Kiel James Patrick’s red, white and blue nautical rope braid, dubbed the JFK, is perhaps its most recognizable pattern. It’s long graced wrists in bracelet form and even made a modified appearance in the Kiel James Patrick x Brooks Brothers BB#1 Braided Belt. But until now the style hasn’t had a chance to shine as a belt in its pure form. The result is one of the most patriotic pieces you can wear around your waist, the JFK Belt.
Everything about the JFK Belt is focused on America. From the name to the nautical cord and brass hardware sourced from the USA. The belts are assembled in the USA as well. The red, white and blue nautical cord gets braided in Rhode Island and then backed by leather and finished off with leather tabs, brass hardware and a stamped anchor insignia. It might be the day after the Fourth, but there’s still plenty of opportunity to wear this belt this summer.
