What's New, Now

• The Mad Pooper: In Colorado Springs, Colorado, an innocent family is being terrorized by a mysterious woman pooping on their lawn and jogging away. For weeks now, the woman, dubbed the “Mad Pooper,” has been doing these shit-and-runs, though no one knows why. It certainly seems intentional; she brings her own toilet paper, and bathrooms are just a few blocks away from her turd drop zone.

What’s New, Now
Nau Boiled Wool Shirt Jacket
It’s that chillier, windier time of year, and t-shirts just won’t cut it anymore — time to break out the layers. Nau’s Boiled Wool Shirt Jacket is a superb layering piece, thanks in part to its namesake fiber, which is treated with hot water to increase density and wind resistance versus its untreated counterparts. It has classic style but also hidden technical details, like a PFC-free DWR treatment to enhance water resistance.
