Sol Angeles Is Designed for Casual Men Who Still Want to Look Good

In 2008, Eli and Lindsay Myers found themselves unemployed shortly after moving from New York to Los Angeles. The two pondered their purpose in a new city and ever-changing fashion industry, a quandary that resulted in a lifestyle brand that reflects the ideals and qualities of their new coastal environment: Sol Angeles.

The California-based lifestyle and clothing brand is designed with a low-maintenance, high-satisfaction approach, embracing the veil of casual optimism and carefree aspiration that blankets Southern California. Each piece in its repertoire is meticulously cut and sewn in Sol Angeles’ downtown LA warehouse, from the bright crewneck T-shirts and pullover sweaters to swim trunks, polos, tank tops, and more.

Appropriately dubbed “weekend wear,” Sol Angeles represents the beachy, weekend bum we all aspire to be, offering a whole collection of casual clothing that is suitable for any easygoing atmosphere you find yourself immersed in.

Of course, we have some favorites from its available assemblage. Seeing as the Sol Angeles clothing brand is built upon casual and comfort, we’re going to show off the gear that will revamp your summer wardrobe.

Sol Angeles is dedicated to keeping its customers comfortable in warm weather, so it makes sense that it offers a breathable and chic pair of shorts. These puppies are crafted with a blend of 94 percent cotton and 6 percent polyester, giving way to a flexible light grey color and a unique, textured stripe that is ready for a trip to the beach or lounging around the house on a hot August night.

Whether you’re looking for a beachy floral design or sun-washed solid colorways, Sol Angeles also offers a wide array of tees and tanks ($52-plus) that will complete any casual fit you have planned.

Doxa’s Sub 200T watch is a new, smaller version of the Classic 300 design
Doxa introduces smaller version of Sub 300
Doxa Sub 200T series

Doxa watches aren't exactly the word on the tip of anyone's tongue when they think of their favorite brands; however, they have developed their own community, and some might dub them a cult following. The brand recently unveiled its latest Doxa watch, the Sub 200T which has sent a lightning strike through the hearts of fans, as it's unmistakably more compact than the iconic 300T and 600T models. The lack of smaller options has always been a common complaint among fans of the brand, and with consumer behavior veering more and more in this direction, it's no surprise that the latest iteration is just 39mm. The iconic design of the Classic 300 has been shrunk down to something more compact, sleek, and contemporary.
The new Doxa Sub 200T has a color for every taste

On top of that, the kaleidoscope of color options available from Doxa watches will surely satisfy every taste, from those who like bright and sporty models to those who prefer something a little more classic and subdued. The dial features a sunray-finished design with a luminous sunburst effect, and it comes with two strap options: a stainless steel bracelet with a "beads of rice" design and an FKM rubber strap that comes with folding clasps and ratcheting wetsuit extensions.

Hublot’s sapphire Big Bang gets an icy new color
Hublot reveals new Big Bang in Glacier Blue
Hublot Big Bang in Glacier Blue

The newest addition to the Hublot MP-11 collection is a formidable presence, measuring a whopping 45mm in diameter and 14.4mm in thickness, so you'll need some major confidence if you want to sport this beast on your wrist. The inaugural Sapphire Big Bang was introduced in 2016 and since then the brand has delighted fans with an array of color iterations, from other sapphire colors to purple and orange. Now, Glacier Blue has been introduced, just in time to keep you cool this summer (in attitude, not temperature, unfortunately.)
Hublot: The Big Bang MP-11 in Glacier Blue

This Big Bang MP-11 features a 14-day power reserve, which is achieved through seven series-coupled barrels arranged in a horizontal configuration, and all of that can be viewed by the wearer. The truly vibrant Glacier Blue (seriously, the blue is so bright you'll feel like you're about to start seeing your breath) is made with a fresh chemical composition but still shares the same properties as sapphire: luminous, and able to withstand scratches.
Technical specifications
This Hublot watch will leave you completely mesmerized for several hours before you even think about the technical specifications, though there are some exceptional details to go over. Inside this MP-11 is the HUB9011 Manufacture manual-winding skeleton power reserve movement. As we mentioned above, there are seven series-coupled barrels, but they've been arranged in a coaxial and vertical configuration so the watch is able to maintain a super slim profile of just 10.9mm. All tied together like a bow on top is the blue transparent structured rubber strap with a titanium deployant buckle clasp.
