Ace & Everett’s Sock Debut

Now that fall is upon us it is time to start dipping back into that sock drawer. Bet you haven’t seen some of those pairs since March! But do yourself a favor and take sock stock. How many have holes? How many lost elasticity? Yep, we figured. Luckily there is a new accessories company out there with socks made right here in the USA that will be the perfect replacement.

Ace & Everett is a new brand created by two brothers who are rolling out socks and pocket squares for now. All of their socks are knitted in High Point, North Carolina with Supima cotton. As co-founder Sage Disch explained to us, “Our mill, Harriss & Covington, employs 250 people in the depressed Highpoint economy and we hope to increase that number as our production picks up. Our main objective is to support American manufacturing and through that, provide quality jobs.” That’s what we like to hear at The Manual!

Named after the founder’s grandfather, Raymond Everett Disch Sr, who was nicknamed, ‘Ace’ for his attention to detail and wicked sense of humor, the brothers launched a Kickstarter last March and were funded in thirty days. Well done boys.

The brand is based in the historic garment district of New York City and their socks are definitely not for the somber dresser. We appreciate the colors and graphics that will certainly give a little pep to our step this fall.

Additionally, a blue-dialed Complete Calendar edition, which is also encased in black ceramic, is available. The new models all feature a brushed ceramic case and bracelet, but they stay true to the original Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe line.

Saucony running shoes: The Triumph 22 makes every run easy
Saucony Triumph 22 morning picture


Last summer, I discovered Zone 2 running. The method — involving easy paces and a lowered heartrate — made the sport fun again, all while building my endurance and fat-burning capability. Runs were no longer taxing workouts. Instead, I settled into a comfortable pace, took in the scenery, and enjoyed myself.

As you likely know, Prime Day will officially run from July 16 to July 17, with some incredible deals available for Prime-only members. That's exactly what's happening with this next deal, which has us chomping at the bit. The Citizen Eco-Drive Weekender Brycen Chronograph Watch -- try saying that three times fast -- is sleek, attractive, and will be available for a crazy good price on July 16 and July 17. Instead of $425, it will be only $170, saving you a whopping $255. You're probably wondering why we're sharing it early. Well, that's because it's an invitation-only Prime deal. What does that mean? You have to request an invite on the store page, and on the appropriate dates, you'll receive an email with an option to buy. If you like what you see, request that invite because not everyone will get one.

How does the "invite-only" Prime deal process work?
The deal in question will be available for a limited time, though we won't know how long until Amazon starts sending out the exclusive invites. You must be an active Prime Member to take advantage of this offer, so keep that in mind. We have the deal info, so we know how much the Citizen Eco-Drive Weekender Brycen Chronograph watch will cost — it's $255 off down to $170 instead of the regular $425.
