Beautiful products. The watch I own from Shinola has been in good working condition for over 5 years. Plus, the staff will replace the old watch batteries for free at the store. Super friendly and helpful staff.


More range in prices.

very high quality and attention to detail. Have some of their accessories and my father swears by their watches. A bit out of my price range though...

Shinola's products are for you if you value craftsmanship and a nod to "the old ways" of designing and building products. In general, you pay a premium for style over substance, but hey if you love style then Shinola products are great. Watches: Beautifully designed, plenty of options, but a bit overpriced for what they are, especially if you are in to watch collecting. I have picked up some great deals on quartz watches at Shinola's factory outlet, which is one of the few brand outlets that sell discontinued stock Leather goods: IMO, this is Shinola's bread and butter. I have had my backpack for 5 years, traveled extensively with it, and it's showing no signs of wear. Plenty of pockets and storage, and just quality through and through Notebooks: Another Shinola staple. Love that you can customize/monogram the notebooks and I really like that there are so many combinations of color, size, and format. Time to say bye-bye to your Moleskin. Headphones: Unfortunately, discontinued. BUT, I love putting these bad boys on. Are they the best headphones out there? No, but damn do they feel/look great and go great with a glass of scotch.


Online shopping experience/website isn't up to par with the Shinola brand experience. I want to feel like I'm walking into the Shinola hotel when I land on your website and it just feels like any other website. Also, more options for monogramming online would be great!

I have some leather watchbands for my Apple watch that are beautiful and really elevate the watch.


The brand is lovely, but you pay for that!

I have been enamored by the American experience that is Shinola. Design and precision are at the heart of all of their products. I own a watch or two, a huge clock, a bag and I believe a baseball, and very recently stayed at the Shinola Hotel in their hometown of Detroit.


Hard to say improve, since I think they have figured out leather goods quite well. I suppose I would be ready to by a cool shoe from them, and even a leather tie. I am a fan like that.
