Each and everyday here at Worn & Wound, we’re on the hunt for interesting watches and useful gear. We recently came across some products that fit this bill from the folks at Shinola. Together they seemed to create an ideal solution for a summer-themed list of Father’s Day gifts. Fortunately, we were able to pick up a selection of our favorites from their Tribeca Store here in New York City. Our team was impressed with the quality imbued in each of these items, hope you are too.
If you’re anything like us, you have a wide variety of watches that range in size from dainty to behemoth. Even though this travel watch is called the Shinola Monster GMT, it hits that sweet spot of 40mm that seems to fit nearly any wrist, making it a that ideal giftable size. With a sapphire exhibition case back revealing the Sellita SW330-2 automatic movement inside, an easy-to-use push button quick release stainless steel bracelet, and an alternative woven strap made from recycled ocean plastic, you won’t even need to include a strap changing tool in your gift bag.
There are so many reasons to tote a tote. From being a more sustainable shopping solution, to simply looking stylish, a tote feels a bit more versatile, sophisticated, and confident than a beat-up old bookbag. Shinola’s Runabout Open Tote is constructed from heavy-duty washed twill canvas, obviously inspired by the durability of classic tool belts and bags. Its padded leather handles elevate its look, with just enough length to toss onto your shoulder and tuck under your arm for traveling on subways and other tight spaces. And there’s plenty of interior pockets provided for gear organization galore.
A short sleeve sweatshirt is the perfect go-to solution for those weird weather moments that early summer can bring. This breathable, yet comfy top strikes the balance and is ideal for summer nights on the beach or around the campfire. It’s crafted from 100% American French Terry cotton by Soft Goods Detroit for Shinola and is pigment garment dyed with an authentic, soft-to-the-touch vintage feel. In addition to Heather Grey, it comes in a Washed Navy and an Army Green too!
We’re always on the hunt for wallets that complement our watches with the same degree of craftsmanship and functionality. This zippered pocket-meets-card organizer solution from Shinola fits the bill. Made from all-natural leather with raw brass hardware, it’s sure to patina over time and become a product that’s completely unique to its owner.
The use cases for including a bandana in your everyday carry or countless and we won’t go through them all here. However, if you’re looking for a classy gift for someone who thinks they have it all, look no further than Shinola’s Linen Bandana in Navy Floral. It’s a lightweight 100% linen fabric, which makes it extremely stashable. And if you look closely at the pattern, you’ll find an array of watch case silhouettes throughout the pattern, a nice little nod to this obsession we share for that watch lover in your life.
Nothing screams summertime louder than sunglasses. The quality of this particular pair is immediately evident the moment you pick them up and put them on. With frames crafted from a honey-colored acetate, the lenses in Shinola’s Monster Round sunglasses have a familiar glass bottle green tint. The frame features Flexon hinges with just the right amount of springy grip. These sunglasses were made to be your go-to accessory for the season.
