These shorts have a lot going on. But that's the point. Saturdays calls it a “hybrid of a lounge short and a trouser short,” combining “a sense of ease and a polished fabrication.” And we like that explanation. We'd also say they're just badass shorts with a cool paisley pattern and a silky, flowing Tencel-cotton blend fabric that looks good with a myriad of shirt and shoe options.

A jacket? In this climate?! Sure, we know that you might not regularly need outerwear in the middle of summer, but a breathable layer like this shirt jacket can really elevate a look without having you overheat. Crafted from the highest-quality European flax, the linen is strong yet soft, hypoallergenic and so lightweight, you barely notice you're wearing it. But you'll appreciate the way it makes you look while also taking advantage of the storage—two functional front pockets and one handy interior left chest pocket for your phone.

This leather box is just damn cool. That's it. But really, Billykirk took their premium full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather and then cut and stitched it into this handsome box, available in four different shades. Hand-stitched, burnished and edged, the boxes are an ideal spot for mementos and keepsakes, tucked into a bookcase or let this be where you round up your work essentials on your desk. Of course, it would also look amazing on a coffee table or entryway. And bonus, you can have them embossed with a monogram (for yourself or a gift).

Some knit polos can get a bit graphic. We understand, and thankfully, so does the team at Taylor Stitch. They crafted their take on the mid-century look with a reverse seed stitch construction, accented with bands of Milano stitch on the sleeves and center placket. This not only offers a unique texture that feels great on your skin, but it's also a unique way to craft a tonal style that's more refined and subtle than those other loud shirts.

Bucket hats are back in a big way, baby. And this one, from Universal Works, has the slouchy fit and lightweight feel you want from an old school topper. Made from indigo-dyed cotton chambray twill, it's perfect for sunny summer days or throwing over wet hair after swimming. Finished with a reinforced hat band for durability, it's also got embroidered eyelets for added ventilation.
