A Gentleman's Auction

Make a bid and be a better man for it ...

As any discerning gentleman will tell you, one of the best places to score rare vintage finds in quality conditions is at auction. And this one is tailor made for such men. Now in its third iteration, the "Gentleman's Accessories" auction by Paddle8 is a collection of hard-to-find treasures personally curated by legendary antiques hunter Alan Bedwell. If you're not familiar with him, you know his work—he's the guy behind all the amazing antiques and vintage pieces you see in Ralph Lauren's stores and other high end shops. The cache of dapper goods includes everything from sterling silver barware and vintage timepieces to rare leather goods and funirture.To help you along, we picked a few favorites from this wondrous selection of goods that you can bid on until October 27.
