Made from the same water-resistant polyurethane/polyester material as their signature raincoats, the Rains Backpack is the smart way to transport your stuff when everything is covered in snow or there's a downpour outside. Slender and minimal in design, the flap that covers the main compartment snaps into place with magnets, with a hook closure offering added security. Inside, there's a zippered pocket and a back pouch for laptops, while a separate zippered pocket on the back remains hidden, providing discreet and more secure storage for your phone, wallet, or other important items.
VAGUE GMT WATCH
Traveling from one time zone to another in a matter of hours wasn't always the norm. When it became common in the 1950s, the GMT watch was introduced to allow pilots and travelers to tell time in two different time zones simultaneously. Vague Watch Co.'s GMT is an homage to the timepieces that blazed the trail, most notably the legendary brown-and-gold "Root Beer" reference by a certain Swiss watch maker. And it'll give you the same warm hues without emptying your pockets. Powered by a Swiss quartz movement, it sports a dial with date function and applied luminous indices and hands, along with a 24-hour hand and classic two-tone rotating bezel that gives you the second time zone tracking. A domed crystal adds to the vintage look, while the 40mm stainless steel case with screw down crown is ready for your next swim with a 100-meter depth rating. Lightweight and comfortable for all-day wear, you can alternate between the leather or nylon Nato straps. Comes with a military-inspired case.
COAL X OTTER WAX THOMSON SE CAP
Keep a cool, dry head outdoors whether working or playing with the Coal x Otter Wax Thomson SE Cap ($40). This cap comes in a seven-panel silhouette with a leather fast-back adjuster, and comes in two outdoorsy colors, either dark olive or golden brown. As part of their partnership with Otter Wax, it includes a bar of heavy-duty fabric wax for waterproofing, helping this cap shed water in nasty conditions. Regardless of where you wear it — on the job or on a weekend trip — you'll stay comfortable and stylish.
XOO PHONE-CHARGING BELT
Carrying a battery pack isn't unusual. But normally it takes up room in either your pocket or your bag, whether it stands on its own or attaches to the back of your phone. The Xoo Phone-Charging Belt keeps your pockets and bags clear by placing the power on your waist. Available in polished zinc or Casely-Hayford imagined black, it packs a next-gen 2100 mAh Lithium Ceramic Polymer battery into the buckle, which is paired with your choice of black or brown leather straps.
WINNIFRED BEACH SPORT UTILITY BATHROBE
Wait a second... sport utility bathrobe? Yup, that's what you call the Winnifred Beach Sport Utility Bathrobe ($300). Combining the comfort of a traditional bathrobe with the utility of a field jacket, this SUB features plush cotton-terry lining, a cotton twill exterior, two large side cargo pockets — perfect for one iPad (or two if you're ambitious) — two chest pockets, two utility pockets, and epaulettes for that extra bit of military flair. Finally, you'll have an actual excuse for hanging out in a robe all day.
RED WING HERITAGE MASTER CARE KIT
Most high-quality boots are made to last years, if not decades. But you have to take proper care of them. The Red Wing Heritage Master Care Kit includes everything you need to do so. The included waxed canvas mason bag sports copper leather details, and has a (filled) slot for every single care product Red Wing makes. The package also comes with a leather working mat, two pairs of boot bags, some finishing cloths, two pairs of socks, and an embossed boot horn that will help keep those heels in great shape.
TATEOSSIAN COMPASS CUFFLINKS
Odds aren't likely you need a compass while donning formalwear, but these Tateossian Compass Cufflinks make quite the statement nonetheless. Created to celebrate the company's 25th anniversary, they're made from gunmetal-tone brass, each with its own functioning, black dial compass inside.The engraved t-bar fastenings have topaz stones inlaid in their centers, and each pair comes in its own handsome presentation box.
A good umbrella should keep you dry during a downpour, but the practical accessory hasn't seen much improvement since its inception. The designers of Kazbrella patiently developed their product, focusing on some of the common problems umbrellas have, while maintaining the shape and feel you're already used to. The Kazbrella is drip free — opening upwards instead of down, keeping your floors dry after it's neatly closed. That same design allows you to close it quickly and neatly when you're walking inside or hopping in the car. And since it's double spoked, it will stand up to strong winds, but even if it does blow inside out, getting it back to it's more helpful shape is as easy as a push of a button.
BATHER SURF TRUNKS
Designed and made in Toronto, Bather Board Shorts are meant to transition from water to land with style. They're made from 100% nylon for the fastest drying times possible, and double lined for comfort. Finished with a velcro fly, a vented back pocket with contrasting snap enclosure, and contrasting pull strings, they're just as appropriate for a beachside cafe as they are for the ocean.
AMERICAN SHINE BOX
Taking care of your dress shoes can be a chore, but it's also the only way to ensure they last. The American Shine Box makes it a little easier. Crafted from genuine hardwoods, the boxes offer internal storage for your waxes, brushes, and cloths, while the top has a wooden footrest and two metal polish bars that make the process as easy as threading a cloth and pulling it back and forth.
MALLE BRUNO WEEKENDER BAG
