Men have been complaining since time immemorial about the lack of options when it comes to jazzing up their looks. Limited to simple accessories like shoes, watches, belts, and bags, style-conscious males in Muscat especially bemoan the lack of options. That is beginning to change with the introduction of new specialty men’s stores like Leather and Lather, a highend gents’ store that opened last year in Avenues Mall.
The shop offers luxury grooming products, gift sets, and leather goods, including exclusive Frank Clegg Leatherworks. Founded more than 40 years ago, Frank Clegg leather products are famed for their quality and style, and for the clientelle who wear them, from international executives, to attorneys and judges, celebrities, and even the president of the United States, Barack Obama.
Obama’s selection is a ziptop briefcase in navy, shrunken grain suede and soft grain tumbled leather with handmade belting. The handcrafted design is a subtle, but distinctive head-turner. The bag is available in a variety of colours and can be customised with etched initials for a powerful, sophisticated addition to the wardrobes of the Sultanate’s men of style.
In Oman, Frank Clegg handcrafted leather goods are exclusively available at Leather & Lather, Avenues Mall, Ghubra, +968 9901 4433, leatherandlather.com
