Consider these to be power rankings. Whether you’re looking for gift ideas or a quick upgrade for yourself, expect these to come around about once a month. You’ll find new arrivals and old favorites, especially good deals, or maybe something pricey to keep an eye on for future sales. The potential best of the best, which you may or may not have seen already. Got a tip on something that deserves to end up in the monthly Most Wanted? Send those in here. Top Photo: andrew_j_w
Cheap? Nope. But if you’re a note taker/idea-jotter who is constantly carrying around physical pen & paper, then FFF’s Field Notes Wallet might be a fantastic investment, or, gift for someone who fits that description. Includes two Field Notes notebooks and a Fisher Space Pen. Cut from a single piece of Horween leather. Five shades of leather and three colors of pen to choose from. Shown above is the straight wookie-ish Rough-Out Tan “Superfuzz” option with matte black hardware & matching space pen.
Interesting. Missed this one for yesterday’s round-up (it’s a brand new arrival). 98% cotton, 2% “stretch”, and uncontstructed. Looks like it could be a nice alternative to the Ludlow in Italian cotton, especially if a Ludlow’s arms are a little tight on you. Available in either the Bonobos Slim (which is VERY slim) or their just trim enough “Standard” fit. Not cheap to start. Fingers crossed for a sale.
Interesting but still accessible in terms of taste (and price). If you think sipping rums are a little too caramelized, and most Irish Whiskey are a little too grassy, yet still enjoy both types of liquor, then this stuff might become a new favorite. It’s an Irish, but the maturation in rum barrels really rounds off the corners. A bit like warm zucchini bread, with a certain freshness, but still savory. Bloomberg did a very nice profile on Teeling over here. Interesting that the patriarch is a teetotaler.
Dark grey bucks, minus the clunky toe, plus a very reasonable price. While not as “summery” (but still very appropriate for warm weather), dark grey bucks are much more versatile than their bone/off-white counterparts. Wear em’ with jeans now. Wear them with linen pants and a polo when it heats up. Made in Brazil, and should go on sale at some point because it’s DSW.
Appears to be Seiko’s newest designs for their trusty Seiko 5 automatic movements. A sporty 44mm diameter case, 100m water resistance, easy to read, uncluttered dial, and a unidirectional edged bezel. Big fan of the rubber strap option with that blue 0-20 segment. Also available in a standard black on black + stainless band (which would look terrific on a Bond-style NATO band), an ion-plated with red accent, and a few other design options. Stand by for an in-person.
