31.// Championing Cozy.

Until a couple of years ago I was never someone to stray far away from jeans... I've always liked denim and still do... I could wax lyrical about how denim ages and becomes unique over time, but you already know that... However over the last couple of months I've been on the hunt for a decent sweatshirt and sweat pant co-ord to add to my arsenal. Something that would be suitable to wear out of the house on a lazy sunday and not just a set pulled of the shelf at my local JD.

That's where the guys over at CROWTHER/PLANT stepped in. Their design led approach to "sports-luxe" has hit the nail on the head. A tracksuit made in England with a more tailored approach and some incredible stitch details.. This particular one is actually indigo dyed too, that makes it extra sweet right?... It's also comfortable as hell, so you'll probably catch me jumping into this when I get home from work in the evenings.
I paired it with my AMI runners, which I've been wearing to death recently on a part of them being incredibly hard wearing. They also make this whole fit even more comfortable, so I'm fully championing that "c0zy Boi" aesthetic.

If you haven't already seen  previous posts about CROWTHER/PLANT then definitely take a look back at when I first met them here and see how they use the indigo dying process here. 

Thanks for Reading, James.

30.// JORD.

Laying on a beach in Greece feels like an extremely distant memory right now, I'm now back home behind my laptop with the reality of deadlines and real life work to get on with. On top of that it's not warm here in the UK anymore, so looking at these pictures now actually pains me a little.

Before I left for Halkidiki, JORD hit me up to see if I wanted to try out one of their Luxury Wood Watches... I know it sounds a bit odd, I thought the same when I was emailing them at first... However, I've actually now discovered a new timepiece that will be making a permanent home in my accessories collection.

I've always been a sucker for good presentation, so when I received my Ebony and Gold Frankie Series watch through the post I was pretty stoked. Housed in a carefully crafted wooden box and wrapped around a branded tweed cushion was my new timepiece from JORD. For me watches either need to be timeless or minimal, something that will lend itself to a clean aesthetic. The simple face on this particular one I chose is perfect for that, the texture of the wood and gold accenting creates a great look. What's more, I actually expected the wood to be super uncomfortable and thought that it was a bit gimmicky... In fact, the slim and light weight wooden watch strap is actually one hundred times comfier than I ever expected it to be. That's what's going to make this unique watch a permanent feature in my accessories rotation... All the tech spec's on it seem pretty decent too, boasting sapphire crystal glass and Swiss Movement.. If you want to take a look for yourself click right here. 

Before I go, this post was actually sponsored by JORD Wood Watches. However, all the opinions were my own. They've actually set up a little competition to give one of my readers a $75 e-gift code to use on their online store... they'll give a $20 e-gift code just for entering too... Just CLICK RIGHT HERE and fill out the small form.
