James Andrew On M. De Phocas

Worthy of a read. James Andrew's presentation of M. De Phocas  -

"When my young friends, Jesus Torres and Alexis Zambrano, had difficulty finding fine men’s accessories, they took matters into their own hands, and decided to make their own. Named after the French author Jean Lorrain’s dandy character, Monsieur de Phocas, Toress and Zambro’s brand finds inspiration in their grandfathers’ attire. Whether it be dressing “…for social functions or merely retrieving the mail…,” collar bars, tie pins and the like were requisite—the accoutrement’s that have, (Torres and Zambrano lament on their site), “…been forgotten in the rush for expediency.” As you might imagine, I’m thrilled to see these kindred spirits reviving the elegance of a lost era."
