11 days till Christmas…Santa wants to know if you can you keep a Secrid?

Secrid wallets are known for their infamous cardprotector. As times are forever changing so are the use of bills and coins. Modern day technology has allowed us to carry high-tech cards with built in computer chips, which holds a lot of our personal information. Although, this is quite convenient it does allow for hackers out there to scan the chips through our wallets and use the information to carry out identity theft and fraud. Another word for this could also be digital pickpocketing.

Secrid’s aluminum cardprotector is designed with RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology. This blocks the scanners, by acting like a firewall, from being able to read the computer chips embedded in our cards, thus, offering us a peace of mind and protection.

All Secrid wallets are made with fine detail and care in the Netherlands. The cardprotector is the heart of the Secrid wallet’s design however the wallet also features a unique card slide, is crafted with quality leather and boasts a sleek and stylish design.

Give the gift of safety, comfort and style this holiday season with the Secrid wallet. Versatile, functional and esthetically pleasing and this product also comes with a 2-year warranty.

For instructions on how to use the Secrid wallet please see link below:

12 days till Christmas…Enjoy and indulge this holiday season with Royal Apothic

Royal Apothic caters to men’s and women’s tastes alike. For men we carry the Heroes & Aristocrats line featuring top quality men’s grooming products and kits. For the lovely ladies we carry the mini Eau de Perfume and the luxurious hand cremes available in various scents. Royal Apothic uses a highly delicate formula that is truly designed to enhance the performance of its products for the skin and body. The men’s products are packaged in an elegant gift box that is both modern and traditional while the women’s products showcase a vintage design.  A dedicated cult of fans have made this product line a must-have!

The Royal Apothic line is the creation by Sean O’Mara, a Los Angeles and London based designer. O’Mara started his career working for prominent and established companies like Proctor & Gamble and Murad Global Skincare.   He worked with many influential brands, so surrounding himself with glamorous photo shoot settings and gorgeous locations were of second nature. O’Mara was inspired, after directing many photo shoots, “about translating the glamour and elegance of these big-budget campaigns into everyday space.”

This line of thinking drove O’Mara into a secondary career path. He had built a reputation for taking lackluster properties and turning them into glamorous spaces. His unique eye for design quickly gained him popularity in the Los Angeles and London markets.

In 2006, he found his inspiration in a Notting Hill bookstore. O’Mara came across, a centuries-old apothecary manual that would spark the idea for the sophisticated Royal Apothic line which allowed him to combine both his beauty and design background. O’Mara says, “I wanted to create a product so beautiful, you just have to leave it out on display, “And a formula so decadent you just have to use it.” The Royal Apothic line is truly exceptional from the inside out!

Tumi Smart Key Fob- A perfect gift for a person who loses his keys

This smart key fob works with most any Bluetooth-enabled cell phones to manage calls and alert you if your phone or keys are left behind. It offers the following functions: wirelessly connects to your phone and answers incoming calls with the push of a button within a range of 30 feet, notifies you when you are separated from your phone or any object to which the key fob is attached, works as a powerful, compact speakerphone while driving or anywhere you go, and acts as an one-touch emergency dialer.

Dunhill Laser Keyboard and Chassis Case

Alfred Dunhill has been associated with innovation for nearly 120 years – a theme continued this season with an amazing ‘laser keyboard’ featuring a unique Dunhill finish and a Chassis leather carry case, designed with the frequent traveler in mind.

This small black box with a discreet AD logo, connects via Bluetooth to devices such as smart phones and tablets (including iOS or Android) and projects a keyboard design onto any table or surface in front of you.

The super bright laser projection allows you to use a full sized keyboard while having your device arranged in front of you, simply as a screen.

The unit is able to instantly sense where you type with variables such as regional variation, sensitivity, brightness and volume easily adjusted.

At a touch of a button (on the keyboard), it can also be switched to multi-touch mouse functionality – ideal for manipulating images in a document.

The unit has a built in Lithium-ion battery which can be recharged via a USB cable connected to a laptop or
similar device. This is very simple to set up and use in almost any situation, making it ideal for the traveller.

It is presented in an attractive and durable Chassis case with a pocket for the charge cable.

This case also acts as a stand for a phone – making it easy to work on documents on a train or even in a coffee shop!

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.
