This week in tabs: Here's what's new in community and culture

Baggu's highly anticipated collaboration with NYC retailer and brand, Sandy Liang, launched and sold out just a few minutes into its early access sale on Tuesday. The frenzy left a quarter of our team (and probably thousands of others) wondering what we had missed when we logged on to Baggu's site ahead of the official drop time to find nothing left. Baggu posted on Instagram later in the day addressing the situation and said a restock will happen later this year, but still, proof of our disappointment below.

Birkenstock announces plans for September IPO with $8 billion valuation.

L.L. Bean's business is booming with further expansion of wholesale.
