The Gentleman’s Stiffener – Moustashe Wax

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

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

Jetsam WalletsIn 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

Laura SkeltonComing 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.

Wolf Design Watch Winders

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. Specialising in jewellery boxes and watch winders, Wolf Designs offers top-of-the-line five star cases for its customers using its special patented technology.

Gendarme Fragrance

I was in Las Vegas wandering around to see what i could find. This is where i came across Gendarme. I had asked the clerk what was their best selling fragrance, as i noticed an empty shelf from which the last bottle of Gendarme had just sold off of.

After trying the tester i was sold and upon my return to Revolucion (Vancouver) i immediately contacted Gendarme in Hollywood. I had the pleasure to deal with Topper Schroeder the creator of Gendarme. A pleasant fellow that through his own interest in finding a hypo-allergenic fragrance decided to make his own. What he created was a sensual yet professional and down-to-business cologne that caught everyone’s attention.

The classic crisp, clean, fresh scent that is simply Gendarme contains lemon and lime, bergamot, lavender, and just a hint of jasmine and lilac, there is nothing on the market like it.

Just a few sprays and everyone around you will take notice of the citrus and fruity scent and be drawn in to you just a little bit closer and for just a little bit longer. ; ) Enjoy

M-Clip “Finally, a money clip that works.®”

I like the tag line “Finally, a money clip that works” cause we’ve been on the look out for just such a money clip. Many of the money clips I’ve come across are either to tight to get any money into or to loose to secure any money.

The M-Clip is sure to impress anyone looking to trim the waste-line on the ole’ wallet and go to something sure to be an attention getter! The slick action of the M-Clip slides to give you the angle you need. It opens up allowing for secure clipping of your hard earned money…and credit cards.

From superior metals, highly machined tolerances for each component part, and individually selected alligator hides, the M-Clip® money clip is designed and hand assembled with one goal in mind: to make the best, most functional and highest quality money clip you can buy.

Handmade in the USA, M-Clip also has a warranty that covers materials and workmanship on all functional components for life.

The M-Clip® money clip is truly the last money clip you will ever need.
