Time for a 5 p.m. on a Friday edition of 10 Things We Want!
Duke Cannon Supply, $5-7
Duke Cannon makes no-frills soap and shampoo for men. It's high quality, masculine, and has an anti-bullshit flair. It also happens to be the soap that's modeled after the old U.S. army issued "bricks," and a portion of all proceeds go to military causes like Honor Flight—which sends veterans to visit their memorials in D.C. at no charge. That's a cause we can get behind.
Google Nexus Tablet 7, $229
The new thinner and faster Nexus 7 boasts the world’s sharpest 7” tablet screen and 1080 HD visuals. And did I mention we're giving one away for free? I did not. Get yo self a tablet.
Pampa Hi Lite, $44
It's fall, which means you might get dragged onto a hike or two. Don't bust the bank for a pair of boots you'll wear just a handful of times. The Pampa Hi Lite's are cheap and provide a time-tested (like 60-year-old), iconic design.
The brah-iest of coffe table books: Surf 100 is a collection of the world's best wave spots, written by Transworld SURF’s editors.
Trophy Hooks, $15
If your landlord won't allow you to mount the grizzly you shot back in '02—that ASSHOLE—go with the next best thing: Hunter trophy hooks. You can hang your coat on them. Which is more sanitary than stuffing it in a taxidermied animal.
The Wire Poster Project, $TBA
"It's a thin line between heaven and here." "Come at the king, best not miss." "This is me yo, right here." And all those Wire lines were just from the first season. It's high time the legendary show got something like these typographic posters, with each edition representing one of the 60 different epigrams that preceeded each episode. They'll be on sale soon.
Square Cash, $Free
Square's newest innovation is "Square Cash," which allows you to easily send money to your friends with no surcharges. You don't even need to create an account. The money will show up in your
dealer's BFF's bank account in just one or two days.
Lot 40 Whiskey, $59
Named after the plot of land occupied by one of the ancestors of master blender Michael Booth, Lot 40 is a smoooooth, expertly distilled small-batch rye that combines prestige (a recent Whiskey Advocate "Canadian of the Year" award) with a relatively affordable price. Well, affordable for those special "sipping and sternly contemplating life" nights. Look for it at your friendly neighborhood booze store.
At the end of the day, it's a yellow shoe with purple accents. But KD has a nolstagic backstory about carefree childhood to help sell it. The KD VI PB&J hits stores October 19th.
Chevy Black Ops Truck, $N/A
APOCALYPSE TRUCK. The Chevy Silverado Black Ops concept truck promises everything you need to survive the next government shutdown: body armor, bed mounted vault, solar power, gas masks, generator, and a shovel. Unfortunately, it's unavailable for purchase. But it's pretty fuckin' sweet. They managed to fit, like, 400 Twinkies in the bed. Twinkies never go bad, you know.
