I rarely accessorize and when I do, I make sure it’s something not as gaudy as yellow gold or silver from the Middle East.

In my case, less is definitely more, and quality will always win out over quantity. It has been a year since I have been drooling over Kiel James Patrick’s insanely and exquisitely crafted nautical cords and finally got one from his Lanyard Hitch Collection ( read previous entry) a few weeks ago at KAPOK.
(The Lanyard Hitch Collection consists of fifteen colorways of nautical cord twisted in New England and shipped free to your door. The weathered cord in hues both vibrant and muted is adorned with a brass anchor clasp allowing you to remove the bracelet)
His anchor bracelets are quintessentially and effortlessly classic American that you can’t help instantly being transported to the shores of New England at some preppy clambake or go local and just hit the weekend market in seersucker shorts, your trusty pique shirt and yes, your ever-dependable schnauzer.
