We’re very fortunate to have sponsors as an independent menswear blog, so twice a month, we like to give them a special thank you and talk a little about what’s going on with them.
Our first sponsor this month, The Hanger Project, finished a Father’s Day sale this weekend, but just for our readers, they’re extending the same promotion for two more days. For today and tomorrow only, you can take 20% off your full order (so long as the order is at least $200) with the checkout code FATHERSDAY2014. That works on everything from their signature hangers (which help retain the shape of your sport coats and suit jackets) to Saphir shoe care products. They also have things for your garment and personal care – such as clothes brushes, Santa Maria Novella colognes, and accessories for wet shaving.
Our second sponsor Gustin is re-introducing their duffle bags. These are made from a 20oz waxed cotton canvas and thick, full-grain leather. The swivel snaps and D-rings are all Italian-made, and the fabrics and bag construction are sourced from the USA. Like everything Gustin sells, however, these crowdsourced on their site, which means as soon as funding reaches 100%, the order window closes, and things go into production. By not producing more than they need, Gustin is able to offer lower prices since they don’t have to account for overstock.
Next, Chipp Neckwear just got a full restock on their grenadine ties. The advantage of grenadines, of course, is that they’re wearable with almost anything. Being solid in color, they go well with any kind of patterned jacket or shirt, and being a bit textured in weave, they add a little interest where a regular silk might be too boring. Chipp’s grenadines are made from the same Italian silks that everyone else’s are made from. The only difference is that theirs are handmade in NYC and priced lower than anyone else on the market. They also have some ancient madder ties, which is a kind of chalky silk that’s much beloved for how well it goes with tweed sport coats.
Lastly, Proper Cloth just got in some summer ties – lots of airy linens from Italy, made with tightly rolled, untipped edges. They also have some new madras fabrics for shirts, including some organic cottons that are super soft to the touch.
