Chuck Taylor Moto Leather Jacket

The classic Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker gets a seasonal refresh, with the “Moto Leather Jacket”. Taking styling cues from the original and iconic Schott black leather jacket, this release fine tunes the workings of a successful, limited edition shoe previously crafted by the leather jacket makers, Schott NYC themselves. The sneaker features a genuine leather upper, metal zipper detail around the eyelets and palatable, geometric stitching to accent the leather jacket inspiration. You can get these Converse All Stars now as either a high-top or as a low. However, brown leather gets only the low option, while the black leather gets both. Order them at the Converse online store.

Silver WiFi Cufflinks

Even though quite some time has passed since BigBerries first put the spotlight on a novelty pair of USB cufflinks, the demand for them (or at the very least the production of them) does not seem to be going away any time soon. Now, from being merely quirky, conceptual prototypes, functional cufflinks of varying types are becoming routinely available for you to purchase. That said, you can add these polished silver USB cufflinks with 2GB of storage capacity to your collection. Additionally, these cufflinks purportedly serve as a Wifi hotspot for your devices, making it so now you don’t have to mooch from the local coffeehouse to get your data. You can order them at Brookstone.

Franc Vila Intrepido

Lighter, slimmer, yet better performing than its predecessors, the Franc Vila Intrepido Collection is an evolution in contemporary watch design.

After two years of research, Franc Vila unveils NanoTube Titanium and Deep NanoTube Titanium Carbon-Graphene Composite; two materials the watchmaker says provide absorption and prevent shock damage.
