A classic sneaker was just made even cooler. Named after Phil Knight's acclaimed memoir, Shoe Dog, this version of the Nike Cortez commemorates the original model that was released in 1972 with the OG Swoosh design featured prominently on the side. A crepe-textured toe bumper, flip-up heel tab and iconic herringbone tread keep the look firmly rooted in sporty nostalgia.

When you want your watch to make a statement, but not scream. That's how we recently described the Topograph watch by Sternglas. The brand is known for timepieces that are functional and elegant, inspired by the Bauhaus design movement. This black, brushed stainless steel beauty is one of their latest releases, a minimalist design accented with a black dial and thin white markings. The slightly arched lugs make for a comfortable fit, as does the soft leather strap (handmade in Germany) which is able to be switched out in mere seconds thanks to handy quick release spring bars.

This is the only hoodie you should be wearing in the summertime. Cut from 12 oz brushed-back fleece, it's made with a custom sun-dye treatment developed especially for Noah. The fit is relaxed and it's the perfect thing to wear on a cool night or anywhere that's over-air-conditioned.

In all honesty, we'd be into this just for the looks alone. But here's the thing, a tabletop smoker takes food and drinks to the next level. Cocktails, foods, even deserts like chocolate chip cookies can be given a deep, rich smoky flavor with this easy-to-use smoker. Made from a glass cloche cover and sturdy walnut base, it looks sharp sitting on a bar cart and makes for one hell of a party trick.

If the tie-dyed trend feels a bit too wild and busy for you, here's your solution. The lavender tie-dyed pattern on Club Monaco's T-shirt is so pale and discreet that you can get away with styling it like a typical white tee. Wear it on its own or layer it under a jacket or overshirt. It's a knowing wink to the trend without going overboard.
