Minimal pieces that are both functional and fashionable, are what most people seek for when looking for the perfect watch, and Daniel Wellington delivers just that! Quickly establishing a name for themselves as one of Sweden’s most popular watch brands for both men and women, Daniel Wellington has received a wide acclaim from top fashion magazines, experts and blogs.
What really makes this watch company stand out is that they also carry a nice variety of straps that are available, allowing you to effortlessly change your strap depending on your mood, occasion and the season. By keeping the watch range stripped back and focusing instead on allowing you to adapt this one initial watch face, you suddenly have endless versatility and a plethora of options available to you.
The debut watch style for men has a face diameter of 40mm, which is masculine but not overpowering. It also features Quartz Japan citizen 1L22 movement and is water resistant. It is available in both silver or rose gold casing, allowing you to adjust for your preference.
We hate Chicago winters as much as the next guy. Brutal weather and shorter days are a drag, but one thing we love about the changing seasons is the versatility it brings to our wardrobes. Fall and Winter Lookbooks are often the most dynamic, and this year we have stocked some amazing pieces to help fight the winter blues. Here is a look at some of our favorite fall labels.
Creep by Hiroshi Awai | Quilted Down Shirt
This Japanese label has been on our radar for a while, but this season we're especially impressed. The down shirt is near perfect. It's design is clean, it's lightweight, it's warm, and it looks great solo or layered. We stocked it in classic colors (dull navy and army green), because this is one piece that will be in your closet for a while.
The Unbranded Brand | 16 oz Raw Selvedge Denim
The Unbranded Brand offers a great option for selvedge denim lovers who don't want to drop a fortune. High quality, and rope dyed to give them a softer touch and more beautiful color. They strip their jeans of all the fancy washes and details, leaving the simplest form of clean, raw denim. Here, Anthony wears the 16 oz Skinny Fit, but we also carry them in 21 oz, straight leg, and chino varieties.
Daniel Wellington | Bristol Watch in Silver
We love these watches for their sophistication and simplicity. They are made to match your entire wardrobe, with interchangeable bands for every occasion.
Red Wing | 9075 Moc Toe Boot
We've always had a special place in our heart for Red Wing shoes. That goes for the 9075, especially. This is one of their oldest styles, and an icon of the brand. It is sturdy and comfortable, it matches just about everything in your closet, and it is guaranteed to keep your feet warm all winter long.
