Ever get the feeling you should have been born in a different time? different country? different city? I think we think this way because we feel we have a connection with a certain city. For some, it’s Paris, others it’s London and even sometimes New York, but for me it’s Liverpool. While it’s a city that I mainly visit for football matches, I can’t help but fall for the city’s charm, the beautiful buildings, the friendly and welcoming nature of the locals each time I visit. When I got the chance to collaborate with Michael Frackowiak from mensfinest.co.uk to style the Liverpool Best pocket square I couldn’t wait for the chance to style it, especially when I am so passionate about the city.The Liverpool pocket square is a cream/off-white colour with the famous Liver building and waterfront pictured within a silhouette of an unknown person. I asked Michael was this person connected to the city as it was someone I didn’t recognise. Here is what he had to say when I asked him.
The idea behind that face is showing the multicultural heritage of Liverpool, its growing international population and diversity that this city offers. Hence choosing a face that is representing this heritage.
I loved that a city’s heritage can be captured in a piece of 33x33cm silk twill. At £49.99 it is a little bit on the pricey side, but if you know someone who loves to add a pocket square to their outfit and loves Liverpool as much as I do then it is an ideal gift for them.
Now, let’s see how I styled the pocket square. For this outfit I kept it all British, I paired the pocket square with a Burton Menswear suit, Loake brogues, a white Eton shirt and finished it off with a Holland Esquire tie. I felt the camel suit worked well with the pocket square and the brown brogues as all the colours complimented each other nicely.
I’d like to thank Michael for the opportunity to work with his brand and if you would like to see the other items he has to offer then click the link here https://www.mensfinest.co.uk/.
