The brand Shinola popped up on my radar earlier this fall and it just keeps coming up again and again! Garrett actually first introduced me to the brand and I got to see some of the watches firsthand at the Pop Up Flea in Soho. And then we both had the chance to visit the Shinola store in the city to learn even more about it.
The watches themselves are really quite awesome, but I love the story even more. The product is completely made in America with a factory in Detroit. Bringing back manufacturing to Detroit is just the beginning of Shinola’s mission. I was really impressed with how genuine everyone was and how devoted they all were to the quality of products and the quality of the brand. It quite honestly shows in every detail.
I got Garrett the watch with the green face for Christmas and I’m totally eyeing this one for myself.
The Birdy series has a gorgeous leather strap that wraps around twice. I tried it on in the store and really just fell in love. Typically wouldn’t go for orange… but I like this!
