Suit-worthy sports watches are usually pricey enough to discourage you from wearing them for your daily grind, let alone to anything sporty on the weekend. Michael Kors’ stainless-steel and silver Jetmaster can take a hit, and the additional time zone is handy during business trips.
Briefcases are great for work—until you meet your friends for happy hour and instantly become “the Suit.” Diesel’s Phasers bag looks right in cube farms and bar booths alike. The fine-grain leather adds sophistication, while a dedicated inside sleeve keeps your laptop safe.
If you’re on the hunt for a pair of sunglasses with classic good looks and a tough, athletic edge, the Prada PS 53QS is it. With a hard metal frame and rubber finish that resists water, scratching, and sweat, these dynamos will stand up to whatever lies ahead.
Shoes are the easiest yet most overlooked way to elevate your style. Our recommendation: these Hugo Boss T-Legionio double monk- straps with a subtle hint of blue. More than just a style upgrade, they hug your instep to keep you comfortable all day long.

You already know how to wear it with a suit, but a tie bar goes great with business-casual looks, too—like clipped onto a wool tie thrown on a denim shirt. The Pete the Penguin tie bar from Original Penguin (comes in a set with matching cuff links) is a trend-proof finishing touch.
Think outside the suit: Try a classic tie bar on a wool tie worn with a denim shirt.
A modern encore to Givenchy’s classic go-to cologne, Gentlemen Only Intense lives up to its name by reinforcing the original fragrance’s incense, patchouli, and cedar core with bolder, woodier notes of spice and rawhide—making it more, well, intense.
