City Squares

For those who want to take the term “international style” a bit literally, Australia-based designer Christian Kimber has been slowly building a set of city-themed pocket squares that I think are both highly unique and appealing. The squares all feature original art by the designer, and are inspired by the different cities he’s been to. The London square, for example, features the Gherkin skyscraper that he used to pass by every day, while the Hong Kong square is inspired by the skyline he saw in Kowloon (where my shirtmaker Ascot Chang is based, incidentally). I’ve been admiring the set for a while, but had to wait until the Kimber released his square for Vietnam – where my family is originally from – before I bought my first one.

The designs are great, and have a nice international flavor that I think most men can appreciate, but it’s the abstracted shapes that make them a bit more unique than my usual favorites from Drake’s, Rubinacci, and Holland & Holland. In the pocket, they take on a modern look, perhaps more in the line of Tom Ford than any of the aforementioned companies. Twist a little here or there, and you can show off different colors as you wish. The size, thankfully, is also big enough to not slip down the pocket (something that’s increasingly hard to find nowadays, unfortunately). Quality and make here are similar to Drake’s, and I believe both lines are produced at the same factory.

A big thank you to Derek Guy. A serious honour as a long time reader!

Introducing Hanoi to the Christian Kimber pocket square collection!

This abstract design was inspired by the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hotel in Hanoi, with its beautiful green french windows. Sitting out the front having an afternoon tea I casually sketched the windows and took in the crazy beauty of the city.

Made from a 30% silk, 70% wool blend, each square has hand-rolled edges. Made in Cheshire, England.

Only a few of these Lemongrass limited edition chaps left…
