The weather is just starting to cool as we ease into fall. Our sponsors are gearing up for the new season, so we wanted to mention their happenings as we thank them for their support.
Ledbury is doing their “Thirty Shirts for Thirty Days” event right now. Every day, the rest of this month, they’ll be releasing a new shirt to their email subscribers, describing the benefits of the shirt and suggesting how it could be styled – covering everything from professional office-wear to things you can pack for weekend trips. If you’d like to be notified of these new releases, you can sign up for their email list.
Next, The Hanger Project just received a new shipment from Sealup, an Italian outerwear company that has been producing classically styled coats since 1935. Their outerwear is fully made in Italy using weather-resistant materials. The Hanger Project has their mackintosh coats – which are taped at the seams and feature wind- and water-proof Thermore linings – as well as longer peacoats that can be layered over suit jackets and sport coats.
Chipp doesn’t really do seasonal collections. They just offer made-in-USA accessories year round – from spring/ summer Matka ties to fall/ winter ancient madders – at about a third of the price of their competitors. They’re probably most known for their $55 Italian grenadine ties. The solid colors make them easy to pair with patterned shirts and jackets, while the textures lend visual interest.
Gustin keeps things moving with new shoes. In the past, they’ve come out with more affordable versions of minimalistic sneakers and Chromexcel workboots This fall, they have “Maine guide boots,” a moccasin style inspired by what early mountaineers and wilderness guides wore on the trails. Shoes are made in Maine from Horween leathers, but cost about $100 less than shoes of similar build.
Finally, our thanks to Proper Cloth and Drake’s. Proper Cloth just put up their new lookbook, which was shot in Iceland. They also have some new plaid flannel shirtings, as well as leather gloves for the cold. Drake’s, meanwhile, just got a full restock on their trousers. That includes gray wools, tan cottons, and olive cottons, which are versatile enough to be paired with almost any jacket.
