“It's not new, but it's perhaps the best ever.” That's how one Valet. staffer put it when he pitched the Filson zipped tote he had just purchased. He chose the natural canvas with vegetable tanned straps and it makes the bag look relaxed yet polished—ready for the office, plane or beach. The abrasion-resistant twill is woven using industrial-strength cotton and the two-way zippers are forged from rustproof brass. Meaning this bag will likely last you a lifetime (and look damn good while doing it).

We're suckers for a well-executed candle. And this new range by Saturdays NYC ticks all the boxes. A beautiful vessel? Check. An intriguing scent that's present but not overpowering? Check. Our favorite is the Santalum Cedrus. Hand-poured by Joya Studio in Brooklyn, it's made from soy wax and the fragrance mixes such spices as nutmeg, cinnamon and clove with hearty sandalwood and dry grass. In short, it smells sexy, spicy and cool.

The quintessential American watchmaker is getting back into domestic production. Timex is based in Middlebury, Connecticut but hasn't produced any timepieces here in the States for decades. But they've just introduced the Documents series, built in the US from mostly American-made parts (the Swiss quartz movement is the only exception). Impact-resistant Gorilla Glass protects the minimalist white dial and the brushed stainless case features a polished top ring for a classically handsome look.

These shoes are a little bit vintage, a little modern. Taking design cues from Nike's Tailwind running shoes of the 1980s, this collaboration with Japanese-based fashion label Undercover updates the model with a futuristic aesthetic. The silhouette features a speckled midsole and extended heel clip with a mix of different materials on the upper, which the brand calls a tribute to Undercover's "beautiful mix of chaos and creativity."

This wallet was made for summer adventures. Olivers worked with accessory brand Pioneer for a wallet design that's as modern as it is rugged. Crafted from their renowned 4-way stretch performance fabric, it's water resistant, moisture-wicking and machine washable. Laser cut and heat welded, it has room for up to eight cards, as well as a few folded bills—everything you need without any of the bulk.
