Summer Pocket Squares by Prepidemic

This post was written by Lindy Dandy.

What a fortuitous discovery after yesterday’s discussion of summer suiting!

The gents over at Prepidemic have extended their blog brand to their “house label,” Bocca al Lupo, and put out some nice pocket squares appropriate for Spring and Summer. (as pointed out here and here).

They’ve got all their bases covered: seersucker, madras and denim.  All made from American and Italian fabrics, then lovingly crafted in New York.  The best part? They’re $15!  That’s a steal compared to other stores that I’ve seen sell pocket squares for 3 and 4 times as much.  (Some of those were silk, but still, that’s just unaffordable).

According to Prepidemic, “The brand was formed as a reaction to the outrageous markups we saw in stores, especially on the simplest of accessories. So we decided to go out and hunt for fabric and then track down the best manufacturer to produce a collection that we would sell at a reasonable price.”

If I had to pick one, I’d definitely go for the green seersucker square, but I’d love to have any of these peeking out of a blazer or sportcoat this (and every future) summer.

Bravo, gents!

By the way, if you haven’t seen the blog, it’s a good read with (mostly) good recommendations, interviews, and guides.
