Looking for the new and novel at the shows

by Harry Sheff

Some of the things that caught my eye at the shows in New York and Las Vegas over the summer: Animal print shoes; Japanese hatchets and travel chopsticks (made from recycled Japanese baseball bats!); cufflinks made out of antler, bone, jade and other exotic materials; bright pants in linens, silks, gabardines and wools from Andy Stinson; silk bandana pocket squares; wild Danish style; new grooming supplies from Imperial Barber; and colorful shoe laces from Hook + Albert and Stolen Riches.
