Hi, the green in the pocket square motif is too close to the green in the jacket. Then the green rolex added to the effect. This culminated in my feeling like the look was too deliberate.
preface, sorry to use you as a sounding board, but you verbalized something i have not been quite able to that has been on my mind for a while.
this sums up my issue with PSs, at least the way they are preached here, by in large. it seems the idea is to not really have your PS "match" what you are wearing, but that it still "match" what you are wearing. if there are any duplicate colors it is too "deliberate."
well guess what, pretty much everyone here is "deliberate" about what they wear, very much so as a matter of fact. i mean hell, we come here every day to talk about the deliberate choices we make with our clothing. to try and pretend that ones clothing decisions were anything but deliberate is just tomfoolery (i love that word).
additionally, i generally find that its enough to wear a shirt and tie that are not the same color as each other or the jacket, but still "match." i find when you throw in a PS that is yet another color/pattern, it more often than not just becomes too broad of a landscape, and makes the whole thing less coherent than it would have been without the PS. however, when you have a PS that has an element that draws on another piece of the puzzle, i think it all pulls together much more pleasantly to the eye.
now, maybe i have to be fired from SF for saying that, but thats how i see it. ya'll can hate the matchy match all you want, but sometimes, shit has to match to make sense to the eye. at least most eyes. and while some may say that next level eyes can appreciate all the lack of matching, i think sometimes thats just a bunch of hooey, and people trying to sound/look fancy, when in fact its just dumb.
