Hanky folded like a shell

Ways To Fold Hankies

By | Romancing

A handkerchief’s importance is not to be dismissed. Despite modest proportions, it has led to the ubiquitous addition of a welt pocket to all coats. And its positioning close to the eyeline marks the necessity in choosing the right one.

The Sexton approach to this choice relies on our modus operandi of “romancing the look”. Our line of pocket squares will allow for this through a play on both hues and textures. Ranging from woollen blends to silks, polkadots to paisleys; our collection will accompany all palettes through an adjunction of colours, and all seasons through choice of fibre.

To “romance”, perfuse well combined contrasting tones to expand the palette, or opt for a more delicate fold to include a touch of femininity.

This process remains essential in finishing off the labours of our craftsmanship.

Tri-fold
Laying your pocket square flat, pleat three times and fold over perpendicular to pleats.

Shell
Pleat in same manner as tri-fold, including more gathers along the length of the square. Fold over and bulge out when placing it in welt.

Lily
Create dimple in center of handkerchief and twist to maintain at base. Lift one corner out and place in welt.

The five point
Gather all four corners of square , arrange opposite side into a point, fold in half and arrange in pocket.

The Lion

By | Journal, Romancing

Lions are truly noble creatures. For centuries they have been associated with royalty, heralded as symbols of honour and pride, stamped as marks of distinction upon products of great quality, and have stood guard over the rare and the precious.

Now, the lion proudly adorns our blazer stripe ties, and can sit upon the lapels of the finest Edward Sexton suits, an enduring testimony to their quality. See our Lapel pins.

Tweed Wedding Suit

Tone on Tone tweed

By | Journal, Romancing

There is perhaps nothing more seasonal than authentic Scottish and Irish Tweed. Rustic, textural and earthy, a fine tweed sports coat or even a country suit feels both timelessly elegant and sensitively seasonal in character.

The impressive variety of yarns employed in the weaving of the best tweed ensures that the cloth displays a deep, tonal and complex palette. In the hands of Edward Sexton and shaped with a beautifully balanced silhouette, this often humble fabric becomes a thing of great beauty, elevated to the perfect Sexton garment.
