The goods

Hip to be square Pocket squares, scarves and tenuguis are all in at the moment but men are being directed to the big luxury brands and other usual suspects to get their fix. Hong Kong-based True Faith is altogether something different both in origin and techniques. We love the polygon patterns and laser printing on its scarves and the Kaobang (above right; HK$1,200) and the Bryllyant (above left; also HK$1,200) are the pick of the bunch. True Faith is available from www.truefaithscarfs.com.

 

Buckle up Martin Margiela doesn't have much to do with Maison Martin Margiela these days but we certainly haven't noticed a drop in quality. We're big fans of this classic brown woven leather belt (above right; HK$2,899) but, for something with a bit more punch, we recommend the chunky black leather belt (above left; HK$4,299) with hidden keyholder. Maison Martin Margiela is at 10 Ice House Street, Central, tel: 2869 770.

 

      

Future perfect The year 2013 is going to be a big one for sci-fi in Hollywood and it seems Christopher Bailey over at Burberry got the memo. Bailey's spring-summer collection is all about space-age fabrics and futuristic designs. What caught our eye is the forward-thinking spin on the Burberry overcoat seen in this look of blue metallic silk twill caban (HK$24,500), cotton seersucker jacket (HK$14,500), metallic cotton classic fit shirt (HK$4,900), cotton seersucker trousers (HK$7,900), geometric woven skinny tie (HK$1,600), metallic blue sunglasses (HK$2,000) and leather shoes (all above left; HK$4,900). But the future doesn't always have to be shiny and metallic: we also love this extraterrestrial look of geometric-pattern oversized caban (HK$27,000), wool and silk cotton twill jacket (HK$14,500), geometric print shirt (HK$5,500), wool and silk cotton twill trousers (HK$7,900), abstract-pattern skinny tie (HK$1,600), leather shoes (HK$4,900) and sunglasses (all above right; HK$2,000). Burberry Prorsum is at 16 Chater Road, Central, tel: 2868 3511.

 

Style check It's all vivid patterns and colours this spring-summer and Tommy Hilfiger is no different, taking the workman-like check shirt and giving it a striking twist. We like the multi-coloured button-down collar shirt (above right; HK$990) as well as the loose-collared option (above left; also HK$990). Tommy Hilfiger is in Ocean Terminal, Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2735 7622.
