Put This On is made possible thanks to the support of our sponsors, so twice a month, we like to give them a quick shoutout and say what’s going on with them.
The Hanger Project is known for their specialized wooden hangers – made to help retain the shape of your tailored clothing – but they’re also the largest online store for high-end shoe care supplies. To help customers learn how take better care of their shoes, they’ve created a YouTube channel. At the moment, there are over twenty videos, covering everything from the basics, such as how to polish calfskin leather uppers, to more niche subjects, such as waterproofing soles. If you’ve ever had trouble raising a shine on shell cordovan, they also have a video tutorial for that.
Proper Cloth is an online shirtmaker, selling both ready-to-wear and custom-fit button-ups. A lot of what they have is the kind of slightly dressier and semi-casual styles you’d want to wear with a tailored jacket. They stand out from their competitors, however, in that they have a wider selection of casual shirtings – washed denim, chambray, seersucker, and now shadow plaid flannels. The team there just put together a new lookbook, inspired by the rugged plains of West Texas. A lot of the stuff there is designed to be worn with beat-up jeans and a hefty pair of boots.
Chipp is an old American clothier who used to dress men such as JFK during the heydays of Ivy Style. Nowadays, they still do custom clothing, but they also sell a wide range of classic, American-made accessories online. Our friend Paul, who’s the owner of the shop, tells us that his favorite summer necktie is the multi-colored shantung. “Spring is a nice time for a bit more color,” he says. “I’ve been making that tie for more than thirty years.” For the future, readers can expect eight new ancient madder ties and a new wool challis range.
If you like classic and slightly off-beat takes on Americana, Indigo & Cotton has lots of new spring arrivals. They’re a specialty shop in Charleston, South Carolina, carrying brands such as Engineered Garments, Gitman Vintage, orSlow, Howlin’ by Morrison, and SNS Herning. For warmer weather days, you can check out the popovers, in both band and traditional collar styles. The half-placket design helps mix things up when you’re just wearing them with jeans and sneakers. They also have some deals in their sale section, such as this subtly flecked Howlin’ Donegal knit offered at 40% off.
Speaking of sales, our pals at Dapper Classics have smartly tailored trousers marked down 25%. They’re made from English and Italian wools, but cut and sewn in New York City (at a factory renowned for their trousers). Gray and tan here will be your most versatile colors, although blue and dark brown can help modernize a tailored look. Dapper Classics also has some new socks in, which are inspired by the Kentucky Derby (bow ties and mint julep cups for a bit of whimsical fun). For this month, they’ll throw in a free pair of socks when you buy three or more pairs.
Finally, our thanks to Wolf vs. Goat. They have a ton of new shirts in this spring, including overdyed button-ups, cool-wearing micro-modal tees, and Tencel-cotton blend popovers. Wolf vs. Goat makes use of a lot of unique fabrics (those micro-modals and Tencel blends just being the start), which are designed to help you stay cooler, drier, and more comfortable once temperatures reach above 80.
