How INSTRMNT Watches Are Made

0 #

how-instrmnt-watches-are-made-00-600x360

Glasgow-based watch providers INSTRMNT launched late last year with the introduction of the INSTRMNT 01, a minimalistic watch that bears old school design elements and functionality. The cool thing about the brand is that they use one of the last remaining leather strap manufacturers in the Bavarian Forest. This particularity visual by INSTRMNT highlights how their watches are made, specifically zeroing in on the strap construction. Thick cuts of full calf leather are utilized, as the new range of wristwear now boasts fresh PVD coating and a Swiss Quartz Ronda 385H movement.

Upon checking out the video above, you can then shop INSTRMNT new collection online.

If you’re more of a digital watch fan, follow here to our recent guide on some of the best options for men.

How to make a cheap suit look good

0 #

ralph lauren suit

ralph lauren suit

 
Not everyone can afford a bespoke suit, or even a top-end ready-to-wear one. But there are many things you can do on any budget to improve the look of your tailoring.

1. Buy conservative

If a suit isn’t of the greatest quality, make sure it doesn’t bring attention to itself in any other way. So buy single-breasted, notch-lapel, 2 or 3-button, plain grey or navy suits. Bright colours or patterns might seem like a good option for a cheaper product, but they will only highlight poor materials.

2. Ignore fashion

A similar recommendation goes for fashions. Watch out for lapels that are too thin, jackets that are too short or trousers that are too skinny. Not only does this bring attention to the suit, again, but it potentially shortens the suit’s life if things become unfashionable or your tastes change. And if the suit only lasts two years you might as well have spent twice as much on one that would last four.

Remember, there’s nothing wrong with a suit that goes unnoticed. Indeed to some students of elegance, good clothing should always do that. One should give the basic impression of being well dressed, but nothing more.

3. Buy for longevity

Many readers tell me they have been following Permanent Style for years. They often recount the pleasures of investments that accumulate, building up a quality wardrobe that only gets better as good things last longer. I’m sure they would all tell you to buy the best suit you can, and then to plan for longevity.

Ways to make your suit last longer include buying two pairs of trousers; brushing it down after every wear; hanging/packing it carefully; only dry cleaning it every 6 months to a year; and not wearing it when you’re raging-steaming-falling-down-oh-there-go-my-legs drunk.

4. Have it altered

I say this all the time, but it bears repeating: find a decent alterations tailor and spend the money to have one or two adjustments made. The jacket should fit on the shoulders and neck primarily, and can then be altered in the body to fit. If there are big issues that affect the overall style of the suit – such as the width of the trousers – this might also be worth spending money on.

5. Wear decent accessories

Again, effectively a way to push the suit into the background. Don’t buy cheap, loud ties. Invest in decent English-made shoes (and look after them properly too). Perhaps find some nice little touches that can be worn every day.

A friend of mine wears a vintage watch and his grandfather’s gold cufflinks every day. The first was a birthday present, the second an heirloom. Neither cost him anything, but they elevate his business wear every single day. Such are the pleasures of being a man.

Herschel Supply for Clarks Originals Summer 2015 Desert Boot

0 #

Herschel Supply

Celebrating 65 years of the iconic Desert Boot, Clarks Originals has teamed up with Herschel Supply to produce a fresh take on the famous crepe-soled silhouette. First worn by off-duty British servicemen abroad, the Desert Boot has been doing the rounds since 1949 — it’s truly a timeless style. Herschel Supply’s rendition remains pretty much true to the classic, offered in navy and grey premium suede.
Key detailing includes a monochromatic rubber crepe sole, silicone-dipped cotton lace aglets and the introduction of a welt-stitched premium pebbled leather split tongue. A padded collar lined with quality chambray and custom interior branding round out this modern interpretation of an icon.
