The modern trend towards gritty realism doesn’t play well with a whole lot of genres, but it’s a godsend for the Western. Unflinching depictions of the violence and mercilessness of the American frontier are a welcome twist on one of the mainstays of cinema. We’re talking 3:10 to Yuma, Bone Tomahawk, and the True Grit remake. Hostiles looks to be the newest example of the update for the genre, starring Christian Bale as the reluctant escort of a Native American chief and his family. The trailer doesn’t give too much away, beyond showing a lot of blue uniformed federal troops out West somewhere, but one thing it does make a point of is how isolated people are in the Wild West. There aren’t many people you can count on for help of any kind, and someone’s as likely to burn your house down as they are to share dinner with you. Maybe both.

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
