Dandy Grab Bag

per month
I print my own fabrics, and do fabric experiments. I create bags, pillows and patches. I also do small leather accessories.  Once a month you get something from my grab bag. If you don't want it, you can regift it! Dandy items make wonderful gifts.

    Cravat of the Month Club

    per month

    This entitles patrons to a monthly subscription of cravats and ascots. Each month is a new surprising cravat or ascot based on what I am creating that month with my fabrics. I also save this option for specialty fabrics I get when I travel, so I will tell you where I got my fabrics from. I don't mail order fabrics. I buy local or on the road, as much as possible from independent retailers.

      Virtual Studio Visit

      reward item
      per month
      You can have a virtual studio visit, I will show you what I am working on and you can select one of my items (under $50.00). In addition, I am happy to answer any technical questions you may have about my craft. I am also currently doing leather repairs and working in leather accessories.

        About El Handy Dandy

        My name is sam smiley, I am El Handy Dandy, El Jefe, the Boss and the Proprietor of my Establishment. I make Cravats, Ascots, and I modify Mens’ Clothing into Wearable Art.

        I aspire to provide elegant, comfortable semi formal clothing for Modern Gentlemen of All Genders. I work with fine fabrics, silks, linens and velvets. I travel and procure fabrics from Mexico City, Paris, New York and other locations. My Establishment is based in the city of Providence, Rhode Island, one of the birthplaces of industrialization in the United States and a very good supplier of fabrics and inspiration for design and fashion.
