Let's talk about your skin. In the dead of summer, it can feel a bit abused. West Skincare, a just-launched range of products geared toward active men, is here to help. "I launched West Skincare because I felt like men were getting shortchanged on skin care," founder Matthew Ankey tells us. "I want men to go out, live their life, but then take the correct steps to keep their skin healthy." What we really appreciate about this line is that it's clear that they haven't skimped on quality ingredients. The formulas, which the company says blend science and common sense, are mostly plant-based with potent botanicals that balance and hydrate skin while calming irritation and reducing sensitivity. The lightweight moisturizer, for example, absorbs quickly into skin and dries with a matte finish—just what we're looking for this time of year.

This is the modern bed to go with your modern mattress. Simply coined "The Bed", by Thuma, this minimalist platform bed frame is full of lifestyle-enhancing details designed for how you live while providing premium support for your mattress. Each bed is inherently unique, crafted from natural upcycled wood (no particle board or veneers). Double-strength slats lined with eco-fi felt provide optimum support and breathability while the low-profile "PillowBoard" was engineered for comfort and function. What we appreciate most is the unique yet functional Japanese joinery, which makes the bed naturally noise-minimizing and easy to put together—assembled in just five minutes with two hand-tightened screws—no tools or team needed.

Tracksmith has rethought the idea of sport sunglasses. They don't need to look like ski goggles or the wrap-around Oakleys of the mid '90s. The Boston-based running brand worked with Article One to engineer shades that combine a classic silhouette with modern optical technology and frame innovation to provide lightweight, UV-protective sunglasses that don't budge when you pick up the pace. They're durable, flexible and handsome as hell.

Are you confident enough for these pants? We hope so. We're planning on mustering up the courage to pull on these looser, slightly cropped dropped-crotch pants. Why? Because when we've seen them on a person, that person looked cool as hell. And summer's the perfect time to experiment with a more relaxed silhouette and a DGAF style. Wear these trousers with a simple T-shirt and a pair of loafers or sandals and you'll look like you've just jetted in from a European vacation.

If you can't have a bar cart, you want a really sexy tray. Like this one, from the new collaboration between Crate & Barrel and leather maker Frye. The roomy tray is crafted from handsome grained acacia wood and finished with brass trimmings as well as sturdy handles wrapped in genuine leather. It's a piece that looks at once old fashioned and yet incredibly modern.
