Brooklyn-based The Hill-Side joined forces with Monocle to craft these handmade pocket squares that are made with contrast selvedge. The hand embroidered designs feature The Hill-Sde and Monocle logos and are available in two colorways. Fold them squared or with the classic two points.
Our friends over at Gear Patrol have teamed up with swimwear label Onia for this limited-edition colorway of their Amaury board short. You may recall our recent interview with Carl of Onia as he discussed why he chose to enter the swimwear market highlighting a major gap in finding a well-fitting pair of shorts that’s not overdone with pockets and designs. Onia’s designs are more timeless with a more tailored fit, an 8″ inseam and curved waistband and are technically sound with their paneled cotton nylon construction.
They’re made in the USA and this special collaboration in ocean blue are limited to 99 pieces. These feature khaki detailing on the drawstring, zipper linings and a coin pocket.
