These unique braces are for the daring at heart who spend their lives searching for the grand adventures that define character and make great men of us all.
"The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides."
- Captain Nemo (20,000 Leagues Under the Sea)
The refined graphic contrast of the limited edition “Reel Time” brace brings to mind the genius clarity of the classic movie director’s vision. The iconic numbers that count down the beginning of a movie are a sure cue that we are about to be entertained. These graphic Trafalgar Limited Edition braces are both elegant and entertaining. Wear them to the Oscar’s or to the next screening of your home movies and let the conversation begin about favorite films, directors and stars.

Trafalgar Limited Edition Braces are hand woven on 120 year old looms. The intricate designs are produced using only the finest denier silk yarns. Because the yarns are so very delicate, they will break if one tries to weave them on today’s looms made for speed. Skilled craftsman are able to produce 5 yards of narrow silk fabric a day at most. With only six colors of yarn to work from the designs are intricate and beautiful conversation pieces incorporating scenes from nature to nostalgia and history to pure fantasy.
Many of the Limited Edition Braces have established themselves as collectible and wearable works of art.
