What We’re Wearing

Casual Weekend Uniform

Taylor Stitch Quilted Ojai jacket

You’ve worked hard all week. You'd like to take some time—maybe with a loved one, maybe all by yourself—and just relax. You want to get up late, savor a good cup of coffee and do absolutely nothing. Well, not nothing. You should spend your time off as you see fit: tucking into a good book, listening to a few podcasts or laying back on the sofa and binging that series you've heard so much about. Or perhaps this is when you choose to get out and get some stuff done—running errands or catching up with friends. That means you need some weekend wear that's been engineered for easygoing, off-duty pleasure. Like the softest T-shirt we've ever come across, washed cotton pants with plenty of pocket space and some layered outerwear to ensure you're comfortable despite the unpredictable weather as we transition between seasons. Stay cozy, friends.

We’re Giving Away Our Favorite TAG Heuer Watch

TAG Heuer Autavia Calibre 5 watch

It’s hard not to like TAG Heuer's Autavia. That’s because it’s kind of the perfect watch: classically handsome with old school looks, a tough-as-nail build quality and a reliable self-winding movement. The Swiss-made timepiece gets its unusual name from a portmanteau of “automobile" and “aviation”—which was first used in reference to aircraft and automotive dashboard instrumentation.

First introduced in the early 1960s, this was the first new watch introduced under the leadership of the company’s 29 year-old President, Jack Heuer. Racers, pilots and other adventurers enjoyed the legibility provided by the Autavia, the large size of the watch, and the waterproof case that ensured durability for the most demanding missions. The rotating bezel provided an additional tool for these adventurers. And honestly, it remains a practical tool watch that will never look out of place or let you down. Typically, it would run you around $2,700, but we've partnered with a few of our favorite brands to give one away to one lucky reader.
