To put things in perspective, I am attaching a pic of the pocket square.
Valid points and thanks for follow-up. The one thing I liked about this pocket square was the fact there were 4 shades of blue (from darkest to lightest w/subtle white polka dots) in each quadrant. The shades would serve as accents, but I do agree and would possibly be paired with a darker tie (royal/navy blue). I do have a white linen square and actually worn that combo in the past.I wanted to switch things up a bit and move away from the white linen square and add a bit...
Thanks for the feedback. Your recommendation is quite appealing, but since I posted this, I've actually been trying to pair combinations and came up with this mix:Shifting things a bit and going with quad blue patterned subtle polka dotted pocket square (different shade of blue in each quadrant)- Solid white shirt (we agreed on this)- Solid light blue 7-fold tie- Grey socks (with multi stripe shades of blue. Accent suit color/pants)- Dark brown santoni Fatte de Mano...

What is a good shirt/tie (in terms of style/pattern for the shirt/tie) combination to match with paisley pocket square on a light grey (50% mohair / 50% wool) summer suit? Suggestions would be great. Thanks!

The suit came in it's own garment bag and was folded in half and inside of a box upon reception, so there was nothing else that attributed to the flattened lapel. Funny thing is I own the same brand suit in a different color which has a perfect roll, and was purchased from the...

Just wondering how often and where should I take it? I just surpassed the 2-year mark and was wondering next steps for proper care? Any advice would be really appreciated. Thanks

Depending on what shirt you buy, the price + alterations should come in around $100. For custom, I just ordered a shirt from J.

Light colors are much more acceptable than many people seem to fear, especially in the summer. As for other thoughts, consider making the tie a knit if you have one or can get one easily. And certainly wear a pocket square. White cotton or linen always looks nice. Something else if you have it, and coordinate properly. Pull the...
