To quote Madonna (something I’m not particularly fond of), “We are living in a material world.” To help you figure out which of the millions of material goods swirling around us is worth spending your hard-earned cash on, we have put together The Want List, consisting of the items we really love this week.
WINGS+HORNS x NEW BALANCE 580 DECONSTRUCTED
The original New Balance MT580 was developed as a trail shoe in 1996. To celebrate the 20th anniversary, Canadian brand wings+horns reimagined the sneaker, streamlining it down to just three pieces and utilizing premium leather. The minimalist sand colorway is deserving of a spot in every summer sneaker rotation.
NORTH DRINKWARE WASHINGTON PINT GLASS
Your new favorite beer glass is here. North Drinkware uses data from the U.S. Geological Survey to fashion the mold of 14,409-foot Mt. Rainier in Washington. (There are also models that feature Mt. Hood in Oregon and Half Dome in California’s Yosemite National Park.) The 16-ounce pint glass is handblown and is even safe to throw in the dishwasher.
ASTON MARTIN VANQUISH ZAGATO CONCEPT
Price unavailable, astonmartin.com
Making the Aston Martin Vanquish even more amazing isn’t easy. But design firm Zagato managed to pull it off. The concept car that was revealed at Villa d'Este has a body that is entirely carbon fiber and other subtle design tweaks that build upon the original while creating something entirely new.
FILSON AIR SCOUT
Inspired by the aircraft that U.S. Forest Service smokejumpers use, only 350 of Filson’s new Air Scout watch will be produced. The coin edge bezel gives the watch a very distinguished look and it comes with with a black leather, and red and khaki nylon straps so you can change up the appearance of the watch to suit your style.
BROOKS 150TH ANNIVERSARY B17 SADDLE
The B17 is one of Brooks’s most iconic saddles. Like most well-crafted leather goods, it’s stiff at first but breaks in wonderfully over time. To celebrate Brooks’s 150th anniversary, the company made a version with a copper-plated frame and rivets that provides a nice contrast to the black leather on the seat.
