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.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
