Roark Revival Denim
Highway 133 in Southern California rolls through Laguna Canyon on its way down to Laguna Beach, where outdoors and travel brand Roark Revival is based. The company, which focuses on constructing jeans from the inside out, has made its HWY 133 Raw Denim a pair of jeans that can withstand a life on the road.

Cut from a heavier weight (13.75 oz) with a just a touch of elastane for stretch, the HWY 133 Raw Denim jeans also feature interior clean finished flat felled seams with stitched and pressed open interior side seams for durability. Offered in a standard slim fit, the raw indigo denim means that over time, these jeans will tell the story of where you’ve been.

Orient Executive Sun & Moon V.3
Save $225: Mechanical complicated watches are cool — we’re probably all in agreement on this one. How could something that gives you a day/night indicator or all kinds of calendar information running on a bunch of gears and wheels and the motion of your wrist not be dope? The one problem is that these types of watches are generally pricey. Like, really pricey, if we’re talking about a complicated watch from a top Swiss brand.

The Executive Sun & Moon V. 3 is available on Massdrop right now for $230 ($250 for the gold-tone version) and includes the following functions: 21-jewel automatic in-house movement with 40 hours of power-reserve, stainless steel 42.5mm case with sapphire crystal and display case back, hours/minutes/seconds hands, day and date display, AM/PM indicator in the form of a rotating disc displaying either the sun or moon, and water resistance to 50m. With four dial options available, this is a great entryway for many people into the world of complicated timepieces. — Oren Hartov


Sonos Play:1 Speaker (Refurbished)
Save $30: The Sonos Play:1 speaker normally costs $149, but Sonos is selling certified refurbished models on its website for just $119 – you save an extra $30 per speaker. If you looking to add to your current Sonos system, or if you’re late to the party and just want to try one out, it’s a great chance to one (or more) Sonos speakers on the cheap.


Veja V-10 Suede Sneakers
Save 20%:Founded in 2004, French footwear brand Veja champions ecologically-friendly manufacturing and fair working conditions while producing a range of tasteful sneakers. One of its notable styles, the V-10, is made from ecologically tanned leather, organic cotton and wild rubber from the Amazon. If you’re in the market for a new pair of kicks and want a pair that doesn’t have as much of an impact on the environment, these are well worth the list price. But for a limited time, you can save 20 percent on a pair in light-brown suede at East Dane — that’s $28 off. — John Zientek
