Get to know your new favorite layering piece. Based on a Japanese haori jacket, this update from Akashi-Kama modernizes the traditional haori—tapering the fit for a modern silhouette and lightening it up for easy everyday wear. Cut and sewn in America from Japanese double gauze cotton milled in Osaka, it hangs on the body perfectly. It's somewhere between your favorite camp collar shirt and a lightweight jacket, which means it looks great thrown over a simple tee or tank and elevates any look.

$119 by Akashi-Kama


Loosen up your pants. Sure, you might not be ready for J.Crew's new “giant chino”, but these relaxed pleated chinos are the gateway drug to the wide pants we're going to be seeing more of this fall. The vintage-inspired pants are cut from a soft cotton twill and built with room to move, thanks to some subtle single-pleats and a fuller leg. Plus, you can get them on discount with the code below.

Socks are socks, right? Well, not exactly. These aren't your average socks. They're softer, stronger and they just look ... better. Weaving Italian craftsmanship with the spirit of classic American sports, Shiro focuses on the little details (like a looser weave, fine merino yarn and a hand-linked toe) and purpose-driven design to craft socks that perfectly complement your vintage sneakers, loafers and suede desert boots. They come in two colors: a crisp white and the perfect shade of off-white.

The items in your home should be unique. Even if you haven't been able to travel lately, bringing in pieces with worldly charm adds some intrigue to your interiors. This terracotta bowl is handmade and glazed with a matte black finish so each one is one-of-a-kind. It looks sharp on a desk or entry table as a place to drop your keys or it's just big enough to house your remotes and matches on your coffee table.

You can't just throw on any T-shirt and expect to look cool. If you want to look as good as Carmy in The Bear, who managed to look stylish as hell in just a plain white tee, you need the right one. (And some toned arms from constant chopping and stirring might help too.) Cristina Spiridakis, one of the show's costume designers, confirmed that he was wearing Merz B. Schwanen in several episodes. These are shirts made the old fashioned way—the 1950s tee features loopwheel cotton construction (no side seams), a rolled crewneck collar and triangular armpit inserts for ease of movement.
