We were honored last night to host the launch of Henry & 9th, a men’s accessory company featuring a new line of gentleman’s pocket squares. The Loft was full of dapper gentleman and dashing ladies toasting the future success of Jeremy Hunter, founder of Henry & 9th.
“Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society” – Samuel Langhorne Clemens (aka Mark Twain)
Such words underscore a universal truism: a person’s sense of style merits the attention of others. Thus, at Henry and 9th, we believe that even the smallest detail – yes, something as simple as an accessory – can make a substantial impression.
Inspired by the eclectic style of Red Hook, Brooklyn, USA, our company blends contemporary style with the classic suiting standards that have withstood the test of time. Thus, whether you prefer the flare of bold patterns, or the conservative appeal of classic solids, we are confident you will find the right design to accentuate your suiting preference.
Yes, details matter. Prepare to make an impression based on your individuality and sense of style. In the end, accessorize your wardrobe with a view toward making an impression.

“Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.” Prov 31:30
LÁ RAW by Los Angeles Rawwater presents their very first gallery show. Rawwater is the brainchild of Efehi Ogbebor and Kaymar Haye, both who are Cal Poly Pomona Alumni. They felt their views and opinions were missing in the world of fashion. They created the LÁ RAW magazine and LÁ RAW apparel.
“LIFE is that existence that is given to man to live for a purpose, to live to his own satisfaction and pleasure”.
“DEATH is the end of all life in the individual or the thing; if physical, the crumbling of the body into dust from whence it came. He who lives not uprightly, dies completely in the crumbling of the physical body, but he who lives well, transforms himself from that which is mortal, to immortal.” –Marcus Garvey
