This is where I admit the skin isn't mine; I borrowed it from a friend. Its surprisingly soft though.
Also, way out of my comfort zone. People in the street were staring.

That's what what happens to peacocks! Love to know where your friend got it. It's a gem. It's got to be domestically raised, hunting that thing down in the wild would be really hard (even for a skilled rural Latin hunter) and risky as hell.

I bet they did. Those are some scales.

I used to go to a hide wholesaler on the outskirts of the Garment District called Libra Leather on occasion for work. The first time I walked in there I was floored. I think a PETA zealot would find their head exploding.

More DuChamp: invasion of the butterflies rather than peacocks for, tie, pocket square, shirt and cufflinks

... their thick silk ties make a quintuple Windsor variant clunky

 

 

Bracelet is by Paul Smith

I kind of like the tie with this suit, but why the matching hanky?

Thanks, You're right it breaks pocket square convention. Matching a less prominent pocket square against THIS tie ain't easy.

 

To answer you're question, because it was easier.

 

Here's the full Windsor which makes the tie prominent against the pocket square.

Don't get me wrong, I like the the tie and the PS, just not together. Of course it breaks convention, but in this case it's just a little too overwhelming, even for a peacock. How about a simple white or cream square? Or maybe one that picks up one color from the tie? I also think a full windsor would look better with a wider spread collar.

 

Just my 0.02$

Thanks useful tip: my justification (throughout the evening) was theme 'butterflies': butterfly tie, tie pin, pocket square, cufflinks and shirt embroidery. All apart from the tie pin are DuChamps butterflies.

 

I've enough pocket squares to find a more conventional fit (either red/midnight blue, or gold/yellow).

Here's the same setup straight  after an evening out (TAKEN IN A MIRROR), to show it holds up:

 

I need to get the vest refitted

This Givenchy pocket square might fit. I would fold it so only yellow and red are seen (ie centre of ps) using a 'dovetail fold'.

It's beautiful Jacquard silk weave and looks amazing angling the silk against the light. Its possibly the best pocket square I have.

A personal pet peeve I hold is a knot is that is noticeably wider than the front blade.

Hacking...you really need to tie a different knot. Looks like youre auditioning to be an anchor on ESPN. A regular knot, and a different PS would really make this great.
