The Best Men’s Camp Collar Shirts to Shop this Spring

The camp collar shirt has been a menswear staple since the early 1900’s, but only recently found its way back into the lexicon of the modern man. For a long time, it was the shirt of choice for your uncle who gets way too drunk at the family function, or that creepy guy who won’t stop hitting on your friends on Ocean Drive. But no more! We are here to reclaim the camp collar and restore it to it’s former glory with a list of the best men’s camp collar shirts you can find right now.

How to Wear a Camp Collar Shirt

Camp collars are incredibly versatile pieces of summer clothing. You can wear it all the way buttoned up if you want to appear a bit more formal, or unbutton it a bit and let the notched collar really do its thing. Camp Collars can be the loudest part of your outfit, the quietest, and everything in between. They come in a wide variety of materials, patterns, and cuts, so there is sure to be one for everybody. They work well just on their own on a hot day, or can be layered under any kind of jacket and be worn as a semi formal piece.

1. CMMN SWDN Beige Ture Shirt
SSENSE

CMMN SWDN came in hot this year with the fringe camp collar design, which adds beautiful texture and movement to the otherwise simple piece. The multicolored stripes are a wonderful touch as well.

17. Sacai Rayon Shirt
SSENSE

Sacai is obviously known for its Nike collabs, but the brand has been severely underrated in general. Chitose Abe’s expert design shows through even with a piece as simple as this one, with a subtle rib trim on the cuffs and behind the arm of this shirt. It’s also made of a very lightweight rayon fabric to keep you nice and cool all summer.

Peacock is partnering with live stream app NTWRK to drop an exclusive collection of Bel-Air-inspired sneakers, set-used props and wardrobe, and fan collectibles, with all proceeds going towards Coded by Kids—a Philadelphia based tech education nonprofit that focuses on tech startup-focused entrepreneurship programs for underrepresented groups.

Now as you all know, the original Fresh Prince of Bel-Air series that ran from 1990 to 1996 was renowned for its incorporation of fresh (or phat as they called it back then) urban and hip-hop style into the show, and while this new Bel-Air series has some big shoes to fill in that regard, they’re already getting the ball rolling with this new NTWRK partnership. 

Some of the items included in this collection are:

ONE37pm spoke with NTWRK president Moksha Fitzgibbons about how this cool collection came to be, and what else we can expect from the NTWRK team in the future.

NTWRK

ONE37pm: Thanks for speaking with us Moksha! For those that are just now being introduced to NTWRK, could you walk us through what we can expect from this collection?

Moksha: No problem! For those that don’t know, NTWRK is a live streaming entertainment platform where you can get the chance to win, in this case, official Bel Air merchandise, which are highly coveted and desirable products. For example, we have the highly coveted sneaker collection Bel Air Kicks. Getting access to those collectibles are top priority, and it’s a mix of products. We also have another set that is all about the show and you can see what people are wearing. It’s all about meaningful engagement and brand love.

ONE37pm: How did this partnership with Bel Air come to be and what can we expect?

Moksha: We looked at the passion point of audience programming and what they are interested in and figured it made sense.

ONE37pm: The original Fresh Prince show was known for its television impact when it came to urban style and fashion, do you think Bel Air can recapture that?

Moksha: I think so! I don’t want to speak for the Bel-Air team as they would know better than I do, but I definitely think Bel-Air already has that infatuation to where they can deliver on that mission. They just wrapped up their first season so we have to let it play out, but they are well on their way with their various collaborations. They are also very in tune with their programming and marketing strategies, as well as being very fashion-forward. It speaks to their ambition for that mission of being style innovators.

ONE37pm: Last but not least, what else has NTWRK been up to lately?

Moksha: We are working on so many things here at NTWRK! We have a continued commitment to creators that have consumer desirability. We are also helping to build up a pool of creators like Mr. Flower Fantastic. Additionally, we are working on events that surround passion points such as basketball for example that have collectives all around that are made for specific moments.

We have some festival stuff coming too! We are forever trying to innovate and enhance the experience for our consumers. We recently launched creator pages where creators can develop their own specific community and consumers can follow them. Things are developing really fast for us, and we’re getting into the trading card market too! We want to continue to build!

You can keep up with both NTWRK and the Bel Air series on Instagram.

A Timeline of the 15 Coolest Croc Collabs

It’s funny to think that the shoes that once made us uncomfortable with their style but comfortable on foot are still clogging around the streets to this day. From an outsider’s perspective, Crocs jumped right into the competitive footwear industry. On account of being the world’s ugliest shoe, Crocs slowly started to make their mark when they toyed with the idea of new colorways, designs, and Jibbitz making the shoes a bit less bizarre and a tad more flavorful. 

