Graphene is one of the most indestructible and incredible materials known to man; in fact it was actually discovered by Nobel Prize winners in 2010 so you know this is a legit material. Vollebak has taken this fabric and created a ten layer composite that is touted as being more bulletproof than steel and used it to coat their jackets for this upcoming experimental prototype. Each jacket - which comes exclusively in a black Graphene - is one part coat, one part science experiment and one part beta testing of one of the most exciting fabrics being used in menswear. The jacket will launch in the summer of 2018 and the waiting list is currently open on Vollebak's website.

Apex Trunk by Kelly Slater
This one is for anyone that grew up watching Kelly Slater crush waves and revolutionize surfing. His new clothing company Outerknown has just released a new surf trunk modeled after the ones that Kelly used to compete in. The short is made from 4.9 ounce recycled-polyester fabric and features a 4-way stretch and PFOA-free water-repellency to help you dry quickly. Like all of Outerknowns other offerings, these are crafted using sustainable practices so you can feel good wearing them. Available in five different colors and shipping now, these are the perfect performance trunks for the modern active man.
Massdrop x Naked & Famous 14-Oz Selvage Denim
Looking to upgrade your daily denim? Check out this selvage jean collaboration between Massdrop and Naked & Famous. They've used a custom rope-dyed selvage from Okayama, Japan that has been woven on vintage shuttle looms. The result is a yarn that has waves, bumps and different thicknesses throughout. These are a bit heavier than your typical Levis and they take around 3 to 4 weeks to break in. Like all raw denim, these get better with age and after a few weeks the rigid, durable fabric will produce wear patterns that reflect your own style and use.
