TEAMS Havaianas

Unless you’ve been living in a cave with your eyes shut and your fingers in your ears, you know the 2010 World Cup is a scant few weeks away.  This means it’s time to gear up and show your colors.  Start with Havaianas’ TEAM line of flip-flop sandals: each pair is emblazoned with a certain country’s livery.    While they broadcast your fanaticism proudly, they won’t wake you up for the live telecast of the games.   You’ll need a little alarm clock and a lot of dedication for that.


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.
