So, pocket square in overcoat pocket is also affected?
EDIT: I just went back and read that, Crusty, and cracked up out loud in my cubicle.
Leather gloves in overcoat pocket look affected.
Explosion of thick wool gloves looks ridiculous.
Tasteful pocket square gets my vote. In the early seventies you'd see suede heads in my neighborhood with dark blue and black crombies and alwas sporting a red spotted bandanna in the top pocket. With Ben Sherman shirts, sta pressts or two tone strides, red socks and thick soled brogues I thought it was a great look. (I was still in shorts at the time so make of that what you will!)
An alternative explanation is that it's a convenient place to put your glasses when they're not on your face..
Yeah I get that, I am very sensitive to sunlight ("I have special eyes"!!) so never leave the house without sunglasses. When not on my face they go in my breast pocket, behind my PS, but I don't see the need to hang and arm out ostentatiously like that!
