Flylow Outerwear

Winter has been wrapping its icy death grip around parts of the country this week. Thanks Polar Vortex (Jerk). Despite wicked cold temperatures and uncomfortable commutes; its ski season and there’s plenty of powder packing the slopes this year. For the record the oversized puffy down jackets are behind us too (Amen). A combination of new fabric technology and fashion forward brands has winter gear looking quite chic. Brands have slimmed down the down adding some insanely great outerwear.

One brand that we love here at The Manual is Flylow outerwear. Cool kids from the Jackson Hole to Aspen are all over it. Their successful fusion of lightweight mountain gear and warm skiwear is landmark. Essentially they do outwear that is three parts warm, ultra-light and durable. Independently owned since they established in 2004, the brand has been well known in the industry for their snug fitting ski pants. Founders Greg Steen and Dan Abrams launched the company back before the housing bust with credit cards and a dream.

It’s no surprise that their jackets are held to the same high standard as the pants. Both feature exceptional fits and venting features that allow temperature regulation while on the move. So, whether you’re traversing the slopes or braving the concrete jungle you’ll be stylish, but most of all WARM.

Our favorite Flylow pick at The Manual is the men’s Lab Coat and Compound Pant. Flylow sells both in a variety of color combinations. They will run you about $500 a piece. A little pricey … but they are super durable and easy to wear. You can also find a variety of great jackets under $500 at their online store or at listed retailers.

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.")
