This is a classic and versatile pocket square design. The name comes from the French for the black tie dress code, ‘le smoking’ generally refers to a tuxedo. This square does indeed pair beautifully with black tie, but also goes beautifully with a sports coat, even tweed. Menswear aficionado Simon Crompton has declared it to be his favourite pocket square design, and who are we to argue? Simonnot Godard have been making pocket squares and handkerchiefs since 1787, so it is no wonder that they do it better than anyone else. The company is uncompromising in its commitment to materials and process: only the finest cotton and linen is used, designs are chosen from over 200 years of archived patterns and then woven using traditional weaving machines. Each pattern in Simonnot Godard’s cloths is intricately woven into the design, rather than being printed onto the fabric. When the cloth has been woven it is sent to the Voges region, where it is washed and finished in the famously pure mountain water. The final stage involves hand rolling and stitching the fine edges of each piece, a fantastically difficult task that Simonnot Godard do more skilfully than anyone. They are truly the finest cotton and linen pocket squares that money can buy.
