Otway & Orford pocket squares

Otway & Orford bring a touch of style, a pop of colour and the perfect personal finishing touch to any jacket or suit with unique silk pocket squares that are made and hand-sewn in England. Working in collaboration with leading artists and galleries, our strikingly different pocket square designs feature vibrant and original works of art depicting favourite sports, iconic aircraft and legendary cars.

Design inspirations include the Spitfire, the Red Arrows, the Le Mans winning Aston Martin DBR1, the Italian Job Mini Coopers, rugby, football, horse racing, cricket and tennis to name but a few. The art design pocket squares in our carefully curated collection never fail to strike a chord with the wearer and, together with their smart gift box, make for a stylish and meaningful self-purchase or a thoughtful present on any occasion.

The original inspiration for Otway & Orford came from my grandfather, a captain of several glamorous liners during the 1920s and 1930s as well as of Royal Navy ships during his wartime service. Captain A.L. Owens RD RNR always sported a pocket square, whether at sea or on land. My grandfather left me his collection and this started an interest in pocket squares. Our brand is named after two of the ships he served on.

Over the years I have collected hundreds of pocket squares but the final drive for creating Otway & Orford was a desire to find stylish and colourful pocket squares that were more personal to me, reflecting my interests and passions (outside of pocket squares). A pocket square is one of few opportunities for men to wear a visible accessory, so making it count is important. As has been written, ‘A man’s pocket square provides a window into his personality’.

We hope you will be as excited as we are when you come aboard and discover the Otway & Orford silk pocket square collection.

PROVENANCE

Our pocket squares are manufactured by family firm RA Smart in Macclesfield, the home of English silk printing, and are delivered to top pockets everywhere. Our silk pocket square designs are printed onto the finest 15oz Mulberry silk twill, which contributes to the high-quality reproduction of the art designs and gives the characteristic sheen and cool touch. During the printing process, we focus not only on the printed side of the pocket squares but also on the non-printed reverse side. This ensures a good balance between the image strength on both sides and means that the pocket squares work perfectly whatever fold is used. The edges of the cut silk squares are skilfully finished by hand-rolling and hand-sewing to create the 'shoestring' hem with its distinctive look and feel, characteristic of top-quality pocket squares. We produce in small batches, allowing us to order only what we need with no waste.

Our gift boxes are made by 5th generation family run business W. MacCarthy & Sons in Woolwich, London. The trays and lids of our gift boxes are made from FSC certified recycled board and are then wrapped with FSC certified papers, a pale blue one for the tray and a blueberry coloured one for the lid. The boxes can be used to store the pocket squares or other small items. If they are disposed of however, the gift boxes are fully recyclable.

The Mulberry silk twill for our pocket squares comes from China and is responsibly sourced by our pocket square manufacturer RA Smart.

The FSC certified recycled board used to make the trays and lids of our gift boxes comes from the Netherlands and the FSC certified papers used to wrap the trays and lids are manufactured in the UK.
