The city of Detroit is steeped in musical history. From Motown to garage rock, the city that Shinola calls home is synonymous with great music. And that rich history is part of the drive behind Shinola's entrance into the world of high end audio with the Shinola Runwell Turntable. They've enlisted the help of respected American turntable manufacturer VPI and outfitted each Runwell with a friction-free all-metal tonearm, and a modular phono preamplifier. Plus, a Ortofon 2M Blue phono cartridge comes standard with each unit. It also promises to satisfy more than just audiophiles, with a clean, classic design that makes for a beautiful centerpiece in any home audio setup.

Multi-tools are a staple of nearly every EDC kit. They also take up room in your pockets. The Leatherman Tread Wearable Multi-Tool moves the tools — and the ensuing bulge — from your pants to your wrist. Made from high-strength 17-4 stainless steel, it features multiple individual links that perform two or three jobs each, giving you a total of 25 tools including drivers, a cutting hook, box wrenches, a glass breaker, and the obligatory bottle opener. Available with a natural silver or black DLC finish.
Whether you're working or boozing late into the night, odds are you're going to wake up looking like Uncle Fester — at least around the eyes (the bald head is reserved for those with really dick friends). Nivea Eye Roller Gel ($9) is here to help you combat this condition. Harnessing the benefits of your skin's own Coenzyme Q10, which helps produce energy and works as an antioxidant to defend against free radicals, this gel glides on smoothly thanks to a rolling metal ball applicator, leaving you looking as fresh as those pantywaists that went to bed before last call.
The new Old Spice Fresh Collection ($5) at first seems a bit odd (who really wants to smell like "well-known lands" from across the globe?), but these subtle-scented antiperspirant/deodorants are indeed worthy of their worldliness. The destination-inspired, light-yet-manly scents include (in our rank of freshershist to fresh): Matterhorn ("smells like ice, wind & freedom"), Denali ("smells like wilderness, open air & freedom"), Cyprus ("smells like limes, an ocean breeze & freedom"), and Fiji ("smells like palm trees, sunshine & freedom"). Do your armpits a favor and introduce them to the world.
