Charvet Now Available Online At Mr. Porter

I had mixed feelings when I saw that Charvet was online at Mr. Porter ( . I was happy that I could now order some of my favourite pochettes- yes, I wear other people's brands - and yet I was sad to think that the exclusivity of having to walk into the store opposite the Ritz at 28, place Vendôme in Paris was now gone.

Buy it here: Why is a Charvet Pocket Square So Good? The answer is that they use corrosive printing or 'Ronjan' printing (could be misspelt because I heard it from an Italian's mouth) - which is a technique where the ink sinks right through to the other side. Other forms of printing on silk leave a ghosting effect on the underside. There is a lot less ghosting on the Charvet pochette. I actually think at 46 pounds on the Mr Porter website that this is a steal. The other thing to note is that the hem is roll stitched by hand - or at least, the finish feels like it is hand roll stitched.

A Quote From The Novel Brideshead Revisited

“Sebastian entered — dove-grey flannel, white crepe-de-Chine shirt, a Charvet tie, my tie as it happened, a pattern of postage stamps.”
