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.
SAILOR JERRY X SCHOTT NYC MOTORCYCLE JACKET
There has always been a big overlap between tattoo culture and motorcycle culture, so it’s great to see icons from each world collaborate together. Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins is the godfather of tattooing and the rum brand that bears his nickname collaborated with legendary motorcycle jacket brand Schott. A Schott leather jacket is badass on its own, but things get cranked up to 11 when the jacket is adorned with a patch of Sailor Jerry’s flash art.
DUCATI SCRAMBLER CAFE RACER
If you’re looking for a motorcycle to go along with your motorcycle jacket, Ducati has created its first cafe racer bike. Building off of the already popular Scrambler, Ducati added some midcentury design elements such as clip-on handlebars with mirrors attached to the ends, 17-inch Pirelli wheels, and a number plate. The bike is still powered by the Scrambler’s 803cc engine but comes in a sleek “Black Coffee” color.
BOMBAS X SHAKE SHACK SOCKS
It’s rare that you look at a pair of socks and they make you hungry. But Bombas’s collaboration with Shake Shack do just that. Featuring Shake Shack’s famous burger logo and in the brand’s black-and-green colorway, the limited edition socks are ridiculously comfortable. Now, if you don’t mind, I need to go grab some lunch.
MOUNTAINSMITH TANACK LUMBAR PACK
Photographer Chris Burkard is a “must follow” on Instagram for anyone looking for visual inspiration from the natural world. But even if you don’t spend much time taking photos in Iceland, you will benefit from this lumbar pack (don’t call it a fanny pack) that Burkard worked on with Mountainsmith. With multiple carrying options and tons of storage compartments, it works as a camera bag, a day pack, and just about anything else.
NIKE X ROUNDEL ZOOM SPIRIDON
Price unavailable, nike.com
The inspiration for these sneakers comes from an unlikely source, a font. More specifically, the Johnston font that is featured throughout the London Underground system. British brand Roundel created a pattern of letters and numbers in the typeface and splashed them across the Nike Zoom Spiridon, one of Nike’s most underrated silhouettes. The shoes feature other unique details such as an iridescent Swoosh and a reflective 3M taping.
