Shinola, the rare Detroit watchmaker, is founded upon the principle of quality American-made goods. While we’re sure to be hearing more from them on the watchmaking tip — and they have indeed just released nine new timepieces — their new line of individually crafted, high-quality leather-bound sporting goods are especially noteworthy. Get your game on via baseball, basketball or football (American, that is), each item handcrafted in premium leather and available in an array of colors. Other noteworthy goods in the collection include: the Runwell backpack (a limited-edition, individually numbered leather knapsack available on pre-order for $950); two sizes of the Hudson dog leash that are of the brass-buckled, mariner-rope variety; and the Kletterworks collection of traditional, functional carryalls. Prices start at $40 for baseballs and move on up to the aforementioned backpack. Shop here. And check out their bike shop while you’re around.
