Alex Crane, the brand behind some of my favorite basics, recently launched their Overdye Collection — and it’s brilliant. Instead of trying to start from scratch, the design team behind Alex Crane utilized the existing (and extremely popular) Lines pattern in a new way. By overdying this existing fabric (as the name suggests), it adds an entirely new dimension and product offering, at once modernizing the Lines pattern while also being its own unique option entirely. Currently, this collection includes a pants and short option, available in either Chai (a tannish brown) and Dusk (a deep navy).


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.
