Just because it's summer, don't think you can't use a good jacket. This one, from French label Officine Generale, is almost a hybrid chore jacket and blazer. Cut from washed Italian cotton-twill dyed an adaptable olive shade, it comfortably molds to your frame to make easy work out of layering. What's more, there are matching pleated trousers, should you be interested in wearing it as relaxed summer suit.

These are a simple sneaker with a mean steak. A collaboration with Taka Hayashi for the Vault by Vans line, they're the kind of shoes that make you do a double take. On closer inspection you'll notice all those cool details—from the tonal grosgrain stripe at the vamp, the folded heel pull tab, to the vintage-inspired rubber lug soles.

We're suckers for a good tote bag. And Save Khaki reimagined the classic work tote with this handsome and deep bag cut from 8.5 oz. micro-sanded twill. It's finished with contrasting denim pieces, including a handy external pocket that's perfect for keys, phones and other EDC items. Cut and sewn in the US, it's just roomy enough and features a not-too-long 13.5" handle drop.
