FELLAS! Summer is no longer right around the corner… It’s finally here!
So, the question of the day is (and what the EGL Fashion Squad is most interested to know): How strong will your wrist wear game be this season? If you’re a little unsure, you may want to keep reading. We’ve got so much in store for you!
In the vein of male trends, Summer ’17 has officially been deemed “timepiece season”. Adding a watch to your summer ensembles this year is a smart and super swanky way to expound on your everyday looks. And, for the corporate types who must maintain lower profiles while at that 9 to 5; it’s a great way to sneak in a little of your true personalities without becoming the usual fashion offender at your company. The style of watch worn by a man can be very telling, so finding the right fit is crucial. With that being said, today we’ve provided 11 different watches for you to explore! Ranging in style, brand and price, EGL has gathered a pretty strong collection of some of our favorite pieces that you will be sure to love.
