An interesting and memorable experience that came from unboxing just one simple pocket square.
An interview with Blake Canham-Bennett, Adelaide's sole men's hatter.
There is a big wave of nostalgia for retro style digital watches at the moment. The Casio lineup has been faring very well in this wave with two of its retro models the F91-W and A158 reappearing on wrists everywhere thanks to their nostalgic charm and sub-$40 price tag. If you are willing to bump that up to between $65 and $80, you can go one level up and get a feature-packed watch that looks great and has all the bells and whistles: the Casio A500 range.
Dan Henry are a brand that have been on my radar for a little while with their visually pleasing watches that are reputed among fellow horology heads for being built and finished to a high standard. The latter is important when it comes to microbrands these days, as many are making a visually pleasing piece but a high quality build and good movement are not as common. Recently, DH released the 1962; as soon as I saw the panda dial option I knew one would be entering my collection.
Backpacks and other over the shoulder bags are very popular ways of carrying your things, thanks to the practical nature of them. They are a staple of young people's accessories. The familiarity means both are popular choices among men entering the professional workforce. Unfortunately, this means they are often worn over suits and blazers; a sure-fire way to ruin the jacket quickly.
Pairing ties and pocket squares is an art that - when executed well - provides a wonderful playground for self-expression in an otherwise uniform outfit. Making a good combination of patterns and colours seems a very daunting task to many men (I get questions about it regularly!), but it is actually a rather simple undertaking that boils down to one thing: harmony.
