Red Wing Heritage Releases Fundamental Line of Leather Goods

Red Wing Heritage, a workman’s staple for quality boots, is hell-bent on equipping us with all the leather goods our little hearts desire.

The launch of Red Wing Heritage’s new collection sees wallets, gloves, belts, bags, even coasters join the ranks of premium leather offerings from the crimson-winged label. Unlike many accessories “collections” introduced by staple-footwear brands, there isn’t just one belt and one wallet in the assortment. Try 18 different wallets accounting for six different styles and three leather colorways (top of our wish list is the vegetable-tanned leather Card Holder), along with eight belts, seven gloves, four coasters, and one end-all, be-all dopp kit.

Every accessory is designed with sharp simplicity and southwest style sensibilities. Red Wing Heritage uses premium leathers from the company’s own in-house S.B. Foot Tanning Co.; each piece stamped the iconic logo and a “Made in the USA” brand.

Red Wing Heritage got its start more than a century ago making premium boots — and has kept the standard of its product to the same high quality — so it’s clear in this special expansion that we’re dealing with leather goods that are built to last and look handsome for decades to come. If you can’t say that already for your wallet, belt, and gloves … it’s time to get better ones.

If you’re too stoked to wait for your leather order in the mail, you can purchase the goods old-school style at a New York City pop-up shop located in TriBeCa neighborhood. The store signals the first time in Red Wing Heritage history that the entire men’s and women’s collections, care products, limited edition styles, and accessories — as well as the new leather goods — will be available in one shop. “It will be the best assortment of Red Wing Heritage found in the U.S.” says a representative for the brand.

The pop-up will also house the recently released, limited-edition Irish Setter collection, the features throwback styles resurrected in modern styles. Seriously, these boots might be the best shoes introduced in the past five fall seasons, perfectly blending style with burly functionality (you’ll look like you just chopped wood for an hour without any of the sweat and debris).

The Red Wing Heritage pop-up shop will be open through spring 2018 (more info and address here), however there’s no word on whether the new leather goods will have an expiration date (please no, please no). Either way, we know what everyone’s getting for the holidays. And we can guarantee nobody’s gonna be re-gifting or asking for the receipt.

G-Shock finally gives some attention to ‘Air’ in its Master of G series
G-Shock releases GRAVITYMASTER GR-B300, inspired by airplane cockpits
G-Shock Gravitymaster colors

G-Shock is not known as a brand that makes watches for pilots, or anything aviation-inspired; those brands are usually Longines, IWC, or even Zenith. Generally, when you think of G-Shock, you probably imagine a mud-covered man running through the forest when it's pouring rain, checking his watch as he splashes through puddles with a sweat-covered brow. However, the brand has surprised us all.

Following a brief break since the launch of the GR-B200 in August 2020, the GRAVITYMASTER GR-B300 has been released this year. While G-Shock expanded the Master of G series last year, celebrating the land category with Mudman, Mudmaster, and Rangeman, we can finally take to the skies and move into the "Air" category with the newest release, screaming "up, up, and away" in the process. Not only is the GRAVITYMASTER GR-B300 a celebration of aviation, but it draws serious inspiration from supersonic jets and modern aircraft with its sleek design. As aviation itself advances, so too must pilot watches and the new GRAVITYMASTER GRB-300 exemplifies this to a T.

Oris drops an all-black Divers Sixty-Five for 120th anniversary
Oris 2024 Holstein edition

When you're between the ages of 1 and, let's say, 13, birthdays are a big deal; your friends come over, there's a big cake and candles, perhaps a magician or a clown shows up to scare everyone, and if you're lucky, it takes place at a roller rink or a bowling alley. Well, Oris watches are turning 120, meaning they've matured quite a bit since the days of party hats and streamers. The Swiss watchmaker has released a Hölstein Edition (named after its hometown) every year for the past five years in order to celebrate its anniversary, with just 250 pieces. Oris uses these Hölstein Editions every year to create some truly head-turning watches, and this year is no different.
Oris watches 2024 Hölstein Edition: As black as a watch can get

Oris watches made 2024 even more special since they hit the big 1-2-0 and gave their ever-popular retro dive watch, the Divers Sixty-Five, an all-black makeover. And when we say "all black," we literally mean all black with not an accent color in sight minus the date window, which is printed in white (after reading that, Batman said, "No, thanks.")
