Simple eh?

Thanks Pliny! Step 4 was exactly what I was missing, it works wonderfully!

What color of pocket square, and pattern would work with these ties? Going to use a light blue shirt and a dark grey suit. Would be nice with some help smile.gif

One approach is to pick a pocket square where one of the colors in the pocket square is similar to one of the colors in the tie or the shirt (e.g. red tie, red pocket square, yellow pin dots in tie, yellow pocket square.) Or you can just wear a white pocket square which goes with pretty much everything.

The first tie (pink with dog emblems?) can only easily be worn with a primarily neutral pocket square (like a colored trim at most). Otherwise, the pieces probably would compete with each other.

Question for everyone here. I'm getting married next year and our colours are grey, yellow and purple (not my choice, but I'm happy with it). The bridesmaids will be wearing purple dresses. I am thinking that it would be kind of fun to use the pocket square for the groomsmen to match the dresses, so the groomsmen would have a purple pocket square and I would have a white one (to match the wedding dress). Then the ties would be grey. Is that a no-no? Since the pocket squares would not match the ties or would that be permissible? I must confess that I ask this mainly out of curiosity as to whether it would be SF approved. I am going to do it anyway.

Sounds pretty tacky to me. Sorry.

Ty_Webb, if you would like to coordinate, then I recommend that you find some squares which have a purple element, but not a solid purple square. The most elegant, however, would be white linen in a TV fold for all of the men.

not me, but the look is awesome

I don't think it works well..

I like the green jacket with PS, material and color works together, looks very fall winter.

However with the check shirt, shiny tie, and shiny blue vest, it looks odd to me.

Like the jacket and square. The rest, not so much.

1/3 of the way there and still going strong. smile.gif

But in October I dropped a couple of grand and those items are still arriving in the mail, so I'm still tweaking off last month's high. biggrin.gif

Just some of my indulgences for October:
-Hugo Boss overcoat
-Armani scarf
-a half dozen MyTailor shirts
-Sam Hober pocketsquare
-Etro pocketsquare
-Howard Yount silk knit tie
-Paul Stuart silk knit tie
-Kent Wang tie clip

I like Etro pocket squares for their creative mix of colors and patterns. They are a nice change from the basic patterns that everyone offers.
