This jacket has a little bit of everything. It's inspired by a legendary piece of military clothing: the jacket worn during World War II by the British Special Boat Service. This 2020 version suits any man on a mission, cut from durable yet breathable ripstop fabric that shrugs off moisture. And there's plenty of storage—multiple front patch pockets and a discrete zippered back pocket—to help keep the elements away from your belongings.

Refined gentlemen need workwear pants too. These camp cargo pants from Todd Snyder are cut from Italian herringbone cotton/linen fabric and finished with premium construction details. The oversized patch pockets add a layer of dimension while the tailored, straight cut ensures the pants look lean and clean. Which is why you can dress these up with a jacket and knit polo or roll them up and wear 'em with a T-shirt and some sandals.

We miss long days out in the sun. Maybe this hat reminds us of that. Maybe we're getting it in preparation for the sunny days ahead. Either way, the four-panel hat—cut from a lightweight nylon with a subtle loop label above the brim and a trail-inspired elastic adjustor in the back—is a smart buy. It comes in three colorways, but we'll get the most wear out of the navy.

The secret ingredient that will make all your home cooking better. Harvested from waters in the northwest of Iceland and processed using only sustainable geo-thermal energy, this delicate sea salt is flaky and crunchy. And while there are several flavor profiles, we're crazy about this rich, smoky option—slow smoked over birchwood for a deep, complex flavor that's the perfect finisher for everything from eggs and meat to roasted vegetables and even chocolate chip cookies.

Want to make your place instantly feel bigger? We'd all appreciate that these days. This simple arched mirror, outlined in a lean tubular metal frame, provides something of an optical illusion—giving depth to walls and making it look like there's more space than there really is. Place it near a window and your mirror also bounces light, which helps visually open up a room.