Two decades later, Crocs has continued to prove that they are here for the long haul. Although they will always be known as the “what are those” shoes, it will place no bearing on the brand’s bandwidth. To date, Crocs has extended its reach by working directly with big-name brands and artists to produce limited-edition clogs. Have you seen the recent announcement of the Jeff Staple X Crocs dropping on April 14th, 2022? 

If truth be told, these not so stylish clogs have substantially impacted the fashion industry, especially once comfort was put at the forefront of fashion leaders’ minds. Balenciaga, one of the world’s prominent fashion brands, bought into Crocs back in 2018, making waves at Paris Fashion Week. 

As a result of this odd match, people’s eyes opened to the idea and value of Crocs. From there on out, what people knew the brand originally for—which was its inability to focus on style—completely shifted. Notable brands like Lucky Charms, Hidden Valley Ranch, and Space Jam, to name a few, started to work alongside Crocs to put their own unique twist on the shoe. Below are some of the coolest Croc collabs of all time from the years since the brand’s inception.

The History of Crocs

Crocs were born and raised in Boulder, Colorado, by Lyndon “Duke” Hanson and George Boedecker Jr. Initially, the foam-based shoe was designed as a comfort-driven boating shoe. Sticking to the brand’s core, bringing the shoe back to its roots and right to the Sunshine State of Florida was practical. Hanson and Boedecker Jr. debuted the shoe at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show with only 200 pairs on deck. By the end of the event, they were sold out. 

Based on the promising response, the Crocs team took it viral as the “look” of the shoe did not affect the value of comfort. What was designed as a single-use boat shoe has now expanded to over 120 variations sold worldwide, a testament to the brand’s mission of comfort over style. 

Devoted fans of the Crocs brand took it to the extreme when they created a fan-made Crocs Day. October 23rd, most popularly known as Croctober, is a fancied period where Crocs usually announces brand collaborations. 

The Crocs Collabs, a Timeline (from newest to oldest)

The value placed on Crocs’ collaborations with brands goes without saying. As the brand progresses into new spaces, we take a look back at the pairs that were pivotal in its growth starting with the newest and going fifteen pairs back to some of the oldest. Without further ado, a timeline of some of the coolest Croc collabs of all time.

The Lucky Charms Crocs
StockX

Never say there isn’t a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow because if you were able to get your hands on a pair of these, I’d have to say you legitimately struck gold. With luck on your side, Lucky Charms was able to work with Crocs to make a flavorful collaboration “Magically Delicious.” Unfortunately, at this moment, there are no more retail-priced pairs available and can only be purchased on resell sites like Goat or StockX.

Palace x Crocs
StockX

If there was one brand to do it, it would be Palace. Rare, majestic, and highly sophisticated—the jungle camouflage crocs seemingly blend into the mix of the previous work Crocs has forested. They are available in two colors ways, Palace Desert and Palace Camo, with the desert pair featured above.

Salehe Bembury x Crocs
StockX

A new mold. A nature-inspired look. A whole new dimension. Renowned footwear designer Salehe Bembury paired up with Crocs to create a new-fashioned silhouette of clogs, the Crocs Pollex Clog. The first drop involved two colorways, and now word on the street is that there are two more that will be making an appearance in the collection. These once $85 USD clogs—in the colorway Cucumber—are now being sold for the hefty price of around $370 USD on resale sites.

Hidden Valley Ranch x Crocs
StockX

Eating wings? Ranch. Having a pizza? Ranch. Indulging in a salad? Ranch. It’s by no surprise that Hidden Valley Ranch, a staple in everyone’s home (regardless of its form), has made its mark in the fashion industry. Taking a bite into the company’s foundation of “spreading ranch love,” it seems proper that a committed brand of comfort and innovation decided to ranch out with Hidden Valley.

Free and Easy x Crocs
StockX

What do Free & Easy and Crocs have in common? A few things. Take a trip down memory lane and go back to Crocs root as a boating shoe. Then compare it with designer, Kevin Cricosta’s love for the Golden Age of 70s West Coast Surf. At heart, both of these brands have ties to the big blue sea, making it almost impossible to not work together. Via StockX, you can embrace the Free & Easy way of livin’ too.

Top 10 LEGO Batman Sets

LEGO Batman debuted in 2006 and ran for two years, giving us some amazing sets and an undeniably nostalgic video game to accompany it. The theme mysteriously disappeared at the end of 2008, only to return again with a SDCC/NYCC exclusive Dark Knight Batman minifigure released in 2011 announcing a full wave of LEGO DC Super Heroes Sets to be released in 2012. Since then, the last ten years have given us some awesome LEGO DC and Batman sets, so I thought it’d be fun to celebrate the big anniversary with a Top 10 list of the best LEGO Batman sets ever released! 

