Silk Pocket Squares - Page 2

i have a great charvet and turnbull silks, but they are just too large to fold/ puff/ stuff in my breast pocket without creating an unsightly bulge.
And to think that it's not enough for T&A employees... I met some of their sales reps, and these guys were wearing TWO pocket squares in the same pocket. It looked like an explosion of silk. Also, Charvet doesn't wear two, but they like theirs pronounced as well...

IMO opinion the only way to wear a solid pocket square is in the straight fold, sticking about a half inch out of the pocket. If you use the "points" fold, it looks unsophisticated.

Vineyard Vines' new collection has some interesting pocket squares for $35 a pop (I particularly like the solid white one's with decorative borders). Andrew's Ties in NYC also carries a relatively inexpensive line of pocket squares. Panzer

J Crew has some attractive models currently at around $20.

Sounds like a good way to sell more pocket squares. How many shirts were they wearing?

A co-worker of mine who has been something of a clothes person (although his tastes and my tastes are not very congruent) once mentioned the practice of using "double pocket squares." Until now, I had never heard about it elsewhere. I experimented with it a bit and found it looked bulky in the pocket and a bit too contrived, even for me. Does anybody else among the forumites use double pocket squares? Any opinions on the practice?

Here's the solution to your pocket square falling into the pocket dilema: I have my tailor sew in another pocket withing the breast pocket specifically to hold the thing in place. Get your MTM/Bespoke guy to do the same. Damon

I've bought silk squares from J Press and Paul Stuart. My (plain white) cotton ones are all from BB -boston
