If you haven’t already heard the great news, Nordstrom is selling jeans that look pre-soiled and muddy for $425. Phew! I have been looking for these for years, glad someone has finally filled this void. These Nordstrom Mud Jeans are called Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans (makes total sense to me). If this is your type of thing go ahead and send me your favorite pair of jeans and I will muddy them up for just $100. Genius!

Amazon continues with their quest to take over the world. Their latest product is a camera named the Amazon Echo Look ($200). After watching the Echo Look informational video, I realize that I am clearly not the target market. This isn’t a security camera but more of a wardrobe helper. Ok? Amazon Echo is still built-in so you can ask about the weather,...

The Nubrella is a hands-free umbrella that is worn like a backpack. It is super functional, can take some pretty heavy winds, and will most likely keep you dryer than a traditional umbrella.

At first glance this LED Flashlight Wrist Watch had me shaking my head side-to-side, as in, this is a bad idea. While I might not be buying one today, I have come around to see this gadget as quite useful. Plenty of scenarios where this flashlight watch would come in handy come to mind. Doing electrical work, trying to light a fire at camp, working underneath a car for law enforcement (clearing a room with...

We don’t talk about apparel too much, unless it is a bit gadget related. This will be an exception. Not sure why. The York Athletics latest shoe, The Henry ‘Fighters Edition’ ($115) comes in a plain black and white with design with a brown leather pull-on strap at the rear. I love the clean simplicity of this shoe so much that I tempted to buy a pair. My main problem is that I can dirty white shoes in record time. This leads me to,...

A Polish company called Wealth Solutions has come up with a line of watches named the Spirit Watches. Their plan is to partner with independent Swiss watchmakers with the differentiator being they will have a drop or two of rare alcoholic beverages inside. Huh?
