An email zipped into our inbox yesterday from one of my favorite American fashion designers – Todd Snyder. An email we are guaranteed to open every-time, I am always curious as to what Todd has sent us. Yesterday was no different, I assumed a new button down, or summer weight blazer was to be displayed, maybe even a new shoe collabo (check out his Cole Haan collabo!)
However, it was announcing a unique and uber American fashion/timepiece collabo between Timex & Redwing Shoes & the kicker? They are available exclusively at ToddSnyder.com
Now, a Timex chrono timepiece is classic in its own right, something J.Crew has done an nice job with (and that iconic INDIGLO® Night Light.) However the inclusion of custom made leather bands via RedWing Shoes adds that special Made in America, grit and heritage I love.
This isn’t something I am wearing w/ a tux, but paired with just about anything else – I can see the clean brown leather, and chronograph face looking damn good. Plus, for the price ($158), its exclusivity and uniqueness makes this a no brainier. Now if only I ordered it fast enough – as its now on back-order until June! (I guess that email worked!)
Go check the options out at ToddSnyder.com as there are other versions, smaller faces, different colored RedWing bands, the scout chrono etc… But ensure you grab one, as these are just that side of rare – and exclusive. Something any good collabo must have!
