Wolverine | Elizabeth St. NYC Outpost

If you are in need of a kickass pair of boots (that will last a lifetime) and find yourself anywhere near 242 Elizabeth St. in NYC, The Wolverine Company Store should be your destination. Since their grand opening last September, they've built up a solid offering from brands like Tellason Denim, Tanner Goods, Brooklyn Dry Goods, Imogene Willie and Filson (and a great selection of General Knot & Co.). Both Mens and Womens footwear and clothing- they're ready for you. Stop by when you have a chance.

Pearl Paint | The Tools You Need

 I am surely not alone in my sadness, hearing of Pearl Paint closing it's legendary Canal Street flagship store. It played an important role in my years at Parsons in New York City. Without having Pearl Paint so easily accessible and so fully stocked with every conceivable art supply known to man, I would have been up a tree. Along with every other art school student and artist in New York.

Packaging: The Ins & The Outs

Anyone who knows us, knows that we care a great deal about our packaging. Years of receiving our purchases from companies who send their products off in poly bags and carelessly thrown into boxes keeps us motivated. We figure that the entire package, not just the contents, should be given equal attention and that you will appreciate (as we do) the full presentation of opening your purchase when it arrives at your door.

Where Fashion Meets The Pavement

We're happy to meet our new friend Jared Grellner (The Fashitectuer) who picked up his vintage 1970s Pendleton Patchwork skinny via Hammer & Awl out in Seattle.

Everything Has A Story

Anyone who reads through our product descriptions knows that we love a good story. As with all of our fabrics, everything has a story. Everything. Being curious, forever asking questions, finding what makes things tick, a story always emerges...

Brian Bubb | Setting The Direction

From as early as grade school, I was fascinated with beautiful fabrics. 

I used to tag along with my mother to fabric shops where she would find what she needed for new skirts, dresses, and blouses for herself. I was more interested in yardage to hang on the walls of my room- intermingled with my posters of The Who, The Cure and the like. A bit of an odd mix, but it all came together neatly in my head under the heading of "inspiration".

General Knot & Co. Fall/Winter 2013 Look-Book

With the designing of each collection, comes genuine excitement for what we will find through our collective researching, hunting, and collaborating. This season, we found ourselves knee deep in vintage fabrics with rich warm berry tones and patterns with painterly textures.

Pop Up Flea NYC 2013

 

As for any list of eagerly awaited annual events, ACL's Pop Up Flea in NYC would land squarely at the top. Yes, it's an opportunity to sell our wares, but equally important- it is an opportunity to see old friends and meet new ones with whom we've only had the chance to visit through social media. Okay, we do love Instagram, but it's a far cry from seeing and speaking in person...

GQ Guide To Online Shopping | General Knot & Co.

I have to admit that my heartbeat went into double-time when we first received a personal order with the mailing address of GQ @ 4 Times Sq. NYC.  Not a moment easily forgotten.

Side Project Skateboards

Yes, there is an endless array of skate decks, decorated with world class graphic art (and plenty decorated with total garbage). The skateboards themselves though have remained pretty much the same for as long as I can remember. When a craftsman (artist) is able to take something as familiar as the skateboard and transform it into a truly beautiful piece of art, hey- it pays to take notice.

The General Nosh- Favorite Fall One Dish Meals

Fall is a very busy time of year at General Knot Headquarters and our favorite go-to dish for dinner is this delicious and simple Tender & Crisp Chicken recipe from Jamie Oliver's book " Jamie's Dinners". You can do this dish with only legs, but we like to throw in some thighs as well.  Make sure to add the "optional" cannellini beans.  This makes the dish incredibly creamy.  Try it tonight.  We guarantee you will put this meal on regular dinner rotation in your home.

Kickstart | Toys For Boys

 

By way of the Internet, this big beautiful world of ours gets smaller and smaller- in a good way. Receiving an out-of-the-blue friendly email introduction from a shop in Reykjavik, Iceland would have been unheard of ten years ago. Said shop is Kickstart, a brick & mortar and online shop offering life's key pieces to guys who live to have fun. 

We fell for Kickstart right away ("you had me at hello") and felt the need to share. We were lucky enough to have a few minutes to ask Jon Hreinsson, the man behind Kickstart, a few questions:
