As men’s fashion goes, so goes the watch world. When menswear was in the thick of Mad Men mania 10 years ago, collectors couldn’t get enough of elegant, Don Draper-esque dress watches. The rise of Americana coincided with the resurgence of rugged vintage dive designs, the horological equivalent of a pair of deeply patinaed selvage jeans. And now that we’re wearing sweatpants with disconcerting consistency, casual, cool, shockingly affordable timepieces are rocketing to the top of watch nerds’ wish lists.

Today we take convenient timekeeping for granted, but it wasn’t until World War I that the wristwatch became a mass-produced utilitarian tool, thanks in part to the brand Hamilton, which had a contract to issue sturdy field watches to American troops. Now, amid our

Just like their bicep-exposing counterparts, long-sleeve T-shirts have long been a staple in the wardrobes of many people. “Short sleeve tees may get all the love,” explains stylist and fashion designer Jordan Page, the curator of the fashion-history Instagram account @veryadvanced. “But the long-sleeve tee is often the more appropriate choice, for both style and function.” When it comes to style, Page explains that long-sleeve tees “can look classier than regular ones because they’re less loose and more complete.” Function is found in the added coverage provided by their longer sleeves, which Page says make the shirts “more comfortable for layering because you don’t get that direct, sometimes itchy, on-skin contact from outer layers made of more textured fabrics like wool.”

New stuff we want to wear, old stuff we’ve been wearing forever, weird stuff that brings us joy.
