Dressing with style is a passion that requires the knowledge of the smallest details, especially when you enter the world of craftsmanship, of which I can say that I have really learned all about!
In fact, traveling around Italy in search of the best materials and craftsmen for the realization of The Outlierman products gave me a chance to get into an old tradition in which no detail is left to chance. For example, you may think that the quality of materials and the press are the only elements to be considered in judging the manufacture of a pocket square, and this is partly true, but more and more often the finishing is what really makes the difference.
When pocket squares are entirely made by hand many details are taken for granted, but not all have the characteristic that in the field has always been considered a sign of high quality: the hand rolled edges. These are in fact one of the most precious details that can make a pocket square not only of high quality but really unique: that’s why each The Outlierman pocket square is finished by hand, and watching our artisans rolling up the edges and then, with such delicacy, sewing them with their own hands made me aware of the incredibly talented work that lies behind every accessory, a work that can turn it into a really unique piece.
How can you distinguish between an hand rolled edge and a machine-sewed one? You just need to look at the stitches, which in the case of a sewing made with a machine will be of grater number and more visible compared to the realization by hand. The winning element for a refined finishing is instead an edge rolled very tight and sewed with a series of stitches barely visible on both sides.
These are the details that make the difference, and a true gentleman can not overlook them for a conscious choice of his stylish accessories!
