Here are our five favorite places at TurnStyle — upgrade your commute as quick as you can.

For all those times you need to grab a quick shirt or tie, or even an extra layer to fight the chill, Spectre & Co. is there. The brand’s line-up of slim-fit dress shirts, blazers, vests and menswear accessories — everything from tie clips to leather goods — are geared to help you look your best as you travel on the go. No more worrying about that spilled coffee on your shirt or tie — it’s as easy as stopping in at Spectre & Co. before you catch the subway.

Dog & Co.

There’s no question that as guys have gotten into dressing better, that same approach has carried over across all lifestyle facets — including pet care, grooming and yes, pet style. Say you need a quick dog treat or accessory as you head home — stop through Dog & Co. “TurnStyle’s openness to being dog-friendly, and (the location’s) fashion-meet-function sensibility really sealed the deal for us,” founder Mindy Montney said — hence the idea of a pet lifestyle shop where you wouldn’t normally find one. The store stocks everything from neat dog toys to dog coats and jackets — all made with style in mind, of course.

Doughnuttery

Got a craving for a delicious doughnut to go along with your morning coffee? Swing through Donuttery for one of the shop’s famous sugared donuts, featuring flavors that run the gamut from classic — cinnamon sugar — to eclectic (the Purple Pig features maple, purple potatoes and bacon). It’s a welcome gourmet touch in an area where a premium doughnut — or gourmet food — is usually very hard to come by; you’ll never see eating or shopping as you travel the same way again.

Specs

Among the many moving parts of your everyday carry, finding the right pair of sunglasses can be a tricky endeavor. And managing to hang onto those sunglasses through your commute? Even more difficult at times. That’s where Specs comes into play.With a range of stylish, premium sunglasses fit for all occasions, it’s tough to go wrong. Seriously, from Ray-Ban to Persol to Oliver Peoples, the store’s list of brands has you completely covered when it comes to picking up a sweet pair of shades on your commute.

Batter & Cream

Certain sweets can evoke fond memories — who wouldn’t want that during a stressful commute? Batter & Cream takes that approach when crafting its tasty gourmet whoopie pies. Never had one? You’ll likely want to try as many of the shop’s flavors as you can — especially if you commute through Columbus Circle every day. They run the gamut from banana salted caramel to cookies and cream & peanut butter and jelly — talk about an enjoyable treat to snack on before, during and after your trip.

This Tag Heuer F1 watch collab might be our favorite nostalgic throwback yet
TAG Heuer partners with Kith for Formula 1 watch
TAG Heuer x Kith Formula 1 watches

In its heyday, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection was a sensation, with the '80s and '90s seeing commercial success with over 20 vibrant colors. Ronnie Fieg, founder of Kith, a streetwear brand known for items that take us back to the days when life just seemed simpler, is resurrecting these TAG Heuer watches, though they will cost more than the previous timepieces, with the originals selling for between $130 and $390.

With over 3 million sold, these colorful watches carry a deep sense of nostalgia for millennials, who to this day are a generation seemingly obsessed with the past, and that is why these new TAG Heuer watches will probably sell well once again. Plus, Max Verstappen recently wore one at the Miami Grand Prix, and with the 2-time World Champion's face on something, it always sells big.
