Johan Georg Arsenius 1818-1903, Gentleman, the Favourite Horse of King Carl XV of Sweden, c.1854. © Nationalmuseum, Stockholm
Although known as King Charles (Carl) XV in Sweden, he was actually the ninth Swedish king of that name, as his predecessor, Charles IX had adopted a numeral according to a fictitious history of Sweden. Johan Arsenius, was the premier equine painter of his day, so it was only fitting that he would be the natural choice for King Carl to capture his favourite horse.
We really like the deep tones on this pocket square, with the brown and yellow hues providing a perfect complement to more muted outfits.

Johan Georg Arsenius, 1818-1903, was a Swedish artist, who mainly painted scenes involving horses and cavalry scenes, along with some portrait works. He also served in the military, reaching the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.
Arsenius was a student of Carl Wahlbom, who was the leading Swedish painter of animals at the time, who helped refine his style, but the majority of Arsenius' work was concentrated on equine scenes.
We were very pleased to create this series of four pocket squares in collaboration with Götrich 1730. Located in Stockholm, Götrich is Sweden's oldest bespoke tailors spanning six generations. Throughout the years, Götrich has developed its reputation around guaranteed quality and craftsmanship of the highest grade.
This collection of pocket squares features four works from the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, featuring Gustaf Cederström, Johan Georg Arsenius, Anders Zorn, and Hans Makart.
The art of hand rolling pocket squares is a unique craft and truly makes each piece individual and unique. We feel that the precision and care taken by our skilled artisans gives each scarf its own unique character, finish and feel. To create the finest rolled hems, the edge of the silk or cotton pocket square must be softy turned over with a handheld needle and then small stitches are inserted approximately one half to one centimetre apart around the edge, creating a supple yet prominent border.
It’s absolutely the best way to finish a pocket square for a variety of reasons but the key ones are for both visual effect and structure. Rolling by hand is the only way to get a really nice clean plump finish on the edge and this gives a really nice depth to the edges. It’s a more expensive process than machine rolling but by using a machine you’re often left with a flat edge and you don’t get the same luxurious feel. On top of this, the rolled edges add a lot more structure to your pocket square.
