The Risk/Reward Sale Starts Now

It’s that time again. Our twice-yearly Risk/Reward Sale launches today. For those new to Wingtip, this is not your typical sale. Escalating markdowns are common, but with most stores, you don’t have any notice when the sale might increase from 30% off to 40% off, or from 50% to final markdowns. With our Risk/Reward sale, it couldn’t be more transparent.

    Kentucky Derby Party Recap

    The Club held it’s fifth annual Kentucky Derby party on Saturday. To say that members and guests took their responsibility to dress up for the party seriously would be an understatement. So much seersucker, linen, madras, and as one member put it: “hats for days.” The menu featured $5 mint juleps paired with country ham… Read more »

    Wingtip’s first exclusive ashtray design

    If you’re a cigar lover like me, you’ll probably never forget where you were, or what you were doing, when you first laid eyes on my inaugural ashtray design. Simple. Purposeful. Built-in “social” integration. How could no one have already thought of it? I don’t know. A crystal ashtray for a single cigar that features an accurate,… Read more »

    This Thursday: The Return Of Survivalon

    We are thrilled to host Bert Pulitzer for a Survivalon trunkshow this Thursday, April 23rd. Pulitzer is an outerwear innovator, the man who taught Ralph Lauren about the neckwear business, and the guy that first made a name for Velcro. He relaunched Survivalon in 2012, and we’re happy to see it’s return. These waterproof jackets are stylish, in traditionally muted shades as well as brash and compromising colors. They are highly functional, long-lasting, and American-made. And their client roster has included titans among men, like John Wayne.

    April Whisky Bundle: A Trio From Springbank Distillery

    It’s time for another whisky bundle to add to your growing collection of amazing gold liquid at your home bar. This month Kyle and I put together a fun little ditty from the region of Campbeltown. Tucked away in the South West Corner of Scotland, Campbeltown used to be home to as many as 34 distilleries. Now there are only two left, and they produce some very exciting whiskies indeed. The whiskies in this month’s bundle all come from one distillery; two are homages to closed distilleries, and the other is one of our all-time favorite daily drams. These three bottles would normally retail together for $226.97, but purchased as a bundle, we’re offering them for just $190. Without further ado, our April Whisky Bundle of Joy, featuring Springbank Distillery.

    EyeBobs Readers At City Lights Bookstore [PHOTOS]

    The beat generation was raised at a bookstore, just a stone’s throw from Wingtip, on a jagged block of Columbus Avenue, nestled between San Francisco’s North Beach and Chinatown districts. City Lights Bookstore was opened in 1953, the brainchild of Peter D. Martin, but it was co-founder Lawrence Ferlinghetti who turned it into a place where poets could read and publish works that weren’t necessarily “fit to print,” in the established sense.

    Foster & Son Visits Wingtip This Week

    Foster & Son’s Jermyn Street workshop in London stands as a testament to classic, understated craftsmanship. As they note on their brochure, “The tools of our craft are very simple. An awl, flax thread, beautifully naturally tanned leather, a hammer, pliers, sharp knives, beeswax, punches, and marking tools.”
