Pocket Squares: A Discussion Thread, Questions, Opinions, Suggestions..... - Page 161post #2402 of 41407/6/12 at 12:21pmpost #2403 of 41407/6/12 at 8:36pmThread StarterI think the colors and mix of patterns are pretty good. But try some different folds, puffs, points, etc. The pocket square is just kinda laying there and needs a more formal or expressive look. Just look at my Tumblr blog and you will see tons of good ways to wear a pocket square.

Yeah, your tumblr is awesome and in fact my tie and square choice was inspired by a picture I found there... But I need a lot of practice making puffs, I can't get them to look like anything in your blog at allpost #2406 of 41407/8/12 at 8:56pmpost #2407 of 41407/8/12 at 9:03pmQuote:
Pay attention to Spoo's pocket whale . . .post #2408 of 41407/8/12 at 9:13pm
Thanks. I suspect that's some kind of an inside joke I'll be laughing at in about 2 days when I finish reading the thread. But in the meantime: I'm familiar with Spoo's work. Partly that's how I ended up here.
I'm pretty comfortable with shirt/tie/jacket selection (though, day to day, I'm probably more adventurous/loud than is strictly approved by SF -- and will try to spare you that). But squares are confounding me. Sure, I could go white (and, of course, in a pinch would do). But until I experiment, how will I progress?
Anyway, as I said: back to lurking....post #2409 of 41407/9/12 at 8:01amThread StarterQuote:
Don't over think this stuff. It should be easy.
This is a very good video by Will at A Suitable Wardrobe. THis is also my favorite fold (a puff with points)post #2410 of 41407/9/12 at 8:03amThread Starterpost #2411 of 41407/9/12 at 8:08amThread Starterpost #2412 of 41407/9/12 at 9:12am
For some reason I can't get puffs with points to look good, I know they have to look somewhat natural but mine look just bad... I've been wearing a TV fold for years and I guess that doesn't help. I hope those videos help me, thank you :)
Does this look any better? I'm wearing it for the first time today...post #2413 of 41407/9/12 at 10:01amThread StarterQuote:Originally Posted by RDiaz

I think it is a very good conservative puff. Not every wants or should have an exploding pocket parachute lookpost #2414 of 41407/9/12 at 4:15pmThread Starterpost #2415 of 41407/12/12 at 4:10pmOK, not sure how all will feel about this. It's probably a bit on the louder/peacock side of the SF spectrum, but I'd appreciate thoughts on the color match on the square. Tie is purple, btw; not sure that comes out in the pics.
EDIT: BTW, I was not going for a TV fold here; I was going for more of a "puff with points".

Apologies for the crappy pics.
