Don't get me wrong OP, I kinda think some lapel pins can be cool.

The ones offered at J Press are neat. But you have to have the confidence/attitude to pull it off.

A poster on here, Mr K, is selling these if you can track him/his profile down. PG was the first really visible member to wear them, and it kind of exploded from there over the summer. They kinda went from 'ah, cool' to overplayed in about a fortnight.

Now I see. So I guess the bracelets are out. Funny, b/c I did immediately think of PG. And you're right, I haven't been reading SF nearly as much as I once did. I'm going to have to mend my ways...

I like the flowers and screw anyone for saying it's copycat. As far as I know, you can only get them from Strasburgo in Tokyo. I was there this summer and the store I went to only had 3, none of which in the colors I was looking for. They carry like 8 varieties normally. I think it's around 3000yen each. I may go back next summer and get some. Strasburgo rocks, they've got a great selection of awesome men's clothing... but it is very expensive if you live in the west. Mr.K's version of them is (no offence Mr.K!) gaudy and too big. It's almost a caricature of the original.

I wear one as well on purpose in hopes of running into a Sr SF'er who will make a mockery out of me and my hot ass wife with an amzing body. True story.

They're not SF approved...

Not by me anyway.

Why do you want to wear that flower lapel pin in the first place?

Wear a flower, would be my suggestion.

Question to the crowd: What on earth is going on with the pocket square in the picture? Looks like shredded to pieces to my eyes. Or am I just not recognising what actually is lace? But then - lace???

In case the OP doesnt know, the SF's mightiest and greatest have already weighed in on the subject of lapel flowers

I would agree that a room full of such flowers would be a bit Stepford Wives. That ain't gonna happen, though, except perhaps in one of those SF meet ups that I keep missing. - B

My point about its popularity in this thread was that it shows how stylistic quirks can catch on like wildfire when critique and a mind toward objectivity are discouraged.
