12 Puff out your chest

Esquire (UK) - - Style -

Pocket squares have been ei­ther sin­fully dull or painfully “wacky” for too long (Gor­don in ac­counts loves a wacky pocket square.)

But there is a third way. Turn­bull & Asser, the ven­er­a­ble men’s shirt­maker, has cre­ated a new col­lec­tion of six squares made in con­junc­tion with up-and­com­ing artists who have been tasked with demon­strat­ing their in­di­vid­ual style. Else­where, new pocket square brand Can­vas has com­mis­sioned six cult In­sta­gram il­lus­tra­tors to de­liver a de­sign based on a “se­duc­tion” theme. They are limited to 100 pieces each, so you can get a piece of art — such as Zeus and Leda by Ti­ago Ma­jue­los, seen above — that dou­bles as pep for your pocket. can­vaspock­et­squares.com
