Put This On is made possible because of the support of our sponsors. So, twice a month, we like to give them a special shoutout. It gives us a chance to show our appreciation, as well as update readers on our sponsors’ latest happenings.
The Hanger Project has been doing some fantastic giveaways in the past year. This week, they’re putting up a delicious looking black tie culinary set, which includes a five star Petrossian caviar tasting, a couple of Baccarat champagne flutes, a bottle of Louis Roederer Cristal champagne, and more. They’re also throwing in a $500 Hanger Project gift certificate. The total package is worth over $4,500, and you have five ways to enter to win. You can see their site for more information.
Our friends at Proper Cloth just got back from Paris, where they shot their latest fall/ winter lookbook. The company mostly specializes in made-to-order and made-to-measure clothing, but every season, they show off their latest collections of business suits and dressed-down shirtings in different settings, just to give customers an idea of how their fabrics can be worn. You can see Proper Cloth’s lookbook at their site. This week, they also just launched their newly updated Cortina vests, as well as Italian merino wool shirts. Finely spun merino wool shirts like these are naturally wrinkle and odor resistant, will keep you warm in the winter, and help wick sweat away from the body.
Chipp Neckwear is the most affordable brand we know of that supplies real Italian silk grenadines. Grenadine is a slightly textured, honeycomb-esque woven silk. And in plain colors such as navy, black, and dark brown, they can be worn with almost any kind of suit or sport coat. Their texture lends visual interest to plainer ensembles, while their solid colors makes them easy to wear with patterns. Chipp’s grenadines are made in New York City using the same silks found at top-end brands. Except, whereas others charge up to $200 for a tie, Chipp’s are just $60.
Dapper Classics is a family owned business producing high-end men’s dress socks to the same level of quality as storied European labels. All of their socks are made in the USA using high-end merino and cotton yarns, and they’re hand linked at the toes. That means, after they’ve been finely knitted, someone links each of the points along the toe to create a seamless look and feel. Their merino wool socks are soft, but durable, and their cottons are made in a nicely breathable weave (get then in solid navy if you’re unsure of choices). Additionally, Dapper Classics recently introduced their Pink Ribbon socks. Ten percent of the sales from those socks will donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Finally, our thanks to Huckberry. They recently crisscrossed across Southwest England, where they visited Cornwall to shoot their latest lookbook. Against a backdrop of Bronze Age ritual sites and abandoned 18th century tin mines, cold-water surfing spots and a 300 year-old clipper ship, they show off how their Finisterre fisherman sweaters, Lisboa cotton flannels, and Flint & Tinder stonewashed jeans can look in rugged environments. Readers looking for Shetland sweaters may also want to know Huckberry has some comfortably brushed ones from Howlin up for sale.
