Men’s style picks.

New Balance X Ball and Buck US574

Camo New Balance

Sometimes you find something that just screams “Merica!”, which is exactly what we heard when we found these New Balance X Ball and Buck US574s ($148).  These special edition shoes feature classic New Balance grey with touches of Ball and Buck Camo in 10oz duck cloth, and a blaze orange heel tab for that extra hunting flare. The first 176 shoes will come in a vintage 50cal ammo can and hand stamped numbered brass plate.

Transit Issue Key Chain

Apolis Key Chain

Once you start using a key fob, it is tough to go without, and the skillful craftsmen at Apolis know this rule all too well. The Transit Issue Key Chain ($38) is a leather key fob held together by four hand-stitched bar tacs.  Each key fob is hand crafted with MIL-SPEC hardware, giving you the long-lasting quality you look for in a key chain. Comes in three colors (above).

Famous Red Board Shorts

Lightning Bolt Board Shorts

Since the 1970s, Lightning Bolt has been a staple in the surfwear and surf supply scene.  In a partnership with Best Made Co., Lightning Bolt has introduced their Famous Red Board Shorts ($70).  Made from 100% cotton twill, these classic board shorts have corrosion resistant grommets, triple stitched seams, and bear both the Best Made Co. and Lightning Bolt logos on the left thigh.  They might not make you surf better, but they will last through all of your toughest spills.

Duke Cannon’s Big Ass Brick of Soap

Duck Cannon Supply Co.

With gels that make you smell like a romantic millionaire jet fighter pilot, it’s easy to overlook the old fashioned bar of soap. Despite the long name, Duke Cannon’s Big Ass Brick of Soap ($5) is exactly what you need to overcome the delusion that your body wash will make you look like Ryan Gosling.  This big soap brick is 3/4 lbs, lasts much longer than the average bar of soap, and contains steel cut grains for superior grip-ability. As Duke says, “Cure your mangina”.

Sam’s Natural Summer Survival Kit

Sam's Natural Products

Prepare your body for the Summer sun, stock up with Sam’s Natural Summer Survival Kit ($37.95).  These “natural products made in America by your fellow Americans” should give you just about everything you need to get through the heat of the Summer.  The kit comes with Sam’s Natural Campn Cool, Blood Orange Summer Skin Scrub, Summer Skin Rescue, Summer Wash, Triple Butter Summer Whip, Summer Skin Cool, and Coconut Lip Balm. Whether you are camping or at the beach, your skin could use this kit.

12 Society


Tim Lincecum, Michael Strahan, Kevin Love, Nas, and Nick Cannon want you to sign up for 12 Society ($39/month), and we agree with them.  This service sends you a monthly box of goodies, hand-picked by the gentlemen mentioned above (among other athletes/celebrities). Each box contains a retail value of at least $125, and if you don’t like the merch, no problem, returns are easy as pie. Seriously, sign up now.
