Now here's a collaboration we're excited about. Boston-based Bodega links up with Japan's famed Beams for a collection of classic Ivy pieces with just a hint of edge. The wide-leg chinos are great, but for us, this sweatshirt is a must-have. Cut from super soft and not-too-heavy cotton fleece in the perfect shade of heather grey, it's been given “the collegiate, phys. ed treatment” with old school block lettering. With slightly dropped shoulders, the fit is relaxed without feeling baggy.

Who says a ring has to be dainty? This ring balances toughness and style for a masculine accessory that adds some intrigue to an otherwise unadorned hand. It's crafted the old fashioned way by 877 Workshop, a German brand that specializes in reinterpreted heirlooms of the past. They use the same techniques and tools like back in the day for an authentic look and feel. Which means this classic signet ring features rugged forging and filing traces for a slightly roughhewn, vintage patinated look. The actual shape of this ring is made with an a salvaged embossing tool for added authenticity.

At this point, it's fair to say that Timex can take a licking and keep on producing the hits. The latest addition to their popular Marlin line offers a streamlined new look, along with a somewhat unusual feature among affordable watches. It's rare to find complications on a starter automatic watch, but this features an automatic Miyota movement with a sub-dial displaying the current hours in 24-hour format. Finished with a stitched leather band (available in three colors), you won't find a more handsome watch under $300.

If you want cool shades, get them from Miles Davis. This seems to be pretty solid advice, right? Garrett Leight California Optical has just launched a new pair of sunglasses with the Miles Davis Estate. The thick frames feel like the perfect shape for right now, but actually take inspiration from the sunglasses Davis wore at the Newport Jazz Festival back in 1958.

It's hard to shop for transitional weather, right? You don't always get much use from light jackets, but that doesn't mean you don't need them. This overshirt from Standard Cloth looks a lot more expensive in person—thanks to the textured slub fabric and generous flap pockets at the chest—and works as both a light jacket or a substantial shirt on its own. Which means you'll likely get more wear out of it than just your typical jacket. Plus, at this price, it basically pays for itself.
