After 75 years, the classic Zippo is finally getting an upgrade. The Zippo Blu Lighter ($33-$59) is a blue flame butane torch lighter that sports a great new profile but retains the trademark flint-wheel. Targeted at cigar smokers, the Blu lighter doesn't emit the odor or aftertaste caused by lighter fluid. A whole new family is available — from the basic brushed chrome to 18-karat gold plated. They're made in the USA and have a lifetime guarantee. As expected, our test unit performed flawlessly and now goes everywhere we do.
Tote your stoges like a mob errand boy with one of these Zero Halliburton Cigar Cases ($300-$500). Available in two sizes and three colors, the cases feature a stacking tray system that holds 30 large cigars and feature a Digital hygrometer and Paradigm Humidification System with anti-fungal sponge. The classic anodized aluminum exterior and rotary combination lock finish things off.
Featuring an elevated bottom cut, the Cuts Crew Curve-Hem Shirt is an everyday essential for the modern man. Its rounded edge was designed with functionality in mind, eliminating bunching around the waist for a clean, tailored fit. The buttery soft texture is the result of a custom-engineered, tri-blend PYCA fabric and each shirt comes pre-shrunk so it's good to go for immediate wear. Keep it simple or layer it up, the Crew Curve-Hem has no limits.

If you're going to smoke, at least do it in style. Designed by Achille Castiglioni, the Alessi Spirale Ashtray ($100) is a classy alternative to your normal butt repository, made from polished steel, and featuring a "spirale" for holding your burning death sticks, or for holding other "burning" items safely above the ashes for later use.
Stoners have long been known for their ingenuity. So, when one especially clever dude got sick of always looking for his lighter, he invented the Solopipe ($33). The tobacco smoking device combines a butane lighter with a high-end stainless steel pipe. Already showing up in the hands of green celebs, the Solopipe features a sliding bowl cover, refillable gas valve, and adjustable flame control.

The logos and symbols that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration has used throughout their history are nearly as iconic as their achievements. This black trucker style mesh cap bears one of their well-known logos, designed in 1975 and nicknamed the "worm." The logo was retired in 1992 and adorns this hat with a gold text embroidered iron-on patch. The 5-panel, high profile snapback cap is lightweight and breathable and adds a nostalgic touch to your casual look.
Since the rise of Castro, Americans have been denied the pleasure of cuban cigars — unless they came into the country beforehand. This box of Hoyo de Monterrey Panetelas ($3125) includes 50 fine cigars dating back to the 1940's that are five inches in length, feature a 35 diameter, and are almost 100% sure to be better than the last Dominican you smoked.
There's nothing like lighting up a fine cigar after a long, successful work week — but there's also nothing quite as uncool as having little bits of cigar in your pockets. Inspired by a case obtained from a collector who emigrated from Cuba, the Morgan Grays Cigar Case ($95) is a classic way to carry up to two stogies. Each case is handmade from fine leather, making sure you're just as good as that Macanudo you're about to light.
