Designer Patrik Ervell continues to put his personal stamp on COS. One of my favorite designers during the #menswear era of the mid-aughts, he was known for his versatile pieces that were as utilitarian as they were elegant. This popover is the perfect example. The workwear-inspired shirt is cut from a smooth cotton-Tencel fabric with a modern, relaxed fit and finished with a pair of oversized flap pockets at the chest. It also comes in navy blue, but we're partial to this grey-beige colorway. It just feels more Ervell-esque.

How do you improve on a classic? Astorflex makes some of the best desert boots in the business, all crafted by hand in a sixth-generation workshop in Northern Italy. They're comfortable, good looking and incredibly durable—all for a reasonable price, given the quality. Now, they've updated the timeless chukka with a moccasin-stitched toe. The soft suede exterior and natural plantation crepe outsoles remain, but the moc-toe update makes it feel very much right now. Also, with the memory foam insoles covered in vegetable-tanned calf leather, you'll be hard pressed to find a more comfortable pair—especially at this price.

When I ask you to picture “cargo pants” in your head, this is what comes to mind. Rothco is the foremost supplier of military and tactical apparel, so it makes sense that they've perfected the prototypical cargo pant. Cut from a hardwearing cotton-poly blend, the material is smooth, sturdy and built for movement. The oversized pockets are pleated so they lay flat (and won't bunch up), with other authentic details—from adjustable tabs at the waist to ties at the ankle cuffs—make the pants easy to customize for the perfect fit.

What can you do with this credenza? The real question is what can't you do? The piece works well as an entry table, it's perfect for a bar or sideboard in your dining room and, of course, pulls double duty as a media console under a TV or housing your turntable. The reversible sliding doors conceal a storage compartment with adjustable shelves and plenty of convenient cord management slots, and the sturdy, solid hardwood construction is built to last.

You deserve better lube. And frankly, so does your partner. Honestly, wouldn't you feel better pulling this handsome bottle out of your nightstand? But it's what's inside the sleek bottle that really matters. Leo's “performance moisturizer” contains no parabens or glycerin, is condom-safe and suitable for sensitive skin. It dries quickly on your hands (without any mess), but not from where you want it. Sure, it's slippery, but also incredibly smooth and hydrating. In fact, it can actually be used to give a massage as well—melting into the skin and allowing hands to glide frictionlessly over the body. You definitely wouldn't want to try that with your old lube, right?
