Well, we’re only a week away from the official end of summer, but the season is definitely feeling good. It may be muggy a few more times before autumn comes, at least here in the northeast, but we’re looking ahead: big, long jackets, sporty watches, rain boots and seasonal fragrances from Aesop.
Vollebak 100 years hoodie
Presented by Vollebak
Vollebak has spent the last two years creating the third version of its 100-year-old hoodie, and the result is outerwear that can fight every element on earth. The 100 Year Hoodie is made of a three-layer material originally developed for the elite military. Rain, wind, snow or fire, this hoodie will have you covered on your toughest outings. This hoodie lasts over 40 weeks and will last the rest of your life. In addition, with a soft and warm technical fleece it is comfortable to wear and at the same time remains protected. It offers a water-repellent membrane, a fire-resistant outer shell and four front pockets with huge two-way zippers, making it the toughest jacket you’ve ever owned.
Price: $ 495
Hunter Gardener rain boots
These aren’t as big as typical Hunter boots, but work the same way. Plus, they give me “I take care of the garden I started during the pandemic” vibes, which makes them handy for both actual gardening and light rain.
Price: $ 115
Yema Rallygraf Michel Vaillant watch
The newest Meca quartz-Powered Racing Chronograph by the French watch manufacturer Yema is dedicated to the legendary driver Michel Vaillant. He is literally legendary as the main fictional character in a French comic book series that began in 1957. With a motorsport theme from the 1970s and a cool storyline, it might feel like something that would wear the figure but will look great in real, modern life too – and is quite affordable to boot.
price: $ 399
Arvin Goods classic knitted hat
Caps are the best. They tie up unkempt hair, keep your ears warm, and your head from bearing the brunt of a quick, sudden winter wind. This one from Arvin Goods comes in a lovely linen marl that works in winter but looks especially nice in autumn (which we’ll start with in a moment). Use the code GEARPATROL20 to save 20 percent at the checkout.
Price: $ 30 $ 24 (with code) GEARPATROL20)
Private white VC
This is the kind of coat that you invest in now, regret a few weeks later, and then love for the rest of your life. Why? Well it’s expensive. And what is there to love? A lot: a modern oversized fit, the woven cashmere-wool construction, the natural horn buttons, the cotton satin lining, the RiRi zip pockets on the inside and the notched lapel.
Price: $ .600
Zenith Chronomaster Original Online Edition Watch
We’re big fans of almost every version of Zenith’s retro-reissued Chronomaster collection. While many have gotten creative with colors, resulting in very contemporary designs, this example has a more traditional and familiar look to it. The characteristic three-color, overlapping sub-dials are matched to the same colors for the minute / second track around the dial – a first for the brand. This particular model is only available online.
price: $ 8,400
Garbstore x Porter Hour Bag
Belt bag nothing for you? Bag too much? The collaborative Sacoche Hour Bag from Garbstore and Porter combines the best of both, resulting in an all-rounder that has enough room for the things you normally put in your pockets, but not much more. Impossible to weigh down, easy to carry.
Price: $ 250
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch with perpetual calendar
If Audemars Piguet is known for anything besides its iconic Royal Oak sports watch lines, it’s likely its sleek, perpetual calendar watches. Here they are combined in a new configuration with a titanium case and the characteristic waffle-style dial structure in blue. A prestige watch if it just telling the time, the addition of a highly complex manufacture movement from the celebrated brand roughly doubles its price. Elegant as always, all that intricate movement that tracks calendar dates all the way to leap years fits into a case that is 41mm wide and only 9.5mm thick.
price: $ 80,000
Corridor acid plaid
This corridor flannel is made in India by the brand’s partner workshop and is made from heavy cotton in a color they call “Acid Plain – Coastal Lichen”.
Price: $ 185
Alpina Startimer Pilot Quartz Chronograph Big Date watch
With its high-quality Swiss sports watches, Alpina always offers the right price-performance ratio, the latest of which is part of the Startimer pilot’s watch collection: With a quartz movement, it offers thousands of great complications in mechanical movements for well under a year. The new watches have both a chronograph and an outsize date function – the latter refers to an outsize date display supplied by a separate disc for each digit, making the display larger and easier to read.
price: $ 1,084
Vinny’s Le Club Oxblood Polido
Vinny’s new loafer is a versatile collage of materials and references. There is the snaffle bit, which is reminiscent of Gucci’s horse bit, a light Vibram cleat sole and Oxblood leather. These are thicker and less elegant than most other loafers.
Price: $ 285
Bell & Ross BR05 GMT watch
Every brand, it seems, needs a luxury “built-in bracelet” sports watch in their stall, and Bell & Ross’s is the BR05. Instead of the usual aviation and other tool watch themes of the signature square case from Bell & Ross, the BR05 is simply made for the fashionable big city dweller. To do this, add a travel theme and a GMT complication with a fourth hand to keep track of a different time zone in 24 hour format and you have the new BR05 GMT.
price: $ 4,900 +
American Trench Valves Field Jacket
This green ventilation jacket has a DWR coating, which makes it almost as resistant to rain and snow as the waxed version. There are clear references to the military and Maine here, and it’s a lot dressed up too.
Price: $ 549
Berd Vay’e America’s PasTIME sculpture
If you’re a fan of watchmaking, baseball, and the high-end arts – and have a few giants to throw around, we’ve got you covered: Berd Vay’e has teamed up with watch dealer Danny Goldsmith and major league baseball player Ian Happ the Chicago Cubs on a limited sculpture. Berd Vay’e’s approach to artfully hanging watch parts in clear Plexiglas has the shape of a 17-inch baseball bat. There will only be 20 examples available.
price: $ 4,000
Our Lady of Rocco knitted polo
Chef Mario Carbone, famous for Carbone, made his own clothing line. It debuted over GQ this week, and we’re impressed – and I don’t think we’re surprised. The spaghetti sauce spot tickles the right sensory triggers in a typical brain: it looks good, the food is warm, well-done, and the people there are of a certain … celebrity, real or imaginary. Our Lady Rocco, the line, offers unusual hats, sweatsuits, matching cotton sets and polos. We opted for the polo, which is made from merino wool with a waffle stitch.
Price: $ 225
Panerai Luminor Marina Carbotech Blue Night Watch
Like the brand’s many steel watches, which are available in endless variations, Panerai’s range of Carbotech watches made from lightweight carbon material is constantly expanding. This new version measures 44 mm and has the brand’s in-house automatic movement and combines the black case with a blue sunburst dial. Just like the Zenith mentioned above, it is available exclusively online from Panerai.
price: $ 13,900
Aesop Othertopias fragrances
Aesop may be known as a high-end skincare brand, but those who know their way will be fans of its fragrances too. The latest release from the Australian brand in the nasal department is a trio of fragrances called Othertopias. The collection includes the spicy Miraceti, the oceanic Karst and the woody Erémia. Each fragrance is made by Aesop’s long-time fragrance partner Barnabé Fillion and is intended to help you take you to a different olfactory landscape, be it the boat, the shore or the wasteland.
price: $ 195
