A short-sleeve sweatshirt is the kind of contradictory piece that's often met with confusion or even hatred because of its in-between status. Not a T-shirt, but not quite a full-on sweatshirt, it's a rugged layer that is just different enough to make you look like you know something the other guys don't. This one, from Beams+, is a recent favorite find. The cut-off raglan sleeves give it some toughness and the light cotton-poly blend makes it silky smooth and almost cool to the touch.

The summer equivalent of your go-to track pants that you've been wearing since the fall, these lightweight vintage-inspired shorts feature dual striped satin outseams, a graphic detail that furthers the sporty appeal. Pair them with a polo, a T-shirt or maybe even the cut-off sweatshirt above and you're set for a laidback summer day.

A classic travel bag rendered in badass stealth mode. It's made from resilient Cordura nylon, fully lined in water-resistant coated cotton-twill and has durable webbing straps and waterproof YKK Aquaguard zippers. The roll-top closure allows for maximum cargo space and provides additional protection against the elements, while a light-colored lining aids interior visibility and finding what you need in a hurry.

Consider this your jean jacket alternative for the warmer weather. Cut from a unique 10-ounce waffle weave cotton fabric, it's indigo dyed and washed for a beautiful finish that will wear wonderfully with age. It comes complete with two rounded patch chest pockets, front welt pockets and an interior pocket large enough to stash a bottle of wine—a feature that will come in handy this summer, trust us.

Jason Schneidman, the hairstylist who makes guys like Rob Lowe, Bruno Mars and James Corden look great, has been making his own products for a while. But now, even if you're not a leading man, you can get your hands on them. The paste is our favorite and has a tropical beachy surf wax scent. Just follow what he told us earlier this month and apply to near dry hair for best results.