Before we dive in, here are some ground rules. For the sake of the article, any LEGO set that contained at least one Batman minifigure and/or Batman branding will be eligible for this list. While there have been some awesome DC and Justice League sets over the years, if the set didn’t include Batman, then it won’t count here.

With that being said, let’s get into it!

10. The Batmobile: Two-Face’s Escape
Amazon

Released as a part of the very first Batman wave in 2006, this set was an instant classic. The Batmobile, to me, is the definitive minifig-scale LEGO Batmobile: it’s just reminiscent enough of existing batmobile models to feel familiar, yet unique enough that it stands out as its own model. Add in the iconic LEGO Batman minifigure and the classic black-and-white Two-Face minifig, and this set is an undeniably awesome mark in LEGO Batman history!

9. The Dynamic Duo: Funhouse Escape
Amazon

When I got back into LEGO back in 2012, this was my favorite set from the LEGO DC Super Heroes inaugural wave. In a lot of ways, I still think this set was the best value for your money that LEGO DC has ever offered, but let’s explore why. For $39.99, this was your first chance to get Batman, Robin, Harley Quinn, the Joker, and the Riddler all in one place. Throw in the awesome Bat-cycle and the Joker’s Funhouse build, and this set was worth every penny. Surprisingly, it hasn’t gone up much in value over the years, so this is a set I’d highly recommend for someone just starting out with their LEGO DC/Batman collection. 

8. Jokerland
Amazon

Released in 2015, Jokerland was a ground breaking set. It was the debut of the comic-style Beast Boy and Starfire, which was a great way for collectors to round out their Teen Titans collection. Add in Batman and his Rogues Gallery of Joker, Penguin, Harley Quinn, and Poison Ivy and this set was destined to be a blast! Personally, I loved the individually and play value in this set: Harley had her motorcycle ride, Penguin had his Duck Ferris Wheel, Poison Ivy had her drop ride, and Joker had his live of terror that gave each villain their own setting to fight off the heroes in. I love how this set felt like several settings packed into one theme park, and that’s a big reason why this will always be a Top 10 set for me.

7. The Batcave: The Penguin and Mr. Freeze’s Break-In
Amazon

If you were a kid in 2006 (or even now,) this was a set you probably begged your parents to buy. Who didn’t want the first ever LEGO Batcave?! Especially when you consider the inclusion of Batman, Robin, Mr. Freeze, Alfred, and The Penguin with his Penguin Minions, it’s amazing how much value you got for $89.99 back in the day (good luck finding one complete for under $300 these days!)

6. Arkham Asylum Breakout
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ja4BNMR2pE
Amazon

Released in 2013, this is my favorite Arkham Asylum set of the three released to date. The gothic feel of Arkham really comes to life in this set, and the inclusion of the Dr. Harleen Quinzel minifigure is a nice touch. There was a great Arkham Asylum released in the LEGO Batman Movie wave, however, that version includes villain minifigures that are all in their orange jumpsuits. While that is thematically correct, I like getting villains in their actual costumes, so this one wins out for me on that basis. The build itself is the cherry on top, and it solidifies this set’s spot on the Top 10 list! 

5. Classic TV Series Batcave
Amazon

The Adam West Batman series has had a multitude of toys made over the years (especially in the last decade or so,) and this has to be one of the most comprehensive offerings from the series. This set includes it all: every main recurring villain from the series, Batman, Robin, Alfred, and even Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson! You can send Bruce and Dick down the Batpoles to change them into their alter ego as the Caped Crusader and Boy Wonder! The set depicts part of Wayne Manor up top, and the entirety of the futuristic Batcave from the beloved series. As if all of that wasn’t enough, the set also comes with a Bat-Cycle, Batcopter, and the first version of the iconic 1966 Batmobile. Ka-Pow! 

4. 2021 UCS Tumbler
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MlqtZf6S2c&ab_channel=MiniSuperHeroesToday
Amazon

The Dark Knight is a fan favorite among Batman movies. From the realistic take on the Caped Crusader and his Rogues Gallery to the awesome gadgets, there’s no doubt that Christopher Nolan’s trilogy will remain a classic for all time. Many years ago, LEGO released a “UCS style” Tumbler with an exclusive Batman and Joker minifigure, and in 2021, they did a remastered version of that very set. It’s a nearly-identical version of the first one with some minor upgrades, as well as two new and exclusive minifigures. This one is a must-have for LEGO Batman fans!

