This line was a long time coming. Jack Carlson, the founder of Rowing Blazers, has teamed up with another designer, Karl Blanchard, to launch a label in honor of tennis legend Arthur Ashe. The two worked with his estate to create a line featuring both archival replicas and new pieces inspired by his on- and off-court style. This leopard-print piqué polo is the perfect example. What's more, a portion of all proceeds are split between the UCLA's Arthur Ashe Legacy Fund and the Social Change Fund United, two organizations the estate still supports to this day.

Say hello to your new favorite fall T-shirt. Knit like a lightweight sweater and cut like your favorite tee, it instantly adds some polish to whatever you're wearing. The yarn-dyed 16 gauge cotton jersey knit features a light slub texture with subtle ribbing at the collar and hem. Available in three neutral colorways, it's machine-washable and finished with hand-linked seams for extra durability.

When it comes to loafers, you often have to make a choice. You can have them good looking or you can have them comfortable. You don't always get both. But these two-tone loafers from Marc Nolan not only capture the current trend of white-accented penny loafers, but they're cut from soft suede with a supple leather lining and finished with a natural gum rubber sole. I wore a pair on vacation and even with sunburned feet, found them to be some of the most comfortable slip-ons I've ever tried.

There's really no such thing as a bad denim jacket. But, then again, some are better than others. And this one is a really good one. Part of the new fall collection from Levi's Made & Crafted, it's made in Japan using traditional techniques and crafted from ultra-premium Japanese stretch selvedge denim from the renowned Kaihara Mill. The variations in colors and “ghost patches” placed around the jacket give it a cool, lived-in vintage feel. And it will only get better looking as it wears-in and conforms to your body.

This is a two-for-one deal. Yes, this is an oversized unscented paraffin wax candle. The three-wick style is a handsome addition to a coffee or dining table. But it's also housed in a smooth vessel, carved from a solid block of black and gold marble. Which means that after the candle burns down, you can toss this in the freezer and then pop out any frozen wax leftovers. What you're left with is a stylish marble catchall box.
