These days a pair of wayfarers is pretty dime-a-dozen — though that's not meant to diminish the classic style of a timeless pair of frames. Stand out the next time you want to block the sun's rays with a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarer Leather Sunglasses ($300). Made in the retro silhouette that's been around since 1956, these sunglasses have been updated for a new generation with genuine calf leather frames. Available in black or brown calf leather, with brown or green neophan polarized lenses.
First made in 1953 to celebrate their centennial, the Tissot Heritage Navigator 160th Anniversary Watch ($TBA; available November) has been rebuilt, maintaining its classic appeal while adding in some modern functionality. Made with traveling in mind, it has a rotating bezel with the capitals of 24 countries of the world, letting you easily determine the time in any major city around the globe. Available with either an 18-karat gold or stainless steel case, a sapphire crystal with a non-reflective coating, and a leather band, this watch features swiss-made automatic mechanical movement and water resistance down to 100 feet.

All too often any glove you find that also works with your smartphone ends up looking technical and a bit geeky — but not the Mujjo Leather Crochet Touchscreen Gloves ($100). They give you the best of both worlds, combing the ability to interact with just about every touchscreen out, while still looking sharp. Made from fine Ethiopian lambskin leather, the underside of these gloves gives you the comfort, warmth, and style you expect from a leather glove. The top side, made from Egyptian crocheted cotton, gives you plenty of flexibility, whether you're driving or fumbling in your pocket to take a call. Inside you'll find Mongolian cashmere lining, perfect for keeping away the chill, while still light weight enough to be comfortable.
With a name inspired by the famous Alpine helicopter base used by the Swiss Air Force, you know you can count on the Victorinox Swiss Army Alpnach Watches ($2,500-$3,700) to endure just about anything. And with a stainless steel case coated in black PVD, a triple-coated, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, and water resistance down to ten atmospheres, these watches definitely live up to their name. They feature self-winding swiss mechanical movement, luminous hands and hour markers, a nylon strap with a deployant clasp, and a four-blade-rotor second hand alluding to the Cougar AS 532 helicopter.

In honor of Beck's recent musical release Songreader — a book of sheet music, not an album, meant to be played by fans, not listened to — Warby Parker has released a limited edition pair of frames called the Carmichael. These Beck x Warby Parker Eyeglasses ($95) are available in two colorways and two variations: rootbeer and crystal colors in both eyeglasses and sunglasses. They feature a round lens and a keyhole bridge, lending a style they describe as a cross between bookish and bohemian. As usual, the lenses are made from impact-resistant polycarbonate, while the frames are made from high-quality cellulose acetate. No matter what you choose, they're the perfect glasses to wear when you sit down with your instrument of choice, read, and play.

Light up the slopes on your next nighttime run with the Nike LunarEndor QS Snowboard Boot ($TBA) thanks to the thirty LEDs implanted in each swoosh. They're powered by a built-in lithium ion battery, and controlled by a convenient power button in the boot's cuff, so you can decide when to switch them on and off. The technology doesn't stop at the lights though — they feature Lunarlon foam for a soft ride and improved impact resistance. They also have a customizable flex line system that lets you choose from three levels of stiffness, so you can optimize the ride for the park, the half pipe, or the backcountry. Available mid-December.

The latest in their series of collaborations with fellow Oregon native Nike, the Nike x Poler Vapen Snowboard Boots ($240) give us one more reason to like camo this winter. While meant for the snow, they come in an otherwise autumnal colorway — sporting shades of brown, green, and of course Poler's signature camouflage on the tongue and interior liner. They feature a mid-flex feel best for all around riding, with plenty of insulation to keep your feet warm throughout the season, and a weatherproof exterior to make sure your toes stay nice and dry.
