This might be the ultimate summer shirt. Wythe makes one of our favorite moleskin shirts and this gabardine pearl snap is their spring-summer version of it. Made of a moisture-wicking Tencil fabric, it's designed to not only keep you dry but also breathe on warm summer days. Cut with generous chest pockets and a vintage-inspired collar, it comes in seven seasonal shades.

Don't call it a comeback. The Clarks desert boot just a got refresh for spring 2021, elevating the legendary shoe to new heights—literally. The signature crepe rubber sole has been doubled giving it a more modern, bottom-heavy look and feel. And while the originals are lined with soft leather, these come unlined, making them a bit lighter for the warmer months. We haven't tried them yet, but we have a feeling they'll not only last longer but feel a bit more comfortable too.

Smoked cocktails are cool looking and great tasting. But they tend to require elaborate equipment. This kit allows you to capture smoke in a decanter, then flip it right-side up and pour in your liquor. Give it a swirl and you've successfully infused your drink. Plus, it's handsome enough to sit out on your bar making it even easier to use.

We wish we could fly to Japan right now. Even though that's not possible, we can bring a little Japan into our homes. In 1892 the Japanese company Tamanohada started out making a simple, round ball of everyday soap. Today, they still use those traditional methods to craft this oversized bar, scented with fresh muscovado sugar cane. Pressed in a traditional kashigata wooden mold, it takes the form of the Tai fish—a snapper native to the western Pacific Ocean that represents good luck and great prosperity in Japanese culture. What better to greet you in the shower each morning (or give as a gift)?

We didn't think Persol could get any cooler. But then we discovered these throwback tortoiseshell aviators that were featured in both La Dolce Vita and The Talented Mr. Ripley—worn by Marcello Mastroianni in the former film and Jude Law in the latter. Made in Italy with Persol's patented meflecto system for ultimate flexibility, the frames are as durable as they are handsome.
