Did you know that in the 1920's 25 Gentlemen formed a "Scarf Pin Society" having three permanent officers King Pin, Linch Pin and Safety Pin - Founder, Secretary and Treasurer respectively. Their aim was to revive the Stick Pin Fashion, members met once a year and would draw lots to borrow pins belonging to the Society to wear at events and dinner parties. Special pins would be commissioned and shown onvelvet cushions at the dinner. It continued until the 1960's. The objective of the society was to "reunite those few gentlemen whose pleasure it is to bring a little colour into a drab word by wearing a scarf or tie pin".
Delightful don't you think? Maybe it should be re-ignited?

A great present or would make a fabulous gift for a groom to wear in a wedding cravat.
