Winter Accessories Part 1: Berg & Berg Pocket Squares
I got a nice little parcel from Berg & Berg of Norway this Tuesday. The parcel held three types of goods: ties, pocket squares and socks. I decided to share the items into three parts, admittedly to have more things to post, but also because I love this kind of detail shots taken of beautiful things.
First part: some kickass fall/winter pocket squares.
The first square is probably my new favorite pocket square. A natural white with a burgundy pattern wool flannel square, so soft to touch and just perfect for the season. The colors are also quite a good match for many combinations, making it a good go-to square when you have some similar tones on you. Also, the delicious flannel as a material works with formal and casual items alike.
The other square is a natural white with navy and blue curls. The material is a wool twill, and it is fills out a hole that’s been in my wardrobe for quite some time - a non-silk blue pocket square. As you probably have noticed, I like wearing blue, and some more variation to the pocket squares I can use in those combinations is more than welcome.
More of these in tasty close-ups later this weekend.
Both pocket squares are handrolled and the quality is normal Berg & Berg - very good. After getting these two bad boys I’m really lusting to buy all the flannel squares and maybe a few others as well. Now that they offer shipping from within the European Union and you can avoid the customs problems, these 26 EUR squares offer a pretty fantastic value.
Part two will include the socks, leaving the ties last for part three. Also an outfit post with some, you guessed it, blue.
