Men’s fashion is ever-growing. Upgraded materials and fabrics, unique silhouettes, and fresh creative visions dominate what’s “in” and what’s “out” these days.
The truth is we love all these new releases, so we went ahead and created a weekly column of all our favorite drops that have caught our eye. Enjoy!
Free & Easy is a brand rooted in SoCal culture. This newly-released unconstructed hat with “Don’t Trip” on the front is all we need in remembering to just take life easy, man.
Amundsen has a great story. It’s a brand founded by Jørgen Amundsen, the grandson of Norweigian Explorer Roald Amundsen, the first person to explore the South Pole all the way back in 1911. Today, Jørgen carries on his grandfather’s legacy by creating durable gear for the outdoors and adventuring. The Okavanga is one of the latest releases from the outfitter. The bag holds up to 35L and is perfect for throwing in the overhead bin on your next flight out of town.
And with that duffle bag, we also have our eyes on this woven belt from Amundsen. Leather accents, branded rivets, and an azure blue pattern put this belt a touch above the rest.
Watchmaker MVMT knew they wanted to make a splash in celebrating their 8 year anniversary as a company. They turned some out-of-the-box thinking into this ultra-sleek “8” design in the center of their Blacktop silhouette to showcase their achievements. Limited to only 500, this is certainly a watch collectors should hone in on.
Alsta’s Motorscape was made for motorcyclists. It’s born to ride, but that doesn’t mean those without a chopper can’t enjoy the fine craftsmanship of such a speed-inspired watch. The Motoscape includes a unique left-handed crown position to avoid digging into a bent wrist, a 12-hour GMT rotating bezel, an anti-reflective coating, and a Seiko NH35 auto-winding mechanical movement—a stylistic choice Alsta added so motorcyclists need not worry about “Monday approaching.”
3sixteen’s model CT-100xk jean is made with raw 14oz indigo selvage denim and custom woven with low tension to give a rough, abrasive hand so they can fade tastefully over time. These jeans are rinsed with hot water to avoid any major shrinkage, and they’re cut with a tapered fit so they’ll never squeeze your legs too tight.
Junghans is not only celebrating their 160th anniversary as a company, but they’re also celebrating the 60th anniversary of this minimalist watch created by Swiss designer Max Bill. Our favorite model of the three-piece set is the Regulator Edition, as it features a movement so the hours read off a subdial and the minutes are read off the central minute hand. We must also point out the clever orange detailing of the hour and minute hands, along with the inside of the leather band.
The CASIO A100 series is an updated reproduction of the CASIO’s first resin case model, the F-100. Part of the upgrades of the watch are the materials themselves. The F-100’s resin made the watch look a bit plastic-y. The A-100’s are made with metal—stainless steel to be specific. For a little over half a C-note you can get a 1980’s style watch with all of today’s best features: water resistance, LED illumination, and calendar and stopwatch capability.
Crafted with polished gold vermeil, this 24-inch necklace makes a tongue-in-cheek reference with the actual gold paper clip inserted into the necklace’s links. It’s a subtle accessory that will elevate and accentuate your casual outfits.
The Anchor Automatic packs a sleek and luxury look at an affordable price. The case is made with titanium while the navy watch band is made with fine eco leather. We love the contrast between the exposed mechanical movement of the watch and the sandblasted textured dial the most.
