The Gentleman’s Stiffener – Moustashe Wax

Posted by on Jul 17, 2012 in Lifestyle | 0 comments

Captain Fawcett’s Moustache Wax. One of the most intriguing products I have ever come across. The product “Moustache Wax” is one that we have been asked for at Revolucion for the last few years. Perhaps due to the Movember Moustache Charity movement. The “stache” is making somewhat of a comeback from the finer gentleman years! Captain Fawcett’s I feel is leading the way with Moustache wax that gives a “Stiff” upper lip! Available in Sandalwood, Lavender, and Ylang Ylang. The Capt Fawcett uses only finest natural ingredients and essential oils for his stache waxes. So whether you wear a Natural, Hungarian, Dali, English, Imperial, Freestyle, Fu Manchu, Pancho Villa, Handlebar, Horseshoe to name a few styles of moustaches, come by and visit the Capt for your Stache needs!  ...

Jetsam Wallets

Jetsam Wallets

Posted by on Jun 2, 2012 in Lifestyle | 0 comments

I first heard of Jetsam in New York while attending the gift show.  It was a pleasure to meet Laura the designer of Jetsam.  We are happy to be representing them here in Vancouver, BC. About Jetsam Wallets Debut Jetsam was inspired by the time-honored style of iconic male figures. I’ve taken historic masculine textiles and reinterpreted them for the future. It’s old-school haberdashery for the guy who doesn’t wear a suit. The initial Jetsam line-up includes 4 editions of the classic 3-pocket billfold. The Prepster edition features dapper patterns and traditional hues from reclaimed classic neckties The Uncle Larry edition features bold patterns and bright colors from reclaimed retro 70s-era neckties The Natty Professor edition features classic tweed herringbone from reclaimed vintage men’s jackets The Spiffy Lumberjack edition features colorful plaids from reclaimed vintage shirts I’m all about sustainability, so I’ve made Jetsam as eco-friendly as possible. Jetsam is a 16th-century term for unwanted material that was thrown overboard to lighten a ship’s load. Each Jetsam wallet is a product of unwanted or discarded materials, such as end-run fabrics, cast-off clothing and vintage textiles. Each wallet also comes packaged in a recycled gift box, perfect for gift-giving.   Company History In August of 2011, Jetsam™, a new line of eco-friendly wallets made from vintage menswear, made its debut. The roots of Jetsam lie in a handmade line founded in 2007.  It started off as a micro-enterprise, with all products manufactured in-house by designer and founder Laura Skelton. Inspired by the retro style of 70s men’s fashion, the Necktie Wallet® debuted that first year.  2009 marked the introduction of several new reconstructed wallet designs. After nearly four years of growth, the new Jetsam line continues to embody a commitment to sustainable and socially responsible practices, sourcing vintage and end-run materials and recycled packaging in addition to keeping production close to home, so you can feel good about what you keep in your pocket. About the Designer Coming from a background in sustainable architecture, Columbia University graduate Laura Skelton is the founder and designer behind the new Jetsam™ line. Since her early teenage years, Laura has concocted refashioned accessories and clothing from vintage materials, roaming the aisles of thrift stores and costume departments for inspiration. When she’s away from Jetsam, Laura loves creating elaborate costumes and clothing from interesting junk. A dress she constructed entirely from the Sunday New York Times was recently featured in several international newspapers, and a handbag she crafted from an old childrens’ sleeping bag was published in the book Refashioned Bags. Laura currently lives in San Diego, where she enjoys competitive potlucks and brewing craft beer....

European craftsmanship, quality materials and patented technology, plus over 175 years of refinement and innovation has meant that Wolf Designs has had time to get it right. A Wolf Designs case is one to be proud of. Wolf Designs stretches over 5 generations of history. Starting in Germany in 1834, then moving to Sweden, England and now America, it’s a legacy of over 175 years to be proud of. Phillipp Wolf I was a silversmith from Germany who found that by selling his silver products in beautiful boxes his trade dramatically increased. It wasn’t long before he was selling more of his boxes than he was of his silverware. Thus Wolf Designs began. Phillipp Wolf II under the tutelage of his father moved the business to Malmö in southern Sweden after a enjoying the weather over a holiday there. His sons Ernst and Philipp III continued the enterprise, with Philipp often taking long trips for months at a time to the opening market in America. His son, Philipp Wolf IV moved the Wolf Designs to England and set up a new high automated factory employing over 300 workers in Wales, it was recognized as the largest manufacturer of jewellery boxes in Great Britain and much of Europe. Today Wolf Designs is under the leadership of Simon Philipp Wolf V whom took the challenge to take on the American and Canadian markets by moving the base of operations to California, with the guidance from his father, Philipp IV, and with new technologies and innovations, Wolf Designs has become the market leader in its field.
