When it comes to jeans, fit is everything. And leave it to Levi's to get the details right with how we want our denim to fit in 2019. Their 501 taper fit is a slightly relaxed pair of the brand's legendary original straight fit jean, now with a slim tapered leg. It's a contemporary take on a classic look. And you can get it standard or cut from a soft denim with a touch of stretch for even more comfort.

Designed by Charles and Ray Eames 70 years ago, this radio was never made—until now. Apparently, the elegantly simple model, which featured the signature Eames molded plywood, was rejected by the manufacturer. At the time, the client wanted something more "normal," meaning a larger cabinet-sized radio with lots of knobs and switches. Thankfully, this midcentury modern gem has been revived by Swiss design company Vitra, updated with technology from the British manufacturer REVO. It features Bluetooth wireless streaming, Aux in-port, a dual alarm and a full-range 4 ohm speaker.

We like a simple shoe that requires a double take to pick up on the details. Case in point, this Vault by Vans collaboration with Taka Hayashi. The sneakers, cut from natural Vachetta leather with suede overlays, have a subtle monochromatic style that look at once street smart and sharply styled. Wear them with torn jeans, sweats or even your nicest dress pants. Because they'll look great with all them.

RYU has made the ultimate gym bag. But it's actually much more than that. This cleverly engineered rucksack can flex between your gym bag, office pack and weekender luggage with plenty of room to spare for your everyday essentials. The molded internal shell gives the bag its unique shape, whether empty or full (which also protects all your gear) and the drop-front opening means easy packing and access to your stuff. There are mesh pockets inside for water bottles and other gear, accessible laptop sleeves and hidden pockets for organization and security. In short, this bag has it all.

This is the kind of jacket that never lets you down. Layer it under your coat now for some added warmth and texture. Then, come spring, wear it over a light sweater as your sole piece of outerwear. And even in the dead of summer, you can throw it on and elevate a simple T-shirt and jeans look for date night. The jacket is ruggedly handsome and durable enough to get rolled up and stuffed into your carry-on for trips. It's a reasonably-priced investment piece that pays for itself in no time.
