Scoff all you want at the dandy-esque ways of the handkerchief carrier — that is, until the fair lady between the two of you at the bar accidentally spills her drink and all you’ve got is a paper napkin. Make no mistake; the charms of a freshly laundered pocket square aren’t lost on a damsel in distress. Packaged in groups of three, Izola Handkerchief Sets ($40) are made for everything from tucking some aesthetic flair into a breast pocket, to assisting in your social life’s little emergencies. The 14” x 14” squares come in manly throwback themes such as Forrest, Pioneer, and Stars, and the fact that they’re made from high quality, 100% natural cotton ensures that the next time you’re called upon by a slightly uncoordinated maiden, you’ll be ready.
Gear Patrol is a gathering place for guys hell-bent on making the most of their time on planet Earth in the 21st century. What we do is what magazines have always done: provide a filter on the world, our take on what’s valuable and interesting, using original photography and thoughtful storytelling -- but with the agility a website affords. That means we can tapdance between brand new product releases and timeless stories about people and far-off places, on the same day, on the same page, from our HQ in New York or anywhere else in the world. We value our long game and our short game equally. More this way.
