The shopping itch from the holidays lingered into January. Even though the sales were slowly going away, I still wanted to buy things! It’s a bad habit, I know, but I give myself some props for being able to hold myself back. There would’ve been way more items in this January haul post if I didn’t have better self-control.
So what did I get during my post-holiday shopping? Check it out:
Men’s Compact Bi-Fold Wallet by Coach
My wife couldn’t stand the look of my beat-up wallet so she got me a bi-fold wallet from the Coach outlet store. I’m normally not a fan of luxury brand wallets since I can’t justify myself paying so much for a glorified piece of leather, but this wallet was only $40! This made it easier for me to use it without feeling guilty.
I must admit, the design on the Coach wallet is definitely a step up from my now retired wallet. The texture and all-over print of the Coach logo on the canvas give the wallet a bold, stylish look.
Could this be the wifey trying to tell me to step up my fashion game?
Seiko 5 Automatic Gold-Tone Watch
The gold Casio watch started to grow old on me so I decided to browse Amazon for a classier gold watch. After narrowing down the style and comparing prices with other retailers, I decided on the Seiko 5 Automatic Gold-Tone Watch.
It’s been almost a month since I’ve had this watch and I’m loving it more and more each time I wear it. It’s so easy to pair it with my outfits. Whether I’m going for a business casual or streetwear vibe, I can fit this into any look.
Note: I wrote about why every man needs a classy gold watch in my latest Friday Favorite series post. It’s an essential piece that can go with almost any outfit and should be a part of every man’s wardrobe. If you don’t yet own a gold watch or are on the fence about getting one, I encourage you to check out the post!
Bomber Jacket by Original Deluxe
Don’t you just love it when you stumble upon a good deal when you weren’t even looking for one?
As I was killing time at Ross, I found this black bomber jacket by Original Deluxe. I wasn’t familiar with the craftsmanship of this brand, but the jacket looked pretty well-made as far as I can tell. With all the sewn-on patches and how thick the jacket felt, I expected it to be expensive, but it was only $21. With a price like that, this was an obvious buy.
