Put This On: Winter 2014
We’re so happy to share a small collection of winter pocket squares. Among them are some of the most remarkable we’ve ever made.
- We have a small group of squares made from exceptionally lightweight Edwardian silk, dating from the very end of the 19th century. I found a few small scraps of this silk at a vintage fabric show, and it absolutely took my breath away. There are only a few of these available, though, so don’t count on them sticking around. (Edit: just one left.)
- We’re offering a small group of silk squares made from mid-century silk military escape maps. These maps were for soldiers trapped in enemy territory, made of silk because it could be folded tightly and was resistant to water. Again, we have only a very limited supply. (Edit: sold out in 15 minutes. Sorry.)
- We’re also offering some squares made from 1950s western handkerchiefs, beautiful William Morris-designed floral motifs, and birder’s guides. We even have this month’s Gentlemen’s Association square, in a superfine cotton-wool blend, in three colorways.
