It’s a very fashion-forward week, and nearly all of our current obsessions this week are meant to seriously up your style game. We’ve got a some fast food fashion, Tom of Finland sneakers, some great new sun specs and a handy beard-care kit. And, if you’re in California, we’ve got a cool new way to save time at the DMV.

1. McDonald’s apparel

If you can’t get enough of 2018’s newest and strangest fad, you’re in luck. Earlier this year, Uniqlo had a T-shirt collaboration with McDonald’s, and not to be outdone, Joseph Robinson, a streetwear designer from Chicago, also got in good with Mickey D’s. The new capsule collection features a bomber jacket, tees, socks and more, all decorated with the signature McDonald’s logo. Price upon request, available at select McDonald’s

2. Digital license plate

Ugh, license plate tags are such a pain. But if you’re in California you’ll never have to worry about them again. This innovative license plate has an e-ink display (just like a Kindle!). Not only will you no longer need to put sticker tags on your license plate each year, you can also display a personal message while you drive. The only downside: It’s not cheap. $700 (plus monthly fees), Reviver Auto

3. Tom of Finland sneakers

Tom of Finland always has the best stuff, and the Tom of Finland Foundation just released its latest collaboration with Eytys: These limited-edition Magnum sneaks. These army boot-inspired canvas hightops feature four iconic Tom of Finland pieces. We love them, and they’re perfect for Pride season. $270, tomoffinlandstore.com 

4. Spectacles

While Spectacles may look like ordinary (albeit stylish) sunglasses, nothing could be further from the truth. These retro-inspired glasses not only protect your eyes from the sun, but on a single charge they can store up to 70 videos and images. They’re also water-resistant, and don’t worry if your vision’s not so great, as you can add your own prescription lenses. $150, spectacles.com 

5. Men’s beard-grooming kit
