Hi guys!

I have created this short guide to pocket squares recently and published it on amazon. This thread has been a great help. Also I included some feedback from Pocketsquareguy and David Hober.

Today (12/31) is free to download as a kindle book!

http://www.amazon.com/Pocket-squares-men-complete-ebook/dp/B00AO9LL0K/

Hope you will find it useful, especially newbies! Any feedback is helpful!

Thanks and all the best in 2013! biggrin.gif

I especially like the Etro pocket squares in the top photo. They have adventuresome combinations of colors.

I quite like the idea of the circular rack though...

 

I bought a plastic box with a lid on it from Wal-Mart which is just a little bigger than all of my pocket squares. They don't get so wrinkled up in it and I just lay them on top of each other.

Men seem to just look and either smirk or appreciate, women seem to not be able to keep their hands away! Happened to me again at the NY party I went to baldy[1].gif "oh that's nice" as I turn to see this woman pulling out my square and failing at putting it back in. I might start buying polyester ones and charging them up with static.

 Yeah, last week a waitress couldn't stop herself from tugging at my white linen pocket square. I don't know if she wanted to see more of it sticking out or if she just wanted to touch it. biggrin.gif

 

 

 Last night I was wearing a new (but cheap) sport coat I just had tailored and forgot to put a pocket square on it before I put it in the car.

 

 I felt absolutely naked without one.... eek.gif

 I mean it. I almost went to a local Men's Wearhouse for an emergency PS purchase but thought better of it. bounce2.gif

Ha! I was in a wedding not long ago where 2 of the groomsmen forgot their MW squares. I only had one extra hanky on me, so I fashioned the second out of a tissue.  Probably looked better than what it replaced, anyway.

 Just bought a white linen PS with the light blue border from Kent Wang. That'll go good with that sport coat!

  I must admit. The thought of using a tissue did cross my mind... bounce2.gif

I picked up 3 squares from thetiebar.com. I like they have a lot of selection and the prices are cheap. They might not be the best squares around but I think they are a great bang for the buck.
