There are two new box options this month:
You can never have too many ties.
Though with this lineup, you might forget about any others in your wardrobe. They’re all made by our good friends at Gilded Age, who specialize in quality-driven, vintage-inspired threads for modern getups.
Pick any three from the collection and watch ’em bring new life to your closet, whether you’re buttoning up for work every day, adding some style to a casual getup, or just hitting the occasional wedding.
We helped design them to capture all the right details, from the fabrics to the construction. The 2.5″ width is slim but not skinny, and each one has a contrast lining to add a hidden cool factor. The results are perfectly modern, plenty versatile, and ready to take your outfits to the next level.
You don’t need much to command the kitchen. But if there’s one piece of equipment everyone from pros to newcomers should invest in, a good knife is at the top of the list. Use it well and you’ll breeze through your mise-en-place, making quick and precise work of whatever recipe you’re tackling.
8” Chef’s Knife, Ludwig Schiff
This is your kitchen’s new best friend. The eight inch chef’s style is the ideal one-size-fits-all addition to your culinary arsenal, since it’s easy to handle and perfect for almost any kind of cut. Slice vegetables, trim meat, chop herbs, or tackle nearly anything else.
This one’s made from high carbon, ice tempered stainless steel from Sweden, which gets hand crafted by old school knife makers in Solingen, Germany – home to centuries of top quality knife making. The blade starts off as a raw steel billet, which then gets hand tempered and ground to just the right shape with a perfect center balance, a full tang, and a razor-sharp edge. They’re so good that word of mouth is the only publicity Ludwig Schiff has ever needed in the 60 years they’ve been in the business.
They’ve been the knives of choice at top tier restaurants and kitchens the world over (including the White House), and expert chefs like Julia Child and Anthony Bourdain. The sturdy yet sharp build, detail-oriented craftsmanship, and unbeatable price have made them an under-the-radar favorite that easily beat out more expensive options. Simply put: it’s the best knife you’ve never heard of.
To help round out your culinary skills, we’ve also packed in a blade saver to keep your knife in good shape even when it’s loose in the drawer, and a chef’s towel for wiping down counters, drying your knife, or using as a makeshift pot holder like the pros do.
Dust off your cutting board, tie on an apron, and bring your appetite.
Which Bespoke Post box are you picking this month? The ties in the Knotted box retail for $55 each, so I’m very impressed with the value, but my husband doesn’t wear ties that often… I’m torn between the two boxes this month!
