Pocket Squares: A Discussion Thread, Questions, Opinions, Suggestions..... - Page 249

post #3721 of 3848
So, I have been stuffing my PS into a square jar but want to fold them flat now. Question, how do I get rid of the wrinkles?

They all have wrinkle lines that go down the center of the square where you would pinch and fold when wearing.

Don't worry about the wrinkles—I don't.

 

But if you really care, you could hang them with the pocket square hanging clips available from my site.

 

 

 

If that still doesn't work, you can iron them gently, low temperature, iron the reverse side. You could use a cloth to protect the square, but I don't find it necessary.

Hand drawn in Germany, printed in England. Roll Stitched in England.

 


Beautiful pocket-square

The most common pocket square has to be white linen. I have one from Kent Wang and find myself using it 98 % of the times.

 

Just make sure you purchase one with hand rolled edges, like Kent Wang's. The hand work is really excellent on it.

damn kent wang got nice pocket squares though

I don't find it boring, but stylistically pure, easy to match and not out there.

 

Seeing you're looking for boldness, I may be the wrong guy to ask as I rarely wear something bold. The most bold item I own is Crockett & Jones' Westbourne, which I'm trying to get darker to mute them. But have a look at Patrizio Cappelli's paisley pocket squares. I own some of them. They're bold, but muted color wise. They're madder print.

 

If you're looking for bolder than that have a look at Passaggio Cravatte (user Gianni Cerrutti). He wear bold colors and does an excellent job.

Thank you very much for your kind words.

I have not checked out a Kent Wang pocket square but have sampled a few variants of hand rolled and stitched.  Quite difficult to master I have to say.  Getting a regular hand stitch with a fairly fine hem requires a lot of skill.  A machine stitch on the same hem often repeats on the corners several times to reinforce it - also undesirable on a pocket square.

Silk quality and preference is difficult to quantify remotely.  Best case, would be to sample in person but this may be difficult in practice, especially from suppliers.  My preference from what I have sampled would be satin, thicker grade.  If feels softer and more substantial to the touch.  If the design on the square is fairly uniform then perhaps good to opt for a woven pattern to lift it a little.  Another thing to watch our for in silk is a slipped thread. It runs across the roll and is sometimes only noticeable after the patterning.

Hey everyone, I've been subscribed to this thread as a lurker for a long time now, and I'm constantly blown away by the squares posted here by vendors and users alike. It's always cool to see how everyone likes to stuff their squares as well! I know Seaward & Stearn pops up in here from time to time, so I figured I'd contribute something for once and share our small buy at Drinkwater's for S/S14 from them:

Sorry the pictures aren't anywhere near as beautiful as many posted in this thread, but unfortunately all I have is my phone to take pics for the time being. I tried my best to show the color accurately in the natural sunlight, but I included indoor comparison shots as well in the spoilers. #3 specifically is closer to the turquoise from the inside pic.

Maybe in the future I'll work up the courage to post a fit pic... My square collection is still very humble but growing slowly, and I take a lot of cues from you guys on how to rock it in the pocket icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

:) Guilty, we have the Carpe diem.

Somewhat more diminutive than Big Ben.  Maybe need to aim higher!

Mate, I didn't even consider keeping PS in a jar, not a bad idea I suppose though those wrinkles wouldn't work for me.

I box mine up in the study. Worth a go?

Made it from a small size ladies' scarf. This is the fabric that I used for the PS:

 

 

 

It's a rather coarse textured, non-shiny silk. I got it from a very common chain of batik stores that can be found all over Indonesia.
