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.

Whisky Stones™

When I came across the Whisky Stones (Whiskey Stones)  they won my heart!
I quote “Put a chill in your whisky without diluting the dram of your dreams”  Beautifully said, especially since I had been a Drambuie drinker in the past there was an immediate appreciation for this fine milled stones that have made there way in to many a dram!

We recently attended and sponsored the Hopscotch 2011 Event where the Whisky Stones were featured and the Whisky Lovers were celebrated.

7/8″ cubes | Natural

Milled in Vermont by the oldest soapstone workshop in the US. Add three chilled stones to your next dram, let stand for 5 minutes and enjoy. Set of 9 stones + muslin storage bag. Not for use with larger volume drinks.

And here is the history….

Co-founder Andrew Hellman (Connecticut) Andrew took inspiration from a bag of loose stones found in his Swedish grandfather’s liquor cabinet to come up with an American interpretation of a centuries-old Scandinavian tradition.

Vermont Soapstone (Vermont) Over 150 years ago, local Vermonters began mining and milling soapstone found in their fields for a variety of purposes. As America’s oldest soapstone workshop, many of their original techniques are still in use today.
