We couldn’t do what we do without the support of our sponsors, so twice a month, we like to thank them for their support and say a little about what’s going on with them.
Our first sponsor Ledbury has been working hard on their new catalog, which they just released last week. Inside you’ll find their new fall collection, as well as some editorial, where they highlight two of their favorite makers – one a restaurateur and another a furniture maker. The new collection boasts cozier items such as wool sweaters and tattersall shirts, as well as ginghams in darker, earthier colors (giving a spring/ summer pattern a more autumnal feel). You can view their catalog online or request to have one delivered straight to your door.
The Hanger Project just got a full restock on their signature hangers, which are designed to hold the shape of your suits and sport coats. Tailored jackets have a lot going on in the chest and shoulders – canvas, haircloth, padding, and a lot of ironwork. The Hanger Project’s hangers are specially flared at the shoulders to give that shape support, so that all the pressure doesn’t come down on a thin line (as it would be on a thin, wire hanger). Hangers come in four sizes, so you can get the best fit for your jackets.
Next, Chipp has some fall neckwear for your tweeds and corduroys. Their ancient madder ties, for example, have that chalky, soft feel that makes them popular with napped flannels and textured jackets. Each is made in NYC, using the same English fabrics as top-tier producers, but costs less than $70. That’s about a third of the price of some of their competitors.
Gustin specializes in more casual clothes. For fall, they have waxed trucker jackets, lined chore coats, duck canvas chinos, and retro-styled running shoes (a new addition to their made-in-Italy sneaker line). Oh, and they’re working on a double rider jacket at the moment, scheduled to be released soon.
Finally, our thanks to Proper Cloth and Drake’s. Proper Cloth just added some new fabrics to their website, including a $85 pinpoint oxford, as well as a new collection of autumnal neckwear. Drake’s, meanwhile, just opened their new pop-up shop in NYC. You can visit them at 120 Prince Street and see their ties, trousers, shirts, and sport coats (jeans and casual outerwear coming soon).
