Comfort Colors Heavyweight Pocket Tee

Does exactly what it says on the tin: the comfiest T-shirt you’ll ever wear, available in a wide range of spectacular garment-dyed colors.

Aēsop Hwyl Eau de Parfum

Aēsop’s Hwyl fragrance bottles the hallmarks of what the brand does best. Its subtle blast of cypress, frankincense, and vetiver starts smoky and finishes spicy, all offset by a healthy disdain for branded hoopla and inscrutable ingredients.

Giorgio Armani Double-Pleat Virgin Wool Pants

The godfather of Italian fashion cut these pooling, double-pleated trousers with all the louche ease of his 1980s heyday.

Converse Chuck 70 Sneakers

The quintessential version of the quintessential sneaker, with design specs—like beefier canvas uppers and thicker midsoles—taken from 1970s Chuck Taylors.

Prada Brushed-Leather Derby Shoes

When you want to impress your friends, you tell them you’re really into Prada. When you want to send your friends scurrying home to their Docs? You buy a pair of Prada’s brushed-leather derby shoes, a no-frills silhouette that telegraphs your blue-chip taste—and hints at a closet full of grails—without saying a word.

Beams Plus Cotton-Linen Cardigan

Every season, Japan’s Beams Plus drops a handful of preppy, grandpa-esque cardigans that, counterintuitively, are the single sickest way to supercharge your illest vintage tees and beat-to-hell oxford shirts.

Levi’s Type I Trucker Jacket

Based on a WW II–era archival model, this brawny denim jacket possesses a whole lot more juice than your average thrift-store trucker.

Just for GQ readers, we scored a slew of discounts on the inaugural Recommends All-Stars class, including Levi's' unbeatable trucker. Use code LEVIGQ for $10 off all trucker jackets—excluding sherpa and collections—from now until midnight on November 4th.

Issey Miyake Homme Plissé Pleated Pants

Rarely will you find a true-blue designer grail as downright joyful as these trousers fashioned from Issey Miyake’s iconic pleated polyester, which look like graceful dress pants but feel like airy pajama bottoms.

J. Hannah Mini Polish Set

J. Hannah, the ethically minded jewelry imprint, doesn’t make nail polish for guys—it makes nail polish for anyone whose digits desperately need a coat of artful varnish. Grab a five-pack and treat yourself to a vibey night in.

American Trench Socks

The old-school good looks of the gym socks you wore in grade school, spiffed up with a modern cushioned footbed and fresh color palettes.

Master & Dynamic MW75 Headphones

Audiophile-approved wireless cans that look as good as they sound, thanks to striking aluminum hardware and lush lambskin accents.

Industry of All Nations Alpaca Beanie

Everything you could ask for in a beanie: impossibly soft, incomparably warm, and just the right balance of structure and slouch.

Just for GQ readers, we scored a slew of discounts on the inaugural Recommends All-Stars class, including Industry of All Nation's hero product. Use code GQ15 for 15% off the brand's alpaca beanie, from now until midnight on November 2nd—provided you're one of the first 100 customers.

Stòffa U-Neck Cashmere Vest

Always considered the sweater vest a touch too twee for your liking? The flowy tailoring experts at Stòffa would like a word. Thanks to its distinct U-neck collar, this relaxed cashmere knit looks killer with a rumpled striped button-up—and even better with a white tee and gold chain.

CDLP Boxer Briefs

Next time you decide to excise your entire underwear drawer and start over from scratch, these are the absurdly comfortable, supremely sexy skivvies to stock up on in bulk.

Just for GQ readers, we scored a slew of discounts on the inaugural Recommends All-Stars class, including CDLP's hero product. Use code GQ15 for 15% off all full-price first orders from now until midnight on November 2nd

Husbands Wide-Collar Shirt

The most compelling argument we’ve seen in favor of dressing up right now comes straight from Paris, where Husbands outfits its worldly clientele in swaggering dress shirts that look rad unbuttoned to the navel—and even groovier with a tie.

John Smedley Knit Polo Shirt

A knit polo so dashing and refined, it’s been worn by multiple Bonds (Connery and Craig, namely).

Arc’teryx Beta Jacket

Real-deal mountaineers rely on Arc’teryx’s slick waterproof shells to endure the harshest of high-altitude conditions—which means they’ll perform like a dream on your drizzly morning commute.

Saint Laurent Single-Breasted Tuxedo

When Yves Saint Laurent’s sexed-up tuxedo sashayed down the runway in the ’60s, it catalyzed a shift in the fashion psyche the industry is still reckoning with. Anthony Vaccarello’s razor-sharp riff proves the French maison still has a few tricks up its silk-lined sleeve.

