Wear A Piece Of 283-Year-Old Shipwreck

Aye, Maties, if you’re feelin’ a bit swashbucklin’ today, then you may want to give a look to Gavin Haengel’s Sunken Treasure Jewelry project now going on at the Kickstarter. In all seriousness, Haengel has done a fine job of piecing together a man-friendly collection (without excluding the women) of jewelry designs, and what truly makes them unique is that each piece is cast with silver from a 1622 shipwreck. That’s older than Titanic, folks (by about 283 years). The ship involved was the Nuestra Señora de Atocha. It was caught in a hurricane and sunk off the coast of Read More

Slab Wallet, For The Tech Savvy Traveler

Over the holidays, yours truly decided (finally) to “remove the filing cabinet hanging under half” of his butt, to paraphrase Mr. Jerry Seinfeld. You might say (or he might) that I went on “a successful pocket diet.” This happened, however, not because I started carrying a purse, but because I made the shift to a minimalist wallet. I will not go back. The experience renewed my interest in wallets as a whole. Unfortunately, the market is close to saturated with wallet hopefuls. Close, because occasionally one comes along like the Slab wallet from designer Vladimir Pashkov of Montreal, Canada. Pashkov’s Read More

The Leather Coppola

InStash is nothing if not The New Yorker of product review sites, quick of wit and always ready with a phrase that lilts duskward, a verbal reverse phototrophism.  If a product doesn’t inspire high-falutin’ lexical grabass, it’s a dud.  In that vein: check out the word chops on the scribblers for Hammacher  Schlemmer, catalog retailer and large online vendor. Describing this leather coppola (driving cap), they slide out, like a hundred dollar bill, such phrases as “vegetable-tanned” and “doffing politely” while finally spreading across the table a stack of currency in the form of “the cap’s low profile resists wind and will Read More

You Need A Yes Man

There are a plethora of wristwatches on the market — even a significant amount on Kickstarter, where we found Yes Man — but few of them hit their funding goals as quickly as this one almost has. (Still 30 days left in the cycle, and just $2,300 to go!) Part of what makes Yes Man stand out is its innovative strap design. Like many watches, the company uses leather for an elegant look, but they’ve forgone the traditional hole fasteners for a series of slots that reduce wear and tear and offer the perfect fit no matter what your wrist Read More

Pebble Steel: The EInk Smartwatch Gets An Upgrade

Pebble makes a fine looking watch, of that there’s no doubt. When the initial product launched via Kickstarter and managed to rack up seven figures before its closing date, it was only a matter of time before the company started planning the followup. Well, this being CES 2014 week, what better time than the present to debut the Pebble Steel. The screen is smaller, but the elegant eInk screen is still there along with a metal body that makes this thing look a lot more watch-like. On the sides there is a metal connector and tactile metal buttons to add Read More
