About Knickers & Whiskey

Knickers & Whiskey is designed in Bedford, New York / Made exclusively in the United States.


After years of churning through big-name fashion houses in New York City, co-founders Ann & Andrew Payne went looking for something that would let them continue to use their expertise in design, production, and marketing but that would allow them to have a closer relationship with their customers and the artisans and makers who make their designs.
With that desire, and seeing a gap in the men's accessories market, they created their first brand, General Knot & Co. in 2010.  Based on the idea that men would gravitate to neckwear and small accessories that were not mass produced and made by hand in the US, the brand caught on.  By using rare and vintage fabrics sourced from around the world, these items became more than just a tie or a scarf in the customer's collection, but more of a coveted "collectible".
Fast forward to 2018.  While the concept of Knickers & Whiskey has been brewing for years, the Payne's wanted to get their "sister" brand just right before launching.  By utilizing the same philosophy as General Knot, Knickers & Whiskey has been created for a discerning customer with an eye for beautiful textiles, handmade quality and just the right amount of unique style.
We hope you enjoy these special pieces as much as we enjoy bringing them to you.
