New from M&U

Growing onto its already popular line of leather goods, M&U embarks into a new category of accessories comprised of metals and wood. The hard accessories series launches this season with minimally designed brass key rings, money clips and even a bracelet. Now where does one put all these cool objects when they get home from the bar? A Valet Tray is the answer and when they are nicely crafted as these you are going to ask yourself what have I been doing without one all these years. Walnut, Cherry and other wood species make up the sustainably harvested materials for these handsome catch alls and make great gifts for a friend or even house warmings.


A minimal design yet functional design is always hard to create but M&U has done so with the new Brass key ring. Made in the USA this simple yet rugged design will work for all you keys. ($32)M_U_OXIDIZEDKEYKeyring is also available in oxidized brass mix ($32)


Square Valet is a place to keep all you keys and wallets an even your phone. The cut out groove on back allows your phone charging plug to lay neatly while you charge your device. Made in the USA of  maple and oak. ($88)M_U_SMALL_VALETThe Round valet is of a smaller scale and is made up of a combination of different woods creating a cool striped look.  ($55)


The Money clip ($38), also made of solid brass has great design lines. If you like to keep you cash close and not fuss with a wallet this money clip is your answer. (Image above shows the back side of money clip while image below shows the top side.)

M_U_OXIDIZED_MONEYCLIPMoney clip is also available in oxidized brass. ($38)


Another added design to the M&U line is the Twisted brass bracelet ($75). A simple cuff that can be adjusted to the wrist. The twisted brass design is understated detail and looks nice layered with other pieces. M_U_OXIDIZED_BRACELETLike the rest of the hardware series the Twisted Bracelet comes in an oxidized Brass version. ($75)
