Understated elegance is the mark of a true gentleman. This is something the team at Hodinkee clearly understands and proves with their new range of watch straps. The Cooper Collection is made out of English Bridle leather, sourced from hardwearing steerhide, that undergoes weeks of vegetable oak tanning that results in a soft, less glossy finish. Hodinkee says they're the most durable straps they've ever made. This robustness also ensures the straps soften naturally without stretching or breaking apart over time.

There are still plenty of chilly days left. So pick up one of these beanies from New York-based label Noah. The unique knitwear pattern incorporates three colors—adding depth and character to the design of an otherwise standard and utilitarian piece of winter wear. It's available in three colorways, but the blue seems to be our team's favorite.

This suitcase comes with its own carbon offsets—kind of. Tumi, long known for its nearly indestructible ballistic nylon bags, has introduced a new line of luggage aimed at eco-conscious travelers. The bags are made from post-industrial recycled nylon combined with material made from post-consumer recycled bottles. What's more, they're just as durable as the original suitcases. They come in a wide variety of styles and sizes and include features like expandability and dual-compartment organizational pockets. Plus, the rugged green will separate you from the pack of all-black rollers.

We love how these pants are a little bit of everything. They're a little like track pants or joggers, but they've got some classic chino style and, of course, standard military influences. Which is why they're so versatile. You can wear them on the weekend with a hoodie or even to work with a nice sweater. You can wear them traveling or just lounging around the house. They're not cheap but for the amount you'll wear them, you should get your money's worth.

These aren't sneakers for shy guys. Somewhere between bottle green and olive drab, these tonal suede kicks from Vans are the perfect shoe to brighten up a dull winter day. Wear them with navy pants and wide-leg chinos or your favorite beat-up jeans. Pair them with wooly socks now and by spring, they'll be worn-in and ready to be worn with shorts.
