As a Philosopher of Fashion I asked my self once again the question of the moment: how can accessories my ( what shall I call it?) my minimalistic(!?) male(!?) wardrobe with little means but yet with loads of creative inpact? or put in other words: What choices does the modern ( broke) gentleman has to bring a little bit excitement to a reduced sartorial state of wardrobe misery?
As 'godess Fate' is being good to me right now I received an mail from the new e-retailer boticca.com introducing a new brand of neck wear accessories for the man about town which I immediately fell in love with ( and not only because of the really affordable prices...) the New York brand STNTN.
STNTN is a neck wear line created by husband and wife, Stanton and Rubi Jones. STNTN's debut collection is inspired by looks worn in the late 19th and early 20's centuries that they found while browsing the New York Public Library's photo archives.

What I love about the product is not only of course, the brilliant idea to re- produce Edwardian neck wear for the modern day trendsetter but also every piece is crafted in New York from US-made organic fabrics and named of the year of that the inspiration photo was taken.
STNTN shows that innovation and tradition can create new and interesting products which can also support businesses locally.
STNTN is stocked at boticca.com. Pictures and inspiration for blog text taken from boticca.com
