Wythe Tencel Gabardine Pearl Shirt

I’ve been looking for a cool button-down long-sleeve shirt in a hot minute, and I’ve been particularly interested in one from New York-based brand Wythe. The brand recently teamed up with Mr Porter for its capsule collection with Throwing Fits, and it includes the popular Wythe Tencel shirt that I plan to buy—if it hasn’t sold out yet. I got the shirt from Wythe’s joint release spring/summer collection instead, and I love the western-inspired design and its damn breathability during the hot months. this.


Le Labo Basil hands pomade

Whenever I use this product, I get compliments on how good it smells. Besides making me feel good about how I always smell good, Le Labo’s hand moisturizer is enticing, moisturizing even the smallest pea-sized amount. I actually lost an almost full tube, so whoever finds it, please.


Earlier this year, Dockers released a collection with Transnomadica, which included a pair of khakis that were an exact replica of a pair from 1985. They were a bit too expensive for me. Luckily, Dockers has these Heritage chinos, which have some of the same design cues — like pleats and a tailored, but not-loose fit — for a much lower price. They are also decorated in Tencel, which is the ideal fabric for summer because of its natural cooling and sustainable production.

Lu’u Dan’s ’80s pants that I call the “scroll button”—a piece of clothing so gorgeous that it knocked me out of the hypnosis of endless online shopping. Have a lot of Miami Vice Energy from the pleats and loose fit, these pants were in my cart faster than you can say “Don Johnson”. The airy cotton fabric and versatile neutrals mean they’ve easily achieved wardrobe staple status, befitting the hype IRL.


Eytys . canvas Odessa sneakers

I have a big crush on these big sneakers. They were my first foray into the perennial chunky shoe trend, and I fell in love with them for their quirky shape and durable outer fabric. It’s an odd, neutral shoe that elevates both my fit and—thanks to the two-inch thick sole—me to new heights.


Andersson Bell sweater vest

Andersson Bell satisfied my craving for fall layered pieces with this airy semi-sheer wool vest. It’s super light so I rocked it on a t-shirt without breaking a sweat. I’ve also worn it myself when I’m feeling bolder. I never thought I would use the words “sexy” and “sweater vest” in a sentence but wearing this sans bra makes for some seriously naughty knitwear.

Coqui Coqui Coco Coco eau de parfum

I first smelled this perfume at a store a few years ago, and I ended up buying a bottle after thinking about it ever since. The brand is based in the Yucatán Peninsula, and this scent smells like sunscreen coconut (or last summer’s scent, ERL’s Sunscreen) but also green and floral, I think. make it very sultry!


Pants by artist Sherwin Williams Dickies

I came across a pair of Dickies-branded Sherwin Williams pants recently at a Rockaway beach vintage store, which were picked up right at the waist — tried them on after a day in the sand and they fit perfectly. I’ve had a similar pair in the past and they’re perfect for summer, but my recent vintage boutique kismet reminded me that tailoring can be a miracle.


Gilden Tree Terracotta Pumice Stone

If you’ve also been putting your sandal feet on while commuting back and forth to the beach this summer, the leather on the soles of your shoes could use a little love. This ceramic terracotta tool is easier to use than classic stone and it peels off the rough edges nicely.

Books Works x Intramural tee

I try to avoid buying graphics that have little or no personal meaning to me, a part-time billboard wearer and maker. So an image has to connect with me to some extent if it wants to, like, get it. As an avid jazz fan and a lover of ephemeral culture, this Book Works and Intramural collaboration t-shirt is an instant buy for me.


After binge-watching apartment tour videos on Youtube, a common theme emerged across these stylish venues: Samsung Frame TV. No matter how well designed, I still find the TV to be a big vibe. But the Frame itself isn’t just a minimalist television, it’s a completely unobtrusive piece of technology that looks like any other piece of art on your wall.


Vornado 633DC . air circulation fan

Vornado doesn’t want you to call your product “fan”. Instead, it is a air circulator. While that puzzling level of snobbery would normally make me roll my eyes, the proof is in the light pudding. It’s small, powerful, very quiet, and really gets the air in my room moving rather than simply blowing it into a fixed spot. You can really feel the breeze anywhere in the room no matter where you are in front fanuhh, air circulator or not. Literally the best thing I’ve bought in a while.


Gaetano Pesci . plastic coasters

These plastic coasters, conceived by pioneering interior designer Gaetano Pesci, are a great way to add some character to a home without investing a lot of money. They come in two sets and give any coffee table a playful and textured feel while ensuring your drink doesn’t make any squeaks.

Eckhaus Latta high-waisted straight-leg jeans

Modestly, these pants hold the record for most compliments in a single wear among other things in my wardrobe. I’ve been looking for a pair of Eckhaus-treated denim since one of their first Shibori-dyed releases in 2018 (exactly the last image from their Fall/Winter 2018 show). Why it took me so long to bite the bullet, I can’t answer…but what I know with confidence is that this pair won’t be my last.


Acne Studios brown leather boots

Every year, I’m on the hunt for the perfect summer boots. Criteria? 1) Minimal, but subtle, two inches 2) Brown or supple suede leather 3) Stacked block heel. These tick all the boxes and work perfectly with tights as well as loose pants – a great plus. During the few weeks I owned these puppies, I wore them on various occasions, day and night, and on duty non-stop.


West Elm organic Percale cotton duvet cover & down jacket

After many years of sateen, these flawless panels paved the way for the superiority of proportions. Turns my blanket into a bug-free rattan car to rest on, the duvet cover is thin but soft, and makes getting out of bed in the morning a near-impossible task. Take that as a warning.
