Heirloom Week: The Head Start
- Najib Benouar
We’ve spent the entire week speculating on the heirloom futures market, but sometimes it’s good to have a little head start.
Nothing too crazy, just 50 to 60 years or so.
Luckily, our esteemed colleagues at the Washington, DC, bureau of UrbanDaddy have just tipped us off to Hugh & Crye’s recently launched vintage stock. It’s mostly ties, pocket squares and lapel pins—which is a good start in the trinkets department—from the Eisenhower era, but that shouldn’t mean you’ll relegate these to the gray flannel suit days. In fact, a good amount of the ties sport a surprisingly modern slimness. (Plus, there isn’t a more timeless icon than the oriole bird.)
Take a few more looks at our favorite finds of the bunch.
