Every day, our team filters through hundreds of style articles, clothing pieces, collection launches, brand parties, blogger fads, runway shows, fashion shoots, lookbooks and many, many more stimuli to stay on top of what’s hot in men’s fashion. In spite of all that noise, we’ll keep things simple here: just four things we’re into right now.
Montblanc 1858 Geosphere
The pioneers of exploration relied on timepieces as life or death tools in the world’s harshest conditions. And while the majority of us won’t necessarily have that need, it’s good to know that a watch can handle it all if you need it to. Of course, it doesn’t hurt if the timepiece is also as attractive as Montblanc’s Geosphere 1858. Built to commemorate the 160th anniversary of their in-house manufacture Minerva, the Geosphere 1858 is meant to pay tribute to the mountaineers who risked their livelihood to explore the ends of the earth. The timepiece features an intricate world-time complication that sees two domed globes, denoting two hemispheres, which spin in opposite directions to complete a full rotation in 24 hours. The result is a steel and ceramic top-notch timepiece, designed for those who travel the world. — Gear Patrol

Taking its iconic 1000 Mile Boot pattern, Wolverine created a lighter, more flexible version for a 1000 Mile Original Sneaker. Handmade in the US, just like the boot, the sneaker can go a bit more casual without sacrificing that supreme handmade quality you expect from Wolverine.

Bellroy Shift Backpack
A technical commuter bag should be built to withstand unintended weather incidents. Bellroy has refined this in what they dub a “super-commuter pack” for the Shift Backpack. Made from water-resistant Venture-weave polyester and leather, the sleek bag can go from the office to the streets without missing a beat.
