American Quilters | Vintage Textiles

 

 

All I needed to see were the words "American" & "Vintage" in the same sentence and my attention was drawn. Never mind that I was not just the only man in the room, but the only non-retirement aged person in the room as well. Yeah, well, vintage textiles and a mutual admiration for masterful craftsmanship have a way of pulling birds of a feather together (textile geeks).

It's Always A Gift | GK & Co.


 

General Knot & Co. is Always a Gift!

You will never see a General Knot & Co. purchase arrive at your door flat-packed in a poly bag, in a box filled with bubble wrap. We appreciate you coming to our shop and want you to enjoy the whole experience.

Whenever we create a design or an element for our online shop, we always consider the "experience" that our customers will potentially have. We wholeheartedly feel that both our customers and the products which we offer are special. To deliver one's purchases with anything less in mind would diminish the entire experience.

Hatch Show Print | A Working Letterpress Museum

 

I knew about Hatch Show Print before I actually knew about them. I had seen their posters in shop windows and restaurants and even wine labels they had created, but never knew who was behind the beautiful letterpress print work.

1930's Patchwork- A Country Wedding

 

When designing ties (or anything, for that matter), it often makes sense to consider the possible end use- or end user of the designs.  Sometimes, our vintage fabrics already have a plan of their own.

How to tie a Four-In-Hand knot

 

A universally well-liked knot, the Four-In-Hand is also the simplest to tie. More or less, it's the Half Windsor minus a wrap, so you end up with a smaller knot and a somewhat neater and tighter look. All in all, all knots are good-looking. Just choose the one that speaks to the occasion. Hey, there's some sound advice for you.  Now, go forth young man!

Kempt Featuring a GK & Co. Favorite

Kempt, a great editorial division of Urban Daddy, wrote a solid post about one of our most popular ties- The Seersucker & Folk Art Two Tone Tie. We love their take on the design, really appreciating the era from which the pattern came from and the tongue-n-cheek General Knot & Co. ethos- "It’s an Eisenhower-era, archival folk-art print—along the lines of your Gitman Vintage shirts or a Levi’s throwback—only now it’s found its way onto your tie rack."

Thanks for the introductions Kempt- glad to call you friends!

Fresh Paint | Showing Your True Colors

  

Growing up in Fairfield County Connecticut, I was quite used to colorfully painted front doors. A lot of Hunter Green and Cobalt Blue in my town, but the Londoners definitely take the cake when it comes to putting it all out there. A slightly different look from what we North East American Prepsters would promote, London residents take their cue from their famously rebellious British individualism- as in Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood.  With all that said though, I could actually see these painted doors and shutters fitting right in up North on the Cape or down South in Charlestown. Hmmm... it may be time for a fresh coat on my front door.

Gurley's Milling Co. | 1950's Flour Sacks

 

With my college years starting down south in North Carolina (Greensboro, to be exact), I remember driving through Princeton, N.C. on my way to the Outerbanks. Not a bad drive, knowing that the beaches lay just ahead.

1952 Cunningham C-3

 

Tomorrow's Sunday New York Times will have an article on the front page of its Automobiles section about his beautiful 1952 Cunningham C-3 sports car. I have to admit being ignorant to this gorgeous motor car before receiving the Sunday section in the driveway this Saturday morning. If only I had known about it when I was granted my three wishes by the genie in the bottle just last week.
