This is cooler than a cardigan and more relaxed than a blazer. We really like this noragi jacket from Oakland-based brand Akashi-Kama. They call it "a staple of workwear in Japan with our American twist on a light jacket." Cut from Japanese cotton and dyed with natural indigo, it's finished with a triple-stitched collar hem, traditional pattered yolk lining and gold aglets on the front tie closure. Layer it up now and throw it on throughout the spring. (Get free shipping with code ROSEGOLD)

Even the classics need refreshing now and then. The Clarks Wallabee is known as one of the world's most comfortable shoes, thanks to its moccasin construction, structural silhouette and cushy crepe rubber sole. All that remains the same, but the signature suede his been dyed in an haphazard painterly way for an eye-catching marble-meets-camo design.

Behold, the most comfortable pleated pants you'll ever wear. Made from stretch cotton in a rich navy hue, Acne's Pierre trousers are simply styled with a single pleat in each leg and finished with a generous folded cuff. It's a style that works at the office or with some sneakers and a sweatshirt on the weekend.

When it comes to audio equipment, it should look as good as it sounds. That's our theory anyway. And Gearbox's transparent turntable definitely lives up to that standard. Drawing inspiration from Dieter Rams' iconic 1955 Braun PC 3 SV record player, this compact piece brings back the transparent aesthetic that helped their previous model stand out, but adds an upgraded belt drive with an aluminum pulley for better speed stability, as well as upgraded electronics throughout for a performance boost. Plus, it comes with a Bluetooth transmitter that allows you to stream vinyl songs to wireless speakers and add tracks from your vinyl collection to your Spotify playlist.

Every guy looks dapper in a knit polo. Don't believe us? Just try one on and watch the compliments roll in. This one, from MR PORTER's in-house label, Mr P., is spun in a traditional piqué stitch from soft cotton threads and accented with contrasting cuffs and collar, giving it a handsome, throwback appeal. Well that and the stylish '70s-era orange/maroon color combination.
