Men’s Pocket Squares - Pleat and Complete the Gentleman’s Ensemble
Men’s pocket squares come from a long tradition of accoutrements—as an essential accessory of English royalty, and a steadfast companion of Gary Cooper and Humphrey Bogart during the dawn of the talkies. Distinguished from the humble handkerchief by its finer fabric and smaller size, the pocket square adorns the contemporary debonair gentleman with a flourish of civility, enterprise, and panache. Toting it can bring a shirt or a suit to life, accentuating one’s attire with a touch of distinction. Anita Dongre’s collection of ornate pocket squares are designed to serve a man of all seasons. Each pocket square we craft is made of the finest satin or cotton silk. With tones of cinnamon, sage, sea foam, and pepper, our measured palette has been chosen to reflect subtlety and poise. Drawing on the florid arts and crafts of the royal state of Rajasthan, an Anita Dongre pocket square recreates the state’s courtly grandeur and vibrant heritage in the breast pocket of your shirt, suit, or sherwani. Introduce a pocket square to your outfit and wear your urbanity – to a decadent bachelor party, a traditional family reunion, or a critical client meeting – with unabashed flair.
Established in 1995, Anita Dongre is the regular choice of haute couture for business tycoons, celebrities, royal families, and political leaders today. Exploring the rich artisanal culture of Rajasthan, our label has been fusing timeless provincial craftsmanship with the latest trends in high fashion. This fusion is reflected in our bespoke bridal-wear, couture, menswear, and handcrafted gold jadau jewellery. With a global presence facilitated by twelve stores around the world, we have been introducing recherché design concepts from India to diverse audiences everywhere.
From the Fashion Sage’s Mouth
Originally a European import, the pocket square has lent itself well to a host of ethnic clothes in the Indian sub-continent. Far from the staid suit pocket square, our variants add a hint of adventure to an achkan or bandhgala. There are no rules for carrying a pocket square — although we recommend that you don a shade sufficiently discernible from the primary colour of your top-wear. Our Blush Block Printed Pocket Square, for instance, will augment the stateliness of a marble white sherwani. For another infinitely dapper look, our Digital Print Pocket Square may be niftily tucked inside the pocket of a jet black Nehru jacket. If you are going to carry a pocket square while wearing a tie, it is sensible to invest in compatible colours.
There are many ways to fold your pocket square; you may choose the presidential fold for business and the Cagney or the scallop fold for leisure. Whatever your choice of fold, crease your pocket square firmly and make sure to inspect its structural integrity from time to time.
