The Huckberry x Timex “Cola” Sport Watch [$131] is a perfect everyday watch. This is a classic everyday style you can wear with just about anything in your wardrobe. This design was inspired by the legendary military-inspired designs of the 1970s and 1980s. Starting with a blank canvas, Huckberry drew on those styles from the 70s and 80s and went with a military-inspired ‘crosshair’ dial with polished and faceted 6, 9, and 12 markers. This watch is finished with a woven stainless steel bracelet and a functional aluminum timing bezel, the HB x Timex “Cola” Sport Watch is everything you could want in a watch.

These Vans UA Authentic 44 DX Anaheim Factor [$75] are based on Vans’ original design from way back in 1966. The modern updates include Ortholite® sockliners for comfort, higher glossed foxing tape and cotton laces, updated signature rubber waffle outsoles for the best grip, and the sturdy uppers will take anything you throw at them.
