Huckberry

Huckberry is a deal site that features special sales each week exclusively to members, and the products available change each week. Every week, I pick out a few of my favorite things from the week’s offering. Here are my picks for the week of October 24, 2011.

Stormy Kromer

Stormy Kromer’s classic wool cap is as simple as it is timeless. It’s a wool cap with a built-in ear flap to keep you warm when there’s a chill in the air. It’s been made in America for over a century, and its enduring style hasn’t changed much since its inception in 1903. Some of Stormy Kromer’s flannel shirts and work gloves are also available, and there are some hat styles aimed at women as well that our lady readers may be interested in.

Dynomighty Wallets

Carrying a big bulky wallet around in your pants can be uncomfortable. Of course there’s always the money clip option. But for those who want a wallet, just a slimmer one,  these thin, seamless origami-inspired wallets might be an option. They’re made with stitchless Tyvek, and offered in a variety of cheeky designs, including one featuring the Fonz.

Steven Shaver Designs

Steven Shaver makes things like cufflinks and clocks out of the parts of old muscle and sports cars.

There are other cool things available on Huckberry right now. To browse, you have to sign-up for the site. If you do, you get a $5 credit for being an AoM reader.  The reason that you must sign-up to browse and see the prices is that this is a members-only deal site, and the brands that offer their products for these special sales are only willing to offer those special prices to a small group and not to the public at large.

Triple Aught Designs

Triple Aught Designs, a company started by a former Army soldier, creates outwear that is both ruggedly stylish and field-tested tough.

Boreas

Tired of the arms race between the big outdoor companies, and the resulting gear that includes a bunch of unnecessary bells and whistles, Boreas was founded as a small company that makes gear that is simple, comfortable, and durable.

Smith Brand Bowties


Smith Brand Bowties are handmade by the company’s founder, Ian Smith, in San Francisco.

Huckberry is a deal site that features special sales each week exclusively to members, and the products available change each week. Every week, I pick out a few of my favorite things from the week’s offering. Here are my picks for the week of October 10, 2011. The sale ends in three days, so if you want to get a good deal on these products, sign-up, and order today.

BoomCase

I love it when people re-purpose old products to make something new. Designed by Dominic Odbert, the BoomCase is a speaker system encased in a vintage suitcase. Just connect your iPod and a strobe light to your BoomCase, and boom! instant party.

Old Calgary Cases

We all know how good it feels to slip into a Merino wool sweater on a cold day, or how a pair of socks made of the same material can keep us perfectly cool on a backpacking trip. So why not wrap your iPad in the same thing? Old Calgary makes simple, yet classy wool felt cases for all your digital devices. All Old Calgary cases are handmade in the USA.

Huckberry is a deal site that features special sales each week exclusively to members, and the products available change each week. We’re partnering up, and I was planning on doing a post each week highlighting what products were available that week. But it’s been a busy week for me, so this post is rather belated. So keep in mind that these deals are only good until Sunday.

This week on Huckberry was sports week, and there’s some seriously cool stuff on sale, including:

American Needle Hats


Specializing in throwback-style hats, American Needle reproduces awesome old baseball caps that span a range of time periods and styles. You will find snapback Phillies caps from the eighties and fitted wool Red Sox caps from the early 1900’s, amongst many others: everything a young (or old) man needs to appease his inner sports purist.

Leatherhead Balls

 


Leather Head Sports makes all of their throwback footballs, rugby balls, and medicine balls individually by hand in a workshop here in the US. I own one of their footballs, and it’s awesome. Leather craftsmanship at its finest. The balls are handsome enough to be displayed and rugged enough to be used. They make a perfect Christmas gift. If you want to see how they’re made, the craftsman behind Leather Head Sports did a post for AoM awhile back, taking us through the steps of making a football.

Eephus League Scorecards

Keeping score at a baseball game by hand is the only way to go, and your pleasure will be multiplied if you use this stitch-bound scorebook which includes 20 scoresheets, a scorekeeping reference card, stickers for you to note if the game took place in day or night, and if your team won or lost, a foldout starter’s guide to keeping score for anyone who is new to the art form, and autograph pages in the back for collecting player signatures. A great gift for a son’s first trip to the ballpark.

There are other cool things available on Huckberry right now, like throwback baseball bats. To browse, you have to sign-up for the site. If you do, you get a $5 credit for being an AoM reader.  The reason that you must sign-up to browse and see the prices is that this is a members-only deal site, and the brands that offer their products for these special sales are only willing to offer those special prices to a small group and not to the public at large.
