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.
COLEMAN MATTE BLACK COOLER
This cooler is the perfect mashup of retro and modern. The guts of the design is classic and no-frills like something out of the ‘50s but the matte black paint job feels very right now. The cooler is 54 quarts, which is big enough to hold 85 cans, and it has a sturdy steel latch and handles.
XBOX ONE 1TB HALO: THE MASTER CHIEF COLLECTION BUNDLE
Revealed ahead of E3, the latest version of the Xbox One has a massive one-terabyte hard drive to store all of your games and media. The new console features an updated controller with a 3.5mm headset jack to make talking smack to your gaming opponents easier. The bundle also includes Halo: The Master Chief Collection so you might want to tell your friends you won’t be seeing them for awhile.
MCLAREN SPECIAL OPERATIONS P1
Price unavailable, mclaren.com
For some, owning a drool-inducing, knee-wobbling McLaren P1 isn’t enough. For those discerning customers, there’s McLaren’s Special Operations where owners of the 900hp beasts can customize the hypercar. This iteration was inspired by the devil with its customized red-and-black color pattern that is reflected in the body, wheels and interior.
LARRY DAVID BEACH TOWEL
You could have a standard-issue beach towel in a primary color or you could have one with Larry David’s sunburned face on it. The choice is pretty simple. Both will keep you dry, but only one is pretty, pretty good.
STUMPTOWN NITRO COLD BREW COFFEE
The best craft beers are now increasingly available in cans and now the same holds true for craft cold brew coffee. Legendary Portland roasters Stumptown have taken their high-octane cold brew, which had previously been available in bottles and boxes, and canned it. The coffee has a creamy flavor that will make you want to chug it, after which you’ll be amped up enough to crush the can on your head.
