Every week, we sit down with Nick Wooster—our very own in-house style expert and all-around dapper gent—to take a look at what’s on the horizon and call out a few favorites. Here, his take on the cream of the crop for the days ahead.

Florsheim by Duckie Brown Shoes & Socks — Monday, 12/5, noon ET
“I never met a wingtip I didn’t like, and Daniel and Steven of Duckie Brown design great ones for Florsheim. The line is a fantastic reinterpretation of classic English-by-way-of-American footwear, and I’ve probably had more pictures of me taken in a pair of their yellow wingtips than any other single item in my wardrobe.”

ACNE Jeans & Filippa K — Tuesday, 12/6, noon ET
“I took my first trip to Stockholm this past September, and when I was there I couldn’t help but notice that not only are the Swedes a really good-looking people, they also have great style. And these are the two go-to brands for everyone there.”

Incase — Tuesday, 12/6, noon ET
“I managed to score one of their computer sleeves last time they were on Gilt, and I was very happy about that. You really shouldn’t have a MacBook Pro—or any other computer—without one. I actually look for Incase sleeves in the airport security line. It’s how I secretly judge people.”

Get the Look: Indulgent Essentials — Wednesday, 12/7, noon ET
“Kelly McCabe is one of our in-house men’s styling wizards. She’s über-awesome, and she’s a great friend. With this sale, she’s pulled together a great edit of some of the best items on the site, and then presented them in a way that will show any guy how to dress to beat those mid-winter doldrums.”

Blinde Eyewear — Thursday, 12/8, noon ET
“Now that I’m approaching the “reading glasses” phase of my life, I’m always on the lookout for a new pair of frames, and Blinde has a great selection of both optical options and sunglasses. So whether you’re my age or not, you’ll definitely find something.”

Tucker Blair Belts — Thursday, 12/8, noon ET
“Investing in a great accessory is one of the easiest, fastest, and most budget-friendly ways for a guy to change his look. And Tucker Blair’s tongue-in-cheek belts will do just that—plus keep your pants up—with an array of needlepoint designs suited to any situation you can dream up.”

Gilded Age — Friday, 12/9, noon ET
“Stefan from Gilded Age has a great way of interpreting American heritage, but in a very modern way, with great attention to detail, fabrics, and construction. Plus, he’s a really nice guy.”
