New brands, new styles for the shop…

Hagen, Anderson Belts, and Common Threads are just a few of the new brands that have debuted this past week and have completely changed our stylization for the season!

Hagen is an exceptional shirt brand that is exclusive to small specialty men’s retailers across the country. The owner and designer was a lead shirt designer for Robert Talbott for decades. His vision is a mix of Italian fabrication with classic traditional designs.

The fit is a touch bigger than the Eton contemporary shirts, and we will be carrying his dress shirts as well.

Anderson Belts have been in business for 50 years!

Each braided belt is crafted in Italy with a 100-step production process. This is a second-generation company that thrives in the upper-end men’s fashion arena. The feel of their tubular woven braided belts simply must be experienced.

Beginning this season you will notice us pairing our suits, slacks, and more with these braided belts. There are countless color combinations to either enhance your outfit, or let the belt stand out on its own!

This is the inaugural season for Common Threads. The brand was designed and developed by myself and five other men’s clothing stores situated throughout the United States. We all will be carrying the same shirts, styles, and sizes.

The goal was to produce a hybrid shirt brand that can be worn untucked and paired with jeans, as well as tucked in with khakis or slacks. The shirts can also be worn with a jacket for business or date night. The feel of these fabrics is incredibly luxurious: super high count cottons, de-combed flannels, and cashmere-cotton mixes. Each shirt has a single thread on the right cuff sleeve eyelet that stands out from the rest – this is our common thread.

Each store will take a percentage of the proceeds from the retail sales and set it aside. At the end of the season we will be donating those dollars to a local charity of our choice. This is our common goal and purpose: to live, thrive, and enhance our respective communities.

Corporate Events and Gifts from Ken’s

NOW is the time to plan your holiday events and corporate gifts!

Ken’s corporate outreach brings unique gifts to businesses, and we can even come to you! Carolina and I were invited to bring our custom cologne to one of our clients’ events, and what a success it was! We spent over three hours assisting this team of extraordinary men and women in choosing their own custom fragrances, and they went home with more than 25 bottles of cologne and parfum.

The haberdashery’s other corporate products include:

  • local Texas hand poured candles
  • crushed silk scarves for men and women
  • luxe throws for the home or office
  • skin and face care products for men and women
  • local handmade pens
  • leather products

Thanks for reading this exciting installment of Haberdashery News. We can’t wait to see you this season.

Your Ken’s team, plus Mario Ranieri from Live LIVE, on a night out.
