Get Dapper, Book Style

This library check out card pocket square is so good. The font, the lines, the way you have to look at it closely to realize what it is; I just love it.

Fabulous accessories for the dapper bookish gentleman.

I don’t think I need to tell you that this is a most swoon-worthy bookish groom accessory.

It is available in almost any color, and also comes as a tie, bow tie, or pashmina:

And the ties!

The website recommends using a Sharpie to add a personalized title and due date to commemorate significant dates (again, so perfect for a wedding or other special occasion).

*Please note that I firmly believe that anyone who enjoys any particular bookish accessory should flaunt it with pride, gender norms be damned.
