Paul Smith Barrick Sunglasses $310

Seduction is a game of hide and reveal. Your opening serve shouldn’t be any sort of grand gesture, but a subtle signal to start transmission. A sideways glance through a classic pair of wireframe aviators such as these, invested as they are with smooth curves, a slight navy glint and perfectly faded tan tint, will open the passages of communication.

Junghans X Max Bill Watch $1960

Being an assassin of any kind requires precision timing. It’s a more simple principle than you might think. Bells and whistles—adornments of any kind—will serve only to get in the way, and there’s no greater failure in this life than missing the target. Besides, no one likes a fussy guy. This is love and sex, after all, so just K.I.S.S.

Paul Smith Cesar Ankle Boots $560

Black boots speak to the inner bad ass in all people. This pair, trim in Italian leather and hardwood soles, is like a men’s work boot from a century ago hewn in the materials of modern luxury. Plain construction and slick detailing keep the simple principle in check, but there’s enough flash to make your entrance grand, your stay welcome, and your exit clean.

Levi’s Biker Leather Jacket $985

With a biker jacket, the big elements are always the same: the double-breasted zipper, the wide collar, the zippers and snaps. But how the pieces fit together can make them more than the sum of their legend. Don’t mess with a classic; this vintage re-issue, perfectly distressed at the seams but rich and textured in body, is probably tougher than you are. It’s a second skin you’ll need.

Mark McNairy F.O. Ring $230

Men who mean business don’t mince words. You don’t need to say things out loud to have them be known. The pinky ring is an understated move, but a bold enough one that no one with an eye for detail (aka, all women) will miss. With a message like this, the nice girls might sink back into the night, but the cream will always rise to the top.

Calm the wild thing in her with new twists on three classic cocktails. There’s nothing conventional about being a ladykiller, these days.

Deconstructed Daiquiri

Forget about the daiquiri’s ice slush incarnation at countless all-in resorts and take up something a little more primal. Fresh, tart raspberries are balanced by the smooth and sweet amber rum, while the dark Muscovado sugar covers just enough of the boozy bite.

The Sandy Survivor

You don’t know it yet, but the best last-call cocktail is a Long Island iced tea. And as a tribute to getting by in trying times, modify this most boozy of cocktails to strengthen the spirit with a dash of bourbon and an extra bite of citrus.

Bourbon Sazerac

Refresh a civil war-era cocktail with a sweet and simple line-up change by making it bourbon instead of rye. It’ll smooth out the burn as whisky and absinthe come together in a cerebral fog. Perfect for reeling her in.
