Garrett Leight and American designer Mark McNairy have partnered to design a new sunglass and eyeglass frames for the season. The new “Pinehurst” is a limited-edition, unisex frame that are available in sun and eye glasses. It is available in three styles, a dark gray, navy blue and a tortoise shell pattern.
Inside the arms of the frames are the following inscriptions, “Veni Vidi Vici” (“I came, I saw, I conquered” in Latin) on the left. While McNairy’s signature “TCMB” (which stands for “Taking Care of Motherf*cking Business”) motto is stamped on the tip of both sides.

Haerfest has shown its growth with its latest range, “Collection H”, this is especially seen in their H6 Classic Two Handle Tote. It is crafted from a high-end cotton twill and cowhide leathers, along with polished brass hardware, frog clip, and high-quality zippers for detail.
The interior features a fully lined main compartment with open pockets holds all necessities and 15″ laptop. While a smaller internal zip pocket provides an extra level of secure storage. For functional movement and stability, the handles are designed with their Ring and Stud system for easy over the shoulder wearability or hand carrying.

Belts come in many shapes, sizes and are made with a variety of materials. While a classic leather belt is always a good go-to piece, the woven belt can add a touch of character to your outfit, because the woven design looks great in any colour and pattern. A great feature that some woven belts have is the flexible sizing, which means you don’t have to worry about finding the right size. We’ve selected 4 woven belts in colours that we believe should be in every man’s wardrobe, they are listed below. Did we mention that the buckle has to look great too?
Anderson’s – $190 – This sophisticated 3.5cm belt is made in Italy from high-quality leather. Further, the brown colour looks great when paired with denim and with trousers. Also the buckle looks really great. We recommend you size up.
Tod’s – $265 – This is another Italian made belt that is executed in a unique woven pattern. Like the Anderson belt it measures in at 3.5cm but it has a flexible sizing, meaning you don’t have to worry about having the absolutely right size, but don’t get it too small or too big either.
Mulberry – $295 – This supple black leather belt is 3cm in width and is incredibly polished. Mulberry’s woven belt would look great dressed up or dressed down in black jeans or grey trousers.
Loro Piana – $490 – This piece is the more casual of the bunch but it doesn’t lack in quality or taste. The combination of woven cotton and suede add texture to any outfit and looks great against lighter fabrics. This belt is also made in Italy.
The Switzerland made Mondaine time pieces have one clear style to them, clean. This summer, swap the typical stainless steel band and leather strap for a lighter NATO strap. We particularly love Mondaine’s Evo watch, not only is the dial easy to read but delightful to look at. Further, the quartz movement and water-resistant mineral glass case is durable and reliable.
