Who says you can’t layer in the summer? This short-sleeve zip work shirt from Noah provides the perfect lightweight layer to throw over a T-shirt or tank. Cut from a soft cotton twill, it's finished with a drawstring hem. The contrast piping along the back yoke gives it a throwback feel, but the relaxed oversized fit feels very much right now.

You don’t have to be a product nerd to appreciate this case—or lack therof. The “teardown” designs are shockingly realistic. In fact, they're a 99% accurate representation of your device's internals. The cases have military-grade impact protection along with tactile buttons and are available in a wide range of phone models. As the designer says, “It's like having a transparent back for your phone ... without the voided warranty.”

We love everything about this watch. It was originally designed to celebrate this summer's Olympians, but then the 2020 Games were postponed and Shinola's factory temporarily shutdown. But now the factory is re-opening and the Champ Detrola watch will still commemorate the grit, beauty and endurance of the human spirit—only now it's celebrating the feats of strength of those who are the champions on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis. The 43mm timepiece features a resin case with a striped dial, a quick-release silicone strap and a reliable Argonite 705 quartz movement. What's more, Shinola has pledged to donate all revenue from this watch to the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan.

Sunglasses are all about balance. You want them to be well-made, but you hate paying too much for them because they're so damn easy to lose or sit on. Le Specs is a brand that toes the line perfectly. They offer quality frames that are very reasonably priced. The lenses are durable (but not polarized) and we're really feeling the new Alto style, with its hexagon rim and textured metal frames.

These aren’t your average underwear. If Batman wears boxer briefs under his batsuit, these are the boxers he should pull on. Why? Mack Weldon's all-new underwear design is crafted to feel like a second skin. The brand uses body mapping technology for a unique, ergonomic fit that conforms to your body shape. The seamless construction allows for airflow and support where you need it, which make the boxer briefs ideal for workouts or under board shorts or simply for a day lounging around the house.
