Retro Sneakers, Rain Boots and a New Way to Store Your Vinyl

This Is the Want List


This is the Want List, a semi-frequent rundown of stylish new clothing, accessories and gear our editors are feeling for one reason or another—and, for lack of a better word, want. 

Today's edition includes functional performance wear, a retro sneaker collaboration, handsome office supplies, and a rotating display for your records. So, only the essentials.

mack weldon atlas collection
Mack Weldon

What it is: Mack Weldon's Atlas Collection is a new performance line that features lightweight, moisture-wicking, and water-resistant apparel that's meant to move. For now, it's sporting a full-zip jacket, half-zip jacket and joggers, available in a couple different colors.
Why we want it: Winter, spring and the in-between months need versatile gear. This can be that gear.

grovemade leather mousepad

What it is: Grovemade's new vegetable-tanned leather mousepads look good and stay in place as you work. It comes in two sizes, and you can add an optional hand-sanded hardwood tray for your pen.
Why we want it: Working is easier when you like your workspace and office supplies.

seavees bolinas rain boots

What it is: The Bolinas Boot is Seavees' first 100% waterproof rain boot. Matte-finish natural rubber is paired with a grooved outsole for better traction, plus a soft knit lining and a handy pull tab.
Why we want it: Spring is coming, and with these on your feet, you can confidently walk straight through those puddles.

black ivy book
Reel Art Press

What it is: This new book, Black Ivy: A Revolt in Style, chronicles a period in American style/history when Black men across the country adopted OCBDs, loafers and soft shoulder three-button jackets—aka the clothing of a privileged elite—and made it their own. 
Why we want it: It's a glimpse into how Black culture subverted the era's dominant look, while showing us some damn handsome photos of icons like Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Sidney Poitier.

todd snyder victory running shoes
Todd Snyder

What it is: Todd Snyder's latest collaboration sees the brand partner with Massachusetts-based Victory Sportswear for a trio of running shoes that are handmade in the USA, with retro looks and old-school Vibram soles.
Why we want it: Who cares if you run, these are just some great looking sneakers. 

toneoptic rpm record storage

What it is: Toneoptic's rpm Special Limited Edition unit affixes to your wall with a sliding shelf and rotating display. It lets you store up to 75 records and conveniently access them when the time comes.
Why we want it: Your vinyl deserves better than a bookshelf.

uniqlo u spring/summer 2022

What it is: For spring/summer 2022, Uniqlo U once again enlists the brand's R&D center in Paris, along with artistic director Christophe Lemaire. The new collection features pared-back silhouettes, light jackets, relaxed-fit pants and other essentials, including the blouson you see here. It all goes live February 24.
Why we want it: The collection captures the currents trends, but at a price far more affordable than anything you'll see on high-fashion runways.
