You know the saying, “Everything is better in Japan”? Well, that certainly rings true when talking about slippers. Subu specializes in comfy nylon slippers that are soft enough for indoor and durable enough to be worn outdoors. Purpose-built for insulation, they're down filled and feature a raised inner fabric for softness and warmth. The textured rubber soles not only provide ample traction but also prevent static from accumulating—meaning no shocks in dry, indoor air. And because they're machine washable, if you do decide to wear them outside, you'll have your loungy house shoes back after just one spin cycle.

This shirt jacket looks like the perfect vintage score. A tough, blanket-soft workhorse that's built to last, it's Taylor Stitch's first foray into a whole new shirting weight class. Heavyweight wool construction offers subtle structure and not-so-subtle warmth, while the addition of nylon ensures it can handle brutal conditions for years to come. A blanket stitch hem and some handsome stripes add visual nuance, adding to that “wrapped in a blanket” look and feel.

Is it a sweater or a jacket? Does it really matter? Not really, considering that this flower fleece cardigan from Universal Works ticks all the boxes for a grail layering piece. It's got a bold color and flashy graphic pattern. The combed wool fleece has a fuzzy texture and luxurious softness. Plus, the chore jacket-like design comes with a pair of waist pockets, an internal and external chest pocket, and a simple five-button placket to help trap in warmth.

The Tie Bar just unveiled a collaboration with stylist Warren Alfie Baker. An in-demand menswear fixture, he's dressed everyone from Andrew Garfield and Glen Powell, to Patrick Dempsey and Sir Patrick Stewart. He tells us that the inspiration for the seven-piece collection is “rooted in vintage textiles, evoking signature 1960s and '70s style.” Honoring the way cultural icons like Paul McCartney and Mick Jagger “managed to wear their vintage ties with elegance but without looking stuffy.” Our favorite piece? This abstract floral print tie, which is sure to make a splash over the holidays.

One part sculpture, one part lighting, this sconce works any time of day. When it's not lit, you notice the seven-ply maple wood's natural grain and minimalist original artwork. After dark, the sconce is designed to cast a soft glow onto the mounting surface, so it provides an ambient halo of light. Use one as a electric piece of art or flank your bed or sofa with a pair to really make an impact. Plus, it comes complete with a mounting bracket, electrical cord, screws, and drywall anchors all included.
