Want an expensive-looking field watch without having to drop a lot of cash? This is what you're looking for. This is a recommended starter timepiece, beloved by watch guys because it's well-made, elegant and reliable. The tonal nylon strap complements the dark grey dial, finished with luminescent hands and a day/date display at the 3 o'clock position. The durable stainless steel case has a transparent see-through back to show off the self-winding movement. And while it's definitely stylish, it's anything but fancy—the waterproof watch is ready for any and all summer adventures.

White jeans can be tricky. They can feel a little too perfect and precious, right? A nice compromise is cutting off those jeans and turning them into jorts—if you didn't know, jean shorts are back in a big way. And bonus, they tend to make white denim feel a lot more relaxed. Madewell makes a great pair of cut-offs, crafted from raw, natural and undyed cotton denim. That means you'll wear them in yourself, giving them a more authentic and comfortable feel over the course of the summer.

Do you take your coffee seriously? Then you might already weigh out your freshly-ground beans each morning. But you probably don't have a scale that is smart or this sexy like this one. Following in the footsteps of Fellow's other gadgets, the new Tally scale features a sleek, minimalist design that's been thoughtfully considered for all the needs of a true coffee nerd. For instance, along with the more standard weight and timer modes, there's a new “Brew Assist” setting that aims to take some of the math out of hitting that perfect coffee-to-water ratio.

You probably heard that prep is on its way back. And with it comes the return of the popover. We haven't seen a lot (yet), but Wythe is making one hell of an option for summer. Designer Peter Middleton says the shirt “begs for a pair of sunglasses on the placket and a slice of watermelon in hand.” Cut with a modern, relaxed fit, this will look just as good under your summer suit as it will with some cut-off shorts or a pair of worn-in chinos.

Behold, the first pair of Crocs we've ever endorsed. And the first pair of Crocs I might ever consider leaving the house wearing. As clogs, slides and mules continue to strengthen their grip on modern menswear, it was only a matter of time. But these aren't your average Crocs—the subtle texture mimics the look of genuine, full-grain leather mules and the deep heel cup adds extra comfort and an improved fit. In short, no one will know these are Crocs except your feet, which will immediately appreciate the lightweight, cushy comfort.
