OF1I am a man and I love men’s accessories, like handkerchiefs, belts, watches, cufflinks and all those other things that are usually relegated to the men’s “gift” table at your local department store.

But alas there are others out there that honor these classic goods for men, like the fine folks at Owen & Fred, who offer a wonderful selection of men’s accessories made in the USA. Owen & Fred is the perfect place to shop for a gift for the man in your life… like me!

About Owen & Fred: “It shouldn’t be hard to find durable, high-quality men’s goods made in the United States. We aim to make that statement true by working with designers and manufactures to create our own line of men’s goods made great, made in America. A simple wallet inspired us. One that moved beyond an ordinary good. A wallet that made us realize men deserve more than cheaply made, high-marked, department store products made in countries we’ve never traveled to. We wanted to provide superior men’s goods made in the United States. This proved harder than it sounds. We discovered if we wanted high-quality, long lasting, and inspiring goods that fit our standards, we would have to make them ourselves. So that’s what we decided to do. Men’s Goods Made Great- everything a man needs to feel complete in his day. Goods that motivate men to reach their highest potential as well as put a smile on their face.”

A couple of Owen & Fred’s products that caught my eye…

I love the Owen & Fred Bottoms Up shot glass (above, right):

“Made in Brooklyn exclusively for Owen & Fred, meet our Bottoms Up shot glasses. This stainless steel shot glass is stamped by hand in Brooklyn, degreased and packaged up for you and consumption of copious amounts of tequila.”

OF2Meanwhile, Owen & Fred offers a great line of neat cufflinks like the New York City Subway token cufflinks made with vintage subway tokens:

“Hand-crafted using real NYC subway tokens from the 50s and 60s, these cufflinks will turn heads and put you in a New York state of mind. While subway tokens are long gone (having disappeared from NYC subways in the mid-80s), you have to admit these will turn an otherwise boring French cuff dress shirt into something quite classy. These beautiful NYC subway cufflinks are secured to gold plated cufflink posts.”

OF3Last but not least I want one of Owen & Fred’s signature bags like the Army Green “Work Hard, Play Hard” Duffel:

“Introducing our Army Green “Work Hard, Play Hard” Duffel, by Owen & Fred. We designed this duffel to outlast the competition with a price tag you’ll love. Made from #8 18 oz Duck Canvas, 1000 Denier Nylon on the exterior and 420 Denier Nylon interior, you have durable, water repellent quality that looks as good as it protects. Approximately 9.75 inches high and 19.5 inches wide with a 9.75 inch interior diameter it’s the perfect size for a weekend away or to carry your gear to the gym. The interior provides one large zipper pocket for bigger personal items and two small non-zipper pockets to fit your phone or wallet. The bags zips open and closed with ease, and feature nickel hardware, leather grip and accents, and an attachable shoulder strap. Best of all, it comes with a message on the inside to motivate you throughout the day.”
