Watchbands from O'Connell's Clothing

O'Connell's Clothing is an institution. They're one of the very last true suppliers of trad and preppy garbs in the US. Which is probably why I sometime find myself spending hours upon hours browsing their huge assortment. You'll find everything there from good "shaggy" shetland sweaters to Harris Tweed blazers, and thank God they're based in the US and not some place closer to me, as I would be spending more money, that I don't have.

These watchbands are both fun, wearable, not-Nato and affordable. Oh, and they're made in the US.


  1. Those are great! I've actually been looking for something like that to wear with my watch (Heuer Camaro from the early 70's my dad got from his grandmother when he was 16) in the summer and I didn't want a NATO band.

    Can't believe I didn't know about O'Connell's though. What a great collection.

  2. I'm glad I could introduce you to O'Connell's. It's a great place to gather inspiration from some very traditional clothing.

    In regards to the watchbands, I'm sure they'd look great on your Camaro, although a lot of Heur watches are based on motorsports (or at least their names are)and are quite sporty.
    Unfortunately these type of watchbands aren't really widely available in the EU. But I'm sure, they can be found somewhere.
