would a herringbone shirt count as a self stripe? no big d, because i can just use a butcher stripe too if thats too close to rule bending.

@uberlazzgo: (Sorry if username is misspelled) that is very very nice! 

 

I have tried a couple fits and I don't like the end result. confused.gif This is hard.

on this note,
-donegal, nope ( I have seen a vintage donegal stripe I would accept )
-pick n' pick, no
-birdseye, yes MAYBE?
-bi-colour knit ties, sorry, nope
you need a patterned pocket square, a patterned shirt, a patterned tie & a patterned sportscoat/suit or solid sportscoat if you have given yourselfe the extra challenge of patterned trousers.

I will be tough, but fair.

again if in doubt of a fabrics 'patterness', post here for final judgement!

You could always use a sock or a paper napkin, among other possibilities.

It's starting to sound like that, with all these household item options, you are all suckers for paying for pocket squares.

 

ETA:

 

Socks would give me some pattern options. Hmm.

I have no non-white pocket squares. I'll be posting a 3 pattern effort for entertainment purposes only.
post #85 of 423
Do you have a sharpie?

Problem. Solved.
post #86 of 423
Hehe, valid point re: the sharpie, though I suspect that a white pocket square marked up with a sharpie would get no votes anyway. I sure as hell wouldn't vote for me if I did that.
post #87 of 423
I'll guarantee you my and all my socks' votes.

That will get you up to 30 right there.

Can a vest count as one of the four patterns?

interesting. see below, i wonder where a vest falls. what of the core 4 (jacket or pants/shirt/tie/PS) will become solid in swap for the vest? i would think the core 4 have to all be patterened.

I did a solid shirt today and a patterned vest.  Back to the drawing board I guess.
