Produced from 1966 to approximately 1984, Rolex's 5513 Matte Dial Submariner with its no-date watchface is well-known to collectors. The nuanced past of the ref. 5513 is host to many interesting anecdotes, whether the various shifts and changes made to the fonts and text, or the fact that the dial eventually switched from meters-first to feet-first, the smallest differences from one 5513 to another could make the difference between a $5,000 watch and a $50,000 watch. As the watch is no longer in production today, archival 5513 editions still provide a helpful reference in respect to today's Submariner iterations.

Avenida Sir Anders Ljungstedt,

The summer brings out rays of sunshine, one too many drinks, casual barbecues and most of all, eclectic footwear. Even a slight increase in temperature gives good reason to find shade and a rush to bust out as many shorts and T-shirts as we can, but what about footwear? To answer this question we look towards what is the earliest form of footwear invented -- the sandal.
For many a millennium, the sandal has been utilized for a multitude of purposes due to its functionality and breathability, not to mention the simplicity in crafting such an item. The sandal has continually developed over the years and gone beyond functionality. The sandal -- especially outside the sporting realm -- has often garnered a lot of negative press among menswear, but we'd argue it isn't entirely warranted.
"The Summer of Slides" showcases how sandals can be appropriate for a a number of situations, as careful consideration towards styling can go a long way. In our feature, we look at a variety of sandals that encompass the majority in the spectrum of fashion, from the high-end likes of KRISVANASSCHE to the more streetwear-appropriate levels of adidas and Supreme.
Concepts has set the ageless ASICS Gel Lyte V ablaze. Boston’s top shop puts their personal spin on the silhouette that draws influence from the coals and ashes of a fire, producing a simmering style code with a hot top. Cement grey suede covers the entire upper and goes with a speckled dark grey midsole and black outsole to represent the ashes, while bright red is seen on on the ankle collar, tongue and laces for a burning exterior. Finishing off the fire, when it gets dark, 3M detailing on the branding and all four included laces keep these kicks crackling. Drop your feedback on this CNCPTS collab in the response box below, and light your collection on fire when these release on August 2nd.
