One look at the TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrograph and it’s easy to tell this watch is going to be pricey. TAG Heuer has introduced the first ever column wheel integrated mechanical chronograph displaying the 1/100th of a second with a striking central hand allowing for easy reading. To me that just sounds expensive.

Luxury shoes always fall on the side of “buy,” but the shopping list would get too lengthy, too fast if we really planned on getting every single pair we saw. However, the H?Katsukawa Tokyo Silkprint Collection might be something that you actually want to track down, budget for, beg for, whatever suits your fancy. Certainly for the dapper man, the Tokyo Silkprint Collection has derbys and oxfords available with an antique-looking finish. Black round laces look superb on the pairs, of course, but so do the skinny light-colored laces shown above–or both.

Acronym’s iPad Bag costs basically as much as an iPad, and when I first saw it, I thought that maybe you got the iPad, and the bag came for free. Wrong, but that could be a cool partnership. The Acronoym Circdiscover iPad Bag has a swivel design that’s so ingenious. You’ll want this if you love your iPad, without a doubt, using it while you’re standing on the street corner, in line, or meandering through the park (but just make sure the area’s clear of iPad bandits).

Ronnie Fieg’s Clarks Originals Desert Boots are great, aren’t they? I can’t get enough of Clarks–like a lot of people out there, to be honest–and the slate blue ones are a good choice when it comes to bridging the gap between blacks/greys and colors for shoes. Matching slate blue laces are the finishing touch here, leaving these both denim-friendly and a pal to well-worn casual pieces. The shoes still haven’t gone on sale yet, so you have your chance to pounce, unlike some of the pieces we’ve spotted that are only available in limited sizing or that have sold out. These will be available on April 8th at Davidz.com (10 a.m. EST)… start your engines?

At first glance I was not loving the Pineapple Pants from Orvis. I’ve dabbled with sharks and lobsters on my pants, but no fruit to this point.
But it wasn’t long before I was envisioning myself in the pants, accompanied by a crisp, white t-shirt and flip-flops. At a beach bar somewhere, of course. Sure, you have an easy conversion starter with the pineapple-and-leaves print covering your lower half, but these pants are also built for maximum comfort.

If you want an easy way to punch up a spring outfit, go for stripes. They can be navy-and-white on a striped jersey shirt; they can be thicker and across a blazer body; they can be on an accessory of choice, like a cocked hat or a pair of deck shoes. While tight-to-the-body picks from Jean Paul Gaultier were the looks of choice featured in Schön, you don’t need to shrink-wrap yourself in a pair of tight striped trousers to win. A striped pocket square? That idea we like, along with the collegiate-looking blazer.
