Cool stuff for geek dads

Upgrade your dad’s wallet to a Duct Tape BiFold Wallet and he’ll get compliments every time he pays for something. What cool is that even though these are made with real duct tape, it has a special adhesive that won’t lift, shift, or get sticky.

Yeah, yeah, we know that ties for Father’s Day can be cliche, but if you check out our ties you’ll see they are far from ordinary. If your dad’s a scientist, he’ll love our Microscope Ties. And if he’s a psychologist / psychiatrist, our Neuron Tie, featuring a screenprinted, textbook-like neuron would be perfect. f you’ve got a space nerd for a dad, the retro-blueprinty IApollo Cockpit Tie would stylishly project his appreciation (and envy) of astronauts (unless he is one, then, awesome!).

Or, you could get your dad a stylish new laptop bag that looks like a Vintage B12 Pilot’s Messenger Bag, with subtle leather accents. If your dad has more minimalist tendancies, the Classic Messenger Bag that’s available in 3 colors will be sure to make him happy.

If you have a gadget-obsessed dad, he’ll love opening the Lightmare LED Watch with a stainless

steel band on Father’s Day. The large dot represents the hour hand on a traditional analog watch, and the small dot at the outer edge represents every five minutes. The four dots in the center represent the minutes between the five minute marks.

 

Boots! Gear Bags! Woot.

We’ve added a bunch of boots to the site, and these GI Jungle Boots with a Ripple Sole would make a great summer boot since the upper is made of breathable fabric (normal combat boots are all-leather).

We’ve also added some neat gear bags that have multiple possibilities for usefulness, especially if you’re an electronic musician or DJ. These larger gear / duffle bags–Tactical Gear Bags–with both handles and backpack straps give the bags versatility and are available in two different sizes, the smaller version of which meets US airline carryon requirements.

DJ & gear bags and new messenger bags



We’ve added a bunch of new bags! The Musette DJ Bag is modeled after WWII rucksacks and can fit records, with two strap options that let you carry it over your shoulder or as a backpack. The Musette Live PA bag is the same as the DJ version but slightly larger. Both of these are made by a company that makes military-spec bags and clothing, which is pretty cool. These funky, edgy-retro-ish Map Case Messenger Bags have a kind of dystopian techno future quality about them, and are still pretty functional and eye-catching for everyday use. If that’s not your style, we have the Classic Messenger Bag (large photo above) available in black or olive drab with a more minimalist look with a slight military edge.

Finally, if you’re pocket-obsessed, you will love the M-51 Engineer’s Field Bag, modeled off another military bag, featuring a plethora of pockets, slots, and even a water resistant clear document slot. We’ve also found them to be a good size to tote around an iPad or netbook with extra room to spare.
