The Zegna Icon Jacket ($1,300) provides a new take on so-called wearable tech, giving you completely-wireless control over your digital device without ever reaching into your pocket. A discreet bluetooth-enabled joystick control pad on the cuff of the jacket lets you answer calls, control music, and more, while a convenient earbud holder keeps your headphones within easy reach. Available in blue, red, or black, this jacket also looks a lot better than most of the gadgets out there meant to place on your body. It's completely waterproof, has taped seams, and three layers of insulation for comfort in a range of weather scenarios.
Make sure your shoe game is ready for fall with a pair (or two) of these Poler x Nike Braata Sneakers ($70). In a partnership celebrating the two companies' Portland heritage, these sneakers come in the Nike Braata skateboarding silhouette, available in three patterns of Poler Outdoor Stuff camouflage. Choose from their classic camo, night camo, or — our fall favorite — autumn camo. But, just like the leaves on the trees, these shoes will be gone quickly. Don't say we didn't warn you.
Make the best of your sick day and cover some ground. Just don't ride anywhere close to work.

The El Solitario Bonneville Selvedge Denim Coverall ($670) gives you a stylish, well-made workwear option that will last for years of hard, dirty work.

Get the fit of a great running shoe with the comfort and style of a casual sneaker with Nike Air Pegasus 83/30 ($100). This classically-inspired shoe comes in a range of colorways accented with a reflective stripe, ideal for visibility at night. The mesh upper features stitch-less construction for a comfortable fit that won't leave you feeling the seams. That mesh is also great for ventilation, so your feet won't get too hot after a long day. A phylon midsole provides plenty of support, while flexible grooves in the sole bend with the natural motion of your foot.
Kick and push your way to the beach a few more times before the summer sun disappears.

With Under Armour Speedform Running Shoes ($120) you'll experience a level of comfort and fit that you've never had with another pair of running shoes. They're designed to have a completely-seamless interior, from the one-piece heel cup, to the ultrasonically welded components, and the form-fitting construction. And of course they feature the same moisture-wicking technology that you expect from Under Armour, thanks to chafe-free 4D Foam. With a perforated upper for ventilation and an almost-unnoticeable six ounce weight, you'll be able to run for miles without so much as thinking of your shoes.
While wearable devices may still feel like the stuff of science fiction, they are very much a reality — as evidenced by the Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch ($300). This watch does so much more than simply tell time, thanks to its ability to pair with any Samsung Galaxy device. For example, it will discreetly notify you of a new text message, let you preview its contents, and then instantly open it on your larger device. Other powerful features include the ability to interact with music, letting you browse, pause, play, skip, or adjust volume. A built-in microphone, bluetooth connectivity, a video and still camera, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a pedometer further extend the usefulness of this handy watch. Available in October.
Control freaks, take notice — the Urwerk EMC Watch ($TBA) gives you more authority over the functionality of your timepiece than any watch before it. With only the touch of a button, you can access the timing rate of your watch, allowing you to fine-tune the way it tells time. Because conditions like position, temperature, and shock affect the timing regularity of your watch, having this information gives you the control you need to adjust your timing rate to suit any situation. Made from titanium and steel, with a satin finish and sapphire crystal, this watch is made to last — while a power reserve of 80 hours will keep it going for days.
Look good — wherever you're stationed.

While it isn't a blazer in the truest sense — you're not going to be wearing it to formal business meetings anytime soon — the Levi's Packable Blazer ($180) can certainly serve as the outer layer of an above-casual outfit in a pinch. Made from quilted nylon, this jacket is designed for travel, making it easy to stuff into a bag, backpack, or rucksack, and also features long sleeves, a regular fit, and side-flap pockets that make it just that much dressier than a standard rain jacket or hoodie. Available in a versatile liquorice colorway that should look good with nearly anything.
Float into fall with some new threads and a new outlook.
