Is it too early to start talking about “spooky season”? Because I'm ready for the horror films, Halloween candy and subtle eerie prints like this one from Saturdays NYC. At first, it just reads like an abstract pattern, but look a little closer and you pick up the oversized entomological print. It's a conversation starter, for sure, but it also looks great worn on its own or layered under a jacket. The shirt is expertly cut in a relaxed Tencel fabric—meaning it's got a great flow and hangs nicely on the body.

Speaking of Fall, here's a new brew to check out. Perhaps you're tempted by the pumpkin spice fever, but too cool to buy into it. Here's your third wave alternative—a seasonal blend of autumnal notes—caramel cream, blackberry jam and spice cake. The blend is roasted in Philadelphia, one of America's oldest (and likely most haunted) cities, and pays homage to the city with a skeleton Benjamin Franklin on the label.

Fall and fire just go together. But you don't need a big backyard to enjoy the benefits of a good fire pit. Solo Stove, makers of a cult-favorite stainless steel smokeless fire pit, recently shrunk down their signature model for a much more portable tabletop version. A stand is included, so no need to worry about where you place it. It burns both traditional firewood and easy wood pellets, plus you've got a choice of several colors—but I'm partial to the classic stainless steel. Use it for s'mores, use it for romantic ambiance, or bring it to your next tailgate. You'll be surprised how often this comes in handy.

Corridor makes some really good cardigans. Some of the best in menswear today, if you ask me. They're cozy, comfortable and often feature out-there patterns that somehow manage to look cool on just about everyone. This optic style is knit from super soft alpaca wool with an overshot pattern that recalls old school TV/film test patterns. Finished with genuine horn buttons, it works just as well over a T-shirt as it does a proper button-down. But one word of caution: these tend to sell out fast, so don't wait for it to get cold before pulling the trigger.

Not ready to dive head-first into the wide pants trend? These are perfect for you then. Based on a vintage pair of Gap khakis from the early '90s, they have a relaxed (but not ultra-wide) fit with a single pleat on each leg. They're cut from a smooth cotton twill and finished with simple welt pockets on the back. The fit is comfortable and the silhouette looks expensive. People will probably think this is an obscure Scandinavian or Japanese label, and not America's most famous mall brand. But because they are the Gap, a promo code good for the next 48 hours means you can get these pants for a little more than twenty bucks.
