My Christmas wishlist might just become YOUR Christmas wishlist

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:

This watch is by Linjer and the model is The Minimalist, Gunmetal/Navy

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!

Check it out here and check out the Linjer site here.

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)