3. 1989 Batwing
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQ7l9P-KHbo&ab_channel=MiniSuperHeroesToday
Amazon

After the success of 2019’s 1989 Batmobile, LEGO followed up with a matching 1989 Batwing. This came with three minifigs from the Michael Keaton film, as well as a hidden, built-in feature to hang the Batwing on your wall if you so choose!

2. Tumbler: Scarecrow Showdown
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80yqIjbPx7E&ab_channel=MiniSuperHeroesToday
Amazon

While large-scale sets are amazing for display value, I will always have a soft spot for minifigure-scale playlets. While this may be a vehicle and not a “playset” per say, I still think this set delivers on every level. Two great minifigs and a great build experience make this set worth every penny. 

1. 1989 Batmobile
https://youtu.be/x8KUAPmWz6s
Amazon

When this set was revealed, Batman fans around the world rejoiced. Not only was this an instant fan-favorite set, but it also introduced Michael Keaton’s Batman franchise into the world of LEGO. Containing three minifigures, a display stand, and tons of play features, it’s hard to imagine another set taking the #1 spot.

The Best Duke and UNC Merch To Cop Before The Final Four

It’s happening. The Final Four storybook matchup that we all prayed would happen for Coach K’s final hurrah. At the beginning of the tournament, a Duke vs UNC Final Four seemed like a pipe dream—something that was way too good to be true. Except the Basketball Gods looked out for us. And since they were kind enough to look out for us, Duke and UNC fans definitely have to take advantage of this opportunity to cop some new merch for what is sure to be one of the highest-rated college games of all time (this may even go down as one of the highest-rated games in the history of sports).

You know ONE37pm already has you covered, so we’ve gathered a list of Duke and UNC apparel that you can either pick up in-store or have shipped to you this week. Let’s see what we’re working with, shall we?

1. Duke Nike Fleece Hoodie
Duke University Stores

Okay, we’ll start with the local school stores. Since school is still in session, students can make their way to the university store to pick up just about anything Duke-related when it comes to merchandise. We’re assuming that at least a small percentage of Duke students will be at the game Saturday, and the rest will be at watch parties around the area, so obviously the University store is the best/quickest option for those individuals.

Of course, if you happen to be at or near Durham this week, in-person shopping may also be an option depending on Duke’s shopping policies. If you’re in the area and for some reason you can’t get to the campus store, there will more than likely be stores nearby that have Duke merchandise as well.

Rambling aside, this is a very nice hoodie. You can also get this exact same hoodie at Dick’s Sporting Goods and Nike.

BUY NOW, $70
https://shop.duke.edu/Duke-Retro-Fleece-Hood-by-Nike
2. Duke Jersey
Fanatics

Check this out. Fanatics.com has an excellent deal going on right now where you can get three-day expedited shipping for just $14.99. Not bad if you ask us. However, there’s a catch. The jerseys in particular are selling out quite fast. Hopefully, you can snag one in time for the game (or be willing to go up or down a size).

BUY NOW, $109.99
https://www.fanatics.com/college/duke-blue-devils/number-0-duke-blue-devils-nike-limited-basketball-jersey-white/o-16+t-56380043+p-25487139513+z-8-72872430?_ref=p-SRP:m-GRID:i-r1c0:po-3
3. Duke 2022 Final Four Hat
Fanatics

This is probably the most relevant Duke item that you can cop right now. What we have here is the official 2022 NCAA Final Four hat. Regardless of whether or not Duke wins this game, this matchup will be a part of sports history, and owning official merchandise is the right way to go. Might be a good investment too.

BUY NOW, $39.99
4. Duke T-Shirt
Nike

We hesitated to put this on here because there is almost zero chance that this will be here before Saturday. In fact, according to Nike, you may not get it until next Tuesday (April 8th) which is obviously after not only the Final Four but the National Championship as well. So if you are a Duke fan and planning on buying this shirt, you have to be okay with still owning it if, in fact, Duke does not win the title.

BUY NOW, $35
https://www.nike.com/t/jordanunc-mens-t-shirt-7MbzGJ/00038462X-DK1
5. North Carolina 2022 NCAA Final Four Hat
UNC Tarheels

Same deal as Duke. If you are a UNC student or near the Chapel Hill area, there’s a chance that you can skip the online hoopla altogether and pick up your new UNC merchandise either at the University Store, or at a nearby store such as Walmart, Target, or an athletic store, etc as those places tend to have team merchandise as well.

If you aren’t nearby or out of luck, you can always go to the Fanatics website which once again offers three-day shipping for $14.99, which means you get it before the game.

