Maya Haile shares what she'd buy her stylish husband Marcus Samuelsson, chef at Red Rooster Harlem (New York City).

HAT "Marcus would probably buy vintage, but I'd get him a Borsalino cashmere driving cap." $265;

SUNGLASSES "I wouldn't buy him sunglasses since he'd just borrow mine anyway—like my Marc by Marc Jacobs pair (above left, on Haile)." From $98;

WATCH "I'd love to get him a vintage Rolex." The Cosmograph Daytona was first designed 50 years ago for race-car drivers. $12,000;

T-SHIRT "Marcus collects T-shirts wherever he goes. I'd buy him some supersoft Alexander Wangs." $105;

BAG "The sturdy totes from Want Les Essentiels de la Vie are the ideal size for everyday." $235;

JACKET "Paul Smith's are cut slim, which Marcus likes." $1,445;

SHOES "I can't go wrong with the newest, coolest Converse." $70;
