We're calling this Fall's waviest sweater. Literally. The designers at Taylor Stitch have outdone themselves with this 2019 take on the classic chunky fisherman's sweater. Inspired by the ocean's surface, the zig-zag knit adds some subtle visual impact to an otherwise timeless sweater. The wool blend is substantial but not so heavy as to sacrifice breathability or comfort. And if you buy it during the pre-sale, you get it an early adopter discount.

Is this the manliest scented candle ever made? Perhaps. From the mind of famed industrial designer Tom Dixon, the weighty vessel is cast from raw alloy and finished with a brushed lid that can also double as a stand. Inside, a soy-blend candle (which will burn for approximately 40 hours) is scented with subtle woody notes and the essence of cold steel and amber.

Now here's a combo we love to see. The Philadelphia based menswear label American Trench makes handsome coats built to last. But such quality usually comes with a hefty price tag. Thankfully, the brand has just introduced their new belted trench—a more wallet-friendly take on their namesake American Trench coat. Cut and sewn in Los Angeles, the coats are made from weatherproofed Japanese twill, and boast the same classic design, tailored fit and thoughtful details including a removable belt, lined sleeves for easy on-and-off and tonal Corozo nut buttons. All for a very reasonable price.

These are your chinos' cooler fall cousin. A pair of moleskin pants are an old school staple that you don't see as often these days. But Saturdays NYC has revived them by cutting them in a classic workwear-inspired silhouette and finishing with such details as pin-tuck single pleats, a tab-front waistband and back flap pocket. Available in both a smoky taupe and black, we're partial to the taupe.

Behold, your new grooming secret weapon. If you're not using a retinol at night, you're going to be sorry. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow. But soon. And while some retinols can be harsh on skin, this one, from Onekind—a new natural unisex line of products from the makers behind The Motley—is effective yet gentle. That's because it mixes the potent retinol and peptides (which smooth the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines) with soothing birch bark extract and Vitamin E (which combat redness, irritation and dryness). Plus, everything is plant based and free of synthetic fragrance, colors or parabens. We got a sneak peek before it launched and loved how well it worked (especially compared to products that cost three times as much).
