As we head into fall, it's time to start thinking about your jacket arsenal. And if you want to find some deals, it's better to buy early before the good stuff sells out. And menswear insiders are currently buzzing about this Barbour dupe from UNIQLO. Cut in a boxy fit from a crisp all-weather cotton and finished with a corduroy collar and a checked lining, it's definitely got all the hallmarks of the famed British heritage label. Except it's a little more understated and modern ... plus, it costs less than 80 bucks, rather than around $400.

Whatever you're drinking, it's going to taste better in a nice glass. I'm not sure how the science works out, but I know this to be true. Heading into fall (otherwise known as “brown spirit season”), it's the perfect time to invest in some quality rocks glasses. Riedel has been crafting fine glassware for decades, and drinks experts agree that the hype around the brand is warranted. These glasses have a sophisticated ribbed design and a substantial feel in the hand, making them a real pleasure to drink from.

First the chinos, now the oxford shirt. Bigger is definitely better, according to J.Crew's creative director Brendon Babenzien. After the runaway success of their giant chinos, the brand is interdicting its most relaxed shirt yet. Inspired by vintage oxfords from J.Crew's archives, they cut this refreshed style from traditional-weight, 5.5-ounce cotton oxford (which has a bit more structure than their popular broken-in oxfords). Available in five different colorways, you'll find true-to-original details like double-pleated cuffs and a slightly elongated collar for an authentic feel and the perfectly-arched collar roll.

Soap on a rope isn't just a gimmick. By letting your soap hang, it dries quicker and lasts longer. And you want this one to stick around. Made from 100% natural, sustainably sourced plant ingredients, it's got activated charcoal to clarify your skin while tea tree and eucalyptus essential oils will soothe and keep any breakouts at bay—all while imbuing a refreshing afterglow. Avocado and mango seed butter further hydrate and soften skin, plus it smells really, really good. What more can you ask for?

This is a little lamp with a big impact. The solid industrial-inspired concrete base is around four inches tall, but the classic grey fabric drum shade adds another five inches. Still, it's perfect for adding a layer of unexpected texture and a pocket of warm light to compact areas of your home—be it a kitchen counter, bookshelf or even a nightstand or entry table.
