I really appreciate the extra effort some men do in complementing their outfit with a pocket square. In my opinion, they do not necessarily have to wear a tie, especially when it is a rather casual yet still rather formal occasion. However, a pocket squares will always enhance the overall look. You can find nice standard pocket square at SUITSUPPLY. They’re offering cotton, linen, wool, wool silk, silk and wool cashmere pocket squares. If your budget allows a bit of a splurge, then have a closer look at their ready-made suits. Genuinely good quality at a great price! Here, you’ll get to their webpage*:
If you’re rather interested in something not so mainstream but very particular, then you should opt for pocket squares by RAMPLEY & Co. Their pocket squares are made in England from the finest fabrics (e.g. silk, tweed and linen) and their designs are absolutely unique! For the latter they are collaborating with some of the world’s most famous museums such as the National Gallery and the British Museum. You should definitely have a look at their products. Simply exquisite! Go to Rampley & Co.
A gentleman can never have too many ties in his wardrobe, so this is always a safe bet for a Christmas present idea. A great brand on the market for classic menswear is LIMERIUS from Switzerland. Apart from their outstanding ties, you will also find amazing high-quality cardigans, turtle necks and crew necks as well as other quintessential men’s accessories. Check them out! Go to Limerius.
On my last visit to Paris in the beginning of November, I followed a friend’s recommendation and visited HOWARD’S PARIS. They offer wonderful shirts, ties and other men’s accessories. I can totally recommend their Grenadine ties. I bought two of them in superb colors and I’m absolutely satisfied. Go to Howard’s Paris.
Leather watch straps
You do not necessarily need to buy a new watch. You can simply buy a new leather watch strap to perk up the look of your favorite timepiece. With a little bit of guidance from our friend YouTube, it’s fairly easy to change it on your own. Everything you need for this can be found in the GENTLE ZEUS web shop. Their watch straps are handmade from the finest leather and various colors and stitching patterns are available. On their webpage you can also find further leather accessories such as cardholders and pen cases. I especially like their handcrafted Macbook (Pro) leather sleeve with an envelope. Excellent! Go to Gentle Zeus.
There are plenty of great books out there about the sartorial world. Books about the history of shoemaking, tailoring and brands producing wonderful high-quality products. I have read several books of the sort this year and would like to present my favorite two.
The first one thoroughly details the master tailors of British bespoke, with special focus on Savile Row. This is THE street in London when it comes to high-end tailoring. You should definitely not miss it on your next trip to London. The second book is about various brands producing some of the finest menswear products in the world such as scarfs, shoes and panama hats. Actually, I have learned from this book, that the real panama hats are not being woven in Panama but in Ecuador! You can find the finest Panamas if you look for the weavers in and around Montecristi, a town on the Pacific coast of Ecuador. Here are the links to the books**:
I hope I’ve managed to set your imagination rolling and you will find the perfect present for yourself or your loved one. Enjoy surfing through the online sartorial world and may the gifts you choose bring joy to you and your loved ones. Merry Christmas folks! 😊
