A Feather in Your ...

You likely haven't tacked anything onto your jacket's lapel since senior prom, but these jaunty feather boutonnieres have a lot more style than that little flower.

Crafted in the traditional style of a Bavarian gamsbart (typically worn on a hunter's hat), the pins are handmade by a German company that's been been producing them in a small factory on the outskirts of the Black Forest since 1924. And if you're having trouble choosing, might we suggest the longer one? According to Alpine lore, the size of the gamsbart reflects one's manliness. $40, at the Cooper-Hewitt museum shop

Antonio Azzuolo, the Ralph Lauren alum making a name for himself with his eponymous label, pinned similar plumage by Brooklyn artist Christian Fastrup to his jackets for his dandified spring collection.
