Jeans Hanger

You’re bound to always own, at a minimum, a few pairs of jeans. Virtually everyone does. And yet the Jeans Hanger is the only low-profile hanger designed to nicely hold your jeans without the use of clips. Made of one solid piece of beech wood that’s fitted with a metal hanger that securely screws in. Fit it through your jeans’ belt loops on either end and then slide the middle belt loop into the hook to hang them nice and straight, perfect for wrinkle-free hang drying or just storing your pants away in a closet (they’re barely wider than standard top hangers).

Xeric Soloscope

They’ve been bringing you news on the most interesting timepieces by way of Watchismo, and even designed a watch or two in the last couple of years. The Xeric Soloscope is their latest. It’s another affordable automatic mechanical timepiece like their Halograph but with looks unique enough to set it apart from the thousands of other options in the price range. A single hand circles the hours and points to the minutes with its tip, making its way around the face once every 24 hours. The other half of its face displays its twin balance wheels, and the way they’re laid out — the watch on the right side — works perfectly to peek out from underneath your shirt’s cuff. A 36 hour power reserve, a sapphire-coated K1 crystal lens, and a Horween leather strap round out the timepiece. And if you’re looking for something a bit more affordable, a Quartz-powered Soloscope costs a fair bit less.

OLIVERS Convoy Tee

Advances in technology are trickling down into the clothing you rock everyday, not just the phone in your pocket or that smartwatch on your wrist. OLIVERS Apparel is harnessing such advances with its simple, smartly designed Convoy Tee, made out of 100 percent merino wool and built to wick sweat while fitting slim and comfortably. It’s built in the same vein as the brand’s 5-Pocket Pant or Base Henley — that is, well-crafted and versatile. Available in two neutral colors, the Convoy Tee would work for nearly any situation you can think of, from wearing under a slim blazer for a laidback-yet-cool day at the office, to traveling crosscountry. That includes spring and summer hikes and daily workouts, too. For the price, getting one tee that can do it all isn’t a bad deal.

Grab one at OLIVERS Apparel – $68

Buck Mason Midnight Long Sleeve Tee

The days of wearing a ratty tee on the weekends (or during the week, for that matter) should be long gone. Luckily, that’s all the easier to accomplish thanks to Buck Mason’s heritage-inspired approach to crafting perfect tees. They’re a significant style upgrade whether rocked under a lightweight wool blazer in winter or with a chunky shawl cardigan in the fall. Add in the fact that the Midnight Long Sleeve Pocket Tee is made from breathable slub cotton, and you’ve got your new favorite tee for spring layering, too. The midnight color and slim fit are both welcome styling touches that set it apart from plenty of other tees on the market as well as your drawer right now. At $45, it might be a bit more than you might be used to paying for a T-shirt — but it’s got the quality and styling potential to justify the price.

Bridge & Burn Knoll Navy Jacket

Military and workwear are a constant source of inspiration for brands crafting collections. Bridge & Burn takes that rugged design inspiration and channels it into an aesthetic of its own, resulting in the Knoll Navy Canvas Jacket, a piece influenced by rough-and-tumble outerwear of years past. The Knoll changes up a few key styling details — namely the riveted hand pockets — and adds a zippered chest pocket for your phone (certainly not something found on last century’s workwear jackets). The red and navy cotton gingham inner lining complements the dark navy color and midweight cotton canvas on the exterior, combining to make this a rugged, stylish addition to your wardrobe this season and for years to come.

Stealth Socks

Increasingly, guys have started minding style, making details increasingly important. That includes socks, and dovetails with the intertwining worlds of fashion and technology. Maison Impeccable’s Stealth Socks combine style, sustainability and functionality by using mesh ventilation zones that wick moisture two times faster than merino wool socks and four times faster than other cotton/poly blend pairs. Better yet, a polymeric silver matrix adds antimicrobial odor-fighting abilities to the fabric that stay there through well over a hundred washings. The ankle and hexagonal cushioning zones offers tons of comfort all day long, along with a non-slip calf cuff. Plus, you’ve got your pick of nine unique patterns, including, from left to right, Nocturne, Royale, and Rugger.

Panerai Luminor 1950 Carbotech

A first for any timepiece, the Panerai Luminor 1950 Carbotech uses its namesake material — Carbotech — as a case material instead of metal. Thin carbon fibre sheets are compressed together along with a polymer binding agent to attain higher mechanical strengths than ceramic or titanium, and this at a lower weight than either, though it is capped on the back with a hard black coated titanium screw cap. It’s powered by Panerai’s P.9000 calibre automatic movement with 3 day power reserve, features a 300 bar (300 meter) water resistance, and boasts a rotating bezel that turns anticlockwise for calculating immersion time while diving, particularly useful in this day and age as a backup should your dive computer fail.

Taft Jack Boot

Perfectly suited to either casual or formal wear depending on how you dress it, Taft’s Jack Boot combines an Italian full-grain calf skin toe cap and counter with a natural raw wool upper for a distinguished look you won’t find on shoes in your local department store. A calfskin inner lining adds structure to the upper and is fitted with metal-reinforced upper eyelets to support the cotton laces. They’re rounded out by a leather sole featuring rubber inserts for comfort, grip, and durability, making this a pair of boots you won’t want to take off.

Alice Made This Cufflinks

Inspired by architecture and initially driven by a personal need for interesting and refined men’s accessories, Alice Made This launched a few years back with Cufflinks as their bread and butter. Each pair is made in British factories using manufacturing techniques normally reserved for aerospace and military industries. Cufflinks come in a variety of designs either industrial and classic, with some of the processes used in their production including turning from solid billet metal, electroplating finishes, marine rope parts woven by rope makers, ceramic models cut with diamond-impregnated blades, and stamping by a military armory. They come in a large variety of designs and metals including (shown from left to right) the polished Alexander, the knurled Oliver, and the ornate George.
