Explore a collection that provides both fresh inspiration and renewed optimism
This spring, our collective experience shifted in ways that none of us could have ever expected. But one thing we can all rely on is the changing of the seasons... and new adventures ahead. We’re looking forward, as we find our way in a new world. To help, we’ve curated a collection of incredible products, gathered from preferred partners across the country.
Inside the new Extraordinary Man #editorsbox, you’ll find two versatile accessories for any safely distanced appearance this season. (After all, style doesn’t have to suffer even if a Zoom call is the social highlight of your day.) There are grooming products that will keep your skin in shape despite the hot weather and copious handwashing; the perfect tool to keep you hydrated on the patio or in the backyard; and even a new, natural find that promises to have you smelling fresh, while remaining free of harmful chemicals, scents or dyes.
Here's a look inside our summer 2020 #editorsbox. Subscribe now for this box—until August 31st or before it sells out. We have more to share in the year ahead!
1. Extraordinary Man – Commuter Insulated Bottle, $42
This durable, stainless steel container will make hydration easy this season. Designed exclusively for the Extraordinary Man subscription box, it’s both sophisticated and understated, with a sleek matte finish. It’s BPA-free and keeps beverages hot for up to 12 hours and cold for up to an entire day! Hand wash only.
2. Gentlemen of the North – Summer Pocket Square, $20
Toronto’s Gentlemen of the North have provided a few highlights in previous collections—and this pocket square from their Soft Landing line-up certainly falls in line. The classic, simple design means it’s incredibly versatile, while the 100 percent cotton material is soft to the touch. Add it to any sportscoat this season for instant style without fuss.
3. Scentuals – Coconut Cocoa Butter Hand Repair Cream, $11.50
If you’re like us, your hands were scrubbed clean this spring... over and over again. Like last season’s scent-free hand repair option from Vancouver favourite Scentuals, this luxurious lotion both repairs and restores, thanks to aloe, almond oil and more. A light coconut scent will bring back memories of sunny, scenic escapes, while providing instant hydration.
4. I LUV IT – Naturally Noble Deodorant, $16.50
A clean pine scent is the first thing you’ll notice, but the best part of this offering from Vancouver’s I Luv It is the fact that it works! Unlike other naturally derived products, Naturally Noble is impressively effective and long- lasting. Coconut oil, beeswax and arrowroot powder are just three of the tools used to combat summer’s... umm, odours. And you can forget aluminum and chemicals. This formula is 100 percent natural.
5. Wolf Clothing Co. – Seville Socks, $14
A Wolf man is always on the hunt for more... and we can’t get enough of the sophisticated styles of Vancouver’s Wolf Clothing Co. A 176-needle thread count ensures these socks are not too thick and not too thin—but it’s the bright orange colour of the Seville design that we like for the season—a statement piece to complement just about any summer look.
6. Scentuals – Invigorate Facial Toner, $29
Our friends at Scentuals also recommended a facial mist that hydrates and repairs skin. Whether you’ve been indoors all spring and your mug could use a bit of help, or you plan on getting out in the sun, this soothing blend will balance pH levels, without stripping the skin of its natural moisture. Simply cleanse and spray on this 100 percent natural, vegan-friendly and cruelty-free grooming aid.
7. Brockmann's Chocolates – Crunchetti, $6
After the spring we've all experienced, we could use a moment of escape–especially one that tastes this good! Inspired by European heritage and family recipes, the team of internationally trained chocolatiers at Brockmann’s Chocolates have been creating confections in British Columbia for more than 40 years. Their white chocolate Crunchetti is terrific, and—complete with almonds and rice-crisp clusters—makes the perfect snack to share with guests or devour on your own.