Carefully crafted in London, the Bruno Weekender Bag mixes versatility with rugged durability. Inspired by equal parts doctor's bag and tool bag, it's made from waterproof waxed canvas and rich bridle leather, and has eight interior pockets, including a removable laptop sleeve. Two slip pockets carry small items on the exterior, and two handy side straps can hold an umbrella, jacket, or newspaper. Each aluminum-framed bag also comes equipped with Malle moto straps to secure your bag to the subframe of that Triumph you've had your eye on, meaning it's as comfortable draped over the back of your bike as it is over your shoulder.
TUMI TRAVERSO EYEWEAR
As the sun threatens to break through the grayness of winter, it's time to start hunting for that most summery of accessories: sunglasses. Tumi Traverso Eyewear ($235-$245) fits the bill, with three distinct models — the sporty Brooklyn, in-between Severn, and Wayfarer-like Coronado — built with premium materials, sporting Tumi ZR3 Zeiss CR-39 Polarized lenses, and coming complete with a ballistic nylon case to make certain they last for more than just this season.
MUJJO WALLET CASE
The beginnings of any everyday carry start with a wallet and your phone, so the Mujjo Wallet iPhone Case frees up your pocket space by combining the two. It's full-grain leather shell wraps around the buttons and the edges of the screen, rising above the glass for added protection against cracks from drops. Vegetable tanned and finished with aniline oil, the exterior develops a unique patina with every use. The exterior pocket can hold up to three cards while still maintaining a profile that can fit into the slimmest of pockets. Available in black or tan for the iPhone 7, 8, and X / XS, XR, and XS Max.
KLIPSCH HERITAGE HP-3 HEADPHONES
Using a highly-efficient design, the Klipsch Heritage HP-3 Headphones offer audiophile sound untethered from dedicated amps. At their heart are free-edge 52mm bio-dynamic drivers made from a secret mix of bio-cellulose and inorganic fiber that are incredibly balanced and controlled. They're seated in solid wood ear cups that are triple-vented to reduce pressure in your ears and deliver consistent, natural sound. Matching the quality of the audio, the rest of the design is hand-assembled using visible copper nuts and bolts, with a hand-stitched cowhide headband and magnetic removable sheepskin ear cushions. They arrive in a handsome wooden case, along with a pair of smartphone-compatible 3.5mm cables, a 1/4" adapter, and a solid steel headphone stand.
VUARNET THE DUDE SUNGLASSES
Immortalized on screen by Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski, Vuarnet's The Dude sunglasses will add some laid back vibes to your summer wardrobe. Dubbed model 03, the silhouette was originally launched in 1962 and was inspired by the oversized aviators of US Air Force pilots. The frames are made from a tough shape memory nylon for comfort and have integrated monobloc hinges as well as a removable bridge insert, while the grey polar lenses offer maximum protection against glare whether it's coming from the sun or your lighter. Made in France.
Inspired by Apple's ever-present aluminum power buttons, the iCufflinks ($130) are ready to add some Cupertino-style flair to your formal attire. These "open source" cufflinks are machined from 6 series aluminum, and thanks to a battery that screws inside the housing — along with a tiny circuit board and LED — they pulsate gently, subtly letting those around you know that not only do you mean business, but you might also be a robot. [Thanks, KJ & Butschp]
ELLSWORTH & CLYDE MAGNETIC TIE BAR
Some classic menswear items rarely receive an update — the oxford shoe, neckties, sport coats — and most don't need one. But the Ellsworth & Clyde Magnetic Tie Bar ($50-$70) proves that sometimes a little innovation in a time-honored staple is sorely needed. Doing away with the clumsy mechanical hinge, these tie bars use powerful magnets to hold your neckwear in place no matter how much you move or how hard the wind blows. Handmade from carefully-selected hardwoods, stained, and finished with durable leather instead of a hinge (and with two lengths on either side to suit any tie), these tie bars are as inventive as they are handsome.
SUUNTO 9 MULTISPORT GPS WATCH
Some athletes need battery life that's measured in days, not hours. The Suunto 9 was built with them in mind. It has three battery modes that offer from 25 hours to five days of battery life, and intelligent software to help you switch in between them. It pulls off this trick with a proprietary FusedTrack algorithm that combines motion and GPS data to accurately track your movements while reducing GPS power. It also has over 80 sport modes, a built-in heart rate monitor, a barometer, and a rugged case waterproof to 100 meters.
J.A. CHRISTENSEN MAKER TIES
As you might have guessed, ties weren't always churned out by huge manufacturing equipment — they were made on a single needle sewing machine, by a single operator. Return to this time with J.A. Christensen Maker Ties ($90). Created with these classics in mind, these ties are cut across the fabric's width to give them a unique look, and feature square backs, vintage denim construction, a length of 55 inches, and width of three inches — not too short, not too skinny, but just right for pairing with a modern suit and shirt.
AUTODROMO FORD GT OWNER’S EDITION CHRONOGRAPH WATCH
Available exclusively to owners of the Ford GT supercar, this chronograph was made by Autodromo who worked closely with Ford to create the perfect timepiece companion for GT owners. The watch is powered by a La Joux-Perret flyback chronograph movement housed within a 43mm case while the honeycomb dial with a sapphire overlay and hands create a look similar to the digital displays within the GT. Each timepiece is customized using a 3-D configuration online where owners can choose a color to match the exact shade of their vehicle before the watch is constructed in the U.S.A. and shipped in an aluminum box marked with the chassis number of the watch and car.
GRIFTER ONYX RANGER GLOVE
Using a mix of materials, the Grifter Onyx Ranger Glove keeps your hands warm when the temperatures drop.

