I’m sure the
waspier preppier of you are already familiar with Rhode Island’s Kiel James Patrick. For those without relatives with names like Dee-Dee and Boop-Beep, the label proffers a handsome range of N’East-inspired men’s and women’s accessories, all of which are crafted in the Ocean State from locally (like, within 50 miles) sourced materials. The co.’s Croffix Sailing Belts are made from Italian pebbled leather and hand-braided nautical cord (by RI’s own T.W. Evans). Finished with a cotton tartan backing and American-made brass hardware, the belts are a welcome and well-built addition to any summer wardrobe. Sixteen colors / patterns are available (I still can’t decide which is my favorite), and the shipping – within the US – is free.
