3.  Tie bars.   If you suit up for work, this is anAntique watch movement tie pin, sterling plated often overlooked asset that can set you apart as the sharpest dresser in the room.  Check out this steampunk piece that was in Italian Vogue– great watch movement piece with a lot of character, and not just for steampunkers.  On a low key navy suit with silk tie, it really stands out and adds quick texture.  We’ve also got these palladium plated circuit board tie bars if your especially ‘interesting’.  Though they are covered in a smooth shellac, the interest and texture shines through.  These are both legacy pieces, and actually aren’t too cheap.

5.  Cork.  This is a new addition to our accessories line up this fall for a couple of reasons.  It’s sustainable, and we found an amazing manufacturer that produces canvas, cork and leather bags right out of San Francisco!  Weekender or catch all bag,Mens sustainable cork weekender bag duffle dopp bag (some oldies call it ditty), as well as a cork wallet option can really add some complexity to your wardrobe and routine.
