Do you smoke? No need. This vintage-inspired ashtray from Café Leon Dore doesn't require any cigarettes to be useful. Keep one on your desk or entryway as a catch-all for keys and coins. Or place it on top of a stack of books on your coffee table. It's got a retro Rat Pack kind of glamour but when you look closely and see the branding from a modern menswear label, it makes it all the more cool.

Looking for a fresh take on a classic deck short? These super soft and versatile shorts from Jos. A. Bank are cut from a breezy, washed cotton twill and come in four seasonal colorways. Though we're partial to the navy. Tailored with a generous fit and finished with an elastic waist for added comfort, the fabric has a touch of stretch for added movement—ideal for any summer adventure. They've got a 7-inch inseam but can be cuffed if you're ready to show a little more thigh. And if you want something a little dressier, say for the golf course, the brand's “Traveler Motion” tailored shorts should fit the bill.

Summertime calls for some jewelry. You're not wearing much, right? So a few well-chosen pieces of jewelry will elevate even the simplest T-short and shorts. Miansai's new bracelet brings some handcrafted detailing to the classic mariner puff chain, resulting in a modern look that's finished in polished sterling silver. It's got a heft to it, but it's also still understated and dare we say, a little dainty?

Yes, this is usually the time when we buy new canvas Vans. But, these premium suede Authentics are so nice—combining original archival details with luxe materials. Perhaps the most noticeable difference is the cushy and comfortable Sola Foam ADC insoles, the result of years of developing high-rebound footbeds for all-day comfort and durability. The real question is do you want the olive green pair or the inky navy blue colorway?

We're ready for less layers and bold shirts. The pattern on this Chintan Shirt from Kardo was developed by carefully hand-stamping a colorful floral motif onto the fabric using multiple wooden blocks. Made by a single tailor from beginning to end, it's got a relaxed fit to keep you cool on hot days and was hand-finished for an unbeatable quality that only gets better with time and wear.
