Rags to Riches

Pocketing Augustus Rag

The sartorial Jarrod Hartwig and Michael Dinh have caught our eye with their Augustus Rag label. Founded in 2010 and Houston-based, Augustus Rag offers a pocket topper that fills the gap between a pocket square and a bandanna — creations far more brash, utilitarian  and witty than a mere handkerchief. Fabric patterns range from basic black-backed florals (inspired by Paul Morrisey’s onstage employment of flowers in his back pocket) and endearing ginghams to relaxed pinstripes. It’s required wearing for any modern-day dandy. From $25, at The Class Room, Myth & Symbol, Reserve Supply Co.
