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."
If you can't decide between a straight fit or a slim, Ralph Lauren's Varick jeans are a perfect choice. They land right in-between the two fits, with a regular rise, trim leg, and a slight taper from the knee down. They sit below the waist and are trim through the seat and the thigh with a straight leg from the knee down. The Varick arrives faded and is finished with signature graphics like the "Polo Hi-Tech" patch from Ralph Lauren's iconic '90s collection.

A vintage look without decades of wear. That's what the Ralph Lauren Sullivan Slim Jean is bringing to the table. The jeans are the result of combining hand-sanding and slub cotton denim, giving them an authentic worn-in appearance. Their slim fit sits just below the waistline, hugging the seat and thigh for a tailored look while a slight taper around the leg and knee offer added mobility. Each pair is finished with a classic five pocket design and signature metal rivets.

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.”
Onsen's relaxed, minimalist towels were already our go-to, and now we've taken their hue to our preferred end of the spectrum. Made with American-grown Supima cotton, these special edition black towels are made with longer fibers in a weave pattern that provides an exceptionally soft texture that's also fast-drying. But the key to this obsessively designed towel set isn't what Onsen added, but rather what they eliminated. Standard bath towels go through a chemical bathing process so they feel fluffy — at least at first. Instead of short-lived softness that washes away, Onsen builds in softness from the beginning and utilizes no chemical processes. Bypassing these common treatments eliminates the artificial fluff, resulting instead in a naturally plush surface that just gets better and better, making this quite possibly the last towel set you'll need.
Bath Towel: 31" x 57" / Hand Towel: 18" X 30" / Face Towel: 12" x 12"
Timeless automotive design. Rolex wristwatches. The artworks of Andy Warhol. Three subjects that vary wildly, yet elicit similarly passionate responses from those who care about them. Assouline's Impossible Collection series recognizes this, providing a thorough, in-depth look at each topic through insightful interviews, powerful prose, and gorgeous imagery. Each hand-bound tome tips the scales at nearly 20 pounds, arrives in a bespoke presentation case, and measures well over two feet wide when opened — demanding a central spot on your coffee table, if not its own dedicated stand.
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.
