On this pocket square we’ve used John Martin’s oil painting of the destruction of the great cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79 AD. This painting works brilliantly as a red pocket square with the contrast between dark and vibrant colours and means it really stands out, especially when paired with a darker jacket. We particularly like the flat fold and more flamboyant Dunaway and you can learn how to create those folds here on our guide on how to fold a pocket square. See more details about the painting below.

If you are not completely happy with your purchase for any reason, we will provide you with a full refund or exchange.

Product Review

Petro Mendes - The Hogtown Rake Editor

"These pocket squares are works of art in and of themselves. You may first look at them and think that's too flamboyant, but these squares prove a very valuable lesson: the busier, the better."
