You may not need to wear this jacket right now. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't prep for the coming fall weather and make sure you get this badass, durable and ultra versatile jacket from Flint and Tinder. Tough, timeless, and made in the USA, this handsome trucker jacket is made from a waxed and weather-resistant Martexin 7 oz. sailcloth, which like selvage denim or finely tanned leather, will develop its own patina with wear. It's also fully lined with a soft and cozy striped blanket lining.

An affordable sneaker collaboration that's as cool as it comfortable? Sign us up. These kicks from Converse's new collaboration with Carhartt WIP have quickly become a favorite in the office. The sneakers are made of durable cordura fabric and feature a logo patch made from coated tarp-like material and sturdy D-ring hardware at the heel. The military influence is subtle. There's nothing flashy about these. Just the right amount of functional details to make it feel stylishly utilitarian and modern. Plus, they come in standard issue colors like black, olive and white.

The legendary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is known for her dots. And now those dots can be found on a series of skate decks through MoMA's museum shop. This triptych makes for a particularly striking and relatively affordable piece of art for your place (it even comes with mounting hardware). Crafted from seven-ply Canadian maple wood, they feature dot details from Kusama's YELLOW TREES (1994).

This sweatshirt has a little bit of everything. A slight mock neck. Classic raglan sleeves and a side seam gusset. Plus a modern interpretation of an old school kangaroo pouch pocket. It's also cut from soft and not-too-heavy french terry that has been dyed a particularly cool shade of "sand."

If you haven't heard, Magnum P.I. was resurrected this week. The new show, which premiered last night on CBS, is a modern interpretation of the '80s TV classic. Of course, for many, Tom Selleck is the only Magnum P.I. worth recognizing. Just ask Vaurnet, the high-end glasses brand, who is bringing back their iconic "Tom" style worn by the original Magnum P.I. on the original show. A bold aviator frame, they feature the brand's signature mineral glass lenses that are hand crafted outside of Paris to deliver unparalleled protection, clarity and durability.
