Utility shirts—sturdy button-ups made from heavy cotton twill—resist wrinkles and are a must-pack, especially one from Polo Ralph Lauren. Its line of shirts enlivens things with a color-blocked design and ramps up the comfort factor with brushed cotton, an airy spin on the classic fabric.

New watches mix racing and diving elements, enhancing their basic functionality. The Omega Seamaster sustains dives of 20,000 feet (or the pool’s deep end). The Tudor Black Bay Pro, the TAG Heuer Formula 1, and the Seiko Chronograph can measure split-second race times (or TGIF countdowns). And the IWC Pilot’s Watch’s titanium case with its EasX-change system allows you to switch out the strap in seconds.

Wear-everywhere sneakers are as light as they are durable, purpose-built for weekend hikes, terminal-to-terminal slogs, and urban exploration. This Skechers pick reinforces its outsole with Goodyear rubber (yeah, like Good- year tires), and Salomon’s grippy hiking lace-ups have an ultra-breathable mesh upper. And both the EA7 Emporio Armani and the Sorel Breakthru sneakers are easy to slip on and tie up in a rush.
