Heritage jean brand Levi’s is giving grown men a chance to evolve their fan pride with sports-inspired apparel that looks mature and cool. The brand first dipped its toes into the sports world with an NFL Collection of clothing that mixed team pride with everyday clothing that straight-up looked stylish and felt like quality apparel (not those cheap jersey shirts sold at stadiums).

As radical as this was, it left NBA fans with nada.

… Until now.

Levi’s launched its first-ever Levi’s NBA Collection for five teams: the Golden State Warriors, New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls, Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers. If your favorite team isn’t on this list, don’t worry. Levi’s did a similar roll out with its NFL Collection, starting small and then expanding to every team in the league.

The NBA Collection was designed for the fan looking to express their personal style, without sacrificing team spirit— making use of iconic Levi’s silhouettes and pops of team branding.

Anchored by a sweet Trucker Jacket, the full NBA Collection ranges from $78-$400, and features vintage cues like chain stitching and basketball-inspired leather patches.

Alongside the Trucker Jacket is a classic crewneck piece that has team chenille applique, a nylon Club Coat with team prints, a western shirt with team logo and colors, and a leather Sherpa that puts a vogue twist on today’s NBA team logos.

Levi’s is selling the collection only at its online store, and brick-and-mortar retailers Undefeated, RSVP Gallery, Concepts, and Bosk.

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.