The world’s greatest sweatshirt, period. Crafted in a decades-old Pennsylvania factory from the heaviest of heavyweight fleece, it’ll age and soften over time as beautifully as your best pair of jeans.

Todd Snyder Wythe Suit

Todd Snyder has a knack for predicting what fellas want long before they’re able to articulate it themselves. So when the ex-J.Crew honcho proposes a new tailoring silhouette inspired by the excesses of the ’80s—low-slung double-breasted jacket, voluminous pleated trousers—it’s futile to resist. Break the news to your slim suits gently.

Just for GQ readers, we scored a slew of discounts on the inaugural Recommends All-Stars class, including Todd Snyder's Wythe suit. Use code GQSUITING15 for 15% off the brand's entire selection of suiting (exclusions apply) from now until midnight on November 2nd.

Adidas x Wales Bonner Samba Sneakers

Grace Wales Bonner’s vibrant interpretations of the Adidas Samba are lusted after by hard-boiled sneakerheads and high-fashion disciples alike. After a few years of her ongoing link-up with the Three Stripes, her sneakers have transcended the fickle, fleeting nature of internet hype; without her fuel, the Samba resurgence might’ve never taken flight.

Supreme Stone-Washed Slim Jean

Supreme’s quietest hit isn’t a wacky accessory or a cheekily branded tchotchke—it’s the streetwear juggernaut’s all-American jeans. The brand makes baggier versions for the punky skate rats queued outside its stores, but its slim, dark denim just feels a touch cooler.

Trudon Cire Classic Candle

For over three centuries, Trudon’s exquisite candles have lined corridors of power across the globe. Its most classic formula—a mix of bergamot, honey, and cinnamon—might not transform your 650 square feet into a royal compound, but it’ll go a long way in making your pad feel like a palace.

Second/Layer Rider Leather Jacket

Don’t let this Italian-made calfskin jacket fool you: Second/Layer’s slouchy zip-up blouson oozes pure LA bluster. This is exactly how a leather jacket should fit right now—and how you’ll want one to fit 10 years from now.

Cartier Tank Louis Watch

The legendary dress watch of choice for everyone from Clark Gable and Muhammad Ali to Princess Diana and Tyler, the Creator. It’s a lineage well worth the price of admission.

Patagonia Retro-X Fleece Jacket

You could pay an extortionate premium for a vintage version of Patagonia’s definitive fleece jackets, or you could just go straight to the source, where the first name in eco-conscious outdoor gear makes ’em exactly like they used to.

Ursa Major Base Layer Deodorant

Natural deodorants get a bad rap, but Ursa Major’s BO-blocking powerhouse gives the category a good name. There’s no weird scent, no baking soda, no aluminum, and no granola-adjacent ingredients to irritate your pits.

Just for GQ readers, we scored a slew of discounts on the inaugural Recommends All-Stars class, including Ursa Major's hero product. Use code GQ10 for 10% off all full-price items on the Ursa Major site, from now until midnight on November 2nd.

Bottega Veneta Large Andiamo Bag

The sumptuous woven leather and flashy metal knot lend this Bottega Veneta tote the buzzy curb appeal of an It bag. The spacious interior, meanwhile—big enough to house a laptop and a change of clothes—makes it as practical as your workaday gym bag.

Bather Swim Trunks

These trunks are cut from crisp quick-dry nylon that’ll excel at the beach or pool, but the just-right 5.5-inch inseam, deep side pockets, and endless array of fetching colors and prints mean you’ll want to wear ’em just about everywhere else too.

Just for GQ readers, we scored a slew of discounts on the inaugural Recommends All-Stars class, including Bather's hero product. Use code GQALLSTARS for 15% off the entire site from now until midnight on November 2nd

Asics Gel-Kayano 14 Shoes

With the help of designer Kiko Kostadinov and a slew of other high-wattage collaborators, the Asics Gel-Kayano 14—a color-drenched, mesh-wrapped performance runner introduced in the late 2000s—has become the unlikely sneaker of the moment. Lace up a pair to crush your morning miles or hit the bodega down the street.

Alex Mill “Mill” Shirt

The kind of slightly rumpled, always attractive button-up you can—and should!—wear every day of the week.

Just for GQ readers, we scored a slew of discounts on the inaugural Recommends All-Stars class, including Alex Mill's hero product. Use code GQAM15 for 15% off all of Alex Mill's shirting, from now until midnight on November 2nd.

