Linen/cotton blue gingham shirt $145
Linen/cotton is the ideal fabric for warm weather. It is actually cooler than pure linen because it is not as dense and stiff. It is also suitable for year-round wear as you can just wear an undershirt or add more layers for warmth. This blend also lacks the slubs and wrinkle-prone nature of linen and is appropriate with a suit.
The fabric is milled in Italy by SIC Tess, who specializes in linen. Their linen/cotton is the best in the world. The voile weave is an open weave that breathes well without being transparent.

GQ reviews our minimal sneakers

Logo-less simple kicks look great with just about anything. In fact, Marc Jacobs even wore a pair with a suit when he said “Sayonara!” to Louis Vuitton. The only thing about minimal sneakers is that they usually don’t come with a minimal price tag. That’s why we think these low-tops from Kent Wang are really cool. Available in three colors, they’re inspired by subtle sneakers of the 1960s and ’70s. And they’re only $95 a pop. Available in whole sizes only, they recommend sizing up if you’re between sizes. Hurry and buy these before we scoop up every pair.

Lizard watch strap $75

The small size of the Teju lizard scales is ideal for a dress watch like our Art Deco watch or to add a bit of textural interest to our Bauhaus watch.

The strap is not padded and does not have stitching, resulting in a more minimal look.

The Teju lizard is an abundant species and sustainably farmed.

Bauhaus watch (version 2) $350. Slightly smaller at 39 mm instead of the previous 42 mm.

Inspired by the Bauhaus movement of the 1930s that first ushered in the era of modern architecture, this watch is the epitome of minimal design: no text, no logos, no numerals, no luminous paint. 

Completely mechanical, does not take a battery. The Sea-Gull ST17 automatic movement winds itself with the movement of your wrist and has a power reserve of 40 hours.

The 39 mm wide, 10 mm thick case is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. A large caseback window displays the guilloché engraved movement.

Jacobean Laton pocket square $45

Jacobean embroidery flourished during the reign of King James I (Jacobus being the Latin form of James) from 1567–1625. The style emphasized natural forms such as exotic and familiar plants and animals.

This design is based on Margaret Laton’s embroidered jacket, the only example of a Jacobean garment which has survived along with its portrait. The jacket is exquisitely decorated with elements of a verdant garden, including flowers, vines, birds, and even snails.

Unicorn millefleur pocket square $45

millefleur (French “thousand flowers”) is a motif of many small flowers and plants, often used as a background in the art of the Middle Ages. This depiction is from The Unicorn in Captivity, the last piece of the Unicorn Tapestries, also known as the The Hunt of the Unicorn. The plants in the series are rendered with extraordinary accuracy—botanists have been able to identify 85 of the 101 plants depicted.

The Unicorn in Captivity is rife with symbols of fertility and marriage; many of the plants depicted here, such as wild orchid, bistort, and thistle, were used as fertility aids in the Middle Ages. The ‘AE’ cipher in the lower right corner refers to the original owners of the tapestries, who remain unknown, but leading theories suggest that the ‘A’ may have referred to Anne of Brittany.

Qianlong carpet pocket square $45

The Qianlong Emperor was the sixth emperor of the Qing Dynasty of China, ruling from 1735 to 1796. The carpet shown in his official portrait differs from the one in all the other Qing Dynasty emperors’ portraits, and is rather more colorful and flamboyant.

This design can be custom woven as a wool carpet. Contact us for more details.
