I don't get the "no points showing" orthodoxy.

Thanks. Which ones are less successful IYO (I have my views too) ?

With very rare exceptions (namely white square with a somewhat formal dark outfit), I can't stand showing points, or any intricate folding for that matter.

I always do a simple folded puff. Easy enough for me and I like the way is softens the look.

I think it looks better points in--both less contrived, and less distracting. That said, I'm very particular about how poofs are done. Nay's poof is good, like what I choose for myself, while Gdl's tend to have too many vertical folds--like a fist coming out of his pocket.

I don't like the ties in 4 and 5. I think 7 would be vastly improved with a (light) gray flannel suit instead of blue.

#4 is my least favorite, but still quite nice.

More of a distant shot - still blah?

Gdl, 1 and 6 are the best in my judgment, with the caveat that I think you really need to change-up the square. Do you generally tend toward small, neat patterns? The small scale tends to be all over your outfits, particularly in your ties and squares. I would go larger on one or the other, and vary the motifs between them more, too.

I particularly don't like nine. Brown tie and brown square?

Admittedly better, but the square is still the weak spot. Assuming you kept everything else the same, what do you think about a dark brown or burgundy square (not necessarily solid)?

Yes, it reminds me of a Hawaiian shirt. If it were a pocket square.

Oddly tropical against the very English Country colors chosen for the rest of the outfit.

Think that's what came in the rubber band?

Although hesitant to play with the Big Dogs, today's fit seemed to work here (iPhone self-portrait):

OK, I'll play...
