Season to season, month to month, day to day. Things are constantly changing all around us — style preferences included — with veteran “aficionados” dictating where and when to sport specific colorways. Well, here’s some news worth holding onto — there’s never a time when green and black style options aren’t acceptable. Call us fashionably myopic if you want but we’ll bet there’s little, if any, style options outlined below that aren’t appealing in some regard.

That, at least, is the motivation behind this style guide. Pairing timeless green and black clothing with key collaborations we’re fond of, a timepiece that shines like an emerald in the rough, and a pair of designer sunnies to keep the rays at bay. Yes, we’re fans in our own right, and it’s not just because the grass appears greener on our side.

Batch Explorer Work Shirt

Starting with the basics, the Explorer Work Shirt is a new edition from Batch. And with it comes an iconic casual fit — ideal for both the office and traveling abroad — while key attention to detail makes this a must-have for any modern guy. We’re talking handy utility pockets, functional tabs to keep your sleeves rolled back, rugged seams throughout for durable wear, and a 100 percent cotton fine twill construction.

Purchase: $88

Armatus Vita Travel Wallet

Built to carry your passports, documents, cash, and cards with ease, the Vita Travel Wallet is purposed to handle life on the road. Each piece boasts a Kydex construction, mil-spec strap, snap button closure, waterproof materials, and the wallet even doubles as an EDC pen holder.

Purchase: $30

California Crown Winter Trucker Hat

Keeping things warm and stylish, this wool trucker hat is just the thing to keep that low winter sun off your face. Each piece also hosts a leather strap with a gloss finished metal grommet, a woven label on the front panel, and branded inner paneling.

Purchase: $35

Izola Stainless Steel Flask

With every exploration or loosened journey comes a flask to keep things interesting. And thanks to this stainless steel army green option from Izola, purpose and form are perfectly fused as one.

Purchase: $42

Converse x Carhartt One Star Sneakers

Converse and Carhartt WIP — a match made in designer heaven. Here, we find the iconic low-top silhouette that makes Converse so special in conjunction with a Cordura upper and hangtag, Carhartt WIP military detail printing, and a sleek black and green colorway for good measure.

Purchase: $115

Unis Gio Jungle Chino Pants

A sharp fall alternative to the standard khaki or navy chino pant, this pair is built from midweight Italian cotton twill and includes corozo buttons throughout, a slim fit, tapered leg, and slanted front welt pockets.

Purchase: $118

Armogan E.N.B. Chronograph

Short for Ecurie National Belge, this racing-inspired two-dial chronograph is named after — you guessed it — Belgium’s historic formula one team from the mid-century. It ticks right along thanks to a Miyota Japanese quartz movement housed within a 316L stainless steel case and hosts the likes of a 24-hour indicator, stopwatch function, 50m water resistance, and a calendar window at the 6 o’clock position.

Purchase: $220

Moscot Billik Sunglasses

No matter what time of year it may be, sometimes there’s no escaping the sun. As an NYC brand, Moscot remains ahead of the curve in refined eyewear. Which is also what makes this pair so special. They’re crafted from translucent light-brown acetate, host a friendly square round shape, a keyhole bridge, and dark green lenses that offer 100 percent UV protection.

Purchase: $300
