More than 22,000 views! Thanks for all the success! All pocket squares are $22 for US and $23 for non-US. Wait time will be about 2 weeks. I really encourage many buyers to pay in advance as it will light a fire to get your orders done. Thanks everyone. ____________ OUT OF STOCK: Brown Houndstooth Cotton ( 2 remaining) Blue Gingham Cotton Green Gingham Cotton Red Blue Yellow Check Cotton ____________ Red White Blue Gingham: 13 x 13. Same price as everything else, $22 for US and $23 for non-US. Title: Lavender Microgingham Cotton (same shade as the lavender gingham linen). 13x13 inches. 18 squares per inch. Please copy and paste "Lavender Microgingham Cotton" when sending me a PM so I know exactly which one you want. Title: Black Gingham Cotton. 13 x 13 inches. 9 squares per inch. Copy and paste what is in bold when sending me a PM. All older stuff is below: Red Mini Flowers and Vines: 13 x 13 inches. 100% cotton, floral print. The red shows pretty well on the opposite side but appears with low contrast. The finished product photos show that even without any geographical landmarks indicating where a straight line would be, I can still roll this into a perfectly straight edge. The photo with the straight edge was shot with bad exposure since I had the aperture way down to get high DOF. Like all my new fabric purchases, I only purchased enough for about 8 or 9 pocket squares. Get them before they're all gone. These are collectors' items. Or not.Blue Mini Flowers: 13 x 13 inches. 100% cotton. The blue doesn't show up so well on the opposite side. Added June 2010: Brown Houndstooth Cotton (appears to be brown and pink, is actually a natural flax color). This is a medium weight fabric. [b]13 x 13 inches. Red, Blue, Yellow check Cotton. This is a medium weight fabric. All sold out.Grape Gingham Cotton. This is a light weight, shirting fabric. Blue Chain Stripe Cotton. This is a medium weight fabric and has a bit of rippling similar to the effect of seersucker. It will be 13.75 inches x 13.75 inches. Here are the older designs: 1: 220 thread count Italian cotton. The weight of this stuff is very light and crisp (very annoying to roll). Please describe this as "Lavender and White Ghost Check in cotton". 2: Italian Pima. Please describe as "White Graph on Royal Blue in cotton" when ordering. This is 13.5 inches by 13.5 inches. 3: Italian Pima. Please describe as "bright pink graph on white cotton" when ordering. 4: Please describe as "white satin squares with lavender stripes." This fabric is amazing in that it changes with the angle of light reflectant upon it. White with satin squares at some angles, a faint lavender is present at other angles. I've included two photos just to show this. 5: Please describe as "white satin squares with yellow stripes." Same deal as above except it has yellow stripes. And if you haven't seen it before, here's what they look like once sewn up: Forgot to mention that these are all still available: Below, from top to bottom: lavender linen gingham, green cotton gingham (sold out), red cotton gingham, blue cotton gingham (sold out), white linen (sold out). Below: navy linen and pink cotton gingham.

Blue Mini Flowers #2: 13 x 13 inches. 100% cotton.
Any idea when / if we might see the white linen squares again?
White linen will be reintroduced in mid January. The white linen that I will be getting will be much higher quality than the stuff before. Fewer slubbing and the fibers should be very uniform. Will be Irish linen. Price will be the same as everything else. Not sure if people like slubbing or not. ____________ OUT OF STOCK: Blue Gingham Cotton Green Gingham Cotton Red Blue Yellow Check Cotton Brown houndstooth cotton (2 remaining) ____________ Everything is sewn by myself. Fabric is hand rolled and hand sewn and all patterns match properly at the edge. The rolls are always round and utmost care is taken to hide the stitching properly. Red White Blue Gingham: 13 x 13. Same price as everything else, $22 for US and $23 for non-US.
Took less than a week from order to delivery. As everyone has said, very nice handwork and fabrics. I'll have to keep my eye out for new fabrics being introduced. Would not hesitate to buy more. Highly recommended for those who haven't taken the plunge.
EDIT: 2/9/11: NO MORE WHITE LINEN.For now. Will try to get white linen with contrast edging production up and running. Hope the price of $30 per white linen with contrast edging sounds good. The linen I'll use will be very fine with no slubbing and feels almost like silk. Thinking of switching to a much more fine French linen or Italian linen. But the cost is just too high. Tell me what you guys think. EDIT 1/28/11: I will NO LONGER ship to addresses at business buildings that sort your mail. Way too easy for things to get lost. Please give me your home addresses. Wait time is extending to about 4-5 weeks. Will try to make about 5 squares over the weekend and another 5 over the week next week. That should lower the q down to about 2 weeks. Thanks. Jan 2: 23,000 views! Hundreds of satisfied customers. Thanks StyleForum! February 3: 24,000 views!!!! EDIT: I'm entering finals and proficiencies weeks (3 weeks full of proficiencies with exams the first two weeks concurrently with those proficiencies followed by a week of finals). Wait time is increasing to 3 weeks. EDIT: I am now taking all payments in advance. It is unfortunate that I must do this but there have been a lot of flaking out and non-responses from buyers. The wait time is about 2 weeks max. One more design. I will add another in about 1 day. Back in stock: White linen. The new white linen will be much higher quality than the previous batch. It has less slubbing and the fibers are much more uniform. The source is Ireland and it is the same linen used by many of the high end fashion designers. New stuff: Name: Blue and white puppytooth. Linen. 13 x 13 inches. $22 each for US and $23 for non-US. This is my favorite pocket square at the moment. The linen is absolutely gorgeous. Only 6 will be made ==> 1 remaining. This will be a collectors' item. One will make its way to the National Archives or the Smithsonian.
