  • ADIDAS GAZELLE SUPER SHOE

    ADIDAS GAZELLE SUPER SHOE

    Stylin'. In Suede.

    Men, it's time to kick your Winter blahs with a pop of color and don these classic blue suede beauties from adidas, the Gazelle Super Shoe.

    The Gazelle Super made its debut back in '87. Now a sought-after collector's item, the original design has long been unavailable, but on the Gazelle's 30th anniversary, adidas Originals brings it back. 

    So whether you're a gallerist, tennis ace or banker (yep, that's right), say buh-bye to the blues and hello, Gazelle blues.

  • AETHER MEN'S HIGHLINE JACKET

    AETHER MEN'S HIGHLINE JACKET

    Look Cool, Not Cold.

    Don't let these balmy 35 degree days fool you. It's still Winter, so it's all about looking your best while staying warm. Whether it’s après ski, running across the street for the morning coffee or a casual evening out with friends, the city-styled Highline jacket is Aether’s most insulated coat to date.

    Water, wind and cold resistant, the Highline jacket may just be your best friend this winter. And since thin is in, we love how it offers all the warmth of a puffer jacket without the bulk. Its outer shell is made from a water-resistant ® microfiber fabric that has been diagonally quilted, while its inside liner is made from a silky-soft microfiber ripstop nylon. We’re also fans of its form-flattering construction with a special shout out to its non-quilted side panels and underarms and anchored bottom-hem adjusters for a sleeker fit. 

    So make hay this season and look great while doing it.

    p.s. At TheLUXURIAN, we heart the one in navy.

  • J.CREW LUDLOW SPORTCOAT

    J.CREW LUDLOW SPORTCOAT

    Awesome Has a New Look.

    At TheLUXURIAN, we’ve always said you can’t go wrong with a tailored look. Which would explain why we absolutely heart the Ludlow Sportcoat from J.Crew. This chino jacket sports a one-button silhouette for a tack sharp look that’s oh so au courant. 

    The notch lapel collar and double vent also adds a stylish note to what’s already a pretty smart look—all at a price that’ll make you feel even smarter.

    Gents, we’ll see you in the boardroom.

  • BRAUN COOLTEC SHAVER

    BRAUN COOLTEC SHAVER

    The Coolest Shave Around.

    Let’s face it. Shaving in the morning with an electric razor isn’t always a breeze. Shaving irritation gives a burn that’s anything but luxurious. Which is why Braun’s new CoolTec Shaver just may eliminate that irritation forever.

    The Thermo-Electric-Cooling technology cools as it runs with an aluminum cooling bar that’s easy on the skin. As for tough hairs, its engineers designed a three-stage cutting system with a SensoBlade to cut down hairs both short and long in a single pass, no matter which direction they're growing.

    Stay smooth. Stay cool, people. (And, just in time for Father's Day!)

  • 'NAPER' PENNY LOAFER

    'NAPER' PENNY LOAFER

    Penny Wise.

    If there’s one thing Donald Pliner knows, it’s waffle irons. Just kidding. The man knows shoes. Specifically, how to re-work the classics into modern icons of simplicity and elegance.

    Case in point, the ‘Naper’ Penny Loafer. We love how the electric contrast stitching re-defines a classic penny loafer. Even better, the soft suede adds a touch of classy insouciance that wouldn’t be out of place in a board room or a start up.

    It’s made in Italy, natch, and also comes in red suede for those who dare. So wear it with purpose and the confidence that looking good will never go out of style.

  • ROLEX OYSTER PERPETUAL COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA PLATINUM WATCH

    ROLEX OYSTER PERPETUAL COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA PLATINUM WATCH

    Watch. And Wonder.

    There are watches. And then there are Rolex watches. And while we’re not discounting the other grand watches of the world, let’s just admit that there are more time pieces than we, at TheLUXURIAN, have wrists for.

    Yet if we were stranded on a desert island and could only choose one watch to grace our wrist, this friends, would be that watch.

    Created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original and hewn entirely from 950 platinum, it features a Cerachrom brown ceramic bezel, an ice blue dial, and a 4130 self-winding movement.

    It looks equally at home with you spear fishing on white sands or spending an idyllic evening at the opera.

    Just as boys grow to be men, this Rolex is what a watch wants to be when it grows up.

