Disregard Abercrombie’s um, questionable retail aesthetic for a second, what with it’s topless male ab monkeys brand reps, choking perfumed air and pumping David Guetta tracks. Fact of the matter is, some of their threads are pretty sweet. Take the Mount Marcy pants for instance. Lightweight khaki, drawstring waist, and loose cut make them great for these hot months. They’re the kind of pant you’d want to take out on the boat or out to the BBQ. They are also the kind of pant you wouldn’t wear with popped-collar polo, simply because you wouldn’t wear a popped-collar polo as that’s a big no-no, like making out with your cousin.


Vaer has been one of our favorite watchmakers for as long as we can remember because they produce new, classic watches based on iconic designs. Case in point, the Vaer G5 Meridian watch you see here. This timepiece is a 1950s-inspired 20ATM automatic watch that’s USA-assembled, dual timezone, built with ocean-ready functionality, self-winding and the brand’s first true GMT (the latest version of their core dive watch design). What’s more, it pays homage to other watches that are incredibly more expensive or hard to come by whilst also adding new aspects that makes this Vaer G5 Meridian watch more desirable than the other options in our opinion.
