This is the next best thing to having a vintage car to work on. 3sixteen's garage shirt is a new style for spring that draws inspiration from old-school service station uniforms. They gave it a modern update with a relaxed, boxy fit, a covered placket and two large chest pockets finished with flaps. It's sewn in a heavy, high thread count, densely woven cotton and finished with antiqued pewter buttons. The mossy green color looks great with jeans, washed chinos or your navy nylon shorts.

Can you make a fruit bowl sexy? Molly Ban, cookbook author and YouTube's favorite chef, sure as hell wants to try. She recently debuted a capsule collection of kitchenware with Crate & Barrel and the items are as wild and colorful as her cooking videos. There's a range of pieces, but one of the standouts is this big wooden bowl. Crafted from solid ash, the bowl showcases a stepped, stave-constructed design that highlights the wood's varying grain patterns and tones.

Can one pair of pants do it all? Probably not, but damn do these come close. First of all, they're cut from an incredibly soft twill fabric produced from “high-density woven organic cotton without any aligning yarn.” We're not sure what that means either, but the end result is a cool, textural feel that feels at once polished yet relaxed. That same duality is found in the tailoring, where classic pleats merge with modern elastic waist comfort. The oversized pockets add even more modernity and utility—which is to say, you'll get a lot of wear out of these.

How seriously do you take your coffee? Because if you're a casual drinker, you can stop reading and skip to the next item. But if you truly love your brew, you'll want to know about Balmuda's new coffee machine. The Japanese brand, which has a cult following thanks to their legendary toaster oven, developed a brewer that brings the cafe experience to your home by automating proper pour-over technology. Optimal flavors are extracted from the grounds and then a separate finishing water is added via a second spout. This new technique achieves both a strong flavor and a clear aftertaste. There's even a setting for the perfect iced coffee, just in time for summer.

Another week, another great T-shirt option. J.Crew keeps tinkering with old archival designs and this one, based on a popular pocket tee style, ticks all of our boxes. The relaxed fit is on point, the pocket is neither too big nor too small and the fabric is hemp-cotton blend that has a subtle textured knit feel. Plus, it's breathable and naturally antimicrobial so it's perfect for this time of year. And since the shirt is garment-dyed, the fabric will get softer and develop a patina with each wear and wash.
