Matched Set

When the partners behind the accessories line Gentry were planning their first collection, they weren't thinking outside the box, they were thinking about the box. "We knew we wanted something that would include everything they needed to polish an outfit," says Annie Imamura, who designs the ties and pocket squares along with Greg Sato, responsible for crafting the hardware like tie bars and collar pins, all of which are made in Los Angeles and come coordinated together in a kit. The idea, according to Imamura, is that you can sport the pieces together or separately, in varying levels of dapper. "Whether it's the collar clip worn without a necktie or a tie pin and pocket square for a date,  we wanted guys to be able to change it up while still looking timeless."
