One of the reasons we started HODINKEE Radio almost a year ago is that Iím totally obsessed with podcasts. If Iím not actively writing something or having a conversation with someone, Iíve probably got Airpods in my ears and a podcast pulled up on my iPhone. One show that I never miss is Blamo!, which features interviews with important personalities from across the fashion world. It certainly doesnít hurt that itís hosted by my good friend Jeremy Kirkland.*
In the interest of full disclosure, Ben and I have both been guests on previous Blamo! episodes (you can find links to both below in the show notes), but weíve also both known Jeremy for a long time and have gotten to watch him transition from being a fashion blogger working a day job at a record label to becoming a mainstay in the fashion world. The way Jeremy gets his guests to open up and tell their real stories, instead of the sound bites they feed everyone else is incredible.*
Jeremyís also a longtime watch guy. He gets just as excited about a $50 Seiko as he does a vintage Submariner, and heís someone who learned about watches through trial and error and by always asking questions. This week we turn things around and I ask him a bunch of questions about how the fashion world looks at watches, how he managed to get himself a brand new Rolex GMT, and why any of us even care about watches in the first place.
We hope you enjoy Episode 49 of HODINKEE Radio. Check out the show notes below and let us know what you think in the comments.
Wrist Check

One of the things I respect most about Jeremy is that he's someone who learns by doing things. A lot of his watch knowledge has come from trial and error, buying things on Ebay and poking around forums for little tidbits of information. This Rolex GMT-Master II though is sort of the culmination of years of buying watches that old way Ė this is the very first piece he ever purchased from an authorized dealer with his name on the papers and everything. That experience is special to him (as it is for many collectors) and it makes this watch, now his daily driver, one that he can't imagine ever parting with.
