 I'd say that would be a fair estimate...happy.gif

Id have to say I don't see many squares out in the wild although I wouldn't say id run into many people that actually dress well. When I do go to the city center or the nicer areas I still cant say I see many people sporting squares.

This is a factually accurate description of the position in the legal profession in London, which one might expect to be more traditional.  They are very few and far between.  No longer UCBD.

Chivalry alone is the reason to wear a pocket square. Also, when offered to a person in need, you don't ask for it back later.

Agreed. In fact when I was younger, women were known from time to time to fake a make-up emergency as an excuse to snag the PS of a guy that they were particularly interested in.

some of these pocket squares look like they have already been used for that make up emergency and then haphazardly jammed in the breast pocket!!!rotflmao.gif

Yeah I agree pocket squares are absolutely useless, like bijouterie or watches. Those are only excuses for stuffed persons to get rid of more cash and to have some senseless hobby and excuse to buy more 'stuff'.

What a rouge comment.

The issue with pocket squares is that they turn, "wow, that's a nice outfit," into "wow, you're wearing a pocket square."

While I can agree with this statement in some circumstances, it's not always the case. If it's not too ostentatious, it's just fine. Compliments everything well. 

 

I don't wear them to job interviews, but just about everywhere else.

I wear a white linen one if the occasion is formal enough to call for it. I used to wear them regularly, now i wear them very rarely. They too often turn a well dressed person into a character.

+1 for the most part. I've been wearing them less often recently, especially with more casual looks.

They can at times but I think white linen tends to be pretty subtle. If I wear a pocket square, it's generally white linen and I'll typically wear it with a suit, tuxedo or navy odd jacket and tie. I've never been able to get behind the various silk prints and other designs. I see some people do great things with them but I just don't have the patience for it.

Really? I get the feeling pocketsquares are a lot less common in the US than in continental Europe. How often would you say you see a person wearing a PS?

I'll say, besides a wedding, I've never seen one. I think ever. And that's only in people that are in the wedding. 

 

Even with Mad Men, I've never seen anyone with a linen square. I may be the only one.

Pretty rare here in Chicago too. When I lived in New York, I'd say they were a good bit more common.

Yeah. Let's keep in mind I'm in AZ. PS means a SC/Suit/Blazer. We're more Scottsdale trends. Saran wrap shirts, contrast stitching, dye-injected buttons, boat shoes.
