Take your sweats to the next level. Everlane just unveiled its new Track line and this was the standout piece for us. Featuring a classic crew neckline, raglan sleeves, a front kangaroo pocket, and a relaxed fit, the crewneck sweatshirt has a signature look that will always be style.

Photography can be an expensive hobby. But it doesn't have to be. The original Ilford Sprite 35 was a popular point-and-shoot camera in the 1960s and the new Sprite 35-II offers the same simplicity and functionality for today. It has a fixed-focus, single-element f/9 31mm lens, a fixed shutter speed of 1/120s, and a built-in flash for low-light closeups. Which means, all you need to do is pop in the film and start shooting.

These are the perfect vintage jeans ... made better. Todd Snyder has opened up a full denim shop with a range of options. There are selvedge styles made from denim crafted from cotton grown within a 400-mile radius of Louisiana's Vidalia Mills. The fabric is woven on old-school Draper looms sourced from North Carolina's legendary White Oak mill. And then there are these expertly washed jeans, which have all the vintage-inspired design details of a pair you'd score from eBay, but in a soft 12.5 oz stretch denim that makes all-day wear easy and comfortable.

If you prefer analog note taking, these are for you. We were introduced to Write Notepads & Co. via A Continuous Lean's newsletter and have since picked up a few for ourselves. Founded by third-generation bookbinder Chris Rothe, their mission is to “make modern notebooks with old-school processes—durable, textural charm meets classically beautiful design.” We like the Meeting Notebook, because it has designated spots for notes and action items.

Our brunching has suffered over the pandemic. Which means our Bloody Mary consumption has plummeted. But thankfully, our friends at Jack Rudy Cocktail Co., purveyors of old school bar staples, have made the perfect at-home mixer. Yes, it's got tomato juice, hot sauce and horseradish along with a heavy dash of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce. But the note that really sets it apart is the brightness from the use of fresh lemon, which gives it a lift, and a true restaurant quality unmatched by other brands.
