Walking down the streets of Florence, the leather capital of Italy, in 2004, Robert Hall and Bill Miles found inspiration to launch a distinct line of men’s luxury belts and cuffs. That day they hit every shop they could find. Many had stunning leather, but surprisingly there wasn't a striking belt in sight. They decided over dinner that night that they would launch Kale Miles luxury accessories for the man who knows where style is going.
The immediate response to Kale Miles was exhilarating. They were represented by one of the most prestigious men’s fashion houses in NYC and carried in accounts like the esteemed Fred Segal in West Hollywood. Then the 2008 recession hit and the dream was put on pause; the business shut down.
Enter us, the two sons of Robert Hall, Kale and Mason. Kale likes to take pride in being the inspiration for half the name, but both of us knew we had to relaunch this together after strong feedback from wearing the cuffs and belts over the past twelve years! We grew up watching our father craft the ultimate accessory line for men. Now it’s our turn. We are starting with cuffs.
Watches have had their day as a symbol of style. Bead and rope bracelets are taking up far too much real estate on a guy’s wrist. But, many of them are unable to express a unique sense of style. A Kale Miles cuff conveys a keen appreciation for design and the willingness to be bold.
Join us as we take this journey to accessorize men with style.
