Your pocket square is angled the wrong way.

Don't like. Consists of only two bold, primary colors. Borders on cartoonish. Make the blue or red more subdued and you'd be okay.

Not in good taste.

All my darker squares are silk, which I think would look stupid with a shantung tie. The square had to be linen or cotton.

No. I don't absolutely hate the red/white shirt and red tie combo, but if you are going to do that, the square needs to be something else--most certainly not a red exactly the same as your tie.

What? Some shiny silk would be to your benefit here.

Vox and I are wearing the same tie, maybe the colors in my pic are off. Anyway, it's Manton's call but can we turn this into more of a picture threak then another 1 picture/50 comments threak?

Other than linen or cotton would take away from the seasonable and casual feeling of the outfit for me.

I'm all for more pics. I can only post one day, though. I'm not going to model just for this.

You probably would have saved a lot of bickering with me had you said this previously.

Foo, out of curiosity, what sort of square might you have chosen had you worn this? I struggle with questions like this, and I likely would have opted for plain white, which may have ended up looking washed out against the color of the suit..

I think white would have been best but I still think the shirt and tie are too close.

Tie is ugly. Square is meh and in a kind of netherworld between too much contrast and too little. It neither complements nor adds anything fresh.

New suit from Frank, Lesser 9oz.

Navy is always in good taste and you can never have enough of it.

hard to tell from that pic. Naturally I don't like the red tie, though I like the pattern. The square, which might be nice in another context, does not work in this one at all. but everything is so washed out that I can't tell too much.
