The Odd Sock
Based in Malvern, The Odd Sock designs both understated and statement socks, which are hardwearing and designed to be mixed and matched. You’ll find everything from polka dot to pinstripes in their online store, as well as the epic Odd Box, which includes 5 pairs of socks and is part of our epic giveaway. Great for restocking your own sock drawer, or pick up a few for those Christmas gifts you’re bound to forget about, and the ultimate solution to never having socks that match.
At least half of The Urban List team already own Orbit Key key chains, which is a testament to just how freaking good they are at looking after the things you dread losing most. Having won design awards all over the world, these babies hold your keys together in leather or rubber, and even come with bottle opener and USB keys to make them extra handy.

Anytime IPA from Temple Brewing Co
East Brunswick, and all worthy bottle shops
The guys at Temple Brewing Co make some of the best beer in Melbourne, and the jewel in their crown is the Anytime IPA, which took home the award for the best pale ale in the WORLD at the last International Beer Awards. As well as making incredible brews, they’re also ace people, as you’ll see in this video we made when we last hung out with the Temple Brewing Co team.
