Nice stuff Dave.

What up with the round PS observation?
post #3497 of 3839
I could be totally off with this one but I believe the round ps recently became famous because of alexander olch... The place he gets them made doesn't have the capability to hand roll the edges of a pocket square, they have some machine that stitches the edges, not like on drake's pocket squares (I'll try to find a picture - posting from my phone at the moment). So I think mr. Olch came up with a great idea to make them round and then the stitched edges wouldn't be out of place, that's just how a round ps is made. Like I said, this could all be just part of my imagination!

Is there anyone from ehaberdasher to contact on SF?

Does anyone know other places to buy Rubinacci pocket squares besides their own website and ASuitableWardrobe?

 

I've ordered two yesterday, and got an email they're both out of stock...

I can't really find a satisfactory replacement in the ones that are available.

 

Preferably looking for a place in Europe, but open to anything.

 

And does anyone know if they'll ever be in stock again? Or are they just a limited run never to be produced again?

Dave-

I'm on my phone and can't make out the details on all of those...is the front one various terriers? Is there another dog one in there? I think last fall Drakes did a wire fox terrier print. I'm looking for an airdale print or something close!

There is a dog one in there. A bit more animated than the one last season.

 

I don't understand the bold.

I meant to say Airedale... as in an Airedale terrier print (the breed). Thanks for the info!

I'm really not a fan of the round pocket square, I find looks like an explosion of silk

Photo grab from Mr. Porter - You can clearly see the machine stitched edges (forgot what the stitch is called, but it's the one to stop fraying!)

 

I wonder which is more economical for the fabric, to cut squares or circles.. squares, right?

The pocket circle is merely an attempt to innovate in an established niche. I suspect the stitching method was chosen to allow for a contrasting edge without requiring the commissioning of custom prints/weaves which incorporate the contrasting circle in the design. There's no reason a pocket circle couldn't have a hand-rolled edge.

The examples I've encountered have been in heavier fabrics like wool and cotton, and they are distinctive in the pocket. I believe a larger pocket circle made out of more typical hank fabrics like silk or the silk/wool that Drakes uses, and hand-rolled, would actually be more subtle and work pretty well.