Add to that the wool lining and extended, scalloped cuffs, and you've got a fashionable glove that will keep you comfortable no matter what you're up to. Made in the USA.
BARRETT ALLEY SMUGGLER’S BELT
Never mind the fact that it's quite stylish — the Barrett Alley Smuggler's Belt ($245) is good for far more than just handsomely holding up your pants. On the inside of this hand cut, hand sewn cowhide belt you'll find a hidden pocket that's only accessible after you open the hand forged iron buckle and take the belt off. Measuring just 1" x 3.5", you won't be fitting any huge items inside, but it's plenty large enough for carrying cash, microfiche, or a stash of any illicit substances you wouldn't want found.
YORK ATHLETICS HENRY CLOUD MESH SNEAKER
York Athletics makes minimalist training footwear for active lifestyles. And their signature sneaker continues to improve with the release of the Henry Cloud Mesh. It's their most comfortable shoe to date, getting its name from a custom-engineered, multi-layered air mesh textile. It's woven into a geometric pattern that keeps it strong while remaining soft to the touch and breathable. The foam forms to your foot for a customized fit, making it the perfect choice for your next workout. Available in multiple colorways in low or mid cut.
BEARD BUDDY DOG TAG COMB NECKLACE
If you're going to wear something around your neck, at least make sure it serves a purpose. The Beard Buddy Dog Tag Comb Necklace ($110) has that base covered.

