Navy pocket square with a large floral pattern in sky blue, burgundy and white. A very versatile square with just the right balance of subdued and bright colors. Works great with a grey fresco or worsted suit, burgundy printed silk tie, light blue/white striped shirt, brown braces and suede monks.
We’re happy to introduce this new soft and extremely lightweight fabric, which is perfect for pocket squares. The texture is dry with an open weave and even though there’s no silk in this fabric composition, the surface is quite silky and delicate. These pocket squares are a great summery alternative to the popular Shibumi wool/silk squares in our fall/winter collection.
In the quiet hills of the British countryside lies the traditional heart of English silk printing: Macclesfield. Once home to numerous manufactories that produced the inimitable screen-printed silk connoisseurs love so dearly, today there are only two left that produce what internationally became known as “British Neats”. But the quality that comes out of these traditional places is still unparalleled: nothing beats the depth and character of hand-printed silk. The time-consuming printing process requires a lot of experience to get right, as the color reacts after printing with oxygen and forms the final shade: a delicate process, requiring a delicate hand. The result is a lush, rich, almost 3D-like effect we just love.
