Dead stock finds new life.

These colorful bracelets were not meant to be bracelets.
Fifty years ago when this material was made, it was slung over the sweaty shoulders of bushy haired rock stars.

This is dead stock fabric once used for Guitar straps. Jimi Hendrix owned one made from the same fabric used to make the bracelets pictured here. Can you guess which one? (Second from top right).
Channel your inner Acid Rock star and pile a few on.

Seriously un-serious cashmere.

So you have some cashmere, a black scarf, maybe a brown cap and gloves.
You know it, you appreciate it's luxury. But you think it's time to kick it up a notch.
Then these 8 ply cashmere hats are for you. Probably some of the best cashmere you will own, but it looks like something that your best friend Kimmy wore on the ski school bus, circa 1973.
Some are reversible if you want to hide the outrageous patterns. But really, why would you want to?
With one of these pulled down over your ears, cold damp November does not stand a chance.
