Knit polos are still having the best summer ever. And the good news is that they'll easily transition into autumn. This one, from British label Percival, sold out after Chris Evans wore it to his movie premiere. But it's been restocked and remains one of our favorites. Inspired by impressionist art, the knit cotton has a soft, textural quality and a full placket—meaning you can wear it open and layered or buttoned-up by itself.

A desert boot is a desert boot, right? Wrong. Astorflex already made some of the best suede desert boots for your money, but they've just introduced a slight tweak to modernize it just so. Like the classic chukkas, they're made in Italy the old fashioned way with full-grain roughout calf leather (and a soft, smooth interior). And they've got a memory foam insole lined in soft calfskin for ultimate, all-day comfort. But the silhouette has been streamlined and the natural crepe rubber soles have been cut in a smooth, wedge profile. The changes are small, but they give an old school shoe a whole new vibe.

So you've been looking for a white bucket hat since seeing Bullet Train, too? Apparently, he was wearing this one by SSAM but it's a tad pricey (and sold-out nearly everywhere). A nice alternative is the all-cotton hat by Carhartt Work in Progress. The simple style will look even better after getting rumpled and worn-in so don't baby it.

You're not ready for this. But we're gonna tell you about it. It's hot sauce. For coffee. Seriously. Sure, it started as a dare but Ujjo creator Lauren D'Souza mastered a spicy formula (minus the usual garlic and vinegar) that adds a pop of heat and spice to your cup of brew—not unlike the fragrant spicy chai she grew up drinking. And she's not alone, it's now selling in more than 16 countries and has developed a cult following. And it's not just for coffee. D'Souza says it's great in iced tea, whiskey cocktails or even over ice cream too.

Your things deserve a beautiful place to be put down. Craighill is a brand that focuses on the little details—they craft items that not only look good, but are purposeful and pleasurable to use too. Their new facet bowls come in two sizes and the larger one can be used in a myriad of ways: a centerpiece display, a fruit bowl or a tray to help tidy and style your coffee table, desk or entryway. With a beveled edge at the bottom, the bowls have a softly floating appearance and the rings of the wood grain elegantly map the slope of their interiors. It's a piece that looks as good as it feels to use.
