The inspiration for Milwaukee-based HollenWolff goes back to 1924, when menswear company Sykes and Strandberg filed a patent for "bearing-lock cufflinks." Noted gentleman Stanley Hollenbeck might have worn a pair; so might have Paul Wolff, a tool and die manufacturer. But the roaring '20s and the cufflinks Wolff burned out, and it wasn't until a few years ago that Hollenbeck's and Wolff's grandsons, James Lohmiller (custom clothing salesman) and Kyle Stoehr (ball bearing manufacturer) teamed up. They were at a party, and Stoehr was recounting how he practically broke a sweat locking his cufflinks into place. Lohmiller had just spent the afternoon researching vintage "bearing-lock cufflinks," and Stoehr was just the guy to recreate the technology. The two channelled their grandfathers, snapped their names and ideas together, and HollenWolff was the functional result.

No results.
