These pants have something for everyone. They're as comfortable as sweats. They're tapered and pleated for a shot of classic style. And since they're made by Gramicci, they're built to withstand the rigors of outdoor pursuits. The steely grey colorway feels modern and the integrated belt gives it a cool, streetwear vibe. In short, you'll get a lot of wear out of these bad boys.

Investing in house shoes is an investment in better days. Whether you're working from home or just lounging around on the weekends, Del Toro's first house slipper is handmade in Italy from the brand's signature black velvet, lined with the softest Italian Napa leather and finished with a cushioned footbed. Meaning these are not only extremely comfortable for day-to-day wear, but they'll last you a decade--maybe longer. Also, the heel is able to be discreetly monogrammed. And, if you ask us, if you're going to shell out for gentlemanly footwear, you should definitely get 'em personalized.

This jacket isn't vintage. But it looks like it might be from another decade. But that's exactly what makes it look so damn cool. The high-pile fleece is is decorated with a jacquard pattern designed by NOMA t.d., the specialized Japanese textile label known for its unique interpretations of classic prints and patterns. It comes in both beige and black, but we're partial to the dark side.

If you like overshirts, you need a noragi jacket. The traditional Japanese workwear garment is like a cardigan mixed with a robe and makes for an ideal layering piece. Our favorites are made by the Oakland-based brand Akashi-Kama. Their new army green noragi features a Hawaiian floral contrast lining. This colorway is inspired by the veterans of the segregated Japanese-American units from WWII. Cut from a mid-weight Japanese oxford organic cotton, they're finished with a triple-stitched collar hem and gold aglets on the front tie closure.

Classic pajamas are a bold, sophisticated move. The quickest way to de-stress, chill or unwind is to strip out of your regular clothes and ease into some pajamas. And this is an easy pair to pick up. Cut from quality soft cotton, they look and feel expensive, but they're very affordably priced.
