Edit: I think a straight/TV fold works fine with those given dimensions (a bit bigger would still be optimal), but I find puffs/points/whatever other sort of fold to be difficult with that sized square, unless the square is hefiter than any I've come across as of yet.

I would like to get opinions of my own work as Alta Sartoria student.

All takes me several hours do do due to extreme tight and closed stitchings.

Big fan of this thread and learned a lot from reading your posts while in production for my own pocket square line. I wanted to get your thoughts on my new company, Gangsterchief. 

Gangsterchief features gritty street photography on limited edition high-end silk pocket squares to raise awareness of gang-related issues.

 
Our first special-edition pocket square is in collaboration with legendary street photographer Robert Yager. All pocket squares are handmade in Downtown Los Angeles and proceeds support community-based organizations who work to reduce and prevent gang violence.

I'm VERY happy with the quality of these squares. I did everything I could to make sure the quality and the hand-rolled edges were perfect, while keeping all manufacturing in Los Angeles. Let me know your thoughts, opinions?

 

 

Gangsterchief,  I like the concept and your commitment to a social cause like that.  Your image choices seem to glorify the thing you're also trying to discourage.  How about squares featuring designs by Black artists?

 

Apropos nothing,  Australian Aboriginal dot paintings would make fantastic square designs.  Shouldn't be too hard to arrange the license.

Thanks, but Marco is another person, lol.

Pocket square recommendation for this?

post #4101 of 4189

I have something pretty similar that I wore once with a plain white linen square.  I also tried it like this:

Thanks, colco. Nice DB version. The challenge, I'd say, is to have a pocket square that stands up to the strong houndstooth pattern but doesn't clash with it and the tie. It's tricky.

I would go with a White PS!

Fantastic! What's the square on the right hand side with the cream background and some text ("Kelmer," etc.)? It looks very interesting but I don't think I recognize the brand.

While I will not answer for Spoo, I will tell you how my squares are organized.

I basically have two stacks, one for more fall/winter type squares (mostly muted colors in wool silk) and the spring summer stack.

Each stack is organized by like colors, so all the browns are together, all of the blues together, with white linen always on top in case I cant make up my mind and go safe.....
