Stab Recommends: Our Staff’s Quarantine Essentials
The saga continues.
Welcome to Stab Recommends.
This week’s edition features the wares of some of the Stab staff’s favourite independent brands, the theme: making quarantine that little bit more bearable.
Slowtide Turkish Towel and Beach blanket
Whether you’re lucky enough to live by the ocean and still enjoy a daily dip, or just like rugging up post shower, life’s too short to use gross towels. With hugging off the agenda for the foreseeable, Slowtide towels and blankets are the next best thing.
Old Pal towel, hat, lighter, wax (weed)
Whilst in Australia we’re facing lockdown with minimal bush weed supplies thanks to the fires and only shitty basement hydro to replace it, in the States not only can you order high quality weed on the internet, but you can grab tasteful apparel while you’re at it. God bless America, sure got that right.
Cory Wilson Corkcicle Canteen
If you haven’t got a reusable water bottle by no then you’re almost certainly a terrible person, but we’re not here to cast judgement. If you’ve recently misplaced your trusty water-carrier, then we suggest you go Corkcicle, the Corey Wilson collab, if we’re being exact.
Kelsen Shampoo Body Wash, Conditioner and Pomade collection bundle
Getting complimented on your scent is one of life’s unappreciated pleasures. Whilst you’re unlikely to get complimented by anyone outside your immediate circle any time soon we suggest switching to Mikey Feb and Jack Free’s new venture, Kelsen.
Just Water – Organic Tangerine
The trick to not turning into a hopeless pisswreck thoughtful isolation is to always have something cold in the fridge other than beer. Plain water’s not going to cut it, but a tinge of tangerine hits the spot, even if it’s only prolonging the inevitable.
