Nautical style and Newport go hand in hand, so when I was first introduced to Sailormade, a nautical accessory line inspired by life in, on, and around the water, I knew it would be a perfect fit in the City by the Sea. Originally launched in 2011, Sailormade is now headquartered in Boston and the entire line of leather and nautical rope bracelets and leather belts for men and women are made in the USA. As the founders say:

“The essence of Sailormade is our collective connection to the water… Whether you’re into SUP, kite boarding, sailing, kayaking, swimming or just sitting on the beach staring out at the sea, you know water is part of your DNA. It’s the place that takes you exactly as you are but always leaves you somehow changed…for the better.”

The Brummel Hook clasp is the cornerstone of all Sailormade bracelet designs. Also known as the Inglefield Clip and the Sister Hook, the design dates back to the early 1890s and has been traditionally used to secure lines, sheets and signal flag halyards so that the flag can be hoisted. Sailormade’s Brummel Hook clasps come in solid brass, dark or powder Rhodium, rose gold, or stainless silver finish.

Sailormade’s leather bracelets are each carefully hand-braided while the nylon bracelets can withstand the harshest elements. I’ve been asked repeatedly about The Endeavor single twisted marine rope bracelet with the brass Brummel Hook I’ve been sporting this summer,
which is available at Style Newport on Thames Street.WOMENS_BELTS_1

Another new wardrobe staple of mine: the Sailormade Cargo belt (at left). Made with supple vegetable-dyed saddle leather and finished with a solid brass custom natural brass snap hook, the belt is undeniably nautical (by nature) with its  No.2 snap hook. 

The Coral Collection also merges rope detailing and cuff designs, rings and necklaces.
