I remember reading about Shinola on friend Mike Payne’s The Coolist about a year ago and subsequently thinking about how the brand was going to blow up. Sure enough, it has.
The brand is everywhere now, from GQ to the malls in Georgia, and it continues to evolve. On Opening Day for Major League Baseball, minutes before first pitch, Shinola tweeted a slick leather watch made out of the remnants of an old baseball glove with the Tigers logo embroidered into it. WANT.
I’d take any Shinola watch, but the Tigers one would be extra special.