BUY NOW, $39.99
6. Jordan Brand 2022 Locker Room T-Shirt
UNC Tarheels

These are the official locker room shirt replicas that were worn during the celebration, and honestly, they’re pretty cool. Definitely feel the bracket design against the baby blue, that’s a clean look. Plus, you’re obviously talking about apparel that’s Jordan Brand, which is always a bonus.

BUY NOW, $34.99
https://shop.goheels.com/mens-jordan-brand-carolina-blue-north-carolina-tar-heels-2022-ncaa-mens-basketball-tournament-march-madness-final-four-regional-champions-locker-room-t-shirt/p-37859809444415+z-829-222577702?_ref=p-TLP:m-GRID:i-r0c0:po-0
7. Jordan UNC Jersey
Nike

If you are a die-hard UNC fan, then chances are you probably own something Number 23 related already, but in case you don’t, here ya go! The good thing about Jordan’s UNC Jersey is that it’s pretty universal in the sense that you’re not limited to only finding it online. You could go to your local mall and there might be a shop (Jimmy Jazz for example) that has it available. You never know.

BUY NOW, $120

8. Mitchell and Ness Jordan 83/84 Jersey
Fanatics

Normally we wouldn’t double do it, but we had to double do it. Look at this beautiful retro Michael Jordan jersey. Doesn’t it scream 1980s basketball, jerry curls, and extra super short basketball shorts? Worth every penny if you ask us.

Well, this is it, folks. Whether you go with our selections or not, we hope you are able to get some new merch for what we think will be the game of the ages. The Duke vs UNC matchup is set to go down this Saturday, April 2nd, at 8:49 pm EST.

Best Face Moisturizers For Men on Amazon

Many men still feel that they don’t need some form of a skincare routine, but a good face moisturizer can make a massive difference at a minimum. If you’re looking to get one but don’t know how to go about it, below we’ve got a list of considerations to make before you buy—along with a list of five great moisturizers for men.

How to pick the best face moisturizer
  • Consider skin type – Skincare is incredibly important, which of course means it’s also incredibly complicated. Getting a moisturizer isn’t as simple as picking the first one you see online or on the shelf. Your skin can either by oily, sensitive, dry or any combination of these, so you need to consider this. 
  • Consider ingredients – All moisturizers are not created equally. In fact, ingredients can greatly differ from product to product. For example, some might contain vitamin c, which helps with anti-aging. Oatmeal and aloe ease inflammation. Vitamin E fights skin damage and dullness. Despite this, not every product will include everything.
  • Consider fragrance – Moisturizers can either have a fragrance, be fragrance-free or unscented. Fragrances smell nice, but are also often synthetic and help mask toxins which cause the skin to react badly. Fragrance-free doesn’t mean that the moisturizer will smell, because often natural ingredients provide a nice smell. Unscented moisturizers may include a ‘natural smelling’ fragrance. This is a tricky one, so be sure to check before you buy.
  • Consider organic – Moisturizers made with organic ingredients are usually much healthier for the skin. Some moisturizers market themselves as being ‘natural’, but this is a slippery slope and doesn’t always mean what people interpret.
1. Jack Black Double-Duty Face Moisturizer
Top Pick
Amazon

This first men’s face moisturizer from Jack Black is a great option for those who want their skin to feel nourished and hydrated without feeling oily. It includes vitamin E which will have your skin’s appearance looking better and it also consists of vitamin A, blue algae extract, phospholipids and sea parsley. This double-duty face moisturizer also includes UVA/UVB protection which helps stop aging caused by the sun. It has an SPF of 20. In terms of the company, they never test their products on animals, which is always a bonus. Do note that if you have sensitive skin or incredibly dry skin, you’ll need something different.

Pros:

  • Hydrates skin
  • Great natural ingredients
  • UVA/UVB protection


Cons:

  • Not for sensitive or very dry skin

2. Brickell Men’s Daily Essential Face Moisturizer
Best Vegan
Amazon

This daily essential face moisturizer by Brickell is made with 100% natural ingredients but even more crucially, 83% organic ingredients. It consists of aloe vera, which supplies moisture and antioxidants to the skin tissue, jojoba oil which creates a kind of protective cushion on your skin to help prevent water loss and green tea, which helps with anti-aging. This company’s products are always vegan, never tested on animals and don’t contain sulfates, synthetic fragrances or gluten. Some have stated that there is a strange scent despite it being unscented.

Pros:

  • 83% organic ingredients
  • Vegan
  • Moisturizes well

Cons:

  • Can have a strange smell

https://amzn.to/3Gqfdm7
3. Viking Revolution Natural Face Moisturizer
Best For Wrinkles
Amazon

This face moisturizer is an especially great pick for men who have lines and wrinkles on their face. It will help diminish the look and nourish your skin so that it is as smooth as can be. It does this without any harsh chemicals that would have adverse effects. If you’re looking for something a little more like a cream, this might not be for you though because it has a particularly runny feel which some are not a fan of.

