This is the Want List, a semi-frequent rundown of stylish new clothing, accessories and gear our editors are feeling for one reason or another—and, for lack of a better word, want.
Today's edition includes some wear-anywhere boots, a throwback watch and new innovations in fleece. First up...
What it is: The mid-cut Maslon Desert boot from your pals at SeaVees. For FW19, they're using a new rugged oiled leather and outsole. The general handsomeness and versatility have remained the same.
Why we want it: A good chukka is a wardrobe staple, especially as we approach cooler weather. Pair them with jeans, and you just nailed the bottom half of your ensemble.
What it is: The new Levi's Wellthread x Outerknown collaboration has graciously given us this fleece-lined denim jacket. It's made from cottonized hemp, a comfortable fabric that requires less water and fewer chemicals to produce.
Why we want it: Looks good. Feels good. Doesn't hate the planet. Not a bad checklist when layering for fall.
What it is: Taylrd's comfortable cotton tech chinos are four percent spandex, so they'll move with you whether you're in the office or biking home.
Why we want it: As people who wear pants, we appreciate leg covers that bridge the classy-casual divide with aplomb.
What it is: Legacy jerseys from Mitchell & Ness that channel a bygone era. There's a 1968 Bart Starr, a 1969 Joe Namath and a 1975 Frank Tarkenton, among others.
Why we want it: Because it's football season. And if we're going to wear another man's name on our back, let that name be Tarkenton.
What it is: Fossil's Defender Archival series is a limited edition homage to the field watch that it introduced more than three decades ago.
Why we want it: Damn fine watch. And it comes in a handsome leather box set that features an additional strap and two extra top rings to keep things fresh.
What it is: A covetable western jacket from Basic Rights in black and camel wool. It's got the classic short-cut style with dual hip pockets and cuff buttons.
Why we want it: Pair it with pants and a T-shirt, and you'll exude that effortlessly cool look people try so hard to achieve.
What it is: You know Patagonia's ubiquitous fleece jackets. Well, this is a new fleece chore coat made from recycled materials that just might become your favorite casual layer.
Why we want it: Patagonia basically invented fleece, and 'tis the season for chore coats.
