The Hanger Project just some new garment brushes, which have been two years in the making. They’re produced in Italy, at a expert brush manufacturing company located just outside of Venice. There are three models here: one brush with pig bristles that have been specially chosen to take the dirt and dust out of wool, linen, and cotton suitings; then a softer brush to treat more delicate cashmere fibers; and finally, a double sided brush with both. Garment brushes, of course, help keep your suits and sport coats fresh and clean in-between dry cleanings, without leaving behind the sticky residue of lint rollers.
Over at Proper Cloth, you can find a new selection of Thomas Mason’s Goldline fabrics. As some readers know, Thomas Mason is a high-end branded fabric line owned by Albini, one of the most respecting shirting mills in Italy. The Goldline collection is made from extra-long staple cotton fibers harvested from the Egyptian Nile Delta. Since the fibers are longer, they result in a stronger, finer yarn, and thus a silkier, more wrinkle resistant, and durable shirt. Proper Cloth has them in your basic, solid whites and light blues, as well as conservative checks and stripes for both weekend and casual office use.
Readers probably know about Chipp’s neckties. They’re made in NYC from the same English and Italian silks used at top end shops, but cost a fraction of the price. What some may not know, however, is that Chipp also has a program for fully custom-made suspenders. Paul, the shop’s founder, says: “Who else offers twenty-four different colors and stripes for suspenders, and allows people to order with their choice of leather kips and metal adjusters?” No one that we know of. Each pair of suspenders is made in NYC and available for sale at $45.50.
Indigo & Cotton has some new t-shirts this season from Velva Sheen, a popular label among workwear and classic men’s style enthusiasts for vintage styled tees. These are tubular knit, which means they don’t have any side seams. It’s a slower way of knitting t-shirts, but one that results in less wastage at the factory and a more comfortable fit for consumers. Indigo & Cotton has them in a range of colors, including an exclusive green model made just for them. Also, for deal hunters, the store is offering 25% off anything in their sale section with the checkout code APRIL25.
