Pocket Squares: A Discussion Thread, Questions, Opinions, Suggestions..... - Page 255

post #3811 of 3839

I just ordered one of these. If the quality of their products is as good as their customer service, this could become my go-to place for pocket squares. Not that I really need any more, of course, having over 100 now, but you never know when you'll see one that you somehow decide that you really need to buy.

I do like this – design, typography – but not so much the message. Seeing only a few letters displayed people are bound to ask what it says. I’d love to have one with a favourite personalised quote than a “T-shirt/poster” style motto.

 

I’ve just bought this market scene pocket square from the USA on ebay… should arrive this week.

I noticed that Drakes did a limited edition last year of pocket squares decorated with the covers of Beatles’ albums – would have loved Sergeant Pepper – but they were going for silly money. But how difficult would it be to have your own designs printed up on silk or similar? Impressionist paintings – all sorts of paintings for that matter – spring to mind. Has anyone tried to do this? After all there are lots of ‘print your own T-shirt design’ places. Perhaps I should check one out.

 

Magnificent Mouchoirs do some with maps (including famous golf course maps), musical scores, newspaper page facsimiles… and suchlike. They look fun, but they are all cotton, not silk or linen, which I like.

Having recently decided to add to my collection, I picked up the following in the past week or so...

It is from Put This On's Etsy shop. "William Morris Blue Floral cotton square in various blues with a floral print, including several people and birds. Measures 16"x16", made completely by hand in our studio in Los Angeles. Full, hand-rolled edges."

I really like that blue floral square, very interesting.

 

Here is one of my favourite pocket squares, goes well with some of my more autumnal outfits.

Glad to be of help Cleav. I think if I were to have a map pocket square I would want one of those silk escape maps they gave to bomber crew so that they could find their way back from Stalag Luft XX, if shot down. But a golf course is good even if you have to whip it out every so often to describe your progress round the dog-leg 6th hole.

 

On a completely different note yesterday my granddaughter decided to take all of my pocket squares out of the drawer where they usually lie higgledy-piggledy mixed up, fold them neatly, and then put them carefully back in the drawer. Then she did my ties even though she had to stand precariously on a chair to reach the tie rail. Who needs a valet when there are such helpful grandchildren? I can't wait until she is old enough to polish shoes.

 

I'm having lunch tomorrow with an artist friend who I know has just done a print making course - I am going to investigate this idea of having my own bespoke pocket squares made up.

Fabulous read Jay and charming to boot. You're rightly proud with good reason!

Regarding your meeting tomorrow If economies of scale are called for then...

What a novel idea for a PS, I'd also be very interested in one of these. I have a vague recollection of my grandfather telling me about such maps. Very interesting indeed.

 

In regards to your impressively enviable collection of squares, and the adorable young lady who sorted them, you are very lucky on both counts.

Hi guys - how much should I be paying for a reasonably priced pocket square, and any recommended shops? Hoping to add more colour to the wardrobe.
Looked through the last 8-10 pages or so and didn't see much coverage of this Q actually. thanks!

As much or as little as you wish.

Prices range from $15 to $125 and sometimes up from there. My collection includes inexpensive, no-name hanks and expensive StyFo-darling brands (purchased at a discount because I like my money). For something that doesn't touch your skin and is only partly visible, I think the hank is a reasonable place to be price-sensitive. They're great pieces to pick up secondhand on eBay or at local consignment shops.
