@clarks - first of all, green+red = Xmas, and wearing that to a Xmas party is too cute/precious. But more importantly, the other items you've got are city/formal/bold colored. You're putting in a muddy earth tone with them. It just doesnt go. The problem is less severe in this recent pic of me, but this is a squarefail IMHO. This tie and ps should never go together:

You have kind of the opposite problem of stitches recent fit posted in the good taste thread, where he had some earthy tones with a navy and white checked shirt.

Thanks for explaining man! I get what you're saying then...would you say the olive green PS wouldn't work with a white shirt either?

Wool and wool and silk blend pocket squares










I was down at J Lawrence Khaki's of Carmel on Sunday and took some pics of just a few of their massive collection of pocket squares. The owner, Jim Ockert, loves accessories so he is a real pocket square kind of guy. I have other pics of silk squares but wanted to show the wool and wool blends that I think are so nice this time of year. If all you have are silk or cotton squares, try a wool or wool/silk blend. You'll enjoy it.

My latest addition, a Rubinacci Samurai Celeste.

Pretty odd that my pocket square collection went from 1 to all these in the space of just a few weeks, as soon as I realised that pocket squares are awesome. (I'm still fairly new.) Mostly Kent Wang & Gieves.

That Rubinacci Samurai PS is just hilariously cool.

You're making it abundantly clear that I need to make a trip down to Carmel. Damn you.

It is worth the drive- the assortment of pocket squares, 25 different makers of ties, awesome socks, exotic skin belts- a sartorial playground for sure. The variety of styles, colors and patterns is what makes this place so cool and where you can develop your own unique look. It is very different than a Barney's, Wilkes or Neimans.

I was trying to select a pocket square for a new jacket and went with some good looking, predictable and safe ones. The owner, Jim, comes by and says,"Here try this. Lets give it some juice"! I love that attitude. That was the pocket square I chose and it looks great.

what sort of belts?

Regarding Simmonot-Goddard: I've tried them and found the linen lovely, finishing smart and prices humorous. When all is fondled and ogled, it's just a piece of fabric. I'd much rather invest in artful prints in the style of Rubinacci and Kent Wang.

Kleinberg exotic skins in a variety of colors and sterling silver buckles. They also carry Martin Dingman for more traditional leather and buckle styles.

They have a great swatch of belts as well that you can order and match a buckle to, I'll take some pictures and post them up while I am down there this afternoon.

Here are more pics of pocket squares I took at Khaki's of Carmel. These are just a few of their silk ones. Their assortment of colors, styles and patterns is amazing. It is so nice to find a place that has such an incredible range of brands and looks.

I'm sure it will turn out to be a phase, but wool/silk blends are the ne plus ultra for me these days. I loves them. I'm also finding that subdued greens and golds are very versatile with my collection of ties which tends toward blue, brown, and burgundy.
