TGIF Shopping ( & Giveaway!) Ball and Buck Launches Denim

You’ve been relying on them for outwear, dopp kits, leather coasters, fishing nets, and yes even shotguns, since Ball and Buck was founded in 2008. Now, the all-American company “born and bred with red, white, and blue running through our veins,” is introducing denim to the fold.

After fine tuning the perfect fit in pants, Ball and Buck decided it was finally time to offer the 6 Point Pant in denim.

So why now? According to Ball and Buck CEO Mark Bollman, it was always part of the long-term product strategy. “This is the same way we develop all the products we sell – start by building the highest quality products in the world, then take them into the to field and beat the shit out of them,” he explains. “It’s only after they have exceeded our high expectations of quality do we go into production and offer them to our customers.”

Like everything from the men’s wear brand, the denim is sourced from North Carolina’s Cone Mills, where it’s woven on shuttle looms to produce two unique denims: Selvage and Distilled Indigo.

Both denims features camo pockets and shotgun shell rivets

“A couple of the details that make me the most excited is our fit, which doesn’t have the “denim diaper, extra material that sags beneath your behind,” says Bollman. “Also we we’re fed up with our jeans coming apart at the seat seam, so we’ve reinforced that seam for added strength and durability.

As for what’s next: “More fits, more denim weights, and unique material qualities, plus an up cycling denim program.”

Available now at and in store ($188 for Distilled Indigo; $218 for Selvage).

For our readers the B&B team is offering up one free pair to one lucky gent. Simply enter below and dare to dream. Giveaway ends December 25th.

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.

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.

Citizen Layers of Time collection

This year marks the 100th anniversary of Citizen watches, and what better way to commemorate the momentous occasion than with a limited edition capsule collection? It's basically the cake and candles of the watch industry. The Japanese brand has unveiled five models that draw inspiration from the rocks and minerals that formed the Earth several million years ago in a geological evolution.
Citizen watches: The Layers of Time collection

Each of the 5 Citizen watches features an Eco-Drive solar mechanism, with transparent dials and a very noticeable special ink developed along with the Fujifilm Corporation that gives them a surprisingly extraterrestrial vibe despite the fact that they represent our own planet. The Layers of Time collection takes inspiration in its design from geological formations and the natural beauty of the Earth's layers, giving rise to the organic patterns and textures you would find in rocks, minerals, and fossils.

The Citizen Attesa Layers of Time Eco-Drive Satellite Wave GPS CC4057-60E features a case and bracelet made from incredibly durable Super Titanium alloy, made even better with a black Duratect finish. It's one of the more beastly watches in the new collection as its case measures 44.6mm in diameter and 15.4mm in thickness, and it's water resistant up to 100 meters. This watch has a bezel adorned with a gradient finish, echoing the colors in the dial, and it's powered by the Caliber F950 Eco-Drive movement, famous for its self-sustaining capabilities in any light.
