via www.inventorymagazine.com Red Wing’s Caverly Chukka, a style which doesn't seem to be offered by many of the brand's stockists, and was duly impressed. The timeless two-eyelet boot fits my utilitarian requirements for everyday leather footwear, and would work seamlessly with any casual jeans and T-shirt uniform. Made in Minnesota on the Postman last with a Gro-Cord Medallion sole, I can only imagine how incredible they'd look after years of regular wear. Continue reading

Dealing the photo prints and graphics is exciting, yet can also quickly end up being too bold and over the top. Nike opted for a toned down black/white version of a picture of the beautiful Japanese cherry blossoms, resulting in an easy to wear, yet special version of the sneaker. Cherry blossom season in Japan is traditional in April and May every year. This time you get to celebrate it a little... Continue reading

The protective casing serves initially as just that, however what sets it apart is its ability to interchange between a number of convenient functions that include a breathalyzer, a speaker, a solar charger, an external battery coupled with external storage space, and an e-reader to start. The case comes in two parts: the bumper which not only protects the phone, but also serves as a sensor for your pulse, temperature and body impedance because why not; and the back plates, each with its own Batman utility belt-like function.

If less is more, the Porsche 911R might be everything. The German automaker took the 4-liter engine from the GT3 RS and matched it to a six-speed manual transmission. It threw out the back seats and air conditioner, and used carbon fiber to bring the car's weight down to just over 3,000 pounds. The result is a $184,900 car that will go to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and likely be an absolute thrill to drive Continue reading

via www.inventorymagazine.com Homespun socks are some of softest, most comfortable work socks I think I’ve owned. The secret is in the predominantly cotton construction, with added wool for warmth and just enough synthetic material to keep them returning to their original shape. They look just like a classic pair of work socks, but are far removed in texture from the scratchy varieties we’re all surely familiar with. Homespun Dustbowl Work Socks Continue reading
