Pocket Square Clothing was established in 2011 as a men’s accessory brand. With no formal fashion training but with an architectural and business background, founders Rodolfo Ramirez and Andrew Cheung sought to create a lifestyle brand beyond clothing. To date they feature a collection of handcrafted bow ties, skinny neckties and pocket squares. The brand is a reflection of the ideals behind the Urban Gentleman. This is their effort to tell a story, to inspire and be inspired, and to create a powerful connection with you through timeless pieces.
The vision is simple: to become a vehicle for the individual exploration of style. Pocket Square Clothing embraces the idea that style comes down to one’s composure and being, the way one carries himself. The mission is to create a collection of visual and artistic accents, accents that then serve as to punctuate and project personality. The brand is inspired by the idea that everyone can move forward in life through style and etiquette, and the belief that clothing is a language that communicates one’s individualistic qualities. Art, music, entertainment, architecture, and culture define the PSC lifestyle. The brand delves into realms of Urban, Vintage, and Chic Style. Pocket Square Clothing looks to create a brand beyond just clothing, and become a network of individuals who love clothing and use it to help decipher their style.
Why name it Pocket Square?
A pocket square, in its humble beginnings, was derived from the handkerchief, which was used for personal hygiene. The modern day pocket square has since shifted to an iconic piece used as a subtle accent to distinguish one self. Deconstructing the significance of the pocket square, Pocket Square Clothing sought to take the iconic piece’s symbolism and apply it to the broader scheme of clothing design.
Made in Los Angeles:
Pocket Square Clothing takes pride in its domestic manufacturing and attention to detail. Using traditional techniques, everything is carefully handcrafted by some of the oldest remaining craftsmen in the heart of Los Angeles. Each piece comes with a narrative and fully handcrafted vintage inspired packaging. The brand follows the mantra that American made is better, and that quality and attention to detail is key.
