Before we ever went from being two guys making bow ties to the Two Guys Bow Tie Co., we’ve had a huge passion for everything Made in America. We believe high quality hand-craftsmanship, job creation, and supporting the hard-working men and women in our country are some of our core priorities and beliefs as a business. Innovation, originality, enjoying what you do, and doing what you love all follow closely behind those.
But because it is not always an easy thing to find, we thought we would put together a list of some of our favorite men’s accessories that are all made in the USA as well as under $100. No one ever wants to sacrifice quality for a budget, but sometimes there’s a way to have both. We can prove it.
1. “Madison” Money Clip Wallet – $70
(Colors from left: Cognac, Saddle, Black)
For those who prefer simplicity and having the best of both worlds, Made in Mayhem created this sleek and functional leather money clip has a pocket for your cards as well. The combination of metal, leather, and suede create a truly beautiful staple that will only grow better with wear and time. You can find these on their website in additional colors and styles here.
2. Wool + Deerskin Gloves/Mittens – $39-$65
Whether you prefer fingerless gloves, full finger gloves, or mittens, Upstate Stock has what you’re looking for. Each pair is made mainly using American Raag Wool and Deerskin leather. This combination keeps your hands warm during even the coldest of winter days. Check out the different colors and styles on their website by clicking here.
3. Wooden Bowties + Lapels – $35-$85
Our wooden men’s accessories, handcrafted here in Tulsa, OK, feature a variety of wood types (including a large variety of exotic species) as well as color schemes and designs. However, with the option to design your own custom bow tie or lapel online, it makes the possibilities absolutely endless. Also, for an additional $10, a person can have a custom message or name engraved on the back of the bow tie of their choosing. Take a look at the bow ties here. You can also explore the different style lapel flowers here or design your own here.
4. SmartWool Socks – $16.95-$23.95
Smartwool knows what they’re doing when it comes to making a pair of socks that are not only comfortable and aesthetically-pleasing, but have a technology that really works. Whether a person is looking to run, hike, bike, or spend time in the snow, they have created a unique combination of features to best fit that type of activity through fit, ventilation, cushion, warmth, durability, etc. You can check out their collection of high quality socks for both men and women here.
5. “Classic” Leather belt – $100
This leather belt, featuring the color style “Cognac,” measures a versatile width of 1.25 inches and is constructed out of vegetable-tanned Meridian English Bridle leather. Tanner Goods also features a easy-to-use interactive sizing guide on their website to help you purchase the right belt for the perfect fit. This wardrobe staple warrants a little higher price in the budget as it will most likely be worn on a daily basis and needs to withstand such constant wear with durability and grit.
