The Eliminator – Five from Huckberry
Here’s how this works: Each day we’ll eliminate one item until only one is left standing at the end of the week. Vote for the item you’d LEAST like to own in the poll at the bottom of the page. The item with the most votes gets ejected at the end of the day. The item that remains at the end of this battle royal will be won by one of you, via an enter to win post firing off on Friday.
About Huckberry: It’s not easy to stand out in the world of flash sale websites, but Huckberry does it. With an emphasis on the outdoors and active lifestyle gear, they nail the upscale-rugged thing. Also, their sales are often filled with made in the USA goods. All of these items are currently available, or have been available through Huckberry at some point. May the best item win!
Filson Tin Cloth Original Briefcase in Tan – $325.00
“Might as well have the best”… sure thing. But this is the updated, tin-cloth, water resistant version of the Filson Original Brief. So, if the original is “the best” than the tin-cloth is the best…est? 16″ wide and very much made in the USA.
Two Breyburn Shirts: Solid White – $85 & Light Blue – $85
The two most important colors for dress shirts to own. Labeled a “brand for the 21st century“, Breyburn is web based, transparent, and looking to provide the highest quality at an attainable for most cost. Their shirts are made in Portugal from Italian fabrics, are cut in a slim fit, and feature Mother of Pearl buttons. Full spread/almost cutaway collar. See their fit chart here.
Joshu+Vela Saddle Wax Duffel – $190.00
Made in San Francisco from durable waxed canvas, leather handles that have been tanned here in the USA, sturdy cotton webbing, solid copper rivets, and a big ol’ #10 brass zipper. This brand is headed up by a guy who has experience working for Levi’s and The North Face, and with Joshu+Vela, he’s now committed to cranking out incredibly handsome goods using the best materials possible. Even the canvas on this bag comes from an organic co-op in Texas. Dimensions are 21″ long, 8″ tall, and 10.25″ wide
Tsovet SVT-DW44 – $400.00
A dive watch that can handle 200m of water… and just about anything thrown at it on dry land. 4mm case. No nonsense dial. Threaded screw-down crown, rubber strap, and matte case. 44mm in diameter and 22mm lugs. Swiss Rhonda Quartz movement with a lifetime warranty for the battery and a 5-year warranty on the rest. Swiss made. The kind of watch you’d want on your wrist when the Zombie apocalypse hits.
Broken Homme Davis Boot – $265.00
Pretty much encompasses just the kind of thing Huckberry specializes in carrying. Extremely well made, great looking, made-in-the-USA, and plenty of styles to pick from too. New to the scene but with a heritage feel, Broken Homme boots are made in Los Angeles and designed to last. Full grain leather uppers with a vibram sole. These guys have a bright future.
Here comes the tough part. Pick the item that you’d LEAST like to win and vote below to have it eliminated. One item gets cut every day. The item that’s left at the end of the week will be up for grabs and you’ll be able to enter to win on Friday. Make your case for what needs to stay in the comments, but let’s keep any mudslinging to a minimum. These are all terrific items, and many thanks to Huckberry and the brands for being on board with The Eliminator. Voting closes at 11:59pm ET.
