Up until this week, we would never had considered ourselves jerky connoisseurs. But that was before the folks at House of Jerky sent us their Give It Some Game pack ($57). Filled with some of the best dried meat we've ever tasted, the pack doesn't include your average convenience store jerky — you get a nice selection of Buffalo, Venison, Ostrich, Elk, and, our definite favorite, Alligator. All of it had a great taste and texture, and we can easily say it's the best we've ever had. If you don't want to splurge on the variety pack, you can buy each separate, or choose from tons of other flavors.
Williams-Sonoma claims that these apples grow to a circumference of up to 17-inches. While we're a little frightened at the possible genetically-engineered girth, that's mighty impressive. After they're picked in the fall, the Colossal Caramel Apples ($22) are rushed to the candymaker who coats them in caramel and Guittard dark chocolate. Available in male or female.
Clinton C. Filson got his start outfitting prospectors on their way to the Klondike Gold Rush at the end of the 19th century. The C.C.F. line of workwear from Filson bears his initials and carries on the Filson tradition of high-quality clothing that's versatile and tough. Made with a durable nylon shell with quilted polyester insulation, the C.C.F. Quilted Utility Jacket is compact and lightweight, making it an ideal outer layer as the weather begins to turn in the Fall, and in early Spring when there's still a chill in the air. In the colder months of Winter, it's perfect to place underneath a heavier coat as an insulating layer, making it a true three-season workhorse. Each jacket is finished with action-back shoulder pleats, insulated hand-warmer pockets, a metal zipper, and is priced right to be your go-to, throw-it-on layer this Fall.

Oris was founded in 1904 in the village of Hölstein which is surrounded by the Waldenburg Valley. The Calibre 115 draws inspiration from that location and continues the company's rich tradition of premium mechanical timepieces. The new timepiece features a fully skeletonized movement — including the barrel at 12 o'clock — so the watchmaker's talents are on full display. As you wind the crown, the mainspring coils until it's fully wound and ready to deliver ten days of uninterrupted power. It's housed within a 44mm brushed titanium case that employs a design passed down from a 1938 model and supplemented by a jet engine turbine blade motif introduced into the Big Crown ProPilot's bezel a few years ago. Additional details include Super-LumiNova filled hands and indices, double-sided anti-reflective domed sapphire glass, and a multi-piece titanium bracelet or a black leather strap.

Daniel Craig's direct hand in shaping the wardrobe for James Bond has been well documented, and his earliest influence on modern Bond style is reflected in the Sunspel Riviera polo. Worn by Craig in the early moments of Casino Royale while in the Bahamas, the polo was hand selected for the film after being pulled from Sunspel's archives and altered to a more modern silhouette. Originally designed by the owners of Sunspel in the 1950's to be worn in the heat of the French Riviera, the mesh fabric was custom developed to provide the maximum amount of cooling to the wearer. Almost an oversized piqué, the fabric is truly unique and now instantly recognizable thanks to Bond. It's cut short and comfortably trim, and is always meant to be worn untucked. Available in black, white, and navy (as worn in Casino Royale), it's ideal for the summer heat anywhere your mission may take you.
