In our neck of the woods, completion of summer season just implies something: it’s flannel season, y’ all. The leaves are altering color, the air is thick with pumpkin spice, and the time has actually pertained to when again bust out the woodsiest of all the fall wardrobe essentials, those durable plaid button-downs.
The flannel t-shirt has actually been a go-to for trendy folks– from the cowboys of the Old West to Kurt Cobain to A$ AP Rocky– for more than a century thanks to its unsurpassable mix of toughness, flexibility, and straight-up toastiness. If you’re looking for more flannel in your life this fall (and why would not you be?) look no more than the Casio Pro Trek x Pendleton, a brand-new collab that connects Casio’s outdoorsiest digital ticker with the most renowned name in flanneldom.
In the family tree of Casio watches, the Pro Trek is the G-Shock’s nature-loving cousin, with functions like a triple-sensor (elevation, temperature level, and barometric pressure), a compass, and 100m water-resistance that make it prepared to deal with anything the outdoors has in shop. Pendleton, as you might understand, is the grandaddy of flannel brand names, and after more than a century in company, still makes its blankets and durable button-downs in the Pacific Northwest from 100% virgin wool. (They were likewise, briefly, the initial name of the Beach Boys, but that’s a story for another day.)
The Casio Pro Trek x Pendleton upgrades the friendly ana-digi appearance of the current Pro Trek design with a strap imitated Pendleton’s X4 pattern– which decorates the brand name’s famous outerwear and bed linen– in addition to a coordinating theme on the dial and hands. In line with its gorpcore perceptiveness, the watch likewise includes environmentally friendly touches like a case made from bio-sourced plastic, a solar-powered motion, and a storage bag made from Pendleton eco-wise wool. All of that makes the Pro Trek and a strap influenced by a traditional Pendleton theme as natural a combination as s’mores and campfires, and the best method to go all-in on flannel at any time of the year.
