First up is the Koa Stonewashed Minimalist 40mm watch from Original Grain. This watch is partially crafted using a gorgeous all-natural Hawaiian Koa Wood. The steel is a 316L Stonewashed Silver Stainless Steel that’s built to last a very long time. This gorgeous everyday watch is powered by a highly precise and dependable Japanese Miyota Citizen Quartz movement and the genuine leather band is my personal favorite detail because of its classic aesthetic.

The quilting texture is specifically engineered to absorb your body heat in cooler temperatures and keep you comfortable. This vest is wind-resistant and ultra-soft on the body. I’ve been a Mizzen+Main fan for years, they’ve made half of the dress shirts in my closet. I didn’t think they could top their superior craftsmanship but they’ve really taken it to the next level with these vests.
