The Bear is back, baby! You've already streamed the entire third season, I know, so if you're missing it, take comfort in this collaboration. J.Crew partnered with the show for a collaboration focused not on the chefs, but on the show's two most reliable sources of comic relief, a.k.a. “the Faks”, played by Matty Matheson and Ricky Staffierni. The workwear-inspired range includes a tee, trucker hat, canvas jacket and this 14 oz. sweatshirt.

These aren't your average fatigue pants. These military-inspired pants from G-Star RAW are cut from a dobby weave cotton with a subtle texture, they're substantial without feeling overly heavy. They have oversized patch pockets on the front and subtle slash pockets on the back. And are finished with shaped darts for a comfortable, tailored fit. They're a light and easy way to work in a rugged look for the dog days of summer. What's more, they (along with a slew of other seasonal styles) are currently on sale. So pick up a pair while they still have sizes available.

These are the prototypical shorts for Summer 2024. A little fuller and a little longer, with the addition of pleats. The shorts are cut from a breezy cotton-linen blend, so they're nice and breathable with natural woven texture. Available in three different shades, they're easy to dress up and down—and as an added bonus, they're now marked down to almost half off.

Did you know that Nalgene—the GOAT, the OG, the mother of all reusable water bottles—turned 75 this year? To celebrate the milestone anniversary the brand released some limited-edition designs to commemorate the durable, leakproof and lightweight bottles. Featuring the brand's very first Mountain Lion logo, the goods are available exclusively through Nalgene, and 20% of proceeds will go towards the Nalgene Water Fund, which supports communities struggling with access to clean water.

We've always been proponents of a good mall brand suit. It's affordable and reliable. And the latest entry comes from Abercrombie & Fitch. The Collins fit suit is a classic version with a modern edge. The fabric is a light poly-blend that drapes nicely against the body and the fit is slightly relaxed for a boxy silhouette that feels right with a dress shirt or knit polo underneath. And with it ringing in under $225, you can spend the cash to have it tailored for a perfect fit.
