Pocket Squares: A Discussion Thread, Questions, Opinions, Suggestions..... - Page 244

I guess I appreciate a hand sewn edge on a pocket square for the same reason I enjoy hand sewing on a jacket, shirt, buttonhole or pants. You don't need it, but it is a reflection of skilled handwork. Something that we have to make an effort to find on most products. So, essential, "No", enjoyable, "Yes".

NM also had quite few Drakes on sale for Winter as well as summer. I think they brought in a load for their sale. Great prices.

I picked up an SG 'madras' square from Nieman as well . You're missing out SB!

I spent the morning at my son's soccer game and the rest of the day stripping an '80s Alfa Romeo in preparation for its upcoming rollcage installation. C'est la vie. smile.gif

And here's another of our pocket-square ... vintage is always greater than the normal pocket-square. This is to prevent it from slipping into the pocket all the time. And of course it's all hemmed by hand.

^^ Nice square, but why would being vintage prevent the square from slipping down into the pocket?

Vintage silk is usually a bit thinner than newer fabric. Therefore, once folded, it slips down more easily. Making it larger simply allows for more filling of the pocket.

Thank you for explaining, I interpreted greater as in 'better', but now I see he probably meant 'bigger' :)

I also don't own any vintage silk, so I didn't know this and would've never made the connection.

Good answer ... thanks ... even though today is the modern thin silk. But compared to the vintage one has an entirely different feeling. What is difficult to explain in words! Meanwhile, a hand-printed silk vintage still has a quality silk and silk printing significantly higher than the modern.

 

For example, I happened to touch the silk modern English printed again by hand ... but it has nothing to do with that vintage that I have. This is because over the years changing yarn and printing from natural and manual is passed to the chemical and digital.

Totally love the pattern and (especially) the colors by the way!

I think Gianni is saying the vintage print has a larger pattern, yielding a larger hank which is less likely to fall down into the pocket.