Fear of God Wool Overcoat

There’s maybe no better feeling on earth than cocooning yourself in a big, swaddly topcoat on a blustery fall day. And there’s no topcoat bigger and swaddlier than Fear of God’s, tailored from heavy Italian melton wool with swooping, strong-shouldered contours.

Proraso Shaving Cream

Remember watching your dad shave before work? Chances are he lathered up with Proraso’s classic shaving cream, and chances are the features that endeared him—cooling menthol, soothing eucalyptus oil, charming old-school vibe—will tickle your nostalgia bone too.

Lemaire Belted Curve-Leg Jeans

The fastest way to transform blue jeans into a left-of-center fashion flex? Twist the side seams ever so slightly inward. If the devil is in the details, Lemaire’s subtly curved denim is damn-near satanic.

Prounis Paperlink Necklace

Jean Prounis’s jewelry merges old-world craftsmanship with a new-age appreciation for simple elegance. In practice, that dichotomy yields future heirlooms like this, a paper clip–esque necklace in 22-karat gold using goldsmithing techniques all but forgotten by her counterparts.

Ten Thousand Interval Short

The platonic ideal of a gym short: sleek, streamlined, and brimming with cutting-edge features like bonded hems and a bunch-proof waistband.

Thom Browne Cotton Oxford Shirt

To make the workhorse oxford shirt feel as revolutionary as his shrunken wool suits, Thom Browne exploded the collar to ’80s-banker proportions and kitted out the tail with his signature name tag detail.

Blundstone 587 Chelsea Boots

When faced with serious muck—be it a downpour, slushy winter sidewalks, or a swampy music-festival field—you’ll want a pair of these rugged, Australian ranch boots in the mix to yank on at a moment’s notice ($230).

Birkenstock Boston Sandals

Sharp enough to pair with all the wildest clothes in your closet, laid-back enough to slip on to walk the dog in your gnarliest sweats.

Carhartt WIP Single Knee Short

Stout canvas shorts that can handle anything the warmer months throw your way—from camping trips to moving days—and will come out looking all the better for it.

Polo Ralph Lauren RL67 Jacket

Consider this tweedy, professorial sport coat the ultimate five-tool player: It’ll look great with a tie at a wedding, sure, but it’s even better when you need to level up a polo and chinos for a lunch meeting or with a tee and jeans on a third date.

Sonos Era 300 Speaker

The next time Ticketmaster fails you, don’t panic: Cue a playlist on Sonos’s immersive home speaker, and let the crisp spatial audio drown out the pings of your friends’ texts from the show.

Begg x Co Arran Cashmere Scarf

When you need a scarf that’s a big fit in and of itself, turn to the cashmere whisperers at Begg x Co, who source their ultra-luxe fibers from Inner Mongolia, finish them by hand in Scotland, and ship the results wherever exposed necks spell disaster for chilly tastemakers.

Les Tien Heavyweight Sweatpants

LA-based Les Tien specializes in sweatpants of the highest order, cut with a tailor’s eye for precision and an Angeleno’s appreciation for pared-back ease. Think of them as supremely cozy capital-T trousers, and style ’em accordingly.

Burberry Camden Long Car Coat

Looking for a trench coat tough enough to handle a sudden English downpour, but elegant enough to hold its own at tea? Burberry’s venerable gabardine slickers still set the standard. Ditch the belt and epaulets and you’re left with a trench so clean you could eat a crumpet off its iconic plaid lining.

Rimowa Cabin Carry-On

It’s a jet-set status symbol for a reason: No other luggage possesses Rimowa’s precise blend of stark aesthetic charm and rough-and-tumble durability.

J.Crew Giant-Fit Corduroy Pants

When J.Crew tapped Noah founder Brendon Babenzien to lead a reboot of its men’s division, he began by blowing up the proportions of the onetime slim-fit-championing chain’s hero trousers. The result, a tasteful wide-leg throwback to J.Crew’s ’90s golden age, wound up becoming the brand’s first smash hit in years—and absolutely deserves a spot in your rotation.

Persol Square-Frame Sunglasses

Steve McQueen’s rounded Persol shades are legendary, but these squared-off frames from the age-old Italian specs operation are a fresh alternative to the cool-guy classic.

Gucci 1953 Horsebit Loafer

Wall Street big shots, European trustafarians, and impossibly well-heeled retirees all share a penchant for Gucci’s horsebit loafers, the rare icon actually worthy of the honorific. Classic black is forever cool, but a two-tone version helps that sumptuous leather pop.

