Deakin & Francis Jet Turbine Engine Cufflinks

Deakin & Francis’ Jet Turbine Engine Cufflinks don’t only look way cooler than your average set of ‘links: they’ll also whirl real fast if you blow on them. Each pair is made of aircraft-grade aluminum and features realistic-looking angled blades that sit on micro-bearings so they can also spin freely. Otherwise, these quality cufflinks hold onto your shirt using domed oval spring link fittings and come in either brushed…

Stantt DataFit Shirts

Batch Freelancer Shirt

As flexible and versatile as you, Batch’s Freelancer Shirt is particularly well suited in taking you from your desk to enjoying a night out afterwards, and everywhere in between. While its utility roots and dual expanding chest pockets lend the shirt a rugged masculinity, its refined fit and soft, 100% cotton fabric are closer to what you’d find in a fine dress shirt to ensure you look always…

NikeLab ACG.07.KMTR

Inspired, believe it or not, by a brown paper bag scrunched around a foot to form a fitted profile, the futuristic-looking NikeLab ACG.07.KMTR foregoes laces, velcro, and any traditional sort of buckle for one that’s decidedly more complex in execution — but is simpler than ever to use. A four-way stretch upper shell is cinched around the top of your foot using an integrated draw cord pulled at the back of the…

BOLDR Odyssey Automatic Watch

Many dive watches look the part but can’t take the pressure, literally, of deeper dives. BOLDR’s Odyssey automatic watch can, and also won’t put much of a dent in your wallet. The Odyssey is powered by a reliable Seiko automatic movement and boasts a screwdown caseback, triple lock screwdown crown, a helium escape valve, and a robust case, all in all earning it a 500 meter (1,650 feet) water resistance rating…

Barrington Watch Winders

The job of a watch winder is pretty simple: spin a watch many times over to keep it wound. But any automatic watch amateur knows this job is crucial, lest they wear the watch just about every day. Barrington Watch Winders get this done reliably and with a design aesthetic that won’t be outclassed by the contained watch itself. Each winder features a whisper quiet motor that won’t drive you crazy while winding,…

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star With Nike FlyKnit

The Chuck Taylor has seen a lot of variations of its form of late. Here’s yet another, and one particularly suited to prolonged wear: the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star With Nike FlyKnit. Nike’s trickle-down tech adorns this sneaker with a FlyKnit upper that’s lightweight, breathable, and snug fitting, not unlike a sock, with more stretch and flexibility than the traditional canvas. It pairs this to a Lunarlon insole to add cushioning and a…

The pair couples a breathable felt outer with both a warm, cozy wool lining and a collapsible neoprene heel that you can either comfortably step on (like a mule) or wear…

Ressence x Hodinkee Type 1H

Unique and stunning as with all Ressence timepieces, the Ressence x Hodinkee Type 1H uses the watchmaker’s unusual orbital display instead of hands to display the time but is also, for the first time, skeletonized, letting you peer into the inner workings of the highly complex mechanisms within. The nested dial discs beneath its domed sapphire crystal lens are all made of sandblasted silver and boast milled markings and numerals filled with…

1978 New Balance

Based on the classic 990 that made its debut in 1978, the 1978 New Balance puts a modern, minimal spin on the major design elements it dredges up from the past. The USA-made sneaker pairs a pig suede upper to a tapered Vibram outsole that’s both durable and grippy across a range of surfaces. Available colorways include navy suede with tan, burgundy with dark grey, and black with grey (shown), each with a…

Dietrich OT Watch

With a distinctive design that’s inspired by nature rather than by man’s own creations, Dietrich’s OT Watch line — which stands for Organic Time — is bold, intricate, and maybe a tad divisive. Each features luminescent hands shaped like leaves, a spinning star which represents seconds, a 24-hour time disk, and a sapphire crystal lens etched on the underside with hour and minute markings capping a steel case. A modified Miyota 82S7…

Citizen Eco-Drive Professional Diver 1000M

Many dive watches are worn for style. Contrarily, the Citizen Eco-Drive Professional Diver 1000M is best reserved for actual diving. Rated, as its name suggests, to extreme depths, it’s the first to also come equipped with Citizen’s integrated solar panel dial that keeps the watch’s batteries charged up just by exposure to light — something that’s notably absent in the deep sea, but several years of reserve power more than…

HYT H0 Hydromechanical Watch

A minimalist version of their boastfully complex H1 timepiece, the HYT H0 Hydromechanical Watch hides the vast majority of its inner workings behind a curved dial, spinning two hands (for seconds and minutes) and pushing a semi-transparent, colored fluid around a glass tube bordering its face to boldly display hours. Though two openings lower down on the dial do give a modest glimpse into the bellows beneath, part of its manually-wound HYT calibre movement…

Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45 Smartwatch

Smartwatches all run more or less the same operating systems, be it watchOS on the Apple side and Android Wear for just about all others. And the Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45 Smartwatch is no different in this respect, running the latter. Where it sets itself apart is modularity, since this latest gen model lets you swap out parts — and not just straps, either, but the buckle, lugs, bezel,…

Too bad any actual practical applications of the material have so far been lacking. Bolt Threads’ Spider Silk Tie is amongst the first products to be made of the stuff, albeit not silk harvested from actual spiders but rather produced by genetically modified microorganisms that churn out the stuff at a far greater rate.
