Hello Buddy Carr Skateboard

I won’t mess around with talk of deck size or trucks because, although important, it’s really the graphics that stand out on this skateboard. And, hey, no tears if you’re not a skateboarder, you can always wear the T-shirt.

Hello is a collaboration between California based skateboarder Buddy Carr and New York based graphic designer Antonio Carusone.

T-shirt (Color: Black, White): $22.00

Pencil Socks, Notebook Socks

This might lean towards the slightly-inappropriate-for-work category (much like those wacky ties that are so bad they’re good, or sometimes just so bad they’re horrible), but these socks are just too good not to share. Even if you just wear them around the house, they’re funny enough to be forgivable. Also, check out the Kick the Habit Socks (not shown).

Versatile Cashmere 2-in-1 Gloves

It’s not even cold where I live and I’m already sort of obsessed with gloves and arm warmers. Sorry.

you don’t have to feel bad about splurging a bit because they act not only as daily-wear short gloves, but also have a button-on elbow length extension for super cold nights (and extra va-va-voom). Made from 100% Cashmere. Available in black or heather grey. One size.

These are just ridiculous but they make me happy.

Pleece Scarf

This pleece scarf (pleated fleece) scarf is perfect because it takes the warmth of fleece, not traditionally a great design material, and makes it more structured with the use of pleats.

“The items in the soft, warm Pleece Collection, designed by Marianne Abelsson, are made for use indoors and out. The collection includes hats, scarves, ponchos, and hoods, as well as pillows and throws in a lovely, pleated fleece fabric.”

Zip It Gear Passport Pocket Sock

I don’t know if you’ve ever been to a country where you feared your passport was in danger of sticky hands, but I sure have and I really really wished this was around then…(I think I got one of those thigh strap holders and it sucked, to put it bluntly. It was completely uncomfortable, which I should have expected, but I didn’t know any better. I ended up sticking my passport in my camera bag, which increased my fears about getting mugged on the streets about ten thousand times. A sock would have been much better.)
