Mark, how do you suggest your clients to wear these? The size is a bit hard for a "puff n stuff", but good for a TV fold. Just stick with that?

I dont know the names of the patterns, but the blue looks like snowmen (?) and the white with green could be grapevines, yeah.

Interesting. I really don't mind the raw look to be honest though, just because they are such interesting squares. I am looking forward to getting mine in the mail. They have some pictures of the Sou Sou squares on the lightbox, if you are looking for inspiration.

Yeah, thats what sold me on them I wanted to wear it tips out though - but no worries - you are right, they are extremely unique, and for the price you cannot beat them!

Normally I would avoid anything that did not have handrolled edges, but for these I will make an exception. Especially for $12 a pop... I was pleasantly surprised. Tips out would have been cool though.

They are about 45 x 30 and I tend to trim them down to 20 x 30 and puff and stuff. 20 x 30 is certainly on the small side for a square but the cotton is fairly heavy. On the other hand, if you are a much larger size than me, then maybe 30x30 or even as is would be better.

We are working on finished versions that have been trimmed and could be appropriate for tips up but I still would prefer puff and stuff. Those will be available online when they are ready but we don't intend on putting our current stock of the Sou Sou hanks online.

More examples:

Mark,

Who made the tan coat? I think the keyhole buttonhole doesn't look good on lapel and also too short, just MHO.

Made by La Vera. The shortness of the buttonhole is very much their thing, having seen your coats I'm sure it's not to your taste. You are right though, the work on this buttonhole is a bit dodgy.

Thanks. I didn't see them the other day when I looked at their tumbler. I just went back 4 or 5 pages. They've got some great stuff/pics/style. Edit: now on page 14 or so..real nice ..I'm not very productive today.
