It's widely known that flying commercial is far more enjoyable with a little lubrication, but the simple options afforded on the in-flight menu — cran and vodka, Jack and Coke, etc. — leave a lot to be desired. Step up your mile-high drinking game with the Carry On Cocktail Kit. This simple tin includes everything you need to fix yourself a pair of Old Fashioned cocktails (minus the whiskey), including a recipe card, a combination spoon/muddler, bitters, cane sugar, and a linen coaster that won't stick to the bottom of your cup like those cheap paper squares. Be prepared to be the envy of everyone seated in the general vicinity. ps. This fits perfect in our Laptopbags ;)

The work of Luciano Kruk Arquitectos, located in Valeria del Mar, Buenos Aires Province, Argentina, this incredible single-storey house on the Atlantic coast finds itself set amongst tall trees in a forest clearing. A plot measuring 32 by 23 meters, the family home comprised of three bedrooms, placed far apart across the elongated build around a central meeting space, sticks to a simple, unfinished aesthetic. Exposed concrete across the ceiling, walls and floors giving a stark, gallery feel while the long expanse of sliding glass windows allows uninterrupted views of the outside world.

The chill of winter is near, and there's nothing like a pour of whiskey on a winter night to ward off the bitter cold. A Midwinter Nights Dram from the High West Distillery is a limited edition release of their Rendezvous Rye finished in port and French oak barrels. Named with Shakespeare in mind, this whiskey is sure to warm up a cold winter night with its vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, and spice flavors. Talking about vanilla and caramel, these three bottles would fit perfectly in our restocked Trash Messenger Canvas.

Last year we had a beautiful collaboration Travel Towel with Monocle. Now it's time for an other favorite brand from the Travelteq team, Mackintosh.

The Scottish company's iconic raincoats have protected generations of wearers from the weather and it's a closet essential that will continue to be in style for generations to come.

Their special edition for Monocle is made from Loro Piana storm-system premium wool and is constructed in their bestselling Dunkeld style. It also features a quilted nylon vest that can be worn with or without the jacket.
