What's the best way to improve on the classic look of a pair of aviator sunglasses? Wrap it them gold, of course. These Ray-Ban Aviator Solid Gold Sunglasses ($3,200) — an exclusive edition limited to only 1,200 pairs, numbered and engraved — feature frames made entirely from pure 18-karat gold. They come with polarized Neophan Green lenses that produce the most natural vision possible in a pair of sunglasses, creating clarity and comfort without modifying the way you see colors. Each pair ships with a brown leather carrying case worthy of protecting such a unique set of eyewear.
Keep your look on the track old-school, while still giving your feet all the comfort and protection of a modern boot, with these Sparco Classic Racing Shoes ($280). These shoes are made with a full leather upper, giving them a handsome retro look with a comfortable fit. The sole is still made to resist fuel and oil — just like any other FIA-approved shoe — while providing plenty of grip whether you're walking the pits or pushing the pedal down. The only challenge now will be finding a racing suit that still looks the part.
There's no right or wrong. Whatever gets you out of bed and out the door.

Even if your weekend plans involve plenty of time spent walking trails, splitting wood, and lounging around a campfire, you still don't need to abandon everything you know about style and don a pair of clunky, technical boots. These Feit Hiker Boots ($620) have style to spare and handmade artisanal construction that could quite possibly outlast you. Each pair features vegetable-tanned leather available in a range of colorways, including corteccia, nero, burgundy, smog, and natural (the last of which comes lined with shearling wool). They come completely stitched — there's no glue holding on these soles — and are made from a single piece of leather with Goodyear construction and a flexible Vibram Gumlite outsole.
With a name taken from one of the most legendary drives in the world, Italy's Alpine Stelvio Pass, you'd expect a pair of shades made to be worn behind the wheel. And with the Hodinkee x Autodromo Stelvio Sunglasses ($350) that's exactly what you get. Each pair (limited to just 50 numbered units) is handmade from premium amber acetate, tumbled to a polished finish, and fitted with high-quality polarized lenses. They come in a quilted leather case inspired by classic car upholstery with a magnetic clasp made to open one-handed, so you can keep one hand on the wheel at all times.
Let's face it, you probably don't treat your bag as well as you should — whether you're tossing it into the trunk of your car next to a pair of muddy boots, sloshing motor oil all over it in the paddock next to your track car, or cramming it into a tiny overhead compartment. Rather than changing up your lifestyle, you really need a bag that can handle some abuse. The Chrome Blckchrm Collection ($200-$280) features welded waterproof construction, industrial strength velcro, weatherproof Hypalon outer shells, and urethane-coated YKK zippers, so you know they can handle just about anything. Choose from a roll-top duffel bag built to carry all your gear, a go-anywhere roll-top backpack, or a seatbelt buckle messenger that will never let you down.
Just because you're hitting the trail this weekend doesn't mean you need to abandon your sneakerhead ways — especially when you're wearing a pair of Nike Lunar LDV Sneakerboots ($140). While retaining a silhouette similar to your favorite pair of sneakers, these boots feature a mid-height collar giving them better ankle support. A Lunarlon midsole gives them lots of cushioning, while a waffle outsole gives you grip on just about any surface. A cutout leather upper features suede overlays, so your feet stay comfortable without added bulk or reduced durability.
You already do just about everything in your jeans — whether you're dressing them up for your nine-to-five, or you're getting them dirty on a weekend road trip to the country — so you need a pair that can keep up with your lifestyle. Parke Premium Active Denim ($89) uses lightweight raw denim made with high stretch fibers, creating a pair of jeans that is extremely comfortable, flexible, and naturally retains its shape. Each pair is handcrafted in New York, using tailor-quality ten stitches per inch, antique brass tack buttons, vintage washer rivets, single needle detailing, as well as artful details like subway map pocketing and minimalist back pocket embroidery. They're probably the most comfortable pair of jeans you'll never want to take off.

Remind yourself of how far you've traveled — whether it's a couple of timezones or nations away — every time you glance at your wrist with the Kitmen Keung Long Distance Watch ($480). This timepiece, meant as much for the man who appreciates minimalism as the man who gallivants across the globe, features two discrete faces. The first is meant to tell the current time, and is set off in high-contrast black and white. The second is meant to tell the time of wherever you came from (or wherever you're headed), and fades into the background thanks to a subtler gray color scheme. It features two individual three-hand quartz movements, a stainless feel case with a chamfered bezel, and a black Argentinian-made calf leather strap, making it as beautiful as it is simple.
