Whether meeting a friend for cocoa, going ice-skating in Pershing Square, or gift giving, you should always share your love of the season by dressing with festive flair! 

Speaking of getting together with friends and loved ones, here is our silk pocket square Honor together with other awesome pieces. Our pocket square, Honor, was inspired by a collection 19th century medals of honor. Its unique stripes of whites, gold, pinks, reds, and deep purple are perfect anytime of the year but at Christmas time it looks like minty ribbon candy or the stripes of a pixie's stocking. Whatever it reminds you of, it is simply chic.

I've moved our studio and operations to downtown Los Angeles! A part of town that has experienced a great deal of change in the past few years and is still changing. This work-in-progress, ever-morphing environment is exciting, inspiring and not unfamiliar.

It feels like there is so much change in the air. The world, politics, industry, work, friends, family...everything. But such is life; filled with changes.

And with all of those changes life has for us, I believe it is important to always keep your spirits high and surround yourself with people and things that inspire you. A new pair of shoes, a painting, a colorful scarf ...sometimes the simplest thing can give you the spark you need to "be" and/or create the positive changes you desire in life.

If a little color in your life will do the trick, you're in the right place. I like a touch of color and print too!

So, as I set up the new studio and surround myself with inspirations, I appreciate all that is good now, I can already see the many good things to come that I'm excited to share ...and even more beautiful changes.

The Geode pocket square hits the right note in this smooth ensemble. Geode's abstractly graphic modern style features classical black and greys with notes of dark green, rich teals and splashes of vibrant yellow. Geode knows how to jazz up an ensemble.

We think you should wear exciting color 365 days of the year. But for Spring and Summer, there is just no excuse not to! A touch of color in your pocket is a perfect way to add a little heat to any ensemble ...even for the most conservative gentleman.

Our pocket square, Raceme, is a unique floral in whites, bright yellows, gold, jade green, lavender, and a richly vibrant purple. Above is just one idea of how you can mix Raceme with a wide variety of pieces to achieve perfect ensemble chemistry.

Spring has sprung today! If you love the feeling of spring as we do, you can always keep a little spring in pocket anytime of the year. Sporting our Clusius pocket square not only adds spring to your pocket, it carries a bit of history too. 

The Clusius pocket square is named after Charles de L’Écluse (19 Feb 1526 – 4 Apr 1609), also known as Carolus Clusius, Flemish doctor and botanist of French decent, who cultivated the dutch tulip.

Clusius worked throughout Europe as a collector of botanical information and material and also introduced various new plants from outside Europe. In 1593 he became the Chair of Botany at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands. He established one of the earliest botanical gardens, where he introduced and grew a wide variety of flowering bulbs, including the tulip. He planted the first tulip bulbs in 1593, and hence 1594 is considered the official date of the first tulip flowering in the Netherlands.

 

 

Throughout history, tulips have been a symbol of eternal life and abundance. In modern times, the yellow tulip has come to represent light and cheerful thoughts.

So, who needs life, abundance, light and cheer?
