Awesome.

Edit: How do we feel about this guy? I picked it up secondhand recently. Looking forward to working it into a fall outfit.

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....

 

 I bought a clear plastic jar from Wal-Mart to put my pocket squares in. Works for me!

As long as your printing is refined and does it justice, I think it's a good idea.

I'd do a series if I wanted do some different colorways. I wouldn't go messing with the colors in a masterwork.

Nice. How is the hand of the silk?

It feels nice. Very smooth, resilent and with just a very small hint of crispness, as in my Marinella ties.

If I remember rightly, the edges are beautifully hand rolled, nice and tightly.. I miss those squares. Can't wait to visit Napoli again....

Patrizio told me the squares are designs that are 40-50 years old, if I recall correctly.
