There’s always been two types of Visvim heads, the ones who wear Christos and the ones who wore FBTs. Now there’s a sandal that can unite the camps. These bonkers sandals from the SS21 season feature fringe detailing and knotted accents, bringing a feeling of the folk line to the usually more urban-focused Christo. The combination of the tanned natural leather and bright yellow-sand suede is impeccable.

Spinnaker watches are steeped in the history of diving timepieces and influenced by aquatic themes. From their range, the Croft stands out to me as it’s got a large bold design that is still subtle enough to throw on with a casual outfit. With a cyclops date magnifier and seconds subdial display, the watch has a 22mm stainless steel bracelet and utilizes Japan 8218 Miyota Automatic movement.
Although their watches are reasonably priced with the Croft coming in at $400USD, you can score an extra discount for Father’s Day with a 20% discount using promo code DAD20. Available at Spinnaker

This patchwork jacket from the Soloist has a decidedly grunge feel. It’s a canvas BDU military shirt design that’s been heavy edited with applied patchwork, zippers on each side of the garment that can vary the fit. With a slim streamlined appearance, pair it with won jeans and boots for a easy all day look.

Posting this because it’s somewhat of an oddity by Rick standards. Going against the usual brown/black and grey palette, this is a pop of bright yellow and blue in a collarless flannel design. With a shawl colloar, press-stud buttons and grosgrain trim in grey at shoulders and back. Kind of an interesting design and one you won’t see often from Rick Owens considering he hasn’t done much flannel shirting before.

New Balance serves up a breakfast themed sneaker with this egg inspired 992. Breakfast is one of PaperBoy Paris’ favorite meals, and the café partners with New Balance this season to celebrate that. Naturally, the theme Is egg related, and the sneaker of choice is the much-loved 992.
The references are clear, too, with the pigskin suede uppers designed to mimic a fried egg, starting with yellow at the eyetsays to gradient hues of white underneath. The model’s tech underpinnings are untouched, though, with ENCAP® and ABZORB® in the sole for unrivalled comfort and support. As always the build quality on these made in the USA editions are top notch.
Model number M992PB1
The Nike Air Max Plus is a sneaker I can’t get away from. It’s just such a striking design but it varies a lot colorway to colorway. I’ll usually spot one or two a year I’ll want to add to my collection and this one definitely is in that category. It’s a simple gradient design with a hit of sliver on the heel and a green outline on the midsole and swoosh. Definetly one of my favorite Air Max releases in recent history.
It’s available through eBay.
AVI-8 was established in 2012 with the goal of creating timepieces that reflect the history of aviation. AVI-8 works with pilots and engineers who served in various Air Forces around the world to create products that bring authentic military detailing . One of my favorites from the line is this classic chronograph which has an aesthetic based around what might arguably be the most iconic plane from the WW2 era, the Hawker Hurricane . Anyone who’s seen that aircraft in the history books or movies will recognize the clean, bold lines which surround the dial on on the watch. The colors and graphics also celebrate the fighter plane’s unique presence.
This Hawker Hurricane watch has a classic chronograph design and is constructed with stainless steel and strapped with a genuine hand-stitched grey leather strap. The movement on the watch is provided by Japan Quartz and it features adjustable date functionality. It’s a fantastic gift idea for Father’s Day if your dad is a military buff.
