Borsalino Caps

Now that autumn is settling in we thought it a good time to proffer some new Borsalino caps. In the same way shoes compliment a wardrobe from the feet up a fine cap compliments it from the head down.

At the end of he day the it’s the attention to details that separate the men from the boys. That’s not to say it takes a great effort, donning a cap can be all it takes.

Founded in 1887 by Alessandro Giuseppe Borsalino the company has been at the forefront of Italian hat design and manufacturing for more than 100 years.

Borsalino Small Brims

These small brim hats are very light and flexible, which means they’re comfortable and cool. They’re 90% paper fiber and 10% hemp, which is also cool. Small brims can be worn up or down but in our opinion up is the only way to fly.

New Horween x Leffot Elston Belt

 What is a belt? Is it merely a device to hold your pants up, we think not after all you could wear suspenders for that. Done well in quality leather it’s that detail of clothing like quality shoes, which enhance your outfit. And at the end of the day doesn’t it all come down to the details? We mixed it up a bit with these new Horween x Leffot Elston belts.

The first is Double Shoulders Wooly Chromexcel in Black 9/10 oz. weight with Scotch grain print and Nickel roller buckle. Wooly Chromexcel is hardy leather made to wear for years and the Scotch grain print ads texture and shows less wear. This is the ideal belt to wear with the Rider Boot Co. Black Grain Chukka

Black Grain Wooly Chromexcel, Nickel Roller Buckle, 40 mm Width

Belts are measured in the following way.

The second is Illini Latigo in Burgundy 7/8 oz weight with antiqued brass roller buckle. Latigo leather is full grain, fat liquored, mill dyed, pasted, hand glazed and aniline finished. That’s a lot of processes and the result is a beautiful smooth strap in a deep *pull up burgundy. This belt is an excellent less formal alternative to a shell cordovan belt and looks great with color 8 cordovan shoes or boots.
