The way Otis James expertly crafts his ties and hats isn’t seen too much these days. Nothing is automated, there are no shortcuts, and everything is finished by hand. Griffin approached him to collaborate on a line of iPhone Sleeves (for the 4S and the 5, so you’re good regardless of what model you have), and he brought his standard attention to detail and craftsmanship to the line of wool/linen/silk/cotton (it varies depending on which style you want) sleeves. Each sleeve holds your iPhone, obviously, but there’s also a card pocket that can double as headphone storage. They’re the perfect contrast to the mass-produced, technologically advanced device they’re designed to store.

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.
