Inspired by Apple's ever-present aluminum power buttons, the iCufflinks ($130) are ready to add some Cupertino-style flair to your formal attire. These "open source" cufflinks are machined from 6 series aluminum, and thanks to a battery that screws inside the housing — along with a tiny circuit board and LED — they pulsate gently, subtly letting those around you know that not only do you mean business, but you might also be a robot.

Oh hell yes. Blending perfectly with the beverage's wild west image, the Whiskey Holster ($39) keeps your favorite bourbon right where it should be: on your belt, preferably right next to your trusty six-shooter. Made from high-quality vegetable-tanned leather, it's the perfect size to hold a 200mL whiskey bottle, and even offers up a tiny window on the front to let your label show through. Al Swearengen would be proud.
There aren't many shoes that are versatile enough for a formal occasion but also look great with a pair of jeans. But The Newton is up for both occasions and plenty in-between. Each pair is Goodyear welted for flexibility and maximum durability and they're lined with leather for increased breathability, and have a comfortable footbed and a leather outsole that's built to stand the test of time. And even when that outsole wears thin, they can be easily re-soled by a repair service -- extending the life of your favorite pair. Available in black and oak leather.

The Blundstone 500 Series was originally created over 50 years ago, but its classic styling and sturdy construction have ensured that its legacy is alive and well today. The timeless Chelsea boot design is constructed with breathable, waterproof-oiled leather and a hefty, slip-resistant outsole that works rain or shine. Although, what truly makes these boots stand out from the pack is their comfort. The combination of a cushioned midsole, a shock-absorbing footbed, while being lightweight, allows for all-day wear.

Add a bit of Backdraft-style intrigue to your ensemble with the Fire Hose Belt ($38). Handmade from previously-used fire hoses, each one is unique, and they often come with distress marks, providing just a hint that your belt has probably seen more action than you have.
As you might have guessed, ties weren't always churned out by huge manufacturing equipment — they were made on a single needle sewing machine, by a single operator. Return to this time with J.A. Christensen Maker Ties ($90). Created with these classics in mind, these ties are cut across the fabric's width to give them a unique look, and feature square backs, vintage denim construction, a length of 55 inches, and width of three inches — not too short, not too skinny, but just right for pairing with a modern suit and shirt.
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.
Originally launched as a modification shop for Rolex hunting watches — hence the name — Pro Hunter now offers a full range of specialized, sought-after sport watches from the Geneva-based firm.

Specifically, we're offering Stealth black-hued versions of the GMT-Master II, Daytona, Submariner Date, and Submariner Military. All Pro Hunter Rolex watches are accompanied by a 5 year warranty and exceptional service directly from Pro Hunter.

Once standard issue for soldiers in the Swedish army — Who knew Sweden even had an army? — the Swedish Army Belt ($75) is perfect for daily wear. Made from natural tan leather, these unassuming accessories feature reinforced clasps, slight stripes near the top and bottom, and the ability to gain a gorgeous patina over time, as seen in the pic above, which shows the same belt after 10 years of use.
