Who says pleated pants have to be fancy? Not Acne Studios. The brand's new Pierre chinos are easygoing and versatile. The kind of comfortable pants you can wear while working from home or going out on the weekend. Cuffed at the hems and cut from a soft cotton-twill, the pants have single pleats beneath the waistband that line up with the subtle pressed creases and enhance the tapered leg shape. And they're available in three versatile shades of khaki, navy and black.

This is winter's version of your favorite fall jacket. Vetra's been making chore jackets in France for nearly a century, so it's safe to say they know a thing or two about quality by this point. For their latest iteration, they've swapped out the usual cotton material for wool herringbone that feels a bit like wrapping yourself up in a warm blanket. It's finished with sturdy buttons and oversized pockets, making it as useful as it is handsome.

'Tis the season for new socks. Whether you're giving them, receiving them or simply treating yourself to a few new pairs. These have become a current favorite of ours. They're simple, soft and stretchy. Plus, they look good whether you're working out in shorts or pulling them on with boots or loafers.

How often do you use pencils? Well, you might use them more if they were this cool. Kart's modern design is made entirely from 100% pure graphite with a 2B hardness and provides five times more graphite than the standard #2 pencil. That also means they're heavier than a wooden pencil, but it makes for a satisfying, weighty hold. But don't worry ... a matte coating helps prevent smudges on fingers.

Take your Patagonia fleece to the next level. Sid Mashburn just introduced this incredibly soft sweater-fleece hybrid. The half-zip pullover is made of a plush shearling wool and finished with brass zippers and merino jersey trim on the placket and side pockets. We'd suggest getting it for someone as a gift, but we think you're going to want this for yourself.