Pros:

  • Great for wrinkles
  • No harsh chemicals

Cons:

  • Runny
Buy now, $14.88
https://amzn.to/3HthpuC
4. Bulldog Men’s Facial Moisturizer
Best All-Round
Amazon

Bulldog is a very well respected and trusted brand in men’s health. This pack of moisturizers is actually interestingly made for use for your entire body, but it still works just as well on your face as most products out there. Many men start a skincare routine for their face and then neglect the rest of their body, so this is a good choice if that sounds like you. It’s designed for everyday use and the natural ingredients are paired with some carefully selected man-made products to increase performance. It can be a little greasy for some if used excessively, so keep that in mind.

Pros:

  • Can be used for whole body
  • Soothes skin

Cons:

  • Can be greasy
Buy now, $17.48
https://amzn.to/3gDnMjj
5. Bevel Face Moisturizer For Men
Also Consider
Amazon

Last but not least is this lotion from Bevel. It’s a lightweight hydrating gel that balances the skin’s natural oil and leaves your face with a shine-free finish. It’s infused with tea tree oil, apple extract and vitamin c and features no additives. This is a thicker option, so for some, it could leave the skin feeling stickier than they would like, but generally, the skin absorbs it pretty quickly.

Pros:

  • Shine-free skin
  • No additives
  • Improves dry and oily skin

Cons:

  • Can leave skin sticky

How To Choose The Perfect Beer Glasses For Your Bar At Home

Perhaps you’re wondering why on earth you’d need a specific glass for a beer. Shouldn’t anything be fine? The short answer is yes, you can definitely drink a beer out of a solo cup, bottle or can and be fine. But the best beer glasses have so many benefits that they’re well worth considering if a cold brew is something you frequent. Still confused? We’re here to help.

How to pick the best beer glasses for you
  • Consider what beers you drink – This is really the main ingredient in picking the right beer glass for you. For example, there’s a best glass for American lagers, pilsners, pale lagers and blonde ales. Steins and mugs are best suited for Irish dry stouts, Scottish ales and American ales. Consider what you drink the most and buy accordingly.
  • Consider the width of the rim – This is important because a wider rim means the beer will move out of the glass a lot faster. More narrow rims let the beer out slower. A wider rim also means it can get flat quicker because there’s more exposure to the air.
  • Consider design – Even outside of the general shape of a beer glass, there’s often more to consider like designs on the glassware, branding and other little intricacies that can make one beer glass stand out over the next. 
1. Modvera Beer Pint Glass
Top Pick
Amazon

A classic pint glass is actually a little bit of a contentious point amongst beer drinkers. Some feel that it’s the perfect glass for any kind of beer and others feel they should never be used. If you’re the former, then this set of 6 pints by Modvera is a great choice. Each glass weighs just 5.8 pounds and can hold 16 fluid ounces. The glasses are easily stackable and quite durable, so you don’t have to worry about them chipping overly easily. They’re also crystal clear and lead-free. Keep in mind that although they won’t chip too easily, they can be known to get scratched.

Pros:

  • Set of 6
  • Stackable
  • Lead-free

Cons:

  • Can scratch somewhat easily

https://amzn.to/3B0Psbe
2. JoyJolt Callen Beer Glasses
Best For Freezing
Amazon

Next up is this set of four beer glasses. They’re slightly wider than pilsners and are great for holding IPAs, crafts and pale ales. These glasses are thick, so they feel like a premium buy. They have a 2.75” wide grip and 1.75oz heft. They’re handy if you like your beers ice cold, because they can go in the freezer with no problem. They’ll fit just under a pint in comfortably, at about 15.5 fluid ounces. Keep in mind that if you want something extra durable, you might want to go with another option. While these shouldn’t break on you for no reason, if you’re not careful, then they can fairly easily.

Pros:

  • Thick glasses
  • Can be frozen

Cons:

  • Not especially durable
Buy now, $16.95
https://amzn.to/3or1Njy
3. DU VINO Beer Glasses
Best Head Retention
Amazon

These Teku beer glasses from DU VINO might look more like wine glasses to a casual drinker, but they’re actually crafted in a way that the beer-drinking experience is enhanced. The top of the glass is angled, so that you get the aroma of the beer while drinking. The thin stem reduces the rate at which the beer warms. The etched nucleation means that head retention here is great. They’re also safe to put in both the dishwasher and the freezer and just look like premium quality glasses. Do keep in mind that these are really thin, and so clumsiness will result in them breaking quite easily.

