I'm not sure of the maker of this one. But, I love the color combination. It is subtle/muted for something so colorful and would be an ideal pocket square to mix with most classic fall/winter colors. I wouldn't wear it so puffy, but this pic is a display piece and not to show how to wear it IRL.

Okay, I need some help here...  I have a plain rust colored pocket square that will work well with this tie, my lighter charcoal suit and a classic, white dress shirt but I'm looking for other suggestions to spice it up a little.  This is for my wedding, so I'd like to stick to our colors which are fall type colors...hence the tie I purchased.  Rust oranges, olive greens, browns, etc.  What do you all think?   I just don't know what works well with this color combination and plaid/check pattern tie.  Open to suggestions...even if you think I should wear a different shirt.  However, the suit won't change.  Thanks!  - Jay

Charcoal is a neutral colour and comes in various shades. The only charcoal suit that I have is mid grey. With charcoal I'd go for blues, greens and blacks and purple*. I'd save the rusts, reds and browns for an olive suit, if you have one.  But of course it's just my opinion, though I've been dressing like this (paying attention to clothes) since 1980.

 

*Purple is probably one of the most versatile colours around and goes with most colours.

I must warn you that if you wear that tie and pocket square combination for your wedding, it won't be long before all of your photos will have a "dated" look to them. You know when people post wedding pics of their dad or uncle in "fashion" apparel and how odd it seems? Yet, pics with classic elements still look right, don't they?

So, here are my suggestions. Wear the charcoal suit, the white shirt and then get a classic wedding tie (silver and black houndstooth or small check) and white linen pocket square. For Fall colors, wear a boutineer with a mix of autumnal flowers and berries. That way you have classic dress elements and your seasonal colors. You will end up looking so much better in the photos.

Keep the tie you bought and wear it to the rehearsal dinner with a blue suit or blazer and a blue shirt. But the solid rust pocket square is too bright and shiny. I would get something else. Maybe a mossy green.

Hunting for some pocket squares for autumn... what do you think of these two offerings from E. & G. Cappelli? I'm thinking of getting both, I believe they would look great with tweed...

Very nice. I like the touch of light blue. Perfect to coordinate with a blue shirt and most earth tones. It is just enough without being too matchy.

Yea I thought they would look great with fall colours, and I think #1 would look good with blue odd jackets too. Definately ordering them as soon as their online store "re-opens" smile.gif

Very nice davesmith.

This is a cross post from the vintage images thread. I realize the color has been stylized as was the fashion back in the 50's but I thought this might still be interesting. If you have to ask who the man is who is sitting in front of the piano with the candelabra on it, then I'm older than I thought.

Would it be tacky or awesome if I made a pocket square with Hokusai's The Great Wave off Kanagawa?
