Last time we showed you Black Manufacturing, we didn’t know when we might see something new from the high quality, limited run brand. This time, we’re telling you to strike while the iron is hot, because they just dropped their holiday capsule with a run of high-quality parkas that aren’t messing around.

Every article of clothing in the Black Mfg closet is understated and simple, but carries the kind of intricate care and detail that makes unwrapping your new coat a trip into checking every stitch and corner for something you missed. It’s a special tag on the pocket, or a stitching pattern on the cuff, that expresses the time that went into each jacket or shirt.

High-quality materials? Adam Fous, Creative Director for Black Mfg, doesn’t know how to make clothing any other way. That jacket might look grey, but that would be a serious understatement, since the outer material is actually quilted Japanese selvage chambray. Boom.

YYK is great for the zippers on your dad’s jeans, but these jackets are equipped with Riri M8 two-way zippers, for an extra dash of luxury every time you put it on or take it off. All the trim and cord locks are premium leather, too; no cutting corners here.

And pockets? Oh yeah, there are pockets. The kind of pockets that hold your junk, your hands, and your gadgets, with plenty of room to spare for extra gloves and scarves, tucked neatly behind sturdy snap closures.

You can choose from three different colors of parka over at Black Manufacturing.

Doxa’s Sub 200T watch is a new, smaller version of the Classic 300 design
Doxa introduces smaller version of Sub 300
Doxa Sub 200T series

Doxa watches aren't exactly the word on the tip of anyone's tongue when they think of their favorite brands; however, they have developed their own community, and some might dub them a cult following. The brand recently unveiled its latest Doxa watch, the Sub 200T which has sent a lightning strike through the hearts of fans, as it's unmistakably more compact than the iconic 300T and 600T models. The lack of smaller options has always been a common complaint among fans of the brand, and with consumer behavior veering more and more in this direction, it's no surprise that the latest iteration is just 39mm. The iconic design of the Classic 300 has been shrunk down to something more compact, sleek, and contemporary.
The new Doxa Sub 200T has a color for every taste

On top of that, the kaleidoscope of color options available from Doxa watches will surely satisfy every taste, from those who like bright and sporty models to those who prefer something a little more classic and subdued. The dial features a sunray-finished design with a luminous sunburst effect, and it comes with two strap options: a stainless steel bracelet with a "beads of rice" design and an FKM rubber strap that comes with folding clasps and ratcheting wetsuit extensions.

Hublot’s sapphire Big Bang gets an icy new color
Hublot reveals new Big Bang in Glacier Blue
Hublot Big Bang in Glacier Blue

The newest addition to the Hublot MP-11 collection is a formidable presence, measuring a whopping 45mm in diameter and 14.4mm in thickness, so you'll need some major confidence if you want to sport this beast on your wrist. The inaugural Sapphire Big Bang was introduced in 2016 and since then the brand has delighted fans with an array of color iterations, from other sapphire colors to purple and orange. Now, Glacier Blue has been introduced, just in time to keep you cool this summer (in attitude, not temperature, unfortunately.)
Hublot: The Big Bang MP-11 in Glacier Blue

This Big Bang MP-11 features a 14-day power reserve, which is achieved through seven series-coupled barrels arranged in a horizontal configuration, and all of that can be viewed by the wearer. The truly vibrant Glacier Blue (seriously, the blue is so bright you'll feel like you're about to start seeing your breath) is made with a fresh chemical composition but still shares the same properties as sapphire: luminous, and able to withstand scratches.
Technical specifications
This Hublot watch will leave you completely mesmerized for several hours before you even think about the technical specifications, though there are some exceptional details to go over. Inside this MP-11 is the HUB9011 Manufacture manual-winding skeleton power reserve movement. As we mentioned above, there are seven series-coupled barrels, but they've been arranged in a coaxial and vertical configuration so the watch is able to maintain a super slim profile of just 10.9mm. All tied together like a bow on top is the blue transparent structured rubber strap with a titanium deployant buckle clasp.
