Due in large part to the fact smartphones aren’t cheap, it’s incredibly important to find a proper case to keep the thing protected at all times. Enter Nomad Goods and its lineup of gorgeous Horween leather accessories, including a selection of beautiful, nondescript leather cases for any iPhone version 6 or newer. Traditionally constructed — so that it has the ability to age gracefully — Nomad’s iPhone cases (and it’s entire leather selection, for that matter) are one of the most inexpensive ways to upgrade your accessory game without sacrificing style.

So what makes the iPhone cases so great? Aside from the fact Horween-produced leather is perhaps the cream of the leather crop — its Chicago tannery is the oldest in America — the case offers screen edge protection, an interior microfiber finish to prevent scratches, and wide openings around the ports to support larger cables. Furthermore, the product runs just shy of $45 and can easily become the last case you’d ever buy for your phone — it’s that durable.

In addition to Nomad’s leather-clad iPhone cases, the Santa Barbara-based company also offers an innovative charging wallet which (as the name suggests) is a wallet capable of charging a smartphone. Outfit with a lightning-compatible charge cable, the wallet — also a Horween leather-crafted good — comes in either a bi-fold or slim variety. Though they are a tad bulky considering they house a charge pack, the wallets still fit comfortably in a back or front pocket of jean or pants.

Outside of Nomad Goods’ leather lineup, the brand boasts Apple Watch bands, straps, and charge stands in addition to auxiliary power packs and keychain phone chargers. Its online store even sells a convenient leather conditioner which makes cleaning and caring for any of its leather products an absolute breeze. If it’s fine leather you search for to accessorize this fall, look no further than Nomad Goods.

These are the most high-end G-SHOCK watches…yes, you read that right
G-Shock offers high-end watches
G-SHOCK MRG-BF1000R-1A 'Frogman' In Titanium on model

Two things can certainly co-exist together without there being any friction: toughness and luxury, ruggedness and refinement. While G-Shock has never been thought of as a brand that dominates the highest echelons of haute horlogerie, especially with Rolex and Tudor out there, that doesn't mean they don't have their own high-end watches.

G-Shock began as Casio's vision for a durable watch after engineer Kikuo Ibe developed the first G-Shock in 1983. Apparently, he felt like traditional watches were too fragile, and he had a point, considering what the brand has come up with thus far. Over the years, G-Shock watches evolved and started incorporating advanced features like shock resistance, water resistance, and an array of sensors.
