black chukka oak 01 Black Caminando Chukkas at OakNeed to refresh your chukka boot collection? Oak’s black chukkas are exclusive to OakNyc.com and are handmade in Mexico–not your standard chukkas. The sole is thicker and more stand-out than usual, but the rest of these 100% leather chukka uppers are fashioned in a classic manner. Skinny laces on these thick chukkas provide good contrast.

Black Camden Linen Jacket at Oak

Comune Camden linen Jacket 02 Black Camden Linen Jacket at OakDuring my weekly Oak stalking session, I spotted this great jacket from Comune. Instead of a heavier, structured jacket, you can take advantage of one with lightweight drape. The Camden Linen Jacket features a two-button closure, wrapped buttons, side-slit pockets, and a slit chest pocket. A good sheen on this jacket makes it suitable for pepping up tees. [$172 at oak]

LAS Animal Rings at Oak

LAS jewelry hare 01 LAS Animal Rings at OakOak NYC regularly stocks interesting men’s jewelry and accessories, and I make it a point to explore their recent additions to the site each week. Their animal-inspired items are intriguing and have been on my radar since they first added unusual men’s pieces from LAS. The Hare and Wolf Rings at Oak (wolf shown after the jump!) have a distinctive design aesthetic that puts them in the same category without making them look too similar (and therefore snore-y). The Hare ring, shown above, is cast from a hand-carved wax mold in recycled bronze. Bronze is an unsung hero when it comes to affordable men’s jewelry, and the hare has some gold undertones that are expected of white bronze pieces.Meanwhile, the wolf’s a bit stormier-looking. Still cast from recycled bronze, but with a decidedly darker look to it, the cheaper of the two rings won’t leave you guessing what color it’ll turn when or if it changes over time (not exactly my favorite game!). Also of interest is a primitive-looking fish ring by LAS and a tough sabretooth ring in the same bronze. Bright, and yet not so precious that you can’t wear them when you want.

Antoine Stanley Braided 02 New at Oak: Antoine & Stanley Braided Shoes
Oak just released a couple breezier shoe styles, and these ones are by far the most agreeable of the newly-dropped options. Oak’s selections are a little mandal-y, a little oxford-y, including a pair with a buckled heel strap and an open design. Oak’s shoes are hit-or-miss this time around, but the Antoine & Stanley Black Calvin Braided Shoes are winners. Highly glossy and textured, these shoes have a dressy shape paired with a more casual upper effect. Those who declare themselves “not the sandals type” will still find the braided ones cool enough for summer.Oak’s Antoine & Stanley shoes are constructed from perforated braided leather and feature an enclosed heel and synthetic sole. Being 100% calf leather and handmade, they represent value for the money. These made-in-Australia shoes also have a good reputation, although you don’t have to sacrifice personal style to get a pair of quality shoes in this case. The Luke Open Back Sandals, with a round toe and a wrap-around ankle strap, are not for everyone; the Otto Cut-Out shoe is also more challenging from a sartorial standpoint. The Black Calvin Braided Shoes allow you to combine some degree of airiness without completely overhauling the rest. [$214 at oak]

Silent by Damir Doma Sailor Bag

sailor bag oak 03 Silent by Damir Doma Sailor Bag
Oak’s restocking! If you were looking for something on Oak and it wasn’t available, this could be your chance. Unfortunately, stores of some of their newly-stocked pieces have already been exhausted. Silent by Damir Doma was brought back to the accessories section on the site. If you’re not opposed to leather, then stick to it for traveling—it doesn’t wear out like canvas will.I’ve had a bag like this for about twenty years, and it wears well and looks good. Giving it a good professional clean once a year will not only kill the germs living on it from resting it on the ground and on chairs, but will leave its texture even. The Silent by Damir Doma bag has a heavy metal zipper, left exposed at the upper flap and flipped over and secured with a leather strap. This bag can also be used as a tall sailor’s bag, or flipped over, as pictured below, for compact carrying. Metallic studs will close the bag, which measures W19” x H35” x D18”. There are large main compartments for some organization, so you can keep your possessions in order when you’re on the move. [out of stock AGAIN at oak; watch this piece!]