  • LORO PIANA DELAVE FIVE-POCKET PANTS

    LORO PIANA DELAVE FIVE-POCKET PANTS

    Improve Your Bottom Line.

    At the turn of the 19th century, the Loro Piana family opened its wool business and for decades they've supplied haute couture houses with fine fabrics. Today the esteemed Italian company still creates its famous wool, along with its own impeccable designs for both men and women.

    Case in point, the five-pocket jeans for men in a light purple/heather grey. The sophisticated Delave cotton/spandex fabric and the slim, straight Italian cut and styling will put the smart in your casual.

    Molto buono, guys. Better get ready for the compliments!

  • MONCLER MILITARY FIELD JACKET

    MONCLER MILITARY FIELD JACKET

    A Salute to Spring.

    Founded in 1952, Moncler has always designed savvy outerwear and sportswear that married classic sensibilities with on-trend styles.

    This military-style field jacket upholds the Moncler tradition with a jaunty look that’ll carry you through Spring and into Fall.

    We particularly like the dressy epaulets and convenient cargo pockets on the chest—not to mention the subtle yet oh so distinctive logo patch on the left sleeve.

    One note, this line runs small so we recommend going one size larger than normal.

    You may just get a medal for looking damn good.

  • COLE HAAN COOPER SQUARE WINGTIPS

    COLE HAAN COOPER SQUARE WINGTIPS

    Spring Forward.

    Not all wingtips are created equal. Some have a certain, shall we say, je ne sais quoi; a certain jaunty insouciance that projects confidence. And these Cooper Square Wingtips from Cole Haan definitely have the confidence built in—right down to their pink laces.

    At TheLUXURIAN, we like how they've fused the wingtip oxford classic look with the latest technology including a leather upper and a full length Nike Lunarlon sockliner for extra comfort. Dress this shoe up, or better yet, with your most beat up tee and something sporty. You really can’t go wrong either way.

    Shoes like this is why Spring was invented.

  • OMEGA SPEEDMASTER PROFESSIONAL WATCH COLLECTION

    OMEGA SPEEDMASTER PROFESSIONAL WATCH COLLECTION

    A Watch for the Ages.

    When it comes to a statement about who you are, it doesn’t get more personal than a man’s timepiece.

    Which is why at TheLUXURIAN, we can’t help but believe if you only have one fine watch, you can’t go wrong with this timeless Omega Speedmaster Professional.

    Omegas have been the watch of choice for test pilots and astronauts since the Fifties. In fact, an Omega Speedmaster Professional Chronograph was the first watch on the moon, worn by Buzz Aldrin.

    Today, the Speedmaster remains the consummate man’s watch. With a highly legible dial and classic white-on-black markings, it’s equally at home in deep space as it is in a boardroom or breaking new land-speed records.

    As functional as it is handsome, the Speedmaster is about as classic as it gets—as time, will definitely tell.

    Dressier than jeans and in a cut that's more modern than slacks, these could very well become your go-to pants for any occasion. With a 50/50 mix of poly/wool, we might we add that these will take you comfortably through just about any season.

    After all, Spring is just around the corner. So wear them well.

  • BLUE REBEL FROM SWATCH

    BLUE REBEL FROM SWATCH

    The Boyfriend Watch.

    Sure, it's a watch that's intended for a man and is a size that would look great on a gentleman’s wrist. But frankly, we suspect it’ll look even sexier on a woman. Any time and anywhere.

    Which is why we’re declaring the water-resistant Blue Rebel from Swatch a confident timepiece that’s perfect as your daily go-to wrist wear. Pair with Buddha beads, your fave chain link from Tiffany or a simple leather band if you like. Whether you choose to accompany your Swatch with other wrist gear, or not, this is a piece that can dress up or down seamlessly.

    And at an oh-so-reasonable Swatch price, we recommend a nice bottle of Dom to celebrate your thrifty yet chic sense of fashion.

    Gentlemen, take note. Be a rebel—buy two.

    At TheLUXURIAN, we heart bags of all sorts. So we’ve taken quite a fancy to the understated yet capable Drake Duffel which packs a lot of features into its slim and modern design.

    We like the padded and fleece-lined device compartments, including a front exterior phone pocket and separate interior storage for an iPad. In fact, from the blended wool outer shell to ample storage for a 15” laptop, this is a classy all-day companion that will keep you looking good while you’re on the go.

