You can usually have sunglasses one of two ways. They can be cheap (but not great quality) or they can be well-made (but a tad pricey). These buck that trend. Shady Spex offers handsome, vintage-inspired frames that feature thicker, glare-reducing polarized lenses typically found on glasses that cost four times as much.

Get ready for questions. Because this monochromatic take on an iconic sneaker elicits a response from people. They look like a cool special-edition pair you picked up in Japan or maybe a collaboration with an understated luxury brand. But they're just a relatively new colorway that you can cop for sixty bucks on the brand's website. But you can keep that a secret between us.

The closer you look at these shorts, the more you find to appreciate. For the second season Norse Projects has collaborated with the artist Geoff McFetridge. The clothing features hidden illustrations and other text that are about self discovery and adapting to our ever-changing world. These lightweight nylon shorts are built for movement—the side splits allow for maximum comfort, while built-in compression tights increase blood circulation. They come with a packable back pocket along with subtle embroidered and printed artwork on both the interior and exterior of the shorts that make for interesting surprises for both you and those admiring your shorts.

Another week, another great camp collar shirt. This one is more understated and subdued, cut from a soft linen in an inky overdyed navy color. The proportions are relaxed, with a boxy fit and generous chest pockets. So order your normal size but expect a roomier fit. Trust us, you'll appreciate the extra breeziness it provides.

Want to make your mornings a little easier? Switch up your soap. It brings some new energy to your shower. Right now, we like this old school bar from one of Portugal's oldest soapmakers. The classic scent blends citrus notes of bergamot and neroli with the earthiness of patchouli leaf for a sudsy lather that smells both clean and masculine. Plus, since the soap itself is formulated from an blend of glycerin and walnut oil, it helps lock in your skin's natural moisture.
