For a simple, monochromatic sneaker, these are sure to get you some attention. Initially designed as a record-breaking running sneaker, this tweaked street version owe their unique silhouette to the plush React cushioning, adding some cool contours and coming to a point just behind your heel. The lust-worthy Pure White colorway that dropped over the weekend is ideal for summer.

The latest from Los Angeles based menswear label, Buck Mason, is something of an illusion. This lightweight long-sleeve shirt feels like a tee, but wears like a perfectly worn-in sweatshirt. Made in the US, the shirts are crafted from an exclusive two-layer fabric that has 100% cotton slub on the outside, and super-soft 60% cotton / 40% rayon micro-jersey on the inside, giving the shirts a touch of warmth without weight.

The negroni is one of our go-to cocktails, especially in the summer. They're easy to whip up, but these new bottled offerings, from Brooklyn spirits company St. Agrestis, are even easier. They're made using their new aperitif, Inferno Bitter, along with local Greenhook gin and sweet vermouth, and ring in at 48 proof. Toss 'em into the cooler and kick them back, no ice, glass or orange twist required.

Want a subtle flash of Off-White's signature humor every time you pickup a check? This slim card holder, cut from supple leather with four slots for your most-used cards, features the label's signature quoted print. Made in Italy, it's crafted from smooth calfskin leather and considering the quality (and the fact that the label is so hot right now), the price is pretty reasonable.

We can definitely understand the need for inexpensive sunglasses. They're too easy to break or lose. But that's not to say you don't want shades that are good looking and do a solid job of protecting your eyes. We were recently introduced to Privé Revaux, a line of affordable sunglasses (with a hearty celebrity following) that boast durable frames, polarized lenses and a clever collapsable trifold case for storage.
