What Initial :

In celebrating its 96th year in business, Giovanni’s applauds the attention being given in the fashion industry to an “old friend,” the POCKET SQUARE.  New to the Boomer Generation’s offspring, the pocket square (handkerchief) is older than Giovanni’s, dating back four hundred years when a Venetian lady (Italian, of course) invented the first pocket square by cutting a square out of  pure flax and decorated it with lace.  Unaffected by the whims of the fashion industry, Giovanni’s has considered pocket squares a staple for years.  In recent years, corporate America (men and women) has pinned, stuffed, pointed, or poufed pocket squares on jackets and suits to enhance or customize an outfit.  Interestingly enough, the four hundred year old pocket square has become the finishing detail not only for formal  but also for the more casual and informal attire.
