You know what they say: guys with big hands.... And there's no more clever way to make your hand look huge than by hiding your cold one in The Beast Koozie ($24). Made of foam, this oversized, muscular faux hand will keep your beer cold and make that guy giving you the evil eye from across room think twice about starting beef with a guy that has hands like the Hulk.
Being able to run to the nearest bar and have your growler filled with fresh beer is great. Trying to strap it down for the trip back? Not so much. Growler On Board ($30) is designed for just this purpose, holding up to three 1/2 gallon or 2L growlers in place in a seat, in your trunk, or on the floor. In addition, its low density foam construction means it also offers a bit of insulation, which is great for when you want a drink as soon as you get home. [Scouted by Sam]

Don't water your drink down with ice or keep your party focused around a ridiculous ice luge — if you want to serve you and your guests the coldest booze imaginable, grab yourself an Ice Jacket ($35). Made from polypropylene, the Jacket consists of a base/grip that fits on the end of most standard liquor bottles and a sleeve that wraps around the upper portion. Lock the sleeve into place, fill it with water, and stick it in the freezer for 7-8 hours, and you're bottle will be coated in a thick coating of ice that will keep it cold for hours.
Never fear the soggy cardboard six-pack again. The 6 Packer ($30) is a hard, more sturdy replacement, constructed from 3/16" laser-cut plywood and assembled — by you — with 1/2" screws and nuts. Once you've got it put together, it should hold longnecks, stubby bottles, and everything in between without ever blowing out.
Featuring an elevated bottom cut, the Cuts Crew Curve-Hem Shirt is an everyday essential for the modern man. Its rounded edge was designed with functionality in mind, eliminating bunching around the waist for a clean, tailored fit. The buttery soft texture is the result of a custom-engineered, tri-blend PYCA fabric and each shirt comes pre-shrunk so it's good to go for immediate wear. Keep it simple or layer it up, the Crew Curve-Hem has no limits.

Every piece of cast iron cookware that Finex makes it built to last for generations. These limited edition pieces are no different but arrive with a special dark gunmetal finish on the traditional brass and stainless steel ergonomic Speed Cool handle. Gunmetal accents were added to the Grill Pan, as well as both the 10" and 12" Skillet for a modern look that's polished to shine. The look pairs perfectly with the versatile, durable cast iron — which provides superior heat retention and can be used as a nearly indestructible cooking surface whenever and wherever you want to cook.
Give your next bottle of suds the Mexican wrestling treatment with one of these Luchador Bottle Openers ($13). Designed by Andres lhima, they come in either blue, red, or black, are made from a stainless steel and ABS with a rubberized coating, and apply one of three lock holds to your bottle for opening. The only bummer? The color and design is random and chosen at shipping, so you might find yourself going through several returns before snagging a particular model.
