Most men have a hard time scouring for gems when shopping. This is why for its second year, ArteFino presents The Barracks, the for-men space at the prestigious artisan fair, which will run until Sep. 2 at Penthouse, 8 Rockwell.

The items at The Barracks are carefully selected by heritage fan-maker Monchet Olives, describing it as “a place where every gentleman keeps his treasures.” Here are some items you can score at the little space.

Making art wearable through fashion, Jim Weaver features scarves and pocket squares with bright, eye-catching hand-painted designs digitally printed on 100% authentic silk.
