The paisley is particularly nice, G, closely followed by that plaid.

Thanks! That little touch of orange on the paisley adds nice contrast and removes any doubt that you are a Security Guard when worn with a blue blazer.

Is the white one (linen?) with the light blue edging one of Kent Wang's? Looking at his and trying to decide on the shade for he edge, is why I ask.
Thanks, John

I didn't get it from Kent. It is 100% linen and made in Italy. I have seen similar ones at various men's stores. The border is a pale blue on one edge and a medium blue on the next. It gives a bit of contrast that is nice.

I will. I'm looking forward to visiting his shop and maybe even picking up a few new pocket squares.

^ Is there a posted pic of your whole collection a la Vox? I am betting it's pretty impressive.

100% linen, made in Italy, no brand name. Purchased at Saks or Neimans a few years ago.

I visited the Rhinelander Mansion the day after it opened as Ralph Laurens Madison Avenue showcase ('85?). It was crowded and hot but I did manage to purchase this cotton pocket square. It says "Take me to Jamaica where the rum comes from"

No, I have never photographed all of them. I have a very nice collection but it isn't as large as you might think. After accumulating a large number I began to get rid of the ones I didn't wear. For a pocket square to stick around in my closet it has to have a distinct compliment to a jacket and tie. (There are perhaps 6-10 exceptions for sentimental reasons or because of their beautiful design.) Having a well edited collection has it's benefits. I'll take quality over quantity any day.
