You’ve heard me go on and on about the great work Res Ipsa is doing. I first came to know them this Spring, and have been a fan ever since. I have a couple pairs of the kilim loafers, and wear them all the time.
Josh and Odini are simply killing it. I’ve seen their loafers popping up all over the place…whether it’s H. Stockton in Atlanta or Grady Ervin in Charleston, they are all having trouble keeping them in stock. Besides being at the helm of their bourgeoning business, they are two of the greatest guys I know. Simply outstanding individuals who really take pleasure in doing what they do.
Now, as the seasons change, so is Res Ipsa. Well, ‘change’ might be a drastic word, but let’s just say they are winterizing. They are releasing a line of Harris Tweed tartan goods that will make your head spin. Weekender bags, tote bags, loafers, and chukka boots in the fine, authentic Harris Tweed that is the envy of all other wools. I had a chance to preview the line last week, and am happy to show you good folks.
Here we go:
The weekender bag, the dopp kit, Harris Tweed loafers and chukka boots. Don’t be afraid of these…allow it to happen. Pair with a good pair of jeans and a sweater, and you are good to go. Keep it to a minimum in terms of other patterns or plaids; let the loafers and boots do the talking.
The Red and Black tartan. Seriously.
Another weekender bag, a tote bag, and their brand new camo suit cover. The suit cover is a really nice addition to the lineup – it’s thick enough to protect the contents, but light enough to be easy. It’s big enough for a suit, a jacket, and a pair of pants.

Their full line will be uploaded to their website very soon…you know I’ll let you know.