    Ford. Tom Ford.

    Bond is back and he’s never looked better. Especially since he’s been outfitted in the impeccable style of designer Tom Ford. At TheLUXURIAN, we’re particularly enamored with the Tom Ford Marko sunglasses which, frankly, look hot on Daniel Craig—and we’re sure they’ll look awesome on you too.

    The Non-Partisan Cardigan.

    Today is Election Day and TheLUXURIAN would like to take a moment to salute democracy, the ultimate luxury that we often take for granted, but should never take lightly.

    That said, we’re sure no matter which way you may lean, this Hugo Boss look would be handsome on either of our candidates, and on you as well.

    At TheLUXURIAN, we’re watch nerds. So we’re thrilled to see the Swiss-wizards at Ernst Benz strike gold again with their ChronoLunar Officer. Combining a modern aesthetic with historical influences, these watches are a more refined yet equally rugged version of the original military watches.

    Time may be fleeting but at least it’ll look amazing on your wrist.

  • PAUL SMITH BLOCKED STRIPED SCARF

    PAUL SMITH BLOCKED STRIPED SCARF

    Let There Be Stripes.

    Here’s a fact. With a good scarf around your neck, you don’t have to have the thickest of jackets. Which means that leather blazer you scored in SoHo or that cherished barn jacket your Dad gave you can take you through the season a whole lot longer.

    In our book, this Paul Smith scarf is a great companion to just about any outerwear. And, with the juanty stripe motif, this is an accessory that can be dressed up or down, depending on your mood.

    So stay warm even when you're looking cool.

    MONCLER SKI COATS

    A Moncler State of Mind.

    As much as we hate to admit it, Winter is around the corner. But, fear not, there is a silver lining. In a word, Moncler.

    Whether you're schussing in Chamonix, boarding in Boulder, or just walking to grab a coffee, the new ski coats from Moncler are deliciously suited for all occasions. Designed to be ultra contemporary—yet with a slight retro nod to Roger Moore while skiing with Lynn-Holly Johnson in For Your Eyes Only—this is a brand that's molto stylish for men and super sexy for women.

    TOM FORD UNISEX DARK HAVANA GLASSES

    Seriously. Stylish. Specs.

    Is there anything this guy can't do well? Tom Ford introduced his new eyewear line for men and women, and TheLUXURIAN not only approves, we're smitten. This eyewear collection is beautifully constructed in Italy, art-y, and free of all that bling that so often plagues frames these days. Just straightforward, no nonsense design—kinda in the same vein as other modern classics such as Mies van der Rohe, the Bauhaus and Eames.

    In particular, we're loving these unisex semi-rounded square beauties in dark havana. Substantial and perfect for the office (hello, art directors), the gallery, the ballet or pretty much whatevs.

    Go ahead. You know you want to.

  • BARBOUR BLACK STREAK INTERNATIONAL MOTORCYCLE JACKET

    BARBOUR BLACK STREAK INTERNATIONAL MOTORCYCLE JACKET

    Wax On. Wax Off.

    Invented in the 1850s as a way to waterproof seamen's clothing, wax cotton has evolved into a thing of elegance as well as utility. And at TheLUXURIAN, we're glad it did.

    Case in point, the Barbour Black Streak International. This heavily distressed motorcycle jacket boasts a 100% cotton original Northumbria check lining for wind protection while still feeling supple and luxurious. And the waxed cotton interior shields you from the elements for which we daresay you’ll be infinitely grateful for this season since the coated cotton shell provides equal amounts of warmth, breathability and protection from rain.

    And since waxed cotton wears similarly to leather, the more you wear it, the more handsome it looks. But you knew that already.

    At TheLUXURIAN, we've looked long and hard for a sportcoat that will take you from biz to casual to outerwear and back.

    p.s. Don't forget to tailor.

    It’s a scent that isn’t too heavy or too strong. Rather, it’s just right. Men, take our word for it. Next time you find yourself in the cologne section, try some for yourself. It’s a grown-up, masculine scent that works well for business, pleasure—or both.

With a pocket square, you can signal a plane, fashion a small flag or just keep your cool while exploring the savannah. Leave it to Thomas Pink to modernize this gentlemanly hallmark with a bold range of handsome stripes and a discreet Pink logo on the border. TheLUXURIAN thinks it's a pleasing palette that even Fred Astaire would have approved of.
