best minimalist watches for men under 500
If you're a watch aficionado like myself, you'd be searching the internet for photos and reviews of watches until 3am. While this  addiction is both unfortunately and incurable,  it comes in handy when readers ask about what watches they should consider purchasing next. Of course, a watch is a very personal item and one should alway purchase a watch much like how he'd purchase any attire - with care and scrutiny. Personally I'm a big fan of minimalist watches which don't have complicated displays, nifty features or  so-called "cutting edge technology". Watches should serve their sole purpose: to tell the time and date. So here are some of the best minimalist watches for men under $500. These are men's watches which...

The OPSM World Square store is the latest OPSM store to feature the company's new design.

Positioning itself as a premium store providing personalised eyewear and eye care services, the OPSM World Square store features the company's new retail design. The World Square store is decked out in a natural wood palette and feels welcoming and not clinical like many other optometrists. When I sat down the multi-lingual staff at OPSM World Square offered to have an optometrist run through a number of eye care tests with me. As someone...

snakeskin backpack mens
This snakeskin backpack from Skingraft comes with triple compartments. Exotic leather has always been in fashion, but it seems that every few years, snakeskin makes an unstoppable presence on runways and fashion shows. This year we've seen snakeskin and ostrich skin on hats, accessories and of course, bags. While women often adore the distinct texture of snakeskin and other exotic leather, men are often turned off by the boldness of snakeskin.

Search for the Perfect Bag #2: Berluti Venezia Holdall Bag

Berluti leather bag holdall
I remember the first time I came across Berluti: it was their classic briefcase crafted from blue suede and leather that I saw in Hong Kong's Harbour City shopping mall. This 48-Hour Venezia Leather Holdall bag from the classic French brand reminds me of that first impression - it exemplifies the beautiful craftsmanship and the attention to detail Berluti artisans are known for. Drawing on their rich heritage of leather expertise, this spacious holdall bag is made from the brand's signature Venezia calf hide developed exclusively for Berluti. Coloured using a mixture of mineral and vegetable tanning methods, the bag will develop a patina over time which means it will age gracefully with use.
