Shinola!

Uncategorized — Jeff Eske on July 31, 2012 at 9:20 am

I don’t know my $h!t from much, but I know that I like these…

Evidently,  a “new” company is starting up in the Motor City.  I say “new”, because they’re using a name that’s evidently been around for over a hundred years.  The company (or brand?) is going to be called Shinola and they’re evidently going to be manufacturing, or at least assembling, a range of products here in the U.S.  Three of their product lines – leather goods, watches, and bicycles are things that I’m interested in.

The most interesting to me though are the watches.  They appear to be kind of fun, unique styles.  Of course, with “Shinola” emblazoned across them, they can’t HELP but generate conversation.  I read somewhere that the price range was something like $400 – $600, which seems a little steep to me.  I guess, depending on the specs, fit, and finish, that might not be too bad.  I’ll be interested to see some reviews once the watches are out in the public.

Unfortunately, I can’t really find any decent (ANY?) pictures on their site, so I did what any Netizen would do, I Googled for them and have re-posted them here.

  2. Hey Paul,

    I don’t have anything to do with selling Shinola watches; I just like their styling. You can get one at: http://www.shinola.com/
