Club Monaco Ernest Alexander Dopp Kit
Ernest Alexander’s been making a name for himself with expertly crafted leather goods that only get better with age—now he’s teaming up with Club Monaco for a rugged dopp that comes pre-loaded with top-shelf (travel size) essentials like Marvis toothpaste and Bigelow after-shave.
The Art of Shaving Fusion Chrome Collection Power Shave Set
The frequent traveler’s morning routine, totally upgraded: a ProGlide razor, 1-oz. versions of pre-shave cream, oil, and after-shave balm, as well as a miniature version of the badger brush, to prime your whiskers before giving them a trimdown. Pair it with the Ernest Alexander dopp, and it’s like getting the full barbershop treatment in the hotel bathroom.
Byredo Accord Oud
Every man needs his signature scent, and there’s no better way to differentiate yourself from department store fragrances than going niche—try Accord Oud, a mix of leather, blackberries, and incense (oud means wood) by the consistently first-rate Swedish brand Byredo.
Malin and Goetz Peppermint Hair Shampoo
Almost everything M+G does—from rum hand wash to eucalyptus deodorant—is a winner, but the peppermint shampoo’s a real standout: tingly, invigorating, and an emphatic morning kick in the ass.

American Crew Molding Clay
For that piece-y bedhead look that’s more Pattinson than Situation, get a hair clay that leaves your hair with some shine without shellacking it. Rub some between your fingers, grab a few strands here and there, and head out the door.
