BRAND STORY

One sunny summer afternoon in Madrid, when Jenny-Jing Zhao entered a lifestyle store she was amazed by the variety and colorfulness of silk pocket squares she saw. Upon returning to Shanghai, Jenny who had been working in the fashion industry, decided to make her own pocket squares to bring the stylish gentlemen’s accessories to her home city.

When teamed up with her brother Xing, a new brand was born: a men’s fashion and lifestyle brand with a focus on men’s clothing and accessories designed and made in Shanghai, a city that has a history and tradition for men who care about what they wear.

Y.C.B. foundersDrawing influences from art, literature, film, graphic design and architecture, the brother and sister team started out of their first collection of men’s accessories with printed pocket squares, made of quality Chinese silk from the city of Suzhou. With popularity of the beautifully made pocket squares amongst China’s new gentlemen, in 2015, Y.C.B. delved further into designing collections of  stylish men’s lifestyle products including neckties, bow ties, silk scarves, leather goods and shirts to its audience in China.
