On Valentine’s Day (14th February), lovers express their affections and men present their greetings & gifts. One month later on 14th March, we celebrate “White Day” (ホワイトデー), the day women present gifts to their lovers.
If you are looking for gift ideas on White Day, Darmian has some gift ideas for you and your stylish friends who appreciate some trend-forward formal wear:
1) Ties (Special, Not Traditional Ties)
Ties remain one of the classic gifts for White Day, but you can always make them more special with Designer Ties, and/or Folded Ties.
- Designer Ties: If you’re getting bored with the traditional plain-coloured ties, perhaps you should take a look at designer ties. Colourful and stylish designer ties are suitable at work and for many different occasions. Here are some designer ties by Bettie Jiang from Bettie Bespoke Boutique, a talented fashion designer started her business with the admirable working experience in Alexander McQueensee (see more designer ties by Bettie here)
- Folded Ties: Yes, folded-ties not bow-ties. The word “folds” refers to the number of times the tie is folded (a concept similar to “layers”). Most ties are constructed by sewing an inlay into the tie for thickness. But fold-ties (usually more premium ties) is made out of a single piece of fabric and folded for several times. A “3-fold-tie”, for example, means the fabric is folded for 3 times (see more three-folded ties here)
2) Pocket Squares
The pocket square is a decorative addition to suit jacket. The pocket square is a small-sized cloth for show and put in your jacket breast pocket, usually made of silk, linen, cotton and wool.
Pocket squares have now become a symbol of well-dressed men. There are many styles, from solid colours which are easiest for most men, to designer pocket squares for stylish gentlemen (see more pocket squares here).
