Anyone can suit up, but it's the details that make the difference.
We've got four of 'em. Even the most perfectly tailored ensemble can use some help from a well-placed accessory, but going too brash and bold is a quick path to overkill. We say to break the mold and rotate through these unexpected options that stand out, while keeping the design sharp, classic, and versatile. Wear them with confidence, either individually or mixed and matched, the next time you button up and watch the double takes pile up.
Buttoned up doesn’t have to mean blending in. Our custom designed bow tie is handcrafted in Brooklyn by Everett Clothing, who made them just for us in a limited run. The sturdy cotton and chambray give your getups a modern and rakish edge, and the unique design means you can tie it four different ways: pin dotted burgundy, grey chambray, or either one with a wrap of the other. Don’t think you can pull it off? Think again. It’ll give some old-school class to an office-ready grey suit, but it can work just as well with your weekend and after-hours looks. All you need is a touch of confidence to channel your inner dandy and set yourself apart from the pack.
If you’re a fan of French cuff shirts, you already know the understated sophistication the right pair of cufflinks can add to your suit. If you’re not, you will be after seeing these. Each piece of shining, high-quality brass is individually, carefully, and painfully machined by handin Joshua Tree, CA with incredible attention to detail. The impressive end result is a simple but seriously eye-catching complement to your next dressed-up outfit.
Pocket squares and ties are great, but what about when you need a little something extra? hook+Albert’s take on a lapel flower gives an unexpected edge to your outfit, and is just as sharp as suiting up with a freshly-cut boutonniere (but a whole lot easier to care for). The best part is that the neutral black/white combo won’t clash with your favorite outfits, so you can still pile on whatever accessories you’d like without worrying. Flowers are hand cut and made on the East Coast.
They may be known for their handmade, custom dress shirts, but Blank Label can also make one hell of a pocket square. Their lightweight chambray version is luxuriously soft with an inky two-toned hue that’ll anchor your suit.
