Topo Designs and Chacos Team Up for Colorful Mega Z Cloud Sandal

If you don’t own a pair of Chacos, have you ever lived?

Now, some fashionistos might say that a pair of Chacos is akin to wearing a pair of Crocs, but hear us out. Unlike those dumpy, foamy, useless, clog-like creatures known as Crocs, Chacos make up for their own lack of “sophisticated” style with comfort and utility, offering the wearer a certain fashion-forward chutzpah that most men are too timid or too stylistically conservative to pull-off.

In other words, Chaco sandals were destined to be streetwear before streetwear became a thing again. With their chunky soles, straps and webbing, and “hiker” profile, Chaco’s ability to stand out on account of its design sensibility is a key feature in the world of streetwear — just ask Supreme.

Now Chaco sandals truly landed dead-center of the streetwear scene with the brand’s latest collaboration with the well-known bag and accessory brand, Topo Designs. Both companies’ love of graphic elements and bright colors resulted in a Topo Designs X Chaco sandal (and accompanying bag and accessory line) that is an homage to the Memphis Group of postmodern art and design, as well as a practical leap into the hype-fashion world.

The Mega Z Cloud Sandal sports a repeating geometric color-blocked design and PU midsole Chaco Cloud cushioning to keep your feet comfortable from a hike to the high street. Topo Designs X Chaco also offers a backpack, smaller side-bag, and a dog collar and leash, so even Fido can get in on this color-blocked coolness.

New Longines Spirit Flyback is a callback to aviation history with a timeless flyback complication
Longines has done it again
Longines Spirit Flyback collection

Longines, a name synonymous with precision and elegance in watchmaking, has a rich heritage deeply intertwined with aviation history. The brand has consistently paid homage to its aviation legacy through its watch collections, and the new Longines Spirit Flyback is no exception. We're diving into the remarkable world of Longines and exploring the exceptional features of three distinct variations of the Spirit Flyback, highlighting their significance in the realm of men's watches.
Longines: A legacy of aviation
Before we embark on the journey of discovering this luxury watch, it's essential to appreciate the brand's historical connection to aviation. For over 100 years, Longines has been a prominent figure in the aviation industry, providing pilots with precise timekeeping instruments. This heritage is not only a testament to Longines's commitment to excellence, but also a source of inspiration for its aviation-themed collections.

The Longines Spirit Flyback collection pays tribute to the brand's aviation heritage by combining classic design elements with modern technology. This collection includes three remarkable timepieces, each with its own unique strap. For those who appreciate a more classic look, a brown leather strap is often associated with pilot's watches and perilous exploration. They can remind us of the pioneering aviators like Charles Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart, who relied on durable and stylish timepieces during their historic flights. Or perhaps, Steven McQueen, famous for his rugged and masculine style, especially in movies like Bullitt. If you appreciate a more contemporary look, the Longines Spirit Flyback with a stainless steel bracelet and blue dial exudes confidence, while the beige NATO strap adds a more casual vibe.
