We love collaborations like this. Ben Gorham, founder of luxury fragrance house Byredo, has partnered with IKEA for a collection of sophisticated candles offered at incredibly affordable prices. The 13 scented candles—named after the Swedish word for "invisible"—are made to provoke the kind of emotion that's hard to put into words, like nostalgia and dreams. Gorham has impeccable taste and not only do the candles smell great (our favorite is the slightly smoky tobacco and honey), but come in handsome glazed stoneware jars.

Buck Mason always nails the little details. The brand has a knack for taking something simple, like a T-shirt, and somehow making it even better with little tweaks. Case in point: their new suede trucker jacket. The design is inspired by classic denim jackets, but this one is cut from full grain (leather lining, suede face, no split) cow suede. It's been specially washed for a comfortable, worn-in softness and finished with hand applied whiskers at the sleeve, which means it looks and feels like you've had it for years.

What's better than a cashmere beanie? A tie-dyed cashmere beanie that sets you apart from the rest of the pack wearing boring solid colored caps. Part of limited-edition of tie-dyed knits from Alex Mill, the stocking cap comes in three different colorways, so take your pick.

It took ten years to make these shoes. Well, not really. This speciality pair of New Balances celebrates a decade of collaboration with fellow all-American brand, J.Crew. The U.S.-made sneakers feature tonal suede uppers with a subtle embossed “N” logo finished with 3M speckled laces and an embroidered Roman numeral X on the heel. They actually chose the grey metallic colors to mark the occasion since a 10th anniversary is traditionally marked with tin.

Tom Ford can make anything sexy and luxurious. Even recycling. Just take his new watch—each one removes the equivalent of 30 to 40 bottles of plastic waste from the ocean. It's all part of a larger initiative to reduce plastic use and get smarter about everything from packaging to manufacturing. As for the timepiece, it's a ruggedly handsome design with a matte black dial finished with Super Luminova painted hands and an anti-reflective sapphire crystal. Even the braided strap is made from ocean plastic. Moreover, as the designer says, “It doesn't feel like a compromise because it's beautifully made ... you see it on your arm and you think, Wow, you can make great things out of ocean plastic.”
