If you don't know AYR, ask a lady in your life. After eight years focused on selling classic womenswear, the brand has just expanded into menswear. Designed by J.Crew and Todd Snyder veteran Brice Pattison, the collection includes a solid lineup of wardrobe staples, from straight-leg jeans and a twill bomber, to cargo pants and a fresh take on a denim shirt. The washed cotton denim is light enough to layer but feels substantial enough to wear as a jacket. Swapping the usual chest pocket for a pair of oversized patch pockets gives it a unique look too.

D.S. & Durga makes some of my all-time favorite candles. The light amber vessels and stylized black and white labels are incredibly sexy, but it's the unique, sophisticated scents—from diesel and leather to electrified asphalt—that really sets them apart. The brand's latest candle, Parquet Leather, is inspired by basketballs and leather sneakers. There are soft hints of rubber and an old maple wood court mixed with box-fresh leather sneakers. It's slightly sweet yet warm, perfect for this time of year.

I love how trippy cardigans have gotten lately. One of the most staid garments in menswear—a favorite of grandpas—has been leveled up with bold colors, audacious patterns and fuzzy textures. And no one's doing this better than Marni. MR PORTER just teamed up with the Italian luxury fashion house for an exclusive capsule collection and the standout piece is definitely this reinterpretation of Marni's famous brushed striped mohair cardigan. The new version has a relaxed silhouette enhanced by dropped shoulders and a shock of electric blue stripes, mellowed with black trim. You want to pet it, right?

Just because we're heading into cooler weather doesn't mean you should be stashing your sunglasses. In fact, you might want to pick up a new pair. Walden's premium shades are manufactured with sustainable materials and designed to be highly versatile. The brand's Passage model takes design inspiration from a pair of 1950s rectangular frames. Crafted from recycled steel and bio-acetate with “green nylon” lenses, they're finished with old school double diamond rivets at the temples. They'll look as good with your knit polos as they will with a proper coat and sweater come Winter.

Body lotions can be tricky. Some are too wet and sticky, making it hard to get dressed after applying. Others don't seem to do enough—leaving you with pesky dry patches. Harry Styles must know this frustration. The singer/actor and burgeoning grooming mogul recently introduced a body oil from his beauty brand, Pleasing. Lightweight and fast-absorbing, it smooths onto post-shower skin and dries quickly, leaving skin feeling quenched and soft. What's more, the oil has a matte finish with the slightest sheen, which if I'm being honest, tends to make muscles look more toned than they really are. Thanks again, Harry.
