Indigo makes everything a little cooler. This handwoven oxford, cut in a relaxed fit with a band collar is all about the details. Block printed with natural, plant-based indigo paste the stripes feature subtle color variations and imperfections if you look closely. And each individual piece has been patched together, resulting in a subtle but stylish mix of stripes.

You want good coffee, but you don't have much time. Before we get to it, let's just say this right now: This is not instant coffee. “Instant coffee” is bland and kind of sad. This is real coffee—flavorful and rich—that is made almost instantly. How? Cometeer flash freezes third-wave coffee concentrated to retain all the complex flavors and delivers it via recyclable aluminum pods. Pop the pod open and add it to hot water for a quick cup of satisfying coffee. Prefer cold brew? Let the pods thaw in the fridge, and pour over ice water or the milk of your choice to rival any artisanal cold brew. It's not cheap, but it's about the same or less if you're used to buying the good stuff. And this comes with a heap of convenience.

Do you need a leather jump rope? Probably not. Any old jump rope will do. But the more you jump, the better off you'll be. And this handsome heritage-inspired leather jump rope adds some real class to your workout routine, not to mention some serious durability. The weighted wood handles are equipped with ball bearings for extra smoothness and speed, while the leather rope wears beautifully, developing a patina with age. Honestly, it looks so good you can hang it on the wall as a quasi-art piece when not in use.

Maybe it's because we're rewatching 'The Bear' again. But these pro-level Birks have us saying “yes, chef.” They've got all the components of your favorite WFH Boston clogs, but these are outfitted with a comfortable and grippy rubber sole and an extra leather strap around the heel to make them a little more secure. Cut from a durable black leather, they may be made for the kitchen, but we could (and will) wear them anywhere.

Summer is a time for relaxation. If you're the type that likes to come home at the end of a long day, take a nice shower and relax in some “home clothes,” consider these a nice upgrade. The short-sleeve and shorts set from Desmond & Dempsy offer a gentlemanly way to lounge about. The set comes in over 20 different colorways (including this color-block tie-dye version), but we're partial to the classic Oxford stripes.