Pros:

  • Great head retention
  • Keeps beers cold
  • Pack of 4
  • Can smell the beer while drinking

Cons:

  • Very thin glasses
Buy now, $59.79
https://amzn.to/3ouAQLU
4. Dragon Glassware Beer Glasses
Best Design
Amazon

This set of 4 beer glasses from Dragon Glassware are designed with double-wall insulation which aims to keep beer colder for longer. Of course, the design of the glasses it what stands out. When full, the beer looks almost like it is floating and in the shape of an upside-down bottle. Even with the design, the glasses can hold up to 11 fluid ounces each. The glasses are not only crystal clear, but lead-free and able to be storied in the freezer. Do keep in mind that the glasses are a little thin, which means they’re more easily breakable than most.

Pros:

  • Double-wall insulation
  • Great design
  • Lead-free

Cons:

  • Thin

5. Libbey Assorted Beer Glasses
Also Consider
Amazon

Last but most certainly not least is this set of 6 assorted glasses from Libbey. If you’re an experienced beer drinker and enjoy a wide variety of brews, especially with friends, then this is a great option for you. The set includes a pilsner glass, a classic English pub glass, a Belgian ale glass, a porter/stout glass, a wheat beer glass and a craft pub glass, which will cover most bases for most people. The glasses come well packaged and are lead-free. If you’re hosting a meet up with some friends on the weekend and want to have a few beers then these are great, but you could go with something more on the premium side for a different occasion.

Pros:

  • Best variety
  • Well packaged
  • Lead-free

Cons:

  • For a more casual setting

The Best Power Strips For Homes and Offices on Amazon

Power strips are something that we all take for granted until we actually need to buy them. It all seems so simple until you need to get one yourself, and then you realize there’s a lot more to consider when purchasing one, whether it’s for your house or work. If you find yourself in that scenario, we hope to make things easier for you with our list of the best power strips for homes and offices.

How to pick the best power strip for you
  • Consider number of outlets – Trying to figure out how many sockets you think you’ll need based on the amount of appliances you want to power is a crucial part of buying a power strip. Even when you’ve counted up, perhaps buy with one or two in mind, so that it sets you right for the foreseeable future.
  • Consider length – Think about where you’ll need to plug your power strip in, what you’ll plug into it and where you want to be when using your appliances. Based on this, you’ll know how long you need it to be.
  • Consider surge protectors – A surge protector is essentially a specific kind of power strip that is designed to withstand a power surge and keep your electronics safe. If you want to go the extra mile, that’s a good option.
1. EPICKA Surge Protector
Top Pick
Amazon

This surge protector power strip by ETICKA is 1875W with 12 AC outlets, which will cover most people for a single room even if you have a lot of appliances that need powering. On top of the appliances, there are four USB-A ports and one USB-C port so that if all you need is a USB port, you don’t need an adaptor to take up another spot. The versatility is great too. On the strip there are non-slip pads if you want it on your desk and even keyhole slots if you want the power strip mounted. If you’re wondering how using all spots on this power strip would work, you have nothing to worry about because there is a built-in overload protector. In the event of an overload, the double-break safety switch trips off automatically. It’s worth noting that the build quality could feel a little better, but it shouldn’t be a problem unless you’re overly reckless with it.

Pros:

  • High number of outlets
  • USB ports
  • Surge protector
  • Overload protector

Cons:

  • Build quality could be better
Buy now, $24.99
https://amzn.to/3h2qDSO
2. KMC 6-Outlet Surge Protector
Best Matching
Amazon

This 2-pack of 6-outlet power strips are surge protectors and are made from ABS flame resistant material, which also makes them able to withstand high temperatures. They offer 900 joules, which will be a lot for most people, but if you want to use every outlet with power tools or other items which require a lot of power, you might want to go for a stronger option where you’re more protected. The cords are 4 feet long and very durable, so you won’t have to worry about wires getting exposed.

Pros:

  • Long, durable cords
  • ABS flame resistant material
  • Set of 2 for matching options

Cons:

  • Only protected up to 900 joules 
Buy now, $19.99
https://amzn.to/35dnn4j
3. GE 6-outlet Power Strip
Color Choice
Amazon

This power strip by GE is available in white and black, which is a nice choice for you to make depending on the décor of your home. Though the cord is only 2 feet, it is made from a durable PVC insulation and the jacket is thick and durable. If your power strip experiences overheating or overvoltage, the built-in circuit breaker will cut the power to avoid a fire. If you want to mount the power strips to your wall, there are keyholes which make that possible too. Do keep in mind that there is no LED, so if you want to know if the power strip is on from a difference with a glance, you won’t be able to. The strip also feels a little light.

