TWOTHIRDS: For The Modern Man by the Sea

In recent years, the trend for many companies has been to become more socially and environmentally responsible. I don’t know about you, but I am more apt to shop from a company that is having a positive impact, rather than from one that doesn’t. Clothing line TWOTHIRDS posture their brand as socially responsible in an ocean of others that are not. The company hails from founder Lutz Schwenke in Europe’s top surfing destination San Sebastian. And their clothing is first and foremost inspired by the ocean.

At TWOTHIRDS they create quality clothing directly inspired by the fact that two thirds of the world is covered in water and by the their manifesto to “protect what you love.”

“We are surfers and love the ocean, that is why we want to do a little something to do things better and minimize our impact on the ocean.” Schwenke said. “Our entire supply chain is measured by that impact”

TWOTHIRDS reduces their environmental impact by using recycled fabrics, dead stock fabrics (AKA good quality leftovers) and biodegradable packaging. If that’s not enough, they donate more than 10 percent of gross profits to efforts that preserve oceans. They also run an educational program called Sentinel, a sort of online blog, which features individuals who contribute in some way to preserve bodies of water.

Aside from the companies preservation efforts, they create menswear for the modern man that can be worn in the city or by the sea.  Their Spring/Summer 2013  line illustrates the surfer’s emotional ties to the sea with a fashion forward twist. It has a nice combination of leisure and formal wear.

“The line was more fashion focused an less sports oriented. The overall theme was a sailing trip to a secluded surf spot in the Basque country,” Schwenke said.

It also adds some refreshing splashes of red to break up the nautical blues and whites commonly found in ocean apparel. Our favorites are the classic looks with the nautical-inspired jackets and laid-back rolled up khaki’s or shorts.

Porsche, TAG Heuer team up for Carrera Chronograph honoring the 911, a timeless classic
A gorgeous timepiece in honor of a true classic
TAG Heuer Porsche watches on wheel

There are fewer sports cars as iconic and persistent as the Porsche 911. Performance has improved, and some features like natural aspiration and air cooling have gone the way of the dinosaurs -- but at its core (and in its styling), the 911 is pretty much the same rear engine beauty that Porsche unveiled back in September 1963. It is currently celebrating its 60th anniversary, as is a much-loved piece of chronography -- the TAG Heuer Carrera.

So it’s only fitting that TAG Heuer, an equally iconic Swiss watchmaker with strong racing links, has partnered up with Porsche to commemorate the German company’s flagship motor. The “Carrera Chronosprint x Porsche” is a beautiful chronograph and a fantastic bit of engineering. Its styling manages to cram in more references to the 911’s 60-year history than we can count without looking garish or overstated.

The whole thing is part of a collaboration that started in 2022 and adds to the already wide range of luxury Panerai watches.

The most limited new watch in Panerai’s Navy SEALs comes bundled with a chance to be miserable on a beach.

The luxury timepiece comes with a matching travel pouch, an NFT, a collection of “artwork,” and the chance to experience “Navy SEALs Training.”
