It doesn't really matter what you need it for — unless you're going with a gold-handled model and a pimp-style outfit, most walking sticks don't enhance your look. The Top & Derby Cane ($70) aims to change all that. It features a handle with a cast aluminum core and a soft silicone grip, a solid American black walnut shaft with a coating that both protects the wood and brings out the natural grain, and thermoplastic rubber tip that's resistant to abrasions and sports sneaker-inspired tread for added traction. Expected to arrive this September.
We understand — no one really likes doing the laundry. But up until now you haven't had much of a choice. The new MeUndies 365-Pack ($3,250) gives you one. Like a magical maid that appears with a freshly-pressed set of ball-cuppers each morning, this incredible deal provides you with a new pair of boxer briefs for every day of the year. Yes, that's 365 pairs. Yes, it's less than $10 per pair. Yes, you're going to need a larger underwear drawer. And no, we're pretty sure they don't sell lifetime subscriptions.
Most "racing" watches sport nothing more than a fancy chronograph to count lap times. But the Halda Race Pilot Watch ($TBA) isn't most watches. This unique timepiece features two interchangeable modules that allow you to switch between a traditional or digital face as you please. The mechanical module is an automatic chronograph with a Zenith movement and a 50-hour power reserve, while the digital race module packs info about 150 of the world's best-known race tracks inside, and uses that into to calculate average speed, measure lap times down to 1/100th of a second, and a stainless steel case back that's designed to work as a resonance system, letting you hear your alarms above the din of the engine.
When is a backpack not a backpack? When it's part of the Bootlegger Modular Pack System ($190). This new series of bags is based on a single Triple-Tamp Suspension back panel that connects to each of the bags and provides the shoulder straps, while also allowing for instant adjustment of the fit, moving the bag closer or farther away from your back depending on the conditions. The full set includes the suspension, a hydration pack, a normal day pack, and a dry pack and should ship this summer; other combinations that only include the suspension and one or two of the bags are also available. But where's the point in that?

Most backpacks are designed purely to hold stuff. The Tessel Jet Pack Backpack ($60) is designed to do that too, we suppose, but also instill a child-like sense of discovery. It aims to do so via its back, which is inspired by geometric building blocks and encourages you to play with the interlocking triangles. Other features include a small outer pocket for phones, wallets, and such, and a main interior with a faux fur-lined laptop compartment, an integrated iPad sleeve, and slots for pens and pencils.
Plaid, solid, or stripes — bring these pieces with you, and you'll be all set, all week.

With fifty-nine pivoting minute hands, eleven rotating triangles to mark the hours, and a sliding trap door, the Harry Winston Opus XIII Watch ($TBA) isn't the craziest watch we've seen — but it's close. Developed in collaboration Ludovic Ballouard, it also features a 44.25 mm case in 18K white gold, a sapphire-crystal display back, a 35-hour power reserve, water resistance down to 30 meters, and a hand-sewn black alligator leather strap. Limited to just 130 units, or the total number of people that can actually figure out what time it is by looking at the face. [via]
It doesn't matter if you're an athlete or an outdoorsman — or both — as these new Suunto Ambit2 GPS Watches ($400-$650) include a model for everyone. The Ambit2 S is sleek and lightweight, build specifically for cycling, running, swimming, and training use, and as such offers pace, route navigation and tracking, and heart rate monitoring. The standard Ambit 2 is a more rugged affair, with a fiberglass-reinforced case, 50 hours of battery life in GPS mode, altitude, vertical speed, barometric pressure, and temperature readouts. However, the latter also offers all the sports functions of the 2 S, making it the easy choice if you don't want to miss a single feature.
