First up is:
1) A Linjer Watch – “The Minimalist” in Gunmetal/Navy
Until yesterday, I’d never heard of this brand. I saw an ad on my Facebook feed for The Hustle magazine and this awesome article: This Startup is Successfully Disrupting The $19 Billion Watch Industry
From the Hustle article by Sam Parr:
When it came to buying watches and leather goods, they were tired of choosing between disposable fast fashion and overpriced luxury products. They couldn’t find well-made, well-designed products at a fair price point – that didn’t sport an obnoxious logo.
Look at this beauty from the Linjer website:
I love the idea behind this watch and the company that makes it.
I mean who doesn’t want to own a beautiful, minimal watch that doesn’t have a logo on it?
And that isn’t that expensive for a good watch? $249 isn’t that bad for a decent watch.
And look at those reviews! 154 five star reviews at the time of writing!
2) SuitSupply 100% Cashmere Navy Overcoat – £499
It’s a bit pricey for my actual wishlist, so I might have to go down to the lower model – pure wool – instead (£299).
This came into my inbox from SuitSupply marketing this morning.

3) Some new socks!
This may sound boring….but I’m 38 years old now and I genuinely want some new socks!
I don’t know about you but I lose socks all the time and they become worn out after 10-20 washes.
I’d like some socks that last a bit longer and, at the upper end, they’re quite expensive.
Compared to Uniqlo and H&M where you can get 3 pairs of socks for £10, at the upper end, they can be £20 per pair and above.
What do you get for this huge increase? I’m not sure but I want to find out.
So I’m going to start at New and Lingwood, makers of fine socks.
Here’s a photo of some of their socks:
(I’m going to do a post soon on finding the perfect socks)
