Cor Sine Labe Doli - Ceramic Bowties, Ties and Handkerchief

The Perfect Bowtie

I’ve been a fan of bow-ties for quite a few years now. These petite accessories add the right amount of “Ivy League prep” without going overboard. While perusing Anthem Wares‘ curated collections, I found something magical: ceramic bow-ties from Cor Sine Labe Doli. These visually-stunning pieces are hand-crafted in Italy by real ceramicists. Not only do they craft killer bow-ties, but they also make ceramic handkerchiefs and classic ties with ceramic knots.

The name, which translated means “a heart with no betrayal blemish”, originates from the amorial shield in Corato (Italy) – the birthplace of the brand’s founder.

To expand upon the shapes and materials used in manufacturing the classic bowtie, the brand incorporated “simplicity, innocence and curiosity” into the design. They took on the “mindset of a child” to breathe new life back into the tired menswear accessory industry.

Fashion must be free,” Cor Sine Labe Doli says. “[It must be] suitable for everyone; adaptable for all languages, culture, history, and personalities.”

If  you haven’t checked out the brand, they’re definitely one to keep bookmarked. You can also see the above ties and more in Anthem Wares shop.

Scout Sixteen - Ernest Alexander New York

It’s Tee Time

Beloved brand Ernest Alexander recently launched their heritage tee-shirt collection, aptly-named the Logan & Turner tees. Both tee-shirts are incredibly luxe with silky-soft organic cotton and made in the USA. I can proudly say I wore my Logan Tee in Olive for three straight days. It’s honestly that amazing.

The Ernest Alexander crew asked a few menswear bloggers to style, fit and try on the tees. We each have different styles but the tees easily transitioned into our wardrobes – and – I’m sure I can speak on behalf of the guys – I think I’ve found my new favorite shirt. Enjoyed getting to talk shop with these killer men’s bloggers:

Jace from Plain T-Shirt
Zeph from Zepharc

Odin Owari 02

I love a great escape.

I’ve never had the opportunity to visit Japan but this most amazing scent from ODIN leaves me breathless. Inspired by the Japanese province Owari, Owari 02 has a masculine thrill like nothing I’ve ever experienced. Rare oriental mandarins and crushed grapefruit leaves feel natural and add an exotic sucré to the mix, while its heart beats with Cubeb pepper and tonkin musk from the Chinese mountains.

Buy this scent or check out ODIN’s other killer fragrances.
