About this time last year, it dawned on us. When it comes to dressing up, why should girls have all the fun? You get invited to a wedding. Your date / wife stops by Nordstrom's and picks a new dress (always a new dress.) Then comes the shoes. Then the purse. The jewelry. Everything matches. She looks flawless.
You? You make sure your one suit is dry cleaned, find an ironed shirt, and hope that your tie doesn't have stains on it from the last time you put it on. It probably does, so maybe no one will notice.
We thought to ourselves, let's put a stop to this madness. Let's give men - even outdoorsy men - an option to add a bit of personality. Let's make cufflinks that people actually want to wear. Let's make something that says "Hey, I matter too!"
This summer, we're making a statement. We're putting on that one suit, one shirt and stained tie, but we're throwing some seriously stylish cufflinks in the mix. Maybe you fancy the blue crab cufflinks. Maybe you like the gator cufflinks. Maybe you'll be into the soon-to-be-announced skull and crossbones.
Whatever you fancy, you deserve better. You deserve to be the best dressed guest. Shop now at www.Alligrove.com/shop, then tag @thealligrove #bestdressedguest for a chance to be featured on Instagram. We're talking to you, man.
Backyard crab boils. Sunsets on the beach. Lazy weekends on the river. Today we launch our coastal-inspired Blue Crab Cufflinks, in honor of all things summer. Grab an iced-tea and shop the collection. Southern rooted. Florida made. 3D printed.
FLAMINGO MAGAZINE FEATURES "ALLIGROVE" AS ICONIC FLORIDA BRAND
Made in FLA: Alligrove Gator Studs
Welcome to the Alligrove. Where nature is preserved and design is celebrated.
Fascinated with 3D printing, architect and designer Cuyler began experimenting with Shapeways in 2015, a marketplace for artisans to design, upload and sell 3D printed designs. On a snowy day in Brooklyn, Cuyler discovered a series of nature-inspired 3D scans and conceived the idea to print them in brass, silver and gold. Katy, a PR and marketing professional, recognized its potential and spent a sleepless night envisioning how to expand the line of 3D printed accessories and home goods.
Together they lined hundreds of post-it notes on their dining room table with names for the collection. The "Alligrove" kept resurfacing, representing so much more than the inaugural alligator skull cufflinks. Both University of Florida graduates, they spent most of their life on the water, Cuyler fishing the mangroves on the Gulf Coast; Katy from the quiet Panhandle of Florida. It's why they made the decision to finally bid farewell to New York City and return home to a simpler life and more time outdoors.
They now reside in Tampa, Florida, where Cuyler is a designer with Alfonso Architects and Katy works remotely from her PR agency in New York. When they aren't working on their day jobs (or designing for Alligrove), you can find them on their vintage Angler, the "By U Too."
