There are a few things that the fashion conscious man seems to gravitate towards and collect. Shoes, usually sneakers or basketball shoes. Hats – generally of the baseball cap persuasion. And watches. Watches fall into one of two categories – really nice, high end jewelry store watches or something that’s kind of athletic or athletic looking. With the rise of sneaker culture, I’ve found that men are more and more conscious of the outfits they’re putting together.
One of the fantastic things that I’ve recently been introduced to is SlingShox watch bands. These are like a sleeve that totally changes the look of your G-Shock watch. What you do is take the watch head – that’s the part that’s not the bands – and simply slip it into the SlingShox watch band.
Unfortunately, The Boy was not as enthused by the SlingShox as I was. Sure, he thought the concept was awesome, and that the SlingShox bands were really well made. However, He was not convinced enough to allow me to take apart his Gshock watch, though. I’m sure it had more to do with the fact that he was unsure of my abilities to put his watch back the way it was. I believe that it would have been fine, as the SlingShox even come with a teeny tiny little screwdriver. That’s just great planning!
The SlingShox watch sleeves have some really fantastic design features. The wristband part is made of a very thick, very sturdy silicone material. The buckle is amazing! The tongue part nestles into the buckle and creates a completely smooth surface. I don’t know about you, but I have snagged sweaters and stockings on buckles that protrude. Not only that, but this is actually comfortable to wear. I would have total confidence in the SlingShox watch band.
And the colors! SlingShox watchbands come in just about any color you could possibly think of! Aqua, blue, matte black, even metallic silver and bronze!
With this unique of an idea, it’s no wonder that cutting edge brands like Ciroq, Ubiq, and DTLR have done collaborations with SlingShox.
If you’re looking for a great gift for that hard to buy for guy, consider SlingShox! They’re great for the ladies, too.
