Every week, our inbox is overflowing with news about gear, apparel, and tech news from around the world. In this feature, we will analyze the best of them. Today: Gerber’s small but mighty “Chonk” multi-tool impresses, Dr. Martens x Pleasures team up for a mule moment and the “Castelveltrano” finally comes out.
Sure, Gerber’s latest invention is basically a four-inch pry bar designed to open doors, remove nails, or crack a paint can seal, but it’s also equipped with five other tools (a dedicated nail puller , wire cutters, flat head screwdrivers and a bottle opener) for unexpected tasks. Clip it to your jeans, toss it in your pocket or clip it to your key ring – no matter where you take it, chances are you’ll find an excuse to use it.
Adsum + Merrell 1TRL MTL Sky Long
It’s a true city-country encounter with Adsum and Merrell’s Long Sky trail runner; built to withstand muddy and uncertain conditions – the shoe features a Vibram outsole, internal bootie and breathable TPU shank – it’s been outfitted with all the brand’s downtown sensibilities based in New York.
The handmade E1 is part of a new range of cost-effective turntables from Pro-Ject and is also designed for newcomers to the audiophile world: it is deliberately “plug and play” with preset tracking force and anti-skid. Available in three colors.
Todd Snyder Linen jersey T-shirt
Available in six sizes and six colors, these 100% linen t-shirts feature a relaxed fit and breathable fabric. It’s your ideal summer shirt, as long as you don’t put it in the dryer (it will shrink).
Dr. Martens Jorge by Pleasures Leather pumps
If a badass combat boot and a sleek clog were to mate, we can only imagine the resulting child would look something like the Dr. Martens x Pleasures Slingbacks (and we’re not mad about it). Featuring the iconic rubber sole and yellow stitching with a trendy open back, this is the ultimate summer shoe for punks and chillers.
Brightland Castelvetrano Olive Oil
Harvested in 2021, Brightland’s “Castelvetrano” olive oil has a polyphenol count (a micronutrient found in plants) of 668 mg/kg, nearly 5 times the average amount found in oils. The inaugural release of the Paragon Collection, which features “small batches of unique olive oils from around the world, in partnership with producers committed to their craft,” only 1200 bottles of the buttery aromatic oil have been made , and (you guessed it) sold out immediately. Keep an eye out for upcoming releases!

Mijenta Tequila Anejo Gran Reserva
We already love the Reposado de Mijenta, so the extra aging here for this tequila just brings out new flavors and complexity. Aged for a minimum of 18 months in four different oak barrels – American white oak, French oak, French acacia barrels and cherry barrels – this one features notes of dried fruits, agave, butterscotch and of coffee.
