The New York Times Magazine gets a makeover, a new fragrance from Juniper Ridge, blacked-out boots from Alden and more.



The New York Times Magazine Relaunch
This past weekend, subscribers to The New York Times were introduced to a new look for the supplementary Times Magazine since its last makeover in 2011. Led by the magazine’s design director Gail Bichler, and art director Matt Willey, it features many changes in terms of design and content for the print issues, including entirely original typefaces and a heavier stock paper. Readers on tablets and phones will also be pleased by its revamped responsive design for digital platforms. nytimes.com

epaulet x Alden Blackjack Boots
The Blackjack boot is an understated collaboration between Alden Shoe Company and Brooklyn-based retailer epaulet. With black leather laces and metal eyelets (also in black), its plain-toe upper is constructed from soft-grin “Lady Calf” leather with a matte finish. Adding to its austere aesthetic is the boot‘s rugged Commando sole. $575

Juniper Ridge Desert Denim Wash
Juniper Ridge continue their line of fragrances, this time with a small-batch spray meant to mask all those unwanted odors that result from unwashed pairs of raw denim. The 3.3-ounce spray is a blend of wild-harvested cedar, sawdust, Mojave sunflower and other botanicals for a dry, leathery scent that works well on the rest of your apparel too. $45

Lacoste X J.Crew Polo
J.Crew and Lacoste, both titans in contemporary menswear, team up for a new polo shirt inspired by Lacoste’s rich heritage. The shirt, available for purchase exclusively at J.Crew, includes notched tennis tails, a slim silhouette, and a revived retro logo: the croc in blue. $98

Patagonia R2 Yulex/Nexkin Wetsuit
This cool water wetsuit from Patagonia, intended for 55-degree waters, is constructed from plant-based Yulex biorubber, with a Nexkin windproof coating that cuts down on evaporative cooling. The collar, arms and lower legs are lined with water-resistant recycled polyester, staying true to the brand’s ethos of sustainability and performance. $529

WINWEL Baseball Caps
The Brooklyn-based headwear company WINWEL expands their playful line beyond bucket hats with high-end baseball caps, each garment crafted from a unique textile. Standouts include the black cotton boucle cap with navy silk satin under the brim, as well as the cashmere/wool blend cap in a neutral olive color. $125
