The pocket square is more in demand than ever; a resurgence in vintage tailoring and an increased focus on men’s fashion have made the pocket square the must-have accessory for men. Not only do these beautiful squares of fabric allow you to individualise your look, they act as a focal point for your outfit, encouraging you to get playful with colour and texture. This summer is the perfect time to invest in a beautiful pocket square or two and a grey suit is an ideal backdrop for this look. Grey offers a softer, warmer finish than black or navy and sits in stunning contrast to a bold, artistic pocket square.
We have chosen our three favourite pocket squares for a grey suit, below. Dip in and find your ideal match.
Our ‘The Right Direction’ Italian Silk Pocket Square is a gorgeous piece of graphic design. The repeated monochrome design features a compass at its centre and a bold black border complete with hand finished edges. Direction related icons sit at three of its corners. Style it with a soft grey suit, crisp white shirt and bold black tie for a perfectly poised look. Use a relaxed fold for your pocket square to stop it looking too ‘overdone’ and give a sartorial edge to your outfit.
Sometimes more is more and our ‘Vocal Beauties’ Italian Silk Pocket Square is the perfect choice for the bold dresser. Celebrating sound in a colourful and quirky design it will provide a talking point for your look. A mandolin player and Kingfisher with gramophone horn add to the eclectic display. Choose a jovial grey check jacket and relaxed open neck shirt for a casual business look. Make sure you artfully arrange your pocket square to show off the rainbow colours of this joyous design.
Nautically inspired fashion is truly timeless and this Navy and White Linen Pocket Square is the perfect addition to your weekend wardrobe. Linen gives this square a rustic feel which makes it a great fit for a blazer or relaxed jacket. Wear with chinos, a comfort fit shirt and a summer scarf for an easy look which will work all summer long. Fold with a double point to show off the contrasting white border.
