Drab as the new Fab, Nixon Watches

Well this is unexpected–drab is now fab? I daresay, it is. Well, for the moment. While I admit there’s something interesting about clothes and accessories that look like they’ve lived, I normally prefer them to look that way because… they have. For those of us with far less patience, you can buy that worn and weathered, seasoned and savored look.…
