We strive to impart the quality of quintessence to our products. The dictionary defines quintessence as “the most perfect embodiment of a quality or thing “. Quintessential things that possess that rare quality of quintessence turn certain goods of our lives into objects sublime, exemplary, giving us lasting pleasure. Those things having the quality of quintessence defy improvement because there is nothing to improve. They have it all. Their sensual appeal, their quintessence, makes them our favorites from their moment of discovery. They shine above all others of the same genre. As you will discover, many of our products possess that magical quality of quintessence.
- Our product line is eclectic, traditional and functional ~ and certainly not fashion.
- We are not trendy. We specialize in classics, craftsmanship and quality. We pay attention to the smallest details.
- Our focus is on tropical and nautical casualwear; perfect at sea or onshore or for travel..
- For comfort, we cut our clothes to fit a little more loosely, in lieu of a tight, slim-fit that restricts movement and reduces the natural, cooling that our things offer.
- Wherever possible, we use natural fiber materials, and the best fabric for the job.
- Our clothes feel and look like old friends the first time you put them on. We design and finish to not look new.
- If you don’t want to wear what everyone else has, then you’ll enjoy the uniqueness of what we have to offer.
- We invite you to shop with us online.
For well over 300 years, Great Britain’s Royal Navy issued a daily “tot” of Pusser’s Rum to the crews of their ships – and always a double issue before battle and after victory! First introduced into the Navy in 1655 as a substitute for beer, by 1731, it was in general use. And the name Pusser’s? Nothing more than a corruption of the word “purser”. On board ship, the purser was responsible for ship’s stores – including the rum. Everything that came from the purser was called “Pusser’s” — and still is today. Hence the name Pusser’s Rum!
