Fisher Moon Landing Space Pen

Fisher-Space-Pen-copy

Growing up, you wanted to be an astronaut. But you can’t go to space any more, though. Space is lame now that rich people have gentrified it. What you can do is write a note with this commemorative pen bemoaning the current state of the space program by listing all the ways it was better in the ’60s when people had to really want to go there and couldn’t just buy their way in.

MH40 Over Ear Headphones by Master and Dynamic

MH40 Over Ear Headphones

Master and Dynamic are relatively new in the headphone community, but they sure know how to leave a memorable first impression. Launched back in June of this year, the MH40 are retro-modern headphones without trying too hard; that effortless kind of organic cool that you know probably took countless hours to design, but look as easy and sexy as bed head on a rock star. The chassis is crafted of durable goods: forged aluminum with stainless steel accents, and the headband and earcups have calfskin leather on the outside, lambskin on the inside.

Price: $399
