The gentlemen of Art Comes First can be classified as satorial alchemists and their eye for fashion is as sharp as the scissors they use to create. They have collaborated with The Kooples, who are designers of pieces so desirable, that couples will want to have a his and hers version.

This Reclaimed Down Scarf is one of the seven pieces from Patagonia‘s “Truth to Material” collection. It is a collection that utilizes reclaimed or reworked fabrics to create new pieces.
The scarves are hand sewn by Alabama Chanin – a small, family-owned company working with artisans in rural Alabama to produce handcrafted garments. The quilters deconstructed returned Patagonia down garments, then restitched the materials into the scarf you see above.
The piece is insulated with goose down and we particularly appreciate the comfortable organic cotton jersey-knit binding. This is a great accessory for both men and women!
- 100% polyester shell fabric with high tear-strength has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish
- Quilted construction stabilizes premium European goose down
- Organic cotton jersey knit binding provides a clean, durable finish
- Generous 75″ length x 9″ width wraps once or twice around neck
- Numbered, limited-edition garment
- Shell: 100% reclaimed polyester ripstop. Insulation: 600- and 800-fill-power 100% reclaimed goose down
- Made in USA.

Blake Mycoskie founded TOMS in 2006 with the business model he called One for One, which essentially gives help to a person in need. In TOMS’ case, with every shoe purchase the company would donate a pair.
In 2011, TOMS eyewear was launched with the same model, every purchase would help restore sight to an individual through sight-saving surgery, prescription glasses, or medical treatment.
We recently got our hands on a pair of their Lobamba Panama Tortoise sunglasses and we are impressed with its overall construction.
The good looking piece is put together with sturdy 5 barrel rivet hinges, while the frame is hand finished with a rich acetate. The sunglasses offer 100% UVA/UVB protection.
The sunglasses are available online at TOMS.
