This might be the coolest cashmere jacket in the world. Why? Because the cashmere is on the inside. Not the lining, but the filling. Sid Mashburn's new Cashpad outerwear is filled with recycled cashmere fibers that are pressed into a sheet for a super-soft, sustainable alternative to feather or poly fill. It really does the job, too: compared with down, it's equally warm, lighter in weight, and holds it shape better in wet conditions. And it's exactly as soft as you might imagine. The sleek shirt jacket is made in Italy with a featherweight nylon shell and rubber-covered snap buttons, and packs into its own back pocket to form a compact zip pouch.

The flannel shirt is a time-honored menswear staple. A hardy wardrobe workhorse and the very definition of a winter shirt. Something of a sartorial contradiction, the shirts are rugged and durable, and yet soothingly soft and warm at the same time. J.Crew is making a really good one this season, made from a sustainable premium mid-weight cotton. It's cut like a classic workshirt, with two generous buttoned chest pockets and brushed on both sides for a familiar cozy hand feel. Available in over a dozen colors and tartans, this one is our favorite.

This is a footwear silhouette we're seeing more and more of these days. And it's usually from European shoe brands that, while expertly made, come at a pretty high price. G.H. Bass just introduced this Wallace design, which combines supple suede with rich, textured leather along with the classic moc detailing for a really wearable shoe. Sitting atop a chunky lug sole, it's got the look of heritage footwear with a shot of streetwear energy. All for an incredibly reasonable price.

Look, phones are integral to our modern lives. We can do anything and everything on them. But I don't need it to be my alarm clock. Keeping the phone out of the bedroom is never a wrong move. Besides, this handsome dedicated clock, designed by Dieter Rams in the 1980s, looks amazing on a nightstand and wakes you with a soothing crescendo beep. Plus, there's a continuous backlit feature that ensures the clock's face is always lit with a pleasant glow during times of dimness, but automatically turned off when there is an abundance of light. And if an alarm clock isn't your thing, this looks great on a desk as well.

Hardwearing pants for an affordable price—what's not to like? Like Dickie's cooler older cousin, Blacksmith specializes in workwear that is made with intention and integrity. Their field pants are cut in a relaxed fit from a sturdy 100% cotton twill fabric that's been garment dyed and washed for softness. They've got raised seam fatigue pockets along with classic workwear-influenced patch pockets on the back and hips. Honestly, they look and feel like they should cost three times as much.
