Who doesn't want their home to smell like a Tyrolean ski chalet? D.S. & Durga is one of our favorite fragrance houses and for the holiday season, they've produced a new “Portable Xmas Tree” candle. Slightly sweet, with a hint of smoke and a tidal wave of freshly-cut evergreen, this candle will fill your room once you light this baby. Once burning, you pick up deeper notes of clove and rich amber. It's nostalgic, warm and even a little sexy. Like a steaming hot tub out in the snow.

Wythe makes hardwearing clothes that feel really, really good when on the body. Maybe it was the time designer Peter Middleton spent working in fabric research for Ralph Lauren, but everything the brand makes feels as good as it looks. Case in point: Their latest corduroy trousers. Cut like your favorite pair of five-pocket pants, they're made from a special, flecked corduroy woven by a renowned Italian mill that has been weaving the fabric since the late 1800s. The two worked together to come up with a way to achieve a donegal effect in a super-soft corduroy to complement your winter wardrobe of sweaters and denim shirts.

Hamilton's latest watch honors a timepiece made for the British Royal Air Force during the 1970s. The size is particularly appealing—period-correct sizing comes in at just 36mm, yet it's anything but dainty. The lugs are integrated directly into the quasi-tonneau (or “barrel” case design and the easy-to-read dial is matte and slightly pebbled. It's also finished with an outer “railroad” minute track with Super-Luminova dot indices and a grey NATO-style strap.

This isn't your average grey sweatshirt. It's got classic details like a triple-stitched crewneck collar and raglan sleeves, but it's cut in a more modern silhouette. The arms are roomy and the overall fit is boxy. The ribbed cuffs have been slimmed down and loosened up, while the bottom hem swaps the ribbed elastic for a notched, slightly uneven hem that hangs more naturally. Oh, and all this for about a quarter of the cost of other comparable sweatshirts. Not bad, right?

The cold weather is officially here. And if you don't have a kettle on your stove (or don't have one that's as good looking as this one), then it's time that you think about getting one. Enamelware has kept outdoorsmen and homeowners well-equipped and well-fed since the 19th century. This vintage-inspired kettle from Barebones is made from a steel core with a speckled enamel finish and finished with walnut wood accents. It's at once rustic yet modern and will serve you well for years to come.
