As part of a mid-season drop, outdoor clothing brand Penfield has introduced two all new jackets to its fall/winter line of comfortable, durable outerwear gear: the Franconia and the Thurman.

When designing the new jackets, Head of Design Simon Oates said the brand turned to its history for inspiration.

“Our priority is to always be loyal to the past,” began Oates. “We source ideas from our extensive archive of historical Penfield garments and drive the styles forward through fabric innovation to help create contemporary looks.”

“For these two designs,” he continued, “we were inspired by an original Penfield mountain parka for the Franconia and a vintage Military MA1 bomber jacket for the Thurman.”

The fit is incredibly adaptable with adjustable hem cinches and elasticated cuffs. Plus, it’s pretty warm, though Oates suggests using it as a layering peace year-round. It’s available in black and navy.
The Thurman ($160) maintains the classic military bomber style of its predecessor and remains a perfect jacket for the cool days of fall. In this revamp, designers constructed the garment from a lightweight fabric with a modern matte finish, which provides it with a clean contemporary feel.
Thankfully, the jacket is as trendy as it is practical—the exterior fabric is water proof and the interior features a premium quilted thermal wadding material, which provides extra warmth without adding bulk.  It’s available in olive, black and navy.

“These jackets are perfect for our fashion-conscious customer, who has an active lifestyle and is looking for a killer combination of style with a high level of functionality and quality,” explained Oates.
“From the inside-out, every Penfield jacket is manufactured to meet these ambitious, yet attainable, standards.”

Seiko 5 Sports SNXS Series watches

Throwing it back to the early days of Seiko, the latest edition to the Seiko 5 Sports lineup pays homage to a beloved icon of the brand: the Seiko SNXS. However, this time, it's a modern interpretation, and fans will love it. The SRPK series features the SPRK87 with a blue dial, the SRPK89 in black, and the SRPK91 in ivory. Despite the seemingly basic colors and simple design, these new pieces breathe new life into the original. These new watches are all about the classic Seiko design elements that fans of the brand appreciate, with some modern features like 100-meter water resistance that bring it into this year.
Seiko SNXS has officially returned

Seiko made history in 1963 when they introduced the Sportsmatic 5, Japan's first automatic day-date. The Seiko 5 quickly shot up in popularity as it was crafted with a stainless steel case and bracelet, had water and shock resistance, and featured tons of practical functions while still being affordable. It debuted during the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, meaning it was put on the map globally (pun intended), and by 1966, Seiko 5 exports surpassed the collective output of automatic watches from Switzerland.

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.
