blankets are rich in culture and richer yet in cozy warmth.
