This Streetwear and Flip-Flops Collab Is Everything You Need in 2022

Here’s one way to add some style to your step.

For its 100th anniversary, New Era has teamed up with iconic Brazilian footwear brand, Havaianas, to create a capsule collection of bucket hats, trucker hats, classic caps, and of courseflip flops.

The collection encapsulates New Era’s street style cool and Havianas’ classic, laid-back, Hawaiian vibe we all know and love. It’s the perfect addition to your closet, something we’re all craving in the year of quarantine.

Fashion-forward pieces include a reversible navy bucket hat with an embroidered “Step Into Joy” design that speaks directly to the fun, colorful, and positive ethos of Havaianas. This same message is spread across the rest of the capsule while incorporating the 100-year anniversary celebration.

All pieces display both the New Era and Havaianas logos to indicate their limited-edition specialty. The trucker hat and 9Twenty classic hat including New Era’s signature silver stamp, which signifies that the hat is an authentic New Era style that boosts your street cred. New Era is the official sideline cap of the NFL and the official court cap of the NBA, which if anything proves these products live up to the same standards of quality, comfort, and function.

Here at The Manual, we stan the bucket hat and recommend you try it, too. It’s the must-have genderless accessory for 2020. The New Era x Havaianas version is the perfect place to start. It delivers a fresh level of swagger without trying too hard. Not to mention, you get a two-for-one investment with its reversibility. Some other favorite items are the washed denim baseball caps and the color block flip flops.

When two super-niche heritage brands come together, you know it’s special, and more importantly, worth the impulse purchase for your next beach day. The New Era x Havaianas collab will be available online and at select Havaianas stores in limited quantities beginning August 20.

Buck Knives, Nicks Boots join forces for an everyday carry collaboration you’ll love
Get yourself two of the best pieces of Americana in existence with one purchase
Nicks Boots with knife

There are a handful of things that every man should have in his closet or on his nightstand that he can turn to when he needs them the most. Dependable, durable, and comfortable. A leather jacket is the ultimate in elevated casual garments. A great pair of perfect-fitting jeans will keep you comfortable in any situation. And a great field watch will outlast any adventure you have in mind. The man also needs a solid pair of boots that can work as hard as him and a knife as dependable as he is. Luckily for us, Nicks Boots has teamed up with Buck Knives to bring us the perfect combination of the last two necessities.

Thanks to the dropping need for dressier footwear and the new explosion of the casual world, boots are the oldest new fad to take hold. Nicks Boots has an idea of how that will shape the boot market, and we got an opportunity to sit down with Shuyler Mowe, CEO of Nicks Boots, to talk about the collaboration and the future of boots.

Here’s what you’ll actually want to wear for the rest of the summer
Men's summer fashion trends to follow this season
Man with a beard standing on the beach.

Men's summer fashion is an ever-changing animal that is difficult to keep up with if you're not paying attention. While it seems that men's fashion moves much slower than women's fashion, the truth is that it moves just as fast, but with smaller movements of the needle. As the seasons change, there are certain trends and items that we love to wear. This is a collection of the best garments you can use to put together the best summer looks for the rest of the season.

Summer colors
This summer’s palette remains somewhat muted and neutral, often taking cues from nature, with bright pops of color enlivening earth tones. White, taupe, black, and navy are our key foundation hues, but a "fall for spring" story means we’re seeing traditionally autumnal colors like olive, brown, and rust, working their way into our shorts, T-shirts, and swimsuits. Those are further bolstered with clear shots of green, aqua, and bold red, as well as bright yellow and orange. Pantone may have expressed it best with its color(s) of the year: Pantone 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and Pantone 13-0647 Illuminating.
The return of Y2K
As the fashion world goes around in circles, the styles of the times cycle back to be relevant once again. So break out those looser fit shirts and pants; skinny is out. There are many looks that are going to look familiar if you are of a certain age to have experienced these the first time around.

Norqain is the independent Swiss watch brand you need to know about
One watch can propel Norqain to the top of the list of Swiss watch brands
Norqain Independent Wild One

The Swiss watch industry is a burgeoning overfill of dozens of brands that have been around for nearly two centuries. It includes brands like Rolex and Omega, which are household names, as well as the watchmaking world's Holy Trinity in Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe, and Vacheron Constantin, who have been at the forefront of innovation since day one. This all makes this industry incredibly difficult to break into. But a challenge isn't something that Ben Kuffer, CEO of Norqain, shies away from. Born in the Swiss Alps with a passion for adventure and the toughest challenges the world has to offer, Norqain aims to take over the luxury watch industry.

As the company celebrates its fifth anniversary in 2023, they do so with the Independence collection. These watches are meant to travel with you as you face challenges at home, in the office, and in the world. As a third-generation watchmaker, Kuffer took the technical experiences of his father and grandfather, along with the brand knowledge he gained from ten years working for Breitling, to strike out on his own to create a watch brand completely independent from the rest of the industry, allowing him to focus on exploration, innovation, and quality. We sat down with Kuffer to talk about the Independence collection and Norqain's goals.
