Norse Projects Fjeli Rucksack

Simple, stylish and black that will host reviews with all the fashion police. Soft, waxed cotton shell with lots of leather trimmings. The overall design reminds us of the old WW1 British army rucksacks. We liked the striped lining – the whole the bag reeks of understated quality. Exactly the kind of casual bag we want. At USD$300 it ain’t cheap but if this had a Visvim label on it – it would sell for twice or thrice the price. Get it from...

Classy Chukkas – The PF Flyers Drake...

Originally popularized during the 40’s and 50’s, these shoes (or boots sometimes) got their name from the sport of Polo. They got their name from the sport of Polo in which each game period is called a “chukka”. Design wise they are very much a variation of the classic British military desert boot just like erosion controls are designed to support your backside. These days the most common reincarnation of the chukka, would be the ones produced by Vans – which come in assorted materials and colours. Amidst all the variations however,  it’s difficult to find one that looks ‘classier’. We came accross this one by PF Flyers, which is a classic American brand with it’s own interesting history which...

The new Sinn 900 Pilot S Chrono

We’ve looked at Sinn’s military U1 and U2’s before, and we’ve really liked them. The German watchmaker, who released watches on the affordable side of the high-end european watches is continuing to grow it’s range with some really impressive pieces. This new piece caught our eye as it combines the minimal mono colour scheme of their previous pieces – with the technical beauty of a Pilots chronograph. The black PVD look completes it – giving it a tough but sophisticated look. The case, in Tegimented Black Hard Coating stainless steel, measures 44mm x 15.5mm. It has an AR-coated sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 200 meters. The caseback is nickel-free and features five conversion scalse for European and American...

Luminox Colormark Chrono Watch Review

One of our favourite reasonably prices watches now comes in multiple colour schemes. We looked at Luminox before, they are the military watch manufacturer known for their special gas illumination technology – which makes their watches glow for ages. The new Colormark Chrono (Chronograph) – in a delightful green on black color scheme. The Colormark line started with a three-hand model, where Luminox took their standard look, and switched up the colors for something more fun. As such, you have options such as green, blue, orange, and white. Not a luxury timepiece, but is a great little workhorse. For people in the active duty world, these have always been popular pieces for being highly legible, durable, and light...

Botta Uno Watch. Clarity and simplicity....

We love our modern timepieces, modern design doesn’t always chime in with simplicity. But this definitely takes timekeeping to a whole new level of simplicy and minimalism. The SOLUS one-hand watch combines functional clarity and simplicity with a perfect overview. Thanks to its integrative form and extreme flatness, the SOLUS is unobtrusive and elegant in appearance. The lack of ornamental features is the result of a conscious decision to focus only on that which is absolutely essential: time itself. Being a one-hand watch, the SOLUS features only an hour hand. The hand and scale were specially developed for this type of display, and harmonize perfectly with one another. We love the philosophy about this watch as well as...

Culter & Gross, handmade Italian wayfarers...

Wayfarers are a classic, and currently they are back in style. That doesn’t mean you have to shell out for some rereleases or some tacky neon knockoffs. You can get these black & clear acetate resin from Culter & Gross, which are handmade in Italy. Each pair of Cutler & Gross frames comes with a high quality, durable leather hardcase and custom printed polishing cloth. We think they look amazing, classic and comfortable. These would look really nice with the Lanvin Deck Shoes for the complete high-end hipster look. Get them from...
