Time to step into a new season — read more about the Lancy Aire x Taylor Stitch Collection below.
Rest assured, folks: In today’s edition of The List, we’ve got the lowdown on the new men’s style essentials you need to buy to close out this month — and look toward September and beyond. The theme this month has been that, well, summer’s winding down, Labor Day is approaching and early fall (the best time for menswear) is on the way. Without further ado, here’s the gear you’re going to need for it — including an iconic vintage watch, naturally.
CYMA WWW Dirty Dozen Watch — $2,450
Without a doubt, a drool-worthy watch to wear every single day.
Now, don’t be alarmed by that price tag — we’re assuredly starting today’s edition of The List off with a bang, but the CYMA WWW Dirty Dozen Watch is one of the best vintage watches on the market. It was one of 12 models made for the British military, and it’s part of the new Lancy Aire x Taylor Stitch Collection. It’s a watch to covet and lust after … and it’s also the rare vintage watch you should actually be able to, y’know, wear. It should work nicely with a classic chambray shirt and slim tan chinos this season.
Flint and Tinder Garment-Dyed Oxford — $118
The breezy Oxford shirt that’s been perfectly broken-in for you.
We’ve talked in the past on this site about this American-made Oxford shirt, but it’s worth bringing it to the forefront again. It’s one of the best men’s shirts in any season, and especially primed to layer over your favorite slub tee on an early fall weekend.

Slim blue denim in selvedge — the kind of jeanas you’ll wear all the time.
The best men’s blue jeans are easier to find than you might think — simply shop Mott and Bow. They’ve been a longtime favorite of the blog for the ease of purchase and the serious style points.
