When it comes to sartorial elegance and excellence, Great Britain is a very good place to start. This small island, although no longer the rulers of the waves they once were, still know the importance of dressing as though they are on top of the world, and doing so with a knowing wink which blends the past with the present. This beautifully illustrated pocket square features the heraldic symbol of the lion and the unicorn, fighting over the British crown, on a colorful, typically extravagant background of contrasting colors and decadent patterning. Not only is this the crest of the United Kingdom, but it is also a fantastical, fascinating design in itself: the lion, symbol of England, represents pride, strength, rulership. The Unicorn is the emblem of Scotland, and stands for purity, power, inventiveness and imagination. This high quality silk pocket square is ideal for those who look to times gone by for their concept of sophistication, and who pair an old-world sense of style with a decidedly post-modern, avant-garde approach to high street fashion.
The mauve background of this silk pocket square – along with the sand beige hand-rolled hem and brown arabesque border – all allow the main design of the lion and the unicorn on the British crest to leap from the silk, and catch the eye of all who come across it. This is a high quality pocket square which uses classical heraldic imagery to blend the past with the present, and to create an effect which plays with the concept of vintage fashion. The overall result feels stylish, avant-garde and impactive, and perfect for the elegant, sophisticated modern individual. Wear this pocket handkerchief with a black suit, a white shirt, and a deep mauve colored necktie.
