Take the hard line with Vitaly’s Kusari bracelet. The chunky, stainless steel piece has a modern rocker vibe that complements off-duty gear (think denim, plaid and lots of black or white tees) and works to add a finishing detail to casual evening looks.
What is Kusari? Kursai was used in samurai armour from the 1270s but particularly from the Nambokucho period of 1336-1392. The rings were lacquered black to prevent rusting and were always stitched onto a backing of cloth or leather. Kusari was often concealed entirely between layers of cloth.

Woolrich has been synonymous with quality outdoor clothing for over 180 years. The company got its start in 1830 when John Rich, an immigrant from England, built his first woolen mill in Plum Run, Pennsylvania. Today the little village of Woolrich is still headquarters for the company, where they continue to produce quality products like this buffalo check throw. A great gift idea, and a perfect addition for those cold winter nights.
“Every click of every loom in the Woolrich woolen mill tells a truly American tale. The story begins with the founding steps of John Rich selling wool by Mule Cart and continues through a new era of proud American manufacturing.
Founded in 1830, the Woolrich of today remains uniquely committed to creating enduring blankets of unmistakable quality.”
