Well Designed: The Most Stylish New Gear to Buy in January

 

Fashion houses have been doing cross-brand collab-orations for years. Now some of our favorite gear companies are getting in on the action, making mash-ups that highlight the strengths of both brands. The results are typically in short supply, so get 'em while they last.

Salt x Aether
Scout
L.A.'s Aether Apparel makes outerwear for serious adventures, such as the regular motorcycle rides it hosts. Add to the kit the Scout, featherweight titanium aviators made with Salt, another SoCal indie brand. [$600; aetherapparel.com]

Filson x Burton
Wheelie Flight Deck
We've always loved Burton's Wheelie Flight Deck's ability to swallow a week of clothing and still (miraculously) fit into an overhead bin. We like it even better with Filson's rugged twill body and leather trim. [$400; burton.com]

Harry's x Thom Browne
Thom Browne by Harry's 24K Gold Razor
Discount razor brand Harry's urges you to "never buy overpriced razors again." Unless, of course, they're dipped in a precious metal — like the Thom Browne by Harry's 24K Gold Razor. [$250; barneys.com]

Reef x H.D. Lee
Shelter Supply Collection
You wouldn't wear denim to the beach, but the Shelter Supply Collection from Lee Jeans and Reef is an unexpected win. Lee lends its workmanlike look to the surf-inspired line, which includes a herringbone work shirt, a heathered shawl, and this denim board bag. [$150; reef.com]

Vans x The North Face
Desert Chukka MTE LX
Though The North Face builds survival wear, you're likely to see its gear all around town. This winter, even skaters will sport cold-weather goods like the fleece-lined Desert Chukka MTE LX. A gusseted tongue and water-repellent leather keep you dry. [$130; vans.com/vault]

Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum x Schott NYC
Naval Peacoat
For four generations, the Schott family has made animal hides into bombers and motorcycle jackets synonymous with rene­gade cool. Now its clean-cut Naval Peacoat gets a rebel edge from a satin lining screened with the legendary tattooist's art. [$420; schottnyc.com]
