This is the summer's answer to your favorite chore jacket. Form & Thread's brand ethos is “to do simple things exceptionally well.” And they accomplish that with every single garment they produce. This is made from shirting material, so it's extra light and breathable, but gives you the layering ability (and pockets) of a jacket that you can wear despite summer's inhospitable heat and humidity.

Don't hate us. Because we're about to make the case for a $50 stack of Post-Its. Okay, so Grovemade—makers of beautiful desktop accessories—wouldn't want us to call it that. And, to be fair, that doesn't quite do it justice anyway. This refillable sticky note stand pairs beautifully with a Mac and comes with three sets of their tasteful “dot grid sticky notes.” Do we need it? Maybe not. Do we want it? Hell yeah.

This shirt is cool—literally. Cut from a rich, overdyed seersucker, it's got a touch of stretch for extra ease of movement. Finished with Corozo nut buttons, dual chest pockets and a generous collar, there are definite throwback vibes here. But the typically vertical stripes of the seersucker fabric are played horizontally here, giving it a uniquely modern look.

If you don't have a pair yet, now's the time to buy. Because these sandals pretty much do it all. They're ideal house shoes. They're waterproof and essentially indestructible. And because they're Birkenstocks, they're undeniably comfortable too. This particular model is made from shock-absorbing EVA meaning they're also incredibly lightweight as well as long-wearing. They come in a couple different colors, but this olive drab is incredibly versatile.

Todd Snyder is a sweatshirt master. We don't think he's made one for his collaboration with Champion that we didn't like. It's only been two weeks since we mentioned a short sleeve sweatshirt, but this one deserves recognition. Perhaps these will be a bigger summer trend than we'd originally thought. This new take has the same signature cut that you know, but this one is made from a midweight French terry with reversed raglan sleeves for an added cool, textured inside/out effect.
