Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at tig@gearpatrol.com.

The best products are designed, conceptualized and crafted with heartfelt intent; and they often come from a brand that has a strong identity and sense of purpose. That’s exactly the impetus behind Pedro & Tailor, the newly launched brand aimed at bringing to life products that speak to the stories and places its co-founders Levi Tijerina and Josh Perez hold dear. Levi and Josh created Pedro & Tailor for everyone. It’s a brand that acknowledges their cultures while also transcending them; and the result is a collection of thoughtful products like the Algodon Organico Sweatshirt, Logo Tee and Corded Velveteen Hat. So if you’re in need of a wardrobe refresh, these are staple items with a story to tell.
