Prospex Automatic Diver
Whether the wearer will actually be diving or just wearing it in his day-to-day, dive watches are some of the toughest made — built to withstand almost anything.

8. J.Crew 1988 Cotton Rollneck Sweater
J.Crew knows that their best bangers were some of the oldest. I remember the first time I saw one of these classic rollneck sweaters years and years ago, so I was stoked to see the brand revive it.
