This is more than your average T-shirt. Developed by the Northwestern Knitting Company, it's cut from a proprietary and inventive merino dual cloth. The outside is made from a 100% merino wool face with a cotton/modal reverse layer for comfort and durability. It gives the tee some heft while keeping it light, and the slightly boxy cut provides a modern silhouette that works with both jeans and office-appropriate trousers.

The ideal polo should be lightweight and tailored to fit perfectly. That was the goal for one of Zachary Prell's most popular pieces, and considering the cult following the shirt has, we'd say they nailed it. The Caldwell polo is available in 12 colorways, including two new summer shades—aqua and flamingo. Cut from exceptionally soft micro-pique cotton, it's easy to wear on its own now or layer under a jacket come fall.

Shinola doesn't do anything small. And that's what we love about them. Behold the brand's most modern (and most affordable) watch ever. The Detrola line of watches is crafted from high-grade TR90 resin that's durable yet lightweight and finished with a quick-release silicone strap. And while it offers a cheaper price tag and a simplified aesthetic, the Detrola collection still provides the durable construction you'd expect from a Shinola product.

Buying an authentic Basquiat painting is pretty much out of the question for most of us. This might be the next best thing. Created in collaboration with the Jean-Michel Basquiat estate, The Skateroom's skate deck sets feature some of the late New York artist's most legendary works printed across a triptych of boards, including "Hollywood Africans," "Horn Players" and "Irony of a Negro Policeman." Made from sustainable Canadian maple wood, each piece features handmade silkscreen prints and comes with wall mounts.

A statement belt is the easiest way to elevate some jeans and a T-shirt. Specially made for Sid Mashburn in Los Angeles and finished with an unlacquered brass D-ring, this fringed cotton woven belt is just bold enough to make an impact with anything you wear it with. But it's not so busy that it's distracting.
