Kiel James Patrick

Kiel James Patrick started designing bracelets and belts in prep school after falling in love with tartans, regimental stripes, woven wool and jacquard woven silk ties. His creations were just what he needed to express his individuality in a world of blazers and button downs.

The making of the "Grungy Gentleman" bracelet by KJP.

The finished product is a wool herringbone bracelet backed with KJP's signature plaid.

KJP Ivy League Bracelets

One of the rooms at the KJP headquarters...must be nice to have a bar at work!

As a child one of the best parts about Summer vacation was breaking in your rope bracelet, but come September it had to be cut off for school. The beauty of the KJP rope bracelet is you can simply unbutton it.

Love the inside look at KJP. That picture of his wool herringbone bracelet surrounded by spirits is visionary. Thanks for the tour EAS.
