Your parents don’t quite understand how you can work from home yet afford to sustain your own life. Just because a guy doesn’t have a desk doesn’t mean he’s not always hard at work…right? Prove your workday mettle (not before noon, of course) with this laptop desk arrangement. It’s handmade from solid bamboo, which absorbs what heat isn’t ventilated through the myriad vents in its structure, and features a simple phone or tablet stand as well as a durable, integrated mousepad. You’ll have to find somewhere else to set your beer. $100

It’s built off the Oak Street Trench boot with Dainite soles and a Goodyear welt — but the trick part is the extended cap toe, which is purpose-made for shifting your hog. deuscustoms.com ()

Parker-Dusseau-Commuter-Suit-Gear-Patrol Parker Dusseau Commuter Suit
Only authentic Italian oumo can truly pull off a “normal” suit while biking about the streets of Italia. For those of us who don’t ride through the piazza during our morning commute but still want to look like a million Euro, there are these awesome suit separates engineered for a seamless transition from bike to work. The Australian Superwool outers contain bits of Spandex for full range of motion and supreme comfort (with a little moisture wicking to boot). The jacket is lined with a breathable and stretchy mesh, while out back pleats near the shoulders allow for extra movement. The pants feature a grippy inner waistband to keep shirts in place, and, like the other pieces in this lineup, also boast reflective material on the inside hems for those times when cuffs are rolled and collars are popped. $245+
