I want to buy another white linen pocket square. On the cheaper side and on the smaller side. I already have a Kent Wang pocket square that I like, so similar to that. Any ideas?

Try this one from J Crew. http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/a...3871/73871.jsp


At the same time, you might want to consider one that is a bit more expensive but really thick, heavy linen. A classic white linen you will wear repeatedly for years to come so what is an extra $20 or so for one of the very best? I've had some of my favorite linen ones for 10+ years.

The extra heavy ones have a starched feel that really holds their shape all day long. Just sayin'

Any other suggestions than J-Crew? They're just not my favorite store . Ideally, I'd like one where I can do the straight across flat fold (tv fold?) like 1 cm above the pocket. I'd like to be able to make the length correct easily, be able to push it in easily, and for it to not be too thick.

Any linen pocket square can be folded to do that.

Well, I'm wondering if a thicker or thinner linen would be better for this and what size... and who to buy it from.

Go back two pages. Select one, make a decision.

The two options were: Kent Wang (which I already have) and a pocket square that won't be available for a few weeks....

Any other alternatives?

I've tried folding them and keeping them neatly organized, but they've just ended up loose in a drawer. Spoo has one of these from Kent Wang:



I'm jealous.

Oh, don't get me wrong. It's bookmarked. I just need to figure out where I could put it...

Turn it upside-down and hang it from the ceiling.

I visited a men's specialty shop that had a massive glass brandy snifter on a table. It must have been 18" tall and 12 inches wide. The owner would just grab a pocket square, put it into a loose ball and toss it into the glass container. It was a very colorful display. When he selected a shirt and tie, he would just look at the container and reach in a pull out whatever color seemed to work. It was actually fun to watch and it was so much more effortless than folding, hanging, etc.


I have a small vintage mahogany tray. I fold then and fan them out. The seasonal ones I put away with my other seasonal clothing in hanging canvas garment bags that are stored in a separate bedroom. That reminds me, it is about time to pull out the spring and summer pocket squares and put away the fall/winter ones....
