Todd Snyder + Champion

Fellas, ever dream of owning the kind of sweatshirt that not only fits to the tee but feels great and looks stylish enough to wear to the office and after hours? Well, here’s your answer. The American designer Todd Snyder has collaborated with the iconic athletic brand Champion on a new line of menswear debuting this August at Bergdorf Goodman, Barneys, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Odin and Union Made and currently available for pre-ordering on ToddSnyder.com.

Inspired by pieces from the Champion archives and vintage photos of the New York Athletic Club, the Todd Snyder + Champion collection ranges from garment-dyed t-shirts and vintage thermal jerseys to merino wool varsity sweaters, waxed duffel coats and flannel varsity jackets. Other highlights from the 35-piece, “City Gym”-themed line include sweats, knit cargos and button-fly trousers made from jersey and trimmed in cotton twill.

Snyder gets it right, naturally. (The designer, after all, knows a thing or two about tailored casual menswear, having cut his teeth in sportswear at Ralph Lauren, Gap and J.Crew.) Colors, for example, are a rugged blend of heather grays, oatmeal and stone contrasted with crimson, vintage green and washed royal blue. Meanwhile, all the styles sport the authentic 1950’s Champion label with “T.SNYDER” stenciled in the back of each garment, reminiscent of the gym kits the designer himself used to wear in school. Says Snyder, “Champion has always symbolized quality and American style. I love the idea of mixing tailoring with their 1950’s gym-issued items. It’s really been like one extended Christmas looking through the brand’s storied past.”

Forget weighted blankets — Champion has something a whole lot more comfy
Wrap yourself up in a weighted hoodie

It’s no secret that stressful events occur every day. Everything from personal moments to world events can contribute to a stressed and anxious mind. While there are plenty of ways to help self-care, one of the common hacks is using weight to help calm and ground oneself. Not long ago, weight blankets became an easy go-to for those looking for extra help to ease the body from physical symptoms. Weighted blankets offer comfort, as well as weight, to prevent your body from exerting physical symptoms of stress. These blankets can add just the right amount of weight to help keep pressure on your body to ground you and help you be more in tune with yourself. While blankets are great, Champion has recently announced a newer product that’ll take this relaxation hack to the next level. 
The Champion Weighted Hoodie

As its name would suggest, Champion has unveiled its newest product to help broaden the use of weighted products to the everyday. Partnering with weighted product maker, Thera, and with the help of mental health experts, this hoodie is meant to give users the same comfort and safety that weighted blankets can provide. Weighing eight pounds, evenly distributed throughout the body, the Champion Weighted Hoodie gives you this grounding effect that can help ease stress and anxiety throughout your day.

Harry Winston Ocean Date Moon Phase Automatic Rose Gold

When someone says they're looking for a "luxury watch" we can imagine the Harry Winston Ocean Date Moon Phase Automatic 42mm Rose Gold Limited Edition as being what they envision in their mind. This watch, truly the epitome of high-end is made with 18K rose gold and features a gem-set dial, bezel, and bracelet all adorned with sparkling diamonds. On this watch is a moon phase display along with the date, hours, and minutes arranged in an asymmetrical layout through overlapping registers. Each of the 978 diamonds was very obviously applied to the watch with the utmost precision rather than just being thrown on there simply for aesthetics. If exclusivity is your thing, you'll be happy to hear that only 5 of these are available.

Breitling has just scored big time on the watch market court by partnering with basketball player Giannis Antetokounmpo, or "Greek Freak" as he's come to be known. The Breitling ambassador and the brand itself have created two new Chronomat models that will be available to the public, as well as an exclusive watch designed solely for the NBA star (because why not?)

Despite his towering frame, which measures almost 7 feet tall, Antetokounmpo was heard at a Breitling event talking about what his dream watch would be, and it wasn't all that big. He settled on a 41mm stainless steel piece with an icy-blue dial. However, his recent collaboration with the Swiss watchmaker looks quite different. Perhaps they deemed it necessary to appeal to a wider audience, though icy-blue dials are nothing to scoff at.
