Kiel James Patrick is a men’s accessories brand from New England in the US. Mr Patrick, who lent his name to the brand created it out of a passion for age-old quality, style and carefully constructed American made goods – which sadly, are not so easily found now.

Mr Patrick’s hobby; making himself bracelets and belts from high quality materials, soon turned into a business. Today, the KJP factory and design studio is located in Rhode Island and true to the brands history, all KJP products are 100% USA made – and sold worldwide.

I recently purchased a KJP Peter Wence Lanyard Hitch (bracelet) from UK based KJP stockist Opumo.com – a men’s accessories site, with a superbly edited selection and notable customer service.

The KJP Lanyard Hitch collection is hand-crafted in Rhode Island from locally twisted nautical cord, solid brass hardware surrounds and is available in various weathered New England colours. A well-built and stylish accessory/ gift for any gent.