Pros:

  • Pack of 2
  • Different colors
  • Strong cord
  • Keyholes for mounting

Cons:

  • Build quality could be better
  • No LED
Buy now, $10.99
https://amzn.to/3v1cUUE
4. HANYCONY Surge Protector
Best Design
Amazon

If you have a lot of big plugs that covers outlets and you’d like a power strip that makes it easier for you, this one by HANYCONY is a great choice. It’s not the traditional shape and the fact that there outlets on three sides mean that plugs won’t get in the way of each other. There are 8 outlets and 4 USB charging ports. It’s also a surge protector with overload protection and an LED to show you that it’s working. The great design also means that it takes up less space, so even if you’re mounting this to a wall (which is possible with the keyholes), it’ll look great. Be wary that the spacing on the USB ports is a little tight.

Pros:

  • Great design saves space
  • Good for bulky adaptors
  • Surge protector
  • Can be wall mounted

Cons:

  • USB ports are close together
Buy now, $19.99
https://amzn.to/36ifw68
5. Mifaso Power Strip With USB
Also Consider
Amazon

Last but not least is this power strip by Mifaso, which is made to be especially compact so you can potentially travel with it. Its size means it’s also great for you to have on your desk at the office or on your nightstand in your bedroom. It has an anti-slip pad to make that easier. Despite its size, it boasts three outlets and three USB ports which will provide 1625W and it still has a cord length of 5 feet, which should be suitable for most people, especially in a smaller space. Keep in mind that something you’re giving up on the size is the space between outlets, so using big adaptors is very tricky.

Pros:

  • Compact design
  • Anti-slip pads
  • USB ports

Cons:

  • Not good for big adaptors

A Guide to Men’s Spring Style Essentials

Spring is a transitional, full of uncertainty and weary optimism after the misery of a harsh winter. Taking that into consideration, it makes sense for your wardrobe to reflect such a period with versatile clothing that will keep you warm when it needs to, but workable on a nicer day. It’s also a great time to do some cleaning and get rid of excess in your wardrobe to get back to the basics, so without further ado here are 25 of our favorite essentials for this season.

The Basics of Men’s Spring Style

Men’s fashion is in a great place right now, with two dominant styles at the forefront. On one hand, we have the ever practical gorpcore look, chock full of cargos and Gore-Tex shells, and on the other we have the new wave blend of street and prep that has gripped the pockets of many. Both are great and immensely versatile, so we made sure to pick a healthy combination of the two for you to choose from.

1. The Tank Top
Amazon

The steady return of the tank top into the world of fashion has been earmarked by luxury brands’ latest shows, of which about half included them in some capacity. Wife beaters, or as we like to call them, wife pleasers, are an essential for anyone as they can be used as an underlayer to keep from dirtying a nice shirt, or worn with an unbuttoned shirt to show off those chest hairs you’ve been working to grow.

Reebok by Pyer Moss Unveils Collection 4

Pyer Moss has announced the fourth and final installment of their partnership with Reebok, set to arrive later this month. Pyer Moss has worked with the sportswear giant since 2017, serving up collaborative collections as well as era-defining sneaker projects such as the experiment series and sculpt model.

Reebok by Pyer Moss

Inspired by spiritual statues and artifacts, the collection features a range of men’s, women’s, and unisex apparel as well as accessories. On top of the usual hoodies and leggings seen in sportswear collaborations, the collection features mock neck dresses, full length coats, and cropped track jackets. Many of the garments are covered in a stunning overall print that recalls imagery of marbling or paint in water, in varying shades of red and blue.

The collection calls into question traditional ideas of a higher power, and encourages the spirituality of the wearer and their ability to relate to those within their own communities.

Reebok by Pyer Moss

Additionally, the imagery hints at an upcoming trainer silhouette in the future. Reebok by Pyer Moss Collection 4 will be available this Saturday, March 26 at Pyer Moss’ and Reebok’s online stores, as well as other select retailers.

The collection comes just one month after it was announced that Kirby Jean-Raymond would be ending his tenure as Global Creative Director for Reebok after joining in September of 2020. The designer has had a longstanding relationship with the brand, begging the question as to why he is leaving.

Jean-Raymond’s departure coincides with major changes at Reebok, which was sold to Authentic Brands Group for 2.1 billion euros by former owner Adidas last August. Sales reportedly dropped by 16 per cent in 2020, no doubt leading to many of the changes currently seen at the company. ABG has plans to lean Reebok into the luxury market even further, so we will see what the future holds.
