Two years ago Jay Z subtly called our attention to a forthcoming project, saying "new watch alert, Hublots" on Kanye's Otis — now the wait is over, the Shawn Carter x Hublot Classic Fusion Watch ($18,000-$34,000) is here. This limited-edition collaboration comes in two variations: a black ceramic piece limited to 250, and a yellow gold piece limited to 100 (the more costly of the two). Both watches feature a 90-hour power reserve, water resistance down to 50 meters, self-winding movement, and a sapphire crystal. And, they were designed by Mr. Carter himself, so, there's that. [via]
Prepare for the harshness of winter but don't miss out on the comfort of your favorite pair of sneakers with Nike LunarTerra Arktos Boots ($190). These modular boots are made using their Lunarlon midsole to reduce weight while improving comfort and movement. Nike's Vac Tec molding helps keep seams sealed around the tongue, toe, and foxing, while a sealed zipper contributes to waterproofing. Their Flywire and Hyperfuse technologies keep the upper flexible, while the sticky yet hard outsole helps for stability and traction.

Your wrist-wear game could use a boost, and we have just the thing to take it to the next level — the Henry Singer x Bamford Custom Rolex Daytona Watch ($TBA). This heavily-customized Rolex Daytona is the result of a collaboration between Bamford Watch Department (known for their watch personalization services) and Henry Singer (a 75-year-old menswear house). Both have teamed up to bring you a timepiece that features matte black titanium coating, a mechanical self-winding chronograph, a stainless steal base, an oyster case, and an adjustable oyster lock flip bracelet.
Multi-purpose jackets aim to do more than one thing well, but usually end up being one trick ponies. This isn't the case with the Aether Nimbus 3-in-1 Jacket ($825), which was created so that each part could stand alone confidently, regardless of the weather. The fully seam-sealed shell is made from a 3-layer woven-wool fabric with a tricot backer. Hidden snap connectors keep the vest, and the clean design intact when it's worn on its own. Add on the exterior zippered hand-warmer pockets, a zipper garage at the collar, and a zippered interior pocket, and you have a jacket that is not the only multi-purpose, but practically essential to put on before going out.
The Jack Spade x Barbour Hopper Jacket ($800) is as good as it gets when you're looking for versatile autumn outerwear. Made in partnership with Barbour — a name synonymous with waxed cotton jackets — this great-looking jacket will get you through anything fall throws your way. It features waxed cotton construction with nylon reinforcement, a quilted button-out orange vest for extra insulation, and a corduroy club collar. Other details include American-flag themed ventilation eyelets, a buckle-neck strap, a plaid liner, and double-zipper and button closure.
