pendler bon ton: the very dapper gentleman
“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler…”
I know I post a lot of fashion inspiration on this blog for the ladies, so every once in awhile I try to balance things out. Have you noticed I have been beating a bit of a New York drum lately? Is it my fault that I keep finding out about more and more amazing brands which happen to be based in New York?
Ernest Alexander is another such compelling company and while they do have products available online, it can also be fun to just take a peek and be inspired by their way of putting quality materials together. The Ernest Alexander brand is yet another to take advantage of the current “Made in America/American Craftsmanship” trend.
ps - who wouldn’t want to visit a place where afternoon conversation can lead to a bottle of scotch being pulled out to share with you?
I am adding their shop to my list of places to visit on my next trip to New York:
Design Studio & Showroom
34 West 28th Street
New York, NY 10001
Open Shopping Hours
Tuesday - Friday 11-6pm
More about the brand:
“I’m a big believer that the finer details in life matter. Accessories are no different. From the way a bag falls against your side to the perfect placement of buttons on a shirt, it’s the little things that shape your daily experience. I launched Ernest Alexander with a simple vision in mind. Create handcrafted accessories in the old tradition, adding a touch of style and a bit of modern aesthetic. Clean lines. Heritage materials. Authentic finishes. Functionality. Hard-to-find fabrics. These are the things that make for a distinctive, wearable experience. I also believe that the way we make things is equally as important. That’s why we’ve chosen to manufacture our line here in the USA using craftsmen schooled in the longstanding traditions of quality, heritage and purpose. Thank you for visiting Ernest Alexander and we hope you enjoy our line as much as we enjoy creating it.” - Ernest—
