A great watch doesn't have to cost a lot. This much we know by now, but an affordable watch—when well made like this—still surprises us. The latest collaboration between Hodinkee and Swatch takes its inspiration from a clever and boldly colored Swatch released in 1990, The Stoplight. This time around, the new limited edition watch has been reworked with a number of firsts for the Sistem51 lineup, such as a semi-transparent case, crown, and strap and a cut-out dial that exposes the pointer-date disc below.

It's one part shirt, one part jacket. But it's 100% cool. The relaxed fit pullover is cut from a cotton-blend with a touch of stretch for ultimate comfort. And it's finished with a half-zip placket and an oversized chest pocket that's sewn lower than usual—let's call it a rib pocket. But in any case, it looks cool and feels great on. Plus, there's that price.

There's no better time to buy this book. Few have challenged the status quo within the space of fashion, art and design quite like Virgil Abloh. His untimely passing is a reminder to relish the work of creative geniuses, especially when they're as kind and curious as Abloh. This book lets you experience his investigative design process and marvel at Nike's engineering ingenuity. You won't regret owning it.

The holidays are a time of both celebration and stress. Both occasions call for a drink. These clever infused ice cubes channel the characteristics of the Negroni cocktail with a spicy cherry-orange flavor enhanced by the Wormwood essence of Torino vermouth.

Restaurant merch is the new band T-shirt. Show your support for old school joints by wearing some free advertisements. This one, from our favorite dim sum spot in New York's Chinatown, features a gritty black and white photo of the storefront on a plain white tee. It's been a fan favorite since 2011 (and the restaurant itself has been in business since 1920), so it won't be going out of style anytime soon.
