Pocket squares have been around for centuries, but not all pocket squares are like ours. It has been said that the pocket square was first worn as a fashion piece by King Richard II of England, which is where our name comes from. Rex Riccardi is the Latin translation of King Richard, the "inventor" of the pocket square.
We aim to create a unique and modern twist on the pocket square, combining art and fashion. Our pieces are not just a pocket square, they are a piece of art. The pocket square no longer needs to be the accessory to a suit, it can now be the focal point.
In addition to being a focal point of style, Rex Riccardi has an impact on the fight against childhood cancer. One of the founders of Rex Riccardi, Christopher Muth, is a survivor of childhood cancer. He has found that art and style are great ways to inspire and empower those impacted by cancer. Ten percent of each pocket square sold will be donated to benefit Oncology Research at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
