Parma-based Anderson’s knows good belts. Founded by Carlo Valenti in 1966, the brand has been manufacturing men’s belts using the highest quality Italian leathers and materials from around Europe for more than 50 years, racking up decades of skill and experience. Not content with leaving it to machines, each Anderson’s belt is still handmade and hand-finished in their family-run Parma factory. With at least 100 steps going into the production of each belt this is no mean feat but it does ensure that each one is of the highest standard.
As well as this unique quality, Anderson’s (so named after Valenti’s favourite Savile Row tailor, Anderson and Sheppard) is best known for its woven belts that come in neutral or multi-coloured fabrics, as well as its supple leather belts made from naturally tanned hides. Care, attention and passion is put into each Anderson’s belt – and it shows. It will last a lifetime, too.
Originally designed for US military use in 1952 and therefore dedicated to rigorous quality, Eastpak signed a contract with the Pentagon over 60 years ago. Twenty years later, Eastpak‘s bags were taken ‘out of the woods and into the city’ targeting college students on the East coast, fast forward to the wild abandon of the ’80s where Eastpak introduced the then revolutionary technique of printing nylon fabrics in four colours. Today, Eastpak continues to make waves with street-smart bags and backpacks for people who live, work and play in the city. Lately collaborating with Undercover, MSGM and Raf Simons – these are quality, designer accessories you won’t want to miss.
Master & Dynamic
Design-led, crafted from durable premium leather and steel and designed to produce a warm, rich sound, Master & Dynamic creates the best headphones and earphones you could own. Founded in 2014, this New York start-up has shaken up the audio industry in just three years, receiving both critical and commercial success thanks to its quality of design, sound and build.
For luxurious lightweight and seamless socks for men, look no further than Pantherella. The brand has been crafting socks in its Leicester factory since 1937, where it began as Midlands Hosiery Mills. In 1945, founder Louis Goldschmidt changed the name to Pantherella Fine English Socks with the aim to create fine gauge socks rather than the traditional bulky, uncomfortable styles.Today, Pantherella continues to create socks using the finest cotton in designs that range from classic black and grey, to bold colours and innovative prints.
