Simply the coolest cologne, ever. Lynx Bespoke Scent ($182) was developed by Oki-ni, Lynx, and designer Pete Fowler to be the perfect scent for men. Pick out your date and time, and you'll receive a personal consultation (in London, unfortunately for us) with perfumers who will custom-fit a scent just for you. You'll get your fragrance in about a month — in absolutely the best cologne bottle we've ever seen.
So if someone came up to you on the street and told you you'd have to pay money to smell like Jack Black you'd probably laugh in his face — but it's not the Jack Black you're thinking of. Jack Black Signature Black Mark Cologne ($65) features notes of saffron, coriander, and red cedar, and most definitely smells nothing like that stoned guy prancing around in his underwear in "Orange County."
In collaboration with some of the world's best photographers and picture archives, Sonic Editions makes limited, high-quality framed photo prints of some of the greatest musicians, film stars, and cultural icons the world has known. Using the same printing techniques as fine art galleries, each photo is hand printed to order on Fuji crystal archive paper, numbered and certified, and comes encased inside a hand-made solid wooden frame that's ready to hang.
Immortalized on screen by Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski, Vuarnet's The Dude sunglasses will add some laid back vibes to your summer wardrobe. Dubbed model 03, the silhouette was originally launched in 1962 and was inspired by the oversized aviators of US Air Force pilots. The frames are made from a tough shape memory nylon for comfort and have integrated monobloc hinges as well as a removable bridge insert, while the grey polar lenses offer maximum protection against glare whether it's coming from the sun or your lighter. Made in France.

Forget Green and Blue. Polo Black by Ralph Lauren ($65/4.2 oz) is the new king. The modern fragrance is bright, sweet and clean with a hint of fruit. One of the overall smoothest scents to come along in a long time. Plus, the all-black bottle is as sleek as they come.
Sure, anyone can take natural ingredients and mix them up to make smell-good water, but it takes balls to chemically engineer your own scents to create a new fragrance. Using this new technique, Commes des Garçons Odeur 53 ($86) features notes from a wide range of scents, including Sand Dunes, Metal, Oxygen, and Wash Drying in the Wind. Apart from being environmentally friendly and smelling really good, there’s always something to be said for being able to claim you smell like “Metal and Nail Polish.”
Precision and polish collide with Gerber's latest EDC knife. The Fastball is made in Portland, Oregon with a utiliarian Warncliffe steel blade with a light, stone-washed finish and an aircraft-grade aluminum handle. Each knife employs Gerber's B.O.S.S. Tech, where balls of stainless steel leverage a ball-bearing system, for smooth, consistent deployment ever time. The folding knife also has an easy-off liner lock, three-position pocket clip, and the blade measures 3 inches with an overall length of 7.1".
Presented by Gerber.
Based in Brooklyn, New York, graphic designer Scott Reinhard combines vintage maps with elevation data to create stunning pieces of art. Reinhard uses a chromogenic process to create each print, which takes traditional color photography development and integrates 3-dimensional data with paper maps for a result that is so visually appealing, you'll be tempted to reach out and feel what looks like 3D texture. The process brings the maps to life, creating a 2D print that is vibrant and detailed giving you a unique work of art that blends history and modern technology. In addition to the topographic maps, Reinhard creates compelling digitally rendered maps and has even adopted his technique to the surface of the moon.
We don't know about you, but nothing makes us feel more like men than by spraying on some smell good to cover up the fact that we smell like a brewery from the night before. The scent of Burberry Brit "blends juicy green mandarin and freshly cut ginger with wild rose and spicy hints of cedarwood." That sounds good to us — plus, we've always secretly wished we were British, or at least had the accent.
