The pocket watch is coming back, and I’m all for it. There’s something so masculine about a dude owning one instead of a wrist watch.
Even though it’s only just this week dipped into the 80s here, I’m already thinking well ahead into December. When I’ll finally be able to (hopefully) get out my winter coats and other paraphernalia. I have a deep love of all things cowl necked, and can’t help but eye up these scarves from Pip Robins in anticipation.
MAKR is on top of all once again with this antique brass blank key bottle opener. Not only is it super clever, but it also blends right in with the other keys on your keychain – no more souvenir or promo openers for you!
PS: Just a reminder that you have until midnight CST on July 4th to enter the MOO giveaway!

Each piece of brass Marmol Radzinger’s jewelry line is an architectural remnant from one of the firm’s projects. Handcrafted to be a perfect individual that will gradually gain a unique patina for the one wearing it. I love the extra touch of the drilled holes. (via Design Milk)

Last Saturday I was out and about and decided to reward myself (more on that later) with a new watch. The Nixon Time Teller P to be exact, my watch brand of choice. I bought my first as a 24th birthday gift to myself, an awesome skinny-strapped black leather double wrap with a rectangular electric blue face that they sadly no longer make. Shortly thereafter I stopped wearing a watch altogether because I was tired of it banging against my desk while I designed. But when I saw this shocking pink beauty with a silicone everything I knew I’d struck gold. It’s a men’s watch, which I prefer and comes in a great array of bright monotones. The thing is, I wonder if I’ll ever be able to get used to looking at my wrist for the time ever again…
