I wouldn't try for "flair" in your first couple. Which ones you want really depends on how you dress. PSG had a great post, somewhere in this thread, on 8 pocket squares to get.

Thanks unbel. I think I will update that and repost it. It is getting rather hard to find anything that is more than a couple months old in this thread.

Depending on your ties, a madder silk or wool/silk blend in a large paisley pattern with a burgundy, navy, or dark green ground can be a very versatile hank. Were I starting over, it would be one of my first four or five.

I just bought a burgundy madder that I am waiting to arrive.

Navy and dark green are next up smile.gif

I'm finding this is definitely true. I picked up a Drake's large silk paisley with a navy background and a green, gray, dark red and gold with bits of cream colorway at the Drake's pop-up and I'm finding that it goes with so much! I'm now on the lookout for a square in a wool blend that is as versatile for something more casual.

^Excellent post remains excellent. My own first 8 would probably be different, as I'm less geared towards 'abitofcolor' than Gus, but I have PSs that would fall into all of these categories except maybe #8.

Good stuff, PSG. I have a couple of those in different colorways.

I will reshoot this soon and no doubt the eight will change somewhat. Yet a few will remain the same. Including a few that I've worn since the mid 80's.

+1, I ordered those three colors in madder squares from Sam Hober and they're indispensable during this tweed time of year.

Never really had myself down as style guru but personal preference is, white linen flat top look for biz on blue or black suit. Blue on grey suit. All of these without ties.

if wearing a tie hankie must be identical..very important imho, also only wear on plain jackets.

 

worst look striped shirt with bold tie & different coloured handkerchief on lous pinstripe jacket...unless your charley corrolli or prince charles!

 

So endeth the lesson LOL

I was in Carmel today and stopped by the Robert Talbott store. Honestly, I haven't been very impressed with their ties or pocket squares for many years now but then I saw these. These may be some of their best ever for spring/summer.

^ been there also. They have some nice squares, but the prices are outrageous.
