Call me biased, and I am, I admit it, but I LOVE Shinola. I love and respect the story, the founder, the progress its made and the positive impact its had on Detroit. Moreover, I am a super fan of the products, the service and even that they have dog apparel (shocking!). As a Shinola watch owner – just one now – aiming for more in the future – I encourage you to not only visit them online, but here in D.C. at their huge fresh and chic store located on 14th Street. Another reason I have a personal affinity toward the brand is that I found Frasier Simone last May at a Washington Humane Society Mobile Unit event that they were holding in coordination with their former popup shop in Logan Circle. #ForeveraShinolaFan
It’s countdown to V-Day…still wondering what to get?

For the Guy
Your man will be able to carry his loot in style with the Slim Bifold Wallet in Black ($195).
