Stalward-Ltd-Ties

The list of things we don’t love from CXXVI is short. Very short. From the waist up, CXXVI made just about everything thing you needed for a day or night on the town and a quick recovery the morning after. The only thing that was kind of scarce was a quality collection of fabric-based neckwear. Enter Stalward Ltd. Started by CXXVI’s Matt Gorton, Stalward Ltd is all ties all the time. Gorton handpicks the fabrics (many limited, short run or dead stock) and then each tie is handmade in the Windy City. Knotting one of these up won’t make you look as cool as the guy in the pictures, but you’ll look way better than you would wearing a tie from Macy’s. And yes, we know you probably don’t have to wear a tie daily, but that’s what makes it even more fun.

Gerber-Pocket-Square-Linerlock-1_1024x1024

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
