Own a piece of history. Emeco designed their now-iconic Navy Chair in 1944 for the US Navy and the design remains virtually unchanged. Crafted from recycled aluminum, it was built specifically to be a lightweight, highly durable chair that could last multiple lifetimes aboard a dangerous naval ship. Each one is still handmade in the USA from the best materials on the market and is shockingly comfortable, considering you're sitting on metal. And because they're so classic, they'll never be out of style and will suit any home you bring them into.

A great watch doesn't have to cost a fortune. Timex has just upgraded their popular Navi XL dive watch with a 21-jewel automatic movement. Inspired by classic military timepieces, it's kitted out with the kinds of details typically found on high-end watches: a date window, mineral glass crystal and rotating dive bezel. And it's not just good looking. The high-visibility hands and markings along with 100m of water resistance ensure that it's a watch ready for adventure.

These are just brilliant. We want Retaw's clever cologne capsules in our desk drawer, Dopp kit and glove box. That way, if we ever forget to spritz or simply need to freshen up on the go, we're always prepared to smell our best. Each single-use capsule contains a fragrance cream from Japanese grooming brand Retaw. Available in four distinct scents, from patchouli and bergamot to fresh-milled soap and cedarwood.

This is your between-seasons sweatshirt. Buck Mason really has become our go-to for great T-shirts and they make some really killer sweatshirts too. This basically combines the two. The heavy weight cotton tee, modeled after a vintage athletic shirt, is heavier than a standard T-shirt, but much lighter than a Terry sweatshirt. Meaning you can layer it under jackets now and then wear it solo all spring and summer. Plus, it comes in five different colors.

This feels and looks a whole lot more expensive than it is. Sometimes, you find a really nice piece at a place like H&M and you just can't pass it up. This shirt jacket has a cool surplus vibe and everything from the buttons to the oversized pockets just feel right. Are there jackets of better quality out there? Of course. But the fact that this is so affordable just makes it that much more easy to like.