Anglepoise Type 75 Paul Smith Mini Desk Lamp

Leave it to Sir Paul Smith, Britain’s madcap color experimentalist, to enliven Anglepoise’s no-frills desk lamp with a shock of Mondrian cool.

Dr. Bronner’s Eucalyptus Pure-Castile Liquid Soap

It’s easy to feel skeptical about Dr. Bronner’s jack-of-all-trades eucalyptus soap, an 18-use salve just as suited for your hands and face as for your body and hair. If it sounds too good to be true, get a lather going and circle back here: Soon enough, it’ll convert you too.

John Lobb Freddi Chelsea Boots

Chelsea boots can conjure the Beatles at their most buttoned-up, but those John Lobb makes in its Northampton, UK, factory, where a dream team of cobblers spends hours refining every detail to the nth degree, channel Jagger at his rock-god best.

AnZa Espresso Machine

With its brutalist concrete façade and powder-coated steel fixtures, this is a singular espresso machine you won’t mind hogging all your precious counter space. (Helps that it makes a damn good latte too.)

Hermès Etrier Key Ring

You’re about a thousand times less likely to lose your keys when they’re dangling from an elegant Hermès fob.

House of Skuff Potion No. 1 Styling Cream

Hollywood grooming lines are a dime a dozen, but the inaugural product from celebrity hairstylist Mira Chai Hyde blends touchability, hold, and a pinch of shine to help you dial in your flow like an A-lister on an Erewhon run.

Rothco CWU-45P Flight Jacket

Don’t sleep on your local army-navy as a low-key menswear haven. Rothco’s burly mil-spec bomber boasts a baked-in Top Gun swagger, a just-right cropped fit, and a sub-$100 price tag.

Paraboot Pacific Sandals

By leaning into its fuddy-duddy bona fides, Paraboot turns out impeccable footwear designed to age like a top-shelf Merlot—and protect your feet long enough to make ’em worth it. Pair these rubber-sole fisherman sandals with scrunched camp socks now, and with no socks at all when you’re too old to give a damn.

Calvin Klein Cotton Tank Top

They’re called wife-pleasers now, for the record. CK’s definitive spin looks alluring as hell layered under breezy camp shirts, freaky cardigans, and tough-as-nails chore coats.

The one thing your carpenter dad, skater nephew, and fashion-obsessed sister can all agree on? These hardy, infinitely versatile work pants, which cost less than $30 and will last more than 30 years.

Style gods like Pharrell and John Mayer swear by this knockabout digital watch, which’ll serve you well during all manner of gym sessions, woodsy hikes, and casual weekend hangs.

Tracksmith Van Cortlandt Tee

Tracksmith’s signature tee has all the features you need in a workout shirt—it’s moisture-wicking, breathable, and odor-busting—plus a couple you didn’t know you needed, like the preppy-cool sash stripe across the front.

Leica M11 Camera

If you’re going to drop an obscene amount of money on a camera, it should be a Leica. And if you’re going to buy a Leica, it should be the M11, a new-and-improved riff from the brand’s range finder line that’ll make your busted iPhone camera feel like a single-use Kodak.

Nobody makes a better down parka than Crescent Down Works, which has been turning out retro-leaning, winter-busting outerwear from its family-owned Pacific Northwest facilities for nearly 50 years.

BruMate Rotera Water Bottle

BrüMate’s sleek, sculptural water bottle boasts plenty of nifty features you’ll appreciate when you’re hydrating on the go. But unlike your dollar-store canteen, it’ll serve you even better between sips, classing up your office desk.

Lady White Co. Lite Jersey Tee

LA’s Lady White Co. produces its ultra-premium, perfect-fitting tees in a wide array of weights. Our favorite of the bunch is this slinky-but-not-precious ring-spun cotton version; it’s ideal for stifling summer days and feels so featherlight that you’ll almost forget you’re wearing it.

Ever wondered what your favorite MA-1 jacket would look like as a bag? The Japanese repro experts at Porter-Yoshida & Co. have the answer, down to the puffy nylon exterior and hi-vis orange lining.

Merrell Moab 3 Shoes

To dub a shoe the “Mother of All Boots” is audacious. To follow that shoe with a new-and-improved silhouette that’s even freakier than its predecessor isn’t merely audacious—it’s a throwing of the gauntlet. The Moab 3 lives up to its name and then some, updating the rugged all-terrain stomper for the next generation of Merrell acolytes.
