The world's most popular Air Max gets reinvented in a modern, monochromatic way. Super lightweight and ultra-comfortable, this fan-favorite sneaker just received a breathable Flyknit upper and an Ultra 2.0 midsole molded with dual-density foam cushioning.

JW Anderson has teamed back up with Uniqlo and his second collection is now available online and in stores. Yet again, the British designer has brought his unique perspective to seasonal staples. Classics with a slightly off-kilter twist, like these optical striped T-shirts or this subtle patchworked denim jacket. The design is so subtle, you'd miss it if you're not paying attention. But that's the point, right?

If you're going to be wearing just a T-shirt with your jeans, make it a good one. This is a good one. Cut from a heavier fabric than your typical tee, the Flint and Tinder "heavyweight tee" has a great feel, thanks to an old-school yarn spinning technique, which also means it can take a serious beating.

We're suckers for sunglasses that look expensive, but really aren't. These low profile wire and tortoise-rimmed frames have a vintage, minimalist vibe. And they come in a smart soft case with a handy cleaning cloth.

A dutch oven is an old school piece of kitchen equipment—it's heavy and stout but efficient as hell. It will go from stovetop to oven to grill and eventually to the refrigerator. Unfortunately, they're usually an investment of at least $300. Enter the newly-released Milo dutch oven. We haven't tried one yet, but the gents at Gear Patrol have and say it has all the qualities of a Staub or Le Creuset, for less than a third of the price.

We've been a fan of Supergoop for a while because of their high quality formulations and overall effectiveness, but this new development is their coolest yet. Ideal for guys who hate applying moisturizer or sunscreen, this featherweight SPF 30 serum smooths on and absorbs into skin in seconds. Then it works all day, protecting from sun damage and improving skin texture (and you'll never know you even have it on).
