Now you can wear your favorite summer shoes throughout the fall and winter. Why? Because the iconic Stan Smith sneaker just got a clever winter-friendly upgrade. To ensure your feet stay warm (and your socks stay dry), Adidas added GORE-TEX's latest technology which has been engineered specifically for footwear called "Infinium Thermium" to the sneaker's lining. Even better news? The extra protection doesn't add any aesthetic bulk. It still looks and feels like the classic shoe.

Shinola's newest watch is based on the past. But in the best possible way. Named to give a nod to Omaha-class cruisers in the US Navy, the brand's latest timepiece embodies a classic style that easily transcends generations. Featuring a sturdy stainless steel case in a sleek, throwback rectangular shape and a glossy milky white enamel dial, it's finished with a premium leather strap that can easily be swapped out with a quick flick of your thumb.

Upgrade your coffee table. It's probably due for a fresh new book to grab your guests' attention. The latest book from Highsnobiety seeks to define "New Luxury," a term that summarizes how streetwear and sneakers have not only infiltrated the upper tiers of fashion, but became it. This well-designed 320-page tome isn't just about what you wear, but also what you know. This book provides the foundational knowledge of how youth-driven culture and fashion trends start from the ground up.

Now here's a shirt that won't let you down. According to Flint and Tinder, their latest utilitarian shirt is "comfortable like a flannel but tough like a denim jacket." Constructed of a panama canvas that's remarkably tough without being too thick, the shirt has just a touch of stretch for comfort and freedom of movement. What's more, the details like slightly oversized dual flap chest pockets and durable faux corozo buttons give it a look that works layered over a T-shirt or buttoned up with a proper pair of navy chinos.

Dress your desk for the job you want, not the one you have. Is that the saying? In any case, this modern update on the classic library lamp is rendered in sharp black marble with textured metal shades. The design is a collaboration with Spanish design studio Mermelada Estudio, and while this certainly looks good on a desk, it would also be well suited for a dining table or entryway.
