Pairs Well With: Longines Heritage Legend Diver

Share this story:

The Longines Heritage Legend Diver is perhaps one of the most beloved watches in Longines’ current catalog—and for good reason. A near one-for-one recreation of a watch Longines produced back in the 1960s, the Legend Diver exudes mid-century cool, all the while boasting a modern build quality that one would want in a contemporary watch from a brand like Longines. But what makes the watch exceptionally great, and it’s why I like it so much, is that it’s simply an incredibly versatile watch, one that makes sense both at the beach and at the office. To that end, today we’ve paired it with some simple, classics threads—some that are modern takes of classic styles—that are as versatile as the Legend Diver is on the wrist.

Today’s post is sponsored by StockX, a live “bid/ask” marketplace for everything from sneakers to wristwatches. StockX is currently running a promotion of 10% off watches sitewide through May 7th.

Kamakura Oxford-Cloth Button-Down Shirt

No one does Americana better than the Japanese, and Kamakura is no exception. These are just like the Brooks Brothers oxfords your grandfather wore, but trimmer (though Kamakura offers a couple of different cuts should you need some extra room) and now made in Japan. Oh, and the best part? The collars have a killer roll, so they’ll frame your face and look nice when you’re wearing a tie. Kamakura

Common Projects Tennis Sneakers

Common Projects are known for their slim, classically styled leather sneakers. One of their newest models takes the design of the Adidas Rod Lover, an iconic tennis shoe, and slims the silhouette down so that they look as good paired with trousers as they do with jeans. The classic white with grey suede accents shown here is extremely versatile, and in no time they’ll become your favorite pair of sneakers. Common Projects

Apolis Indigo Wool Blazer

If you want a blazer that doesn’t feel too stuffy, then you’re going to want to take a look at the Indigo Wool Blazer from Apolis. It’s unstructured, so it’ll have a soft drape, and indigo wool fabric, milled in Italy and exclusive to Apolis, will fade over time the longer you wear the jacket. It’s the perfect grab-and-go piece for your wardrobe. Apolis

Taylor Stitch Telegraph Trousers

Navy can be a little boring, so these trousers from Taylor Stitch, shown here in Donegal Navy, inject some pop into the classic color. The fabric is speckled (our very own Zach Weiss owns the accompanying jacket, and let me tell you the cloth looks awesome) and features a bit of stretch for day-to-day comfort. These are trousers you can dress up or down with no problem. Taylor Stitch

Allyn Scura Legend Eyeglasses

Most eyeglass frames are a dime a dozen. Some are downright junk, and others can be obscenely expensive. Allyn Scura is no stranger to this problem, so it’s not surprising that they offer high-quality, California-made frames in largely classic (with a twist) styles that don’t break the bank. The Legend, shown here in light tortoiseshell, is one such pair. And if you don’t wear glasses, don’t fret. These would make for a great pair of sunglasses, too. Allyn Scura

Sid Mashburn Hoof Pick Belt

Why settle for a boring, old buckle when you can have some fun with the Hoof Pick Belt from Sid Mashburn? The Atlanta-based haberdasher is known for his clean style with a twist, and that’s exactly what this equestrian-inspired belt is. Made from bridle leather paired with the unique brass buckle, the belt will only look better with time. Sid Mashburn
