Cool Stuff to Buy

BUYER VS. EDITOR [10/18-10/22]

Chris Wong and Tyler Thoreson go head to head, naming their favorite pieces from this week on Gilt.

TYLER: EVER COTTON HOODIE

“To paraphrase the great educational philanthropist Mark Zuckerberg, the last thing that needs reinvention is the hoodie. And yet, the asymmetry of the zipper on this version breathes some new life into a functional staple.”
$78; on sale Monday at noon ET.

CHRIS: AREAWARE BIKES – FOLDING ORANGE BIKE

“In New York, a bike is the best mode of transportation. It’s easier than the subway plus you get the cardio benefits. I love the happy color and the fact that it folds up so you can keep at your desk”
$559; on sale Tuesday at noon ET.


TYLER: LIFETIME COLLECTIVE KIRUNA SWEATER

“Over the past few seasons the chunky knit has gone from a novelty to essential (who knows, maybe we’ll make it an official Essential).”
$52; on sale Tuesday at noon ET.

CHRIS: FRED PERRY BY RAF SIMONS – BLACK V-NECK SWEATER

“Raf Simons is the most directional menswear designer today, and his collaboration with Fred Perry is genius. It’s a great fit and I like the touch of pink in the laurel. This sweater makes a great layering piece, as the weather is October can be unpredictable.”
$128; on sale Wednesday at nine p.m. ET.


CHRIS: PANTOFOLA D’ORO – LOW TOP SNEAKER

“Pantofola d’Oro is a historic Italian footwear company that dates back to 1886. They were innovators in sport sneakers and were one of the first to make football sneakers. They’ve recently relaunched the brand using old world techniques in updated designs. These are super comfortable sneakers that look also smart.”
$128; on sale Thursday at noon ET.

TYLER: SEIZE SUR VINGT PLAID SHIRT

“Leave it to SSV founder James Jurney to create a casual plaid with the sharp tailoring and craftsmanship of a European dress shirt.”
$88; on sale Thursday at noon ET.

CHRIS: CA$HMERE – PRINTED CARDIGAN

“The guys from Ca$hmere have taken the Hermes orange ribbon and created this witty print on a cardigan. It’s a lot of fun and an attention grabber.”
$118; on sale Thursday at noon ET.


TYLER: BARON WELLS STRIPED TIE

“Whether or not you do it for breast cancer awareness or good, old-fashioned style, here’s a subtler way to wear pink than what you’ve been seeing on NFL football fields lately.”
$58; on sale Friday at noon ET.

TYLER: RICK OWENS WHITE OVERCOAT

“Rick Owens doesn’t have time for silly debates over whether to wear white after Labor Day. He just makes amazing clothes–like this statement-making overcoat.”
$478; on sale Friday at noon ET.

CHRIS: RICK OWENS – LEATHER DUFFLE BAG

“I love everything that Rick Owens does. Beyond the clothing, he does the most amazing shoes and accessories. This duffle bag is the perfect example – the leather is amazing, it’s super cool looking, and makes a nice alternative to a messenger bag.”
$1,198; on sale Friday at noon ET.
