Uniform Wares Swiss-made Collection

UW.jpg

Uniform Wares, one of our favorite watch lines here at Acquire, gets a nice little overhaul this year with the launch of their Swiss-made Collection. The London-based company will be releasing a new collection of watches and updated versions of their current pieces which will receive ETA or Ronda movements, Anti-Reflective Sapphire glass, and a whole new selection of luxurious straps and bracelets.

The new collection will be split into two lines: The C-Line and the M-Line. The M-Line is the signature, elegantly minimal Uniform Wares aesthetic while the C-Line is the brand's take on classic watch forms, refined with a more contemporary approach. Pictured above from left to the right: C41 w/ Milanese Bracelet - $1,570, C41 w/ Tan Nappa leather strap - $1,200, M40 w/ Tan Nappa Leather - $610.

The Absence

What makes a good pair of pants? Well, if you asked The Absence, it would be matching Japanese fabrics with a team of people who craft their pieces by hand and have generations of experience in doing so. Not a bad recipe to go by, if you ask us. The Absence is a new pant label consisting of three well-designed and well-crafted Made to Order pant styles in a fit that's not too slim or baggy, tapered like a chino, and sized to fit just about anyone. Our favorite style is their Cargo Pant with its classic military-style pockets, but in a relaxed, but tapered cut and garment dyed for that perfect finish. It's also available without the pockets in their "trouser pant" style if taste leans more towards the minimal side of things.

$195-$240, The Absence

Each shoe is hand dyed with a Shibori Blue upper making each pair unique.
