GENTRY Fall 2010 – The Salinger Collection

Introducing GENTRY, a modern re-thinking of classic men’s accessories collection. According to Annie Imamura, co-Founder of GENTRY, the idea for GENTRY came about one afternoon in early January 2009 while looking at Mr. Sato’s [co-Founder] new neckties and chatting about how much they admired men’s accessories and what an important role it plays in an ensemble. From there the conversation turned into, “We should make these.” Simple as that.

GENTRY is respect and consideration for the details of an outfit; it’s a classic necktie or the addition of a pocket square which can transform an outfit from forgettable to timeless. The products come in a custom wood box with protective outer sleeve containing one necktie, one pocket square, one collar clip, one tie bar, one tie pin and one GENTRY Handbook of Class & Distinction. All pieces are handcrafted in Los Angeles. Each jewelry piece is crafted of brass and plated in an array of different finishes from 14k gold and sterling silver to black gunmetal. Each necktie is hand sewn from unique fabrics, all of which measure 56″ in length and 2.75″ in width. The pocket square is hand-crafted from cotton and measures 12″ x 12″. Each box set retails for $225.

The collection is currently sold in LA and SF at Acrimony, Alpha, American Rag, Confederacy, Revolve, Shotwell and online at
