Looking For A Proper “Shacket”To Get You Through The Transitional Seasons? Look No Further Than The Standard H Willys Shirt Jacket

Whether you’re a devoted podcast consumer, sartorial savant, or abreast of the current happenings within our tiny world that is the watch community, you may have heard of STANDARD H. Founded by Wesley Smith, the brand has evolved into a bi-weekly must-download podcast that hosts entrepreneurs from all sorts of industries, as well as a thriving automotive-inspired apparel brand. Their brand mantra, “For Those With Drive” is a double entendre that speaks to the entire STANDARD H ethos.


Adding to their evolving collection of apparel such as the Avant T, their flagship everyday t-shirt, and the Targa Florio, a double breasted jacket inspired by British tailoring and Italian style, STANDARD H has recently announced the addition of the Willys Shirt Jacket. Inspired by the Willys military jeep from the 1940s, the Willys Shirt Jacket takes on the utilitarian approach, sporting 2 large button-closure chest pockets, and 2 large interior pockets (heavy co-sign). Military green, a common colorway used within the STANDARD H collection, is the appropriate fabric complexion given the garment’s namesake.


If you’ve been searching for a piece of apparel to throw over a t-shirt during the brisk Spring nights, or a proper layering piece for the colder seasons that lie far ahead (let’s keep it that way for now), then check out the Willys Shirt Jacket from STANDARD H. If you also happen to be in the SF area this weekend, swing by their booth at our annual WindUp San Francisco Show at the Terra Gallery, and say hello.

Porsche Presents Analogue Never Dies

Analog is where it’s at. We are a publication that mostly covers mechanical watches after all. Porsche, like several household named watch and camera brands, makes beautifully designed products that stand the test of time. In a recently published article and video entitled Analogue Never Dies within Porsche’s Culture Stories journal, photographer Johannes Huwe celebrates his enthusiasm and attraction for all things analog, including his beloved 1958 Leica M2. There’s no surprise that Huwe’s passion for analog objects extends towards watches as he can be seen rocking a vintage Rolex in the video above. It’s somewhat hard to identify, but it seems like it’s a vintage Submariner. The only peculiar thing about it however, is the pressure clasp equipped on the steel bracelet in favor of a flip-lock clasp. Either way, you should check out the video above if you’re into classic Porsches and Leica film cameras. Let us know in the comments below if you agree with Johannes Huwe’s sentiment and if you know what watch he’s wearing.

New Porsche 911 GT2 RS Spotted?

Via Road & Track

In a Road & Track article published this week, a video displayed a host of Porsches making their way around the Nürburgring track. Every test run seemed to be your typical Porsche model making its rounds, but towards the end, there seemed to be a different beast hugging each corner and roaring to its own distinct tune. Could it be the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS? The folks over at Road & Track seem to think so.

The predecessor to this potential new 911 GT2 RS blew the previous track record out of the water, completing the 12.9 mile track in 6 minutes and 43 seconds. The jury is still out as to what sort of mechanical and structural upgrades the new 911 GT2 RS will be accompanied with, but you can bet that the folks over at Porsche are aiming to out-do themselves at Nürburgring once the car is ready.

Tactile Turn’s New Seasonal Release Aims To Gamify The Side Click Pen 

Via Tactile Turn

In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death, taxes, and a seasonal release from Tactile Turn. This time around, this exceptional pen manufacturer is tapping into the old school video game vibe. You know, the blocky on-screen pixels and game cartridges that need that occasional harsh puff of air before plugging into the game console. The 8-Bit Side Click Pen takes after an actual game cartridge with its muted gray body, saturated orange accents, and a “Reset” wordmark aptly adjacent to the retraction button. Familiar features including a titanium construction and Cerakote body finish are also present. The Tactile Turn 8-Bit is available in both Side Click and Slim Side Click models, as well as the three different body lengths that should cater to everyone’s instrument preferences. Tactile Turn


The Yin and Yang of Gerry Lopez

Once in a while, Patagonia releases some of its documentary gems on its YouTube channel. A favorite of ours called Mountain of Storms has been streaming for almost a couple of years now, and thankfully there’s no sign of it heading back into the Patagonia vault anytime soon. Patagonia Films debuted a film a while back dedicated to surf icon, Gerry Lopez, and it already has the makings of a classic. Produced and directed by Stacy Peralta, the award winning documentary looks into the life of one of surfing’s enigmatic heroes. Nicknamed Mr. Pipeline, Lopez has done everything you can possibly do in the world of surfing. From shaping to riding some of the gnarliest waves on the planet, and even dabbling in journalism, this documentary is a window into who Lopez exactly was and is a perfect pairing to his best-selling book, Surf Is Where You Find It. You can watch The Yin & Yang of Gerry Lopez in its entirety above.
