Leather Guitar Picks by Corter

These are a fashionably functional necessity for the stylish musician.  My friend Nicole found these bad boys while shopping around for the perfect personal present for her love.  During her quest she found these leather guitar picks by Corter.  

Each hide is hand selected (no leather scraps are used) and each piece is handmade.  They are thicker than your ordinary plastic pick and have an overall different look to them.  The skin is sturdy, forms to your fingers and creates a really beautiful sound.   They are Danny Poulin approved... so you know they're freakin' sweet.

For all you boys who make the big bucks, this amazing (what I consider to be) overnight bag can be yours for the bargain price of $3,500!  Where did I find such a steal? J. mother-effing Crew.

I know... I know.
Why does J.Crew have an item selling at that price point?

It's not reeeeally J.Crew.  It's a label they're carrying.  A British leather goods company by the name of Swaine Adeney Brigg.  They've been around since 1750 and their leather goods, men's furnishings and accessories are just beautiful.   Their products have been carried by royalty and leaders from around the world.   These pieces are handcrafted in their workshop in London.  It's functional fashion with history, quality and character.  You can't beat that!

Ok focus..  I get too excited!

This bag is classic, masculine and rich in quality.  I love the extremely structured body and by looking at the color of the leather it looks like it would age beautifully.

I'm in love.  I can only hope that I find a man who's taste would appreciate a piece like this.

man-ces-so-ry [man-ses-uh-ree] noun,
an accessory worn or carried by men that's not necessarily considered "gay"
ie vintage leather bags, tie bars, pocket watches, pocket squares... or wallet chains.

The wallet chain.. It's coming back at ya and it's coming quick!
I love them.  Again, they are functional and bad ass. You just can't beat that.
In Michael Bastian's Fall 2012 Boston collection for Gant he brings back the wallet chain in pretty much every look.  It's fantastic.  I'm really excited about it.

Wallet chains are the leather wrap bracelets of the functional mancessory world.
It's an effortless finishing touch that completes any look.
It's very..... "Joe Strummer Chic".

I believe every guy should have one of these.
I like this one in particular because it's sleek yet rustic.  Just how I like my men.
This would be an awesome gift.  Functional and bad ass.

I personally love it when guys wear bracelets.
It's a cool way to show your personal style without trying too hard.
Now this post isn't for my usual target hipster audience..  this is targeting all you prepsters out there!  Prepsters and guys that can carry that classic all-American look.

I found this image on Pinterest, which led me to this website
Check it out.  Some of the pieces are pretty sweet and the prices aren't bad either!
They are really preppy.. but I don't mind it.  It's that "Americana" classic sportswear feel.
And I love myself an anchor in any ensemble.

They offer a bunch of men's accessories including bow ties, ties, bracelets and belts!
