Bonobos Delivers with Its New Organic Chinos – In An Improved Skinny Fit

The brand that makes your favorite chinos has done it again – Bonobos is introducing yet another phenomenal-fitting pair of men’s chinos made for every occasion this spring, summer 7 beyond. The launch of the Bonobos Stretch Organic Cotton Chino, now in a new skinny fit for those who prefer a “European” fit option, could signal the arrival of your new favorite chinos to wear to the office and on the weekend.

It only makes sense that a brand founded on the idea that men need better-fitting pants continues to expand to give guys multiple fit options, and multiple is putting it lightly. Bonobos now offers nearly 300 size and fit combinations across the board. As Bonobos says, they’re seeking to be the only brand to serve up “a chino for every occasion.”

“Anytime we set out to develop a new product, there are two main things we think about: The needs of our customers, and how we can continue to evolve our promise on fit and product innovation,” said Bonobos Senior Director of Merchandising Kate Fulk. “The launch of the Stretch Organic Cotton Chino introduces our first foray into a skinny fit, something we heard customers inquiring about as well as the sustained success of our tailored fit pant.”

And that works more than fine for us – Bonobos chinos can be worn with everything from a white slub tee and canvas high-top sneakers to a classic navy blazer and a white Oxford shirt.  In the case of the Stretch Organic Cotton Chinos, (which you can also get in Tailored, Slim or Athletic fits), it’s the durable construction that makes them so versatile. These come in a blend of organic cotton twill (increasingly important in the menswear world) and elastane for ease of movement.

At only $68, they’re a steal for their utility, and the fit should more than accommodate guys who want a sleeker look – they feature a leg opening that’s one-and-a-half inches slimmer than the brand’s Tailored fit.

The use of durable cotton twill makes them at once old-school (similar fabric has been used in chinos for decades), and yet also casual and modern . Again, see our directive to wear them with a crisp white tee or a denim shirt and suede chukka boots.

Sizes for the Stretch Organic Cotton Chinos also run up to a size 40 waist; it would seem that Bonobos really has thought of everything when it comes to making a pair of chinos you can live in all summer and beyond.

This is everything new about the TAG Heuer Aquaracer
TAG Heuer gives its Aquaracer Professional 300 some enhancements
TAG Heuer Aquaracer 300 Pro 2024

TAG Heuer's resurgence persists. After a Glassbox redesign of the Carrera Chronograph and a revival of the original Formula 1 watch, the brand has now cast its gaze toward the Aquaracer. Like a kid at the back of the class who is super smart but hasn't been given the opportunity to live up to his full potential, the Aquaracer Professional 300 always felt like it lagged behind its peers a bit. Well, Tag Heuer has brought it up to the front of the class and given it a big makeover.

While the 2022 update introduced several enhancements such as new dials, movements, and updated case and bracelet designs, the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 has once again undergone a transformation with smaller case sizes, better movements, and more aesthetically pleasing dials.

G-Shock finally gives some attention to ‘Air’ in its Master of G series
G-Shock releases GRAVITYMASTER GR-B300, inspired by airplane cockpits
G-Shock Gravitymaster colors

G-Shock is not known as a brand that makes watches for pilots, or anything aviation-inspired; those brands are usually Longines, IWC, or even Zenith. Generally, when you think of G-Shock, you probably imagine a mud-covered man running through the forest when it's pouring rain, checking his watch as he splashes through puddles with a sweat-covered brow. However, the brand has surprised us all.

Following a brief break since the launch of the GR-B200 in August 2020, the GRAVITYMASTER GR-B300 has been released this year. While G-Shock expanded the Master of G series last year, celebrating the land category with Mudman, Mudmaster, and Rangeman, we can finally take to the skies and move into the "Air" category with the newest release, screaming "up, up, and away" in the process. Not only is the GRAVITYMASTER GR-B300 a celebration of aviation, but it draws serious inspiration from supersonic jets and modern aircraft with its sleek design. As aviation itself advances, so too must pilot watches and the new GRAVITYMASTER GRB-300 exemplifies this to a T.

Oris drops an all-black Divers Sixty-Five for 120th anniversary
Oris 2024 Holstein edition

When you're between the ages of 1 and, let's say, 13, birthdays are a big deal; your friends come over, there's a big cake and candles, perhaps a magician or a clown shows up to scare everyone, and if you're lucky, it takes place at a roller rink or a bowling alley. Well, Oris watches are turning 120, meaning they've matured quite a bit since the days of party hats and streamers. The Swiss watchmaker has released a Hölstein Edition (named after its hometown) every year for the past five years in order to celebrate its anniversary, with just 250 pieces. Oris uses these Hölstein Editions every year to create some truly head-turning watches, and this year is no different.
Oris watches 2024 Hölstein Edition: As black as a watch can get

Oris watches made 2024 even more special since they hit the big 1-2-0 and gave their ever-popular retro dive watch, the Divers Sixty-Five, an all-black makeover. And when we say "all black," we literally mean all black with not an accent color in sight minus the date window, which is printed in white (after reading that, Batman said, "No, thanks.")