ALEXANDER OLCH FATHER’S DAY MATCHING SETS
Make sure you and your progeny look as spiffy as possible this June 17 with these Alexander Olch Father's Day Matching Sets ($185).

Available in red and white seersucker or blue pinefeather.
Keep your shoes in tip-top shape by giving them a healthy dose of Otter Wax ($9-$90).

Locally crafted in Portland, OR.
KARAS BOLT PEN
Beyond being a rock-solid writing instrument, the Karas Bolt Pen was built to be something more — fun. Its bolt-action mechanism extends and retracts the Pilot G2 ink cartridge in three deliberate steps, making it more enjoyable to fidget with than your average ballpoint. The barrel is machined in the USA from 6061-T6 aluminum or C360 brass, while the clip and related hardware are stainless steel.

Part of a new generation of timeless watches, the Navi Harbor is finished with a leather strap that's been stonewashed in Italy.

LEICA SOFORT INSTANT CAMERA
Leica and instant camera aren't words you see used together very often. The Leica Sofort is the company's take on instant photography, combining the convenience of built-in prints with the brand's signature style and premium build quality. Spitting out 2.44" x 1.81" Instax Mini-format prints ideal for sharing, the camera offers a variety of preset programs that provide point-and-shoot ease for people, sports, selfies, and other common occasions, but this being a Leica, you can also take manual control of the focus, flash, and EV. The internal Lithium-ion battery powers the camera for up to 100 shots per charge. Getting an instant camera only to have to hunt down film for it is a pain, so our Leica Sofort package arrives with one pack of color film and one pack of black-and-white Monochrom film.
FELIX GRAY COMPUTER EYEWEAR
It should come as no surprise that staring at screens all day can lead to eyestrain, blurry vision, and headaches. Felix Gray started to address this and created a line of eyewear that filters blue light and eliminates glare to reduce the side effects of prolonged screen time. To go along with their non-prescription and reading glasses, Felix Gray is now offering prescription glasses as well that utilize the exact same technology that helps reduce negative effects from screens. The eyewear is available in seven high-quality frame styles and ten different colors to match your style and face.
MONTBLANC x BMW ACTIVITY KEY SET
The fob for the new BMW 5 Series Sedan is less of a key and more of a transmitter. At roughly 2" x 0.75", it's tiny enough to be carried in a variety of ways, and the Montblanc x BMW Activity Key Set gives you a couple. A watch-quality black cowhide leather wristband lets you keep the key on your wrist, while the metal key fob makes it easy to keep it attached to any legacy door-openers you carry around.
BIRDWELL x TODD SNYDER BOARD SHORTS
With summer just around the corner, it's time to think about a fresh pair of trunks to celebrate the imminent temperature spikes. The Birdwell x Todd Snyder Board Shorts are a good place to start.

The collection has eight different colorways, each made with enduring quality and timeless style in mind.
TOPO DESIGNS x WOOLRICH KLETTERSACK

BISON DESIGNS KOOL TOOL BELT
Who needs a tool belt when your belt is your tool? The Bison Designs Kool Tool Belt helps keep your pants up and keep you ready for anything by incorporating three wire strippers, large and small flathead screwdrivers, a Phillips head screwdriver, both standard and metric hex tools and rulers, and, of course, a bottle opener all into a single Cr-13 steel buckle.

Each pair is designed for effortless style, and feature signature side-fasteners for adjustments and are made using 100% quick-drying polyester. Iconic 007 imagery is displayed on the shorts, from a still from Live And Let Die's memorable chase scene and the iconic beach scene in Dr. No to artwork from You Only Live Twice and an illustration from the Thunderball film poster features Sean Connery as 007 with a speargun in hand.
Some guys just can't be kept indoors, they need to get out to appreciate everything that life has to offer — and it's just that sort of guy who inspired the Ray-Ban Outdoorsman Craft Sunglasses. Based off the classic aviator style, these sunglasses are finished with hand-stitched deer leather on the brow bar and ear pieces, giving them a distinct, masculine look. They also feature gold-colored metal frames, polarized, mirrored crystal lenses, and a lightweight construction that lets you comfortably wear them all day. So give your eyes a break the next time you step outside, and do it in style.

It has two charging ports for things like your phone, action camera, or speaker, providing up to 60 hours of additional talk time or 400 hours of audio playback. You can recharge it over Micro USB or via the dedicated solar cable input, the integrated glow light can help you get things connected after a long day on the trail, and the rubberized casing keeps it safe from bumps, drops, water, and dust.
