Rats clearly outnumber cats toward the edges,
silk twill “cat and mouse” pocket square by Hermès
but around the center, the felines gain a foothold.
This pocket square, with a checkerboard of household furballs set against a background of what looks to be burnt coral (though it comes labeled “rouge”), serves to liven up an otherwise funereal suit. (black-tie herringbone wool suit by Black Fleece)
I love: ambiguous colors, fashion created in the likeness of Animalia, and surprises that come in boxes of orange.
