Say that we at Squire are fans of Todd Snyder is an understatement. The New York designer knows how to create the kinds of things – from polo shirts and jeans to sneakers and more – that make us all want to sing out loud. For my part, I have two suits of his own that I have worn in rotation to every chic event over the past decade, and I will continue to do so for the three weddings I responded to this summer. These are the unexpected details he adds, the * chef’s kiss * fit, the timeless appeal of its items that made it a cut above the rest.
It’s no wonder the man is now celebrating the 10th anniversary of his eponymous brand. And it commemorates that milestone by dropping a series of premier collaborations that will have you galvanized in style all summer and beyond. The latest is the MK1 Bootcamp watch, a timepiece created with its long-time partner, Timex. And like all of his past collections with the watchmaker, this one speaks of classic American style.
“I have always been inspired by the rugged beauty of watches that were originally developed for the US military, but many of them were designed to be ‘non-maintainable’. disposable, ”Snyder said in a statement. “I was delighted to be working with Timex on a ‘maintainable’ version of these vintage watches that would look modern and appeal to today’s gentleman. “
The MK1 Bootcamp references the mil-spec W-46374B, a timex archive watch that was designed for jarheads in the early ’80s. The new kid on the block features a sturdy fabric strap in a golden hue. rustic (one of the four colors of the Marine Corps) and a domed acrylic crystal. It’s also made from aircraft grade steel, so unlike the original, this watch, like everything Snyder touches, is built to last for a long time.
Whether you are a Snyder enthusiast, a fan of Marine Corps history, looking for a really cool timepiece, or like me all of the above, the MK1 Bootcamp is the watch for you. you need. I’ll pair mine with my two Snyder suits for the plethora of weddings I’ll attend.
