Rhone Tiny House-Style Pop-Up Store Hits the Road for U.S. Tour

East Coast activewear brand Rhone is known for quality shorts, shirts and anything else you’d need to get your sweat on. While their workout gear has only been available online and in select brick & mortar stores since the company’s start in 2014, they’ve opened a limited engagement store in New York City and launched Rhone pop-up tour in a tiny home they’re calling Walden House.

The NYC store is a 247-square-foot shop in Brookfield Place near Battery Park featuring vintage and repurposed elements to match the ethos of the company. Walden House is an even smaller retail space (192 square feet) modeled in the tiny house-style and completely towable by truck. The store features reclaimed wood, organic materials, and other energy-saving features within the footprint that’s meant to invite plenty of natural light.

To create Walden House, Rhone partnered with New Frontier, a design firm that specializes in building mini structures. Together, they’ve created a special shopping experience that should mold nicely to each tour stop. The storefront is similar to some of the buildings that New Frontier has featured on various HGTV programs. They blend together functionality, style, and environmental considerations into 21st century commerce that still has a personal touch.

Watches in this Jack Daniel’s collection feature the brand’s wooden barrels
Want a whiskey barrel watch face?
Original Grain Jack Daniel's watch collection in case

The best things in life tend to combine multiple passions, so if your favorite Tennessee whiskey is Jack Daniel’s and you love stylish wristwear, then your time may have come. The legendary bourbon distillery has partnered with watchmaker Original Grain to produce a series of timepieces celebrating its heritage and brand. The collection in question has been aptly named The Original Grain x Jack Daniel’s watch collection.

All of the watches come with a very unique twist. Wood from the barrels Jack Daniel’s uses to mature its famous spirit is used in their manufacture. Alongside the bourbon-stained American oak, you may also see some charcoal and limestone. The charcoal is a reference to the filtering process Jack Daniel’s goes through during its mellowing phase, and the limestone is a nod toward the Cave Spring Hollow. That’s where the water used to make the whiskey is sourced.

Our top picks for orange watches for men
TAG Heuer Aquaracer Calibre 5 Automatic promo shot

Like a ripe Valencia orange, bursting with juice and color and plucked off the tree at the perfect time, orange watches for men will zest up your wristwear game. In a sea of monochrome monotony, where the average watch is usually blue or black with a stainless steel bracelet, orange watches will certainly have you standing out.

Orange is not only a great way to add a pop of color to your wardrobe, but the color has major significance and use. No, we're not talking traffic cones, Halloween pumpkins, and other unsightly things that famously use the color. It's also seen in a Tuscan sunset, used as a way to see better in the depths of the ocean, or sometimes aids as a symbol of an organization or good cause like environmental conservation.

If you’re a fan of cycling, then you’ll love this new Tudor watch
Tudor releases watch to commemorate Giro d'Italia
Pelagos FXD Chrono Tudor Pro Cycling Team Edition on wrist

On May 4, the Giro d'Italia kicked off, with cyclists embarking on a challenging (a simple word for the mind-boggling, grueling race) journey that spans 3,400 kilometers across 21 stages. It started in Venaria Reale and will conclude on May 26 in the land of pasta and pizza, Rome. The Giro d'Italia has an incredibly long history dating all the way back to 1909, but this year promises an entirely modern update with the addition of the Tudor Pro Cycling Team. Naturally, the Tudor watches has introduced a new timepiece to commemorate what is their first Grand Tour.

The Pelagos FXD Chrono Tudor Pro Cycling Team Edition, a watch so sturdy it can certainly handle the long name, might look familiar to fans of the brand, as it looks just like the Tudor Pelagos FXD Chronograph Alinghi Red Bull edition from last year. However, as is true of the brand, this Tudor watch embraces some technical specifications that make it perfect for the sport it represents.
