Minnesota-based tie makers Pierrepont Hicks just released their FW 2010 lookbook. Shot by Caesy Oney and directed by Ben Ferencz of The Design Cooperative, the pictures do a fantastic job of capturing the feeling of a bright, crisp day in autumn.

The shoot’s location–St. Ignatius, Montana–is an appropriately rustic backdrop to the sturdy wools and organic colors that feature heavily throughout the collection itself. It’s also jumped right to the top of my “places I had never heard of but now desperately want to see in person” list. Freaking gorgeous scenery.

Now, I’ll grant that a lot of folks (myself included) don’t spend their days wandering through the long grass in idyllic fields and then crafting furniture with just-cut wood inside of remote cabins. But damn, don’t these shots make you want to?

The collection, all made in New York, is available online now. Hit up the shop to get your hands on a handsome piece of neckwear (banjo not included).

During market week, I was lucky enough to attend a gathering at the Ace Hotel hosted by Taylor Stitch, Pierrepont Hicks, and the inimitable beltmaker Billy Moore. It was a great time all around, complete with moonshine, Six Point beer, and good people.

One of those good people was Larry Felitto from J.W. Hulme Co. We talked for a while about Minnesota, quality leather goods, and the (unbelievably awesome) Sporting Originals line from J.W. Hulme. An altogether enjoyable experience.

Larry also showed me a couple of handmade notebooks that he personally put together in the back of the J.W. Hulme shop with leftover leather pieces and US-sourced hardware. They aren’t for sale via any retail outlet at the moment, but if Larry listened to my impassioned argument (and clearly, he should have) the J.W. Hulme folks might start the process of turning these into a commercially available piece sometime in the future.

The added bonus of the whole affair? A notebook of my very own. Massive thanks to Larry for that, because this thing is goddamn awesome.

Also, if you’re in the area, be sure to check out the Northern Grade pop-up men’s market in Minneapolis. It goes down on September 11th, and as you can see from the flyer below, there’s a solid gathering labels on hand. I wish I could make it myself, because it looks like it’s gonna be a top notch showing.
