Pair up your favorite Mott and Bow denim with your new favorite Oxford shirt — also from Mott and Bow, as luck would have it. As of this week, the quick-growing E-commerce retailer is expanding its product line once again, making them a brand to watch, shop and wear as often as you can.

Founded by Alejandro Chanin — who grew up in a family of denim makers and launched the brand in New York City — Mott and Bow has made waves in the menswear industry for its focus on quality, affordability and a range of styles Those styles include everything from classic light wash denim to twill denim and cotton denim shirts — all versatile, stylish and again affordable.

The introduction of Oxfords in seven (yes, seven!) colors represents another step forward for the brand.The shirts themselves are made from 100 percent Italian cotton from the famed Albiate mill — as good a place to go as any when producing high-quality shirts.

The new Oxford is also offered in two collar options (a traditional button-down collar and a more continental spread collar). Either should wear with ease on its own or underneath any number of summer style staples — think a khaki cotton blazer and slim grey chinos for the work week and then classic white canvas sneakers and dark denim for a casual weekend outing.

It’s feasible that you could put together the main pieces of your daily ensemble with only Mott and Bow pieces. The brand’s classic, quality denim — offered in fits from Skinny to a straight cut — would be a perfect match for one of these easily wearable Oxfords, especially in classic white.

And as pleasing as they are aesthetically, the shirts feature design nuances that are fitting, too. Take the lowered second button to avoid constricting your neck, or the bottom button — placed proportionately based on the size of the shirt. The brand also designed these shirts to be worn tucked in or untucked — a helpful design touch that should be appreciated by guys who like to wear their Oxford shirts casually. To wit: Take the navy Oxford, pair it up with slim grey denim and brown leather boots, and wear it untucked to an outdoor festival or concert this summer.

If you’re feeling a little more classic, pair the light blue Oxford with khaki chinos and a lightweight navy blazer for easy summer style — with Oxfords this affordably priced (just $89), consider your summer (and fall, and winter) shirting all set.  Just don’t forget to stock up on Mott and Bow denim as you shop the brand’s new shirting — you can dig it, right?

All new Rolex 1908 men’s watch leans into timeless Rolex styling and we can’t get enough of it
You won't stop staring at it, but that has nothing to do with what time it is
The Rolex Perpetual 1908

The world’s most desirable watch brand, Rolex, is paying homage to its long and storied history with a new series of watches. The new Rolex watch takes inspiration from the vintage timepieces that made the luxury brand what it is today. So expect an almost impossibly slim profile, smaller dimensions than modern men’s watches, and large numbers. Another nice vintage touch is the lack of a central seconds hand, with a dedicated sub-dial being used instead.

Rolex’s main inspiration when creating the Perpetual 1908 is the original Oyster Perpetual from 1931. While its 39mm diameter may be a little more petit than the 45+ mm dive watches that have been in vogue over the last few decades, it’s actually somewhat of a compromise. Many classic men’s watches are rocking 34mm or 36mm cases.

We found those iconic Deion Sanders sunglasses, and they’re only $67
Look like Prime, stay winnin' like Prime
Deion Sanders wearing Blenders

There are a lot of things that Deion Sanders is good at: baseball, football, and coaching the latter, for instance. But one that he is excelling at off the field is promotion. Sure, he is a name and a face, and it seems like it would be easy. But when you develop your own sunglasses with a brand like Blenders, you feel the need to promote harder than usual. And now, you can snatch up a pair of these viral sunglasses yourself but don't expect them to show up on your doorstep as fast as they went viral.

Creating a viral sensation
Before his Colorado football team took the field and triumphed over rival Colorado State in a double overtime victory, his entire team showed out with their own pair of Prime 21s, the new collaboration between "Neon" Deion and Blenders sunglasses. Of course, that is never enough, as he gifted big names in sports like Stephen A. Smith (sports TV host) and Dwayne Johnson (former wrestler and football monster himself) a pair of their own to promote to their giant followings. Not to mention, another commentator called him out before the game for wearing glasses in interviews. We're not saying it was orchestrated, but the timing was perfect.

ZENITH Watches DEFY Extreme Carl Cox edition lands September 25, limited to 100 watches, priced at $30,100
There are only 100 pieces AND you get to meet Carl Cox
ZENITH Defy Extreme Carl Cox watch

Luxury watch enthusiasts, mark your calendars! ZENITH is set to release a horological marvel that's bound to send ripples through the world of timekeeping. The DEFY Extreme Carl Cox edition from ZENITH watches, a limited masterpiece, is slated to land on September 25. With only 100 pieces available and priced at a sumptuous $30,100, this timepiece is a tribute to both precision and fashionable aesthetics.
A fusion of craftsmanship: The ZENITH DEFY Extreme Carl Cox Edition
ZENITH's collaboration with Carl Cox, an ambassador for the brand, has given birth to an extraordinary creation. At the heart of this men's watch beats the most rugged and fastest 1/100th of a second chronograph, setting the tempo for accuracy that is second to none. But this watch is not just about attention to detail; it's also a nod to Carl Cox's musical heritage. The design takes cues from his favorite set of turntables, seamlessly blending the worlds of horology and music. The chronograph sub-counters have fine circular ridges that look like vinyl records, and the one at 9 o’clock has a Carl Cox logo on it. The number of sub-counters, three, also reflects Cox’s pioneering three-deck DJing style.

The ZENITH DEFY Extreme Carl Cox edition is a stunning watch that combines the best of both worlds: a classic design with a modern twist. This watch features a 45mm matte microblasted stainless steel and yellow gold case, with a 12-sided yellow gold insert under the bezel and crown guards. This blend of materials exudes a minimalistic and retro-futuristic look; it's a visual masterpiece that will undoubtedly turn heads. The case is water-resistant to 200m and has a screw-down crown for added security. The dial is open-worked, revealing the intricate workings of the El Primero 9004 in-house calibre, a chronometer-certified movement that boasts a dual regulating organ, one for timekeeping and one for the chronograph.
