Saphir Médaille D'Or is the highest-end collection of shoe care products available worldwide. Made in France, this exclusive line has its origins in formulations that earned Saphir the award of the GOLD MEDAL, PARIS 1925. Composed of turpentine, vegetable waxes, and mink oils, its formula has remained unchanged and has not suffered the technical progress of chemistry such as the addition of silicones, resins and other petroleum-based products. The quality of Saphir’s MDO collection is immediately evident when opened as one enjoys the aroma of the pine trees used in its turpentine. Your shoes deserve great polish. Don't disappoint them!

Drake’s London is steeped in the history and traditions of working with the finest cloth makers, and using age-old hand crafting techniques to produce the highest quality, luxury ties and leather accessories that appeal to the old and young.

Current co-owner, Michael Hill, is rooted in the history of the brand through his father Charles, a former partner, and having worked at Drake’s renowned Italian Mill suppliers after college. He now utilities these old sensibilities, combined with his own, unique designs and styles, to create the perfect, hand-rolled ties that last a life, suit all occasions, and put Drake’s a cut above the rest.

Under Michael Hill and co-owner and founder of The Armoury Mark Cho's combined leadership, Drake's of London has become the largest independent producer of handmade neckties in England and emerged, arguably, as one of the greatest companies still making handmade English ties in the 21st Century. We are privileged to offer them to you here at The Hanger Project.

Santa Maria Novella was founded in the 13th Century by Dominican Friars. Ever since, they have been distinguished as purveyors of fine soaps and perfumes. All of SMN's products are made in small batches in Florence, Italy, using time-honored traditional methods. Everything they make is incredible and exudes an aesthetic just not commonly found anymore.

La Cordonnerie Anglaise (The English Cordwainer or Shoemaker) has been refining their expertise in wood and leather craft since 1885. Based in France, they make what are unquestionably the most well-crafted and beautiful shoeshine accoutrement in the world. Their brushes and daubers are carved from solid rosewood and their shoeshine kits are the best I have ever seen. These items are things that you purchase once and keep forever. So, if you are going to just make one purchase, purchase the best shoeshine brushes, daubers, and kits available anywhere -- those from La Cordonnerie Anglaise. The Hanger Project is proud to be the second-longest U.S. Stockist in the United States.

Codis Maya Cufflinks are hand crafted in London by jeweler Roshini Aluwihare. Her cufflinks are known for their understated elegance and rich glass enameling.

Since 1854, Maglia Francesco has been manufacturing some of the world's finest handmade umbrellas. Requiring no less than 70 steps to complete, each umbrella is a masterpiece of classic elegance and refinement. Based in Milan, Italy, Maglia Francesco is one of the last remaining great umbrella artisans.

Ettinger can proudly boast to having the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championship and His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales as clients. Looking at the company’s beautifully, hand-crafted leather products, from wallets to travel bags, it is easy to see why.

Ettinger was founded in 1934 by Gerry Ettinger, considered at the time to be the go to person for quality leather goods. In the 1950s he took over a small, but established leather manufacturing business in the hot spot of Clerkenwell, London, and the brand quickly took off.

British in name and make well-made umbrellas are beautiful things in their own right, and I’ve been collecting them for a few years now. Most of mine are from small workshops in Italy, some are from France, and some are vintage. A number are also from Britain, as no country – no matter how skilled their craftsmen – give umbrellas the same kind of heritage. Perhaps it’s because of our image of the ideal English gentleman, with a bowler hat on his head and the crook of an umbrella on his arm. Or perhaps it’s because presidents, royalty, and movie stars have always gotten their umbrellas from here.

Inis Meáin Knitting Co. is as much a story about a small island's rich tradition in knitwear as it is about one man's resolve to save an island.

The middle island of the Aran chain, Inis Meáin is often overlooked, receiving just a small fraction of the Arans’ tourism. Herein lies its charm. So undiscovered over the past century, the island and its customary way of life are incredibly well preserved. The islanders, unable to rely on tourism, must still support themselves by farming the island’s rich soil, raising lamb and cattle that graze the island’s abundant grassy fields, and fishing the traitorous seas that buffet the island’s ancient limestone walls.

From a small workshop in naples in some of the travel guides to Naples, you’ll read a warning to “not go down small dark alleyways, especially in the Spanish Quarter.” It’s not bad advice, although perhaps often overstated. The Spanish Quarter is a small section of the city that has higher unemployment and crime rates, and it isn’t particularly pleasant to walk around. The cobblestone streets are narrow, and are flanked on either side by dirty buildings with peeling, wheat pasted fliers. Above is usually a network of wires holding people’s wet laundry. The only charm in this area might be in the loud children and louder Vespas, which zip and up down the roads on warm afternoons.
