We feel fortunate to have companies support what we do, so twice a month, we like to give them a special shout out.
Our first sponsor, Ledbury, just released their latest collection of summer sport coats. These are designed to be as breathable as possible, with lightweight fabrics for the shells and either unlined or partially lined constructions for the interiors. Ledbury worked with an Italian factory to come up with a slim, modern fit that’s still wearable for the office. You learn more about how their sport coats are made at their website.
The Hanger Project specializes in high-end wooden hangers, which are designed to maintain the three-dimensional shape of your tailored clothes (fully canvassed sport coats, for example, have a certain shape pressed in, which can lose shape if the jacket is stored too long on the wrong hanger). They also have a wide range of shoe care products, including polishes, leather conditioners, and stain removers. Pictured above are some of the speciality care products for cleaning and maintaining suede.
Next, Chipp Neckwear is an old Ivy Style operation connected to New York’s Winston Tailors (a custom tailoring shop that has dressed everyone from JFK to Andy Warhol). Online, Chipp sells some of the most affordable grenadine neckties, ancient madders, and silk knits around. All ties are made in NYC from the same English and Italian fabrics everyone else uses, but they’re sold at about 1/3rd of the price. For summer, they also have a range of slubby Matka silk neckties to go with linen and cotton jackets.
Gustin is another aggressively-priced outfitter. Their raw denim jeans are made in the USA from American and Japanese fabrics. However, since they crowdsource all of their production online, and sell directly to consumers, they’re able to offer things at wholesale prices (no waste, no overstock, no middle-man mark ups). Their raw, selvedge denim jeans, for example, start at $81.
Finally, our thanks to Proper Cloth and The Bernhardt Watch Company. Proper Cloth just got some horizontally striped fabrics in, for those who want to a little more variety in their dress shirt wardrobe. The Bernhardt Watch Company also has some new watch models for graduation season and Father’s Day. Their “Captain’s Watch” is classically sized at 38mm for those who want something more understated.
