Celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Ford Truck with New Flag & Anthem Collection

A Ford truck brings up memories of Americana. It all started in 1917 with the Model TT and the tradition continues today with the F-150 Raptor. The first vehicle was created a century ago by the Ford Motor Company, and this fall the truck celebrates its 100th anniversary — with a new twist. The automaker teamed up with premium menswear brand Flag & Anthem for a new Ford fashion collection.

The partners are a natural fit; both brands embody classic Americana. Ford was an innovator that forever changed the auto industry with its now-iconic and best-selling Ford trucks, while Flag & Anthem carries American pride in its DNA with its vintage-inspired creations. The companies even got Nigel Barker, photographer and America’s Next Top Model regular, to host a behind-the-scenes video for the collaboration.

Flag & Anthem designers went through vintage Ford archives, searching for inspiration for the limited-edition line, which features all of the clothing items that capture the ideals of the American man’s wardrobe: vintage-style tees, button-down shirts, distressed baseball caps, and timeless jackets. The colors of the U.S. flag — red, white, and blue — run rampant through the comfortable, easy-to-wear capsule collection.

Standout pieces include the graphic T-shirts that depict hand-painted artwork and the bomber and wax cotton jackets with custom patches that carry the Ford name. Imagine driving in your very own Ford truck while wearing the Flag & Anthem and Ford collection. Now that’s our idea of The American Dream.

Porsche, TAG Heuer team up for Carrera Chronograph honoring the 911, a timeless classic
A gorgeous timepiece in honor of a true classic
TAG Heuer Porsche watches on wheel

There are fewer sports cars as iconic and persistent as the Porsche 911. Performance has improved, and some features like natural aspiration and air cooling have gone the way of the dinosaurs -- but at its core (and in its styling), the 911 is pretty much the same rear engine beauty that Porsche unveiled back in September 1963. It is currently celebrating its 60th anniversary, as is a much-loved piece of chronography -- the TAG Heuer Carrera.

So it’s only fitting that TAG Heuer, an equally iconic Swiss watchmaker with strong racing links, has partnered up with Porsche to commemorate the German company’s flagship motor. The “Carrera Chronosprint x Porsche” is a beautiful chronograph and a fantastic bit of engineering. Its styling manages to cram in more references to the 911’s 60-year history than we can count without looking garish or overstated.

The most limited new watch in Panerai’s Navy SEALs comes bundled with a chance to be miserable on a beach.
