Do you wear a pocket square? - Page 9

post #121 of 140
For expressive pocket squares, aside from Etro, I highly recommend seeking out the British company Seaward & Stearn. They have beautiful color combinations and patterns. These are the ones when you can show a little more color and flair such as for parties, a wedding reception, travel. They have a nice assortment of changing designs in cotton, silk and wool blends.

But, get your basic colors and patterns first before starting to assemble a range of more colorful and graphic pocketsquares. The expressive ones are nice to have at the right time, but most often I grab one of five or so of my classic colors and patterns. Plus the classics tend to mix and match with more jackets and tie combos ...that is why they are classic.

If you over do it you can begin to look like a patchwork quilt rather than a guy with some style.)

I shared my thoughts based upon my personal style and my circle of friends and associates. But I tend to hang with a more art/fashion/home decor crowd than tech startup guys.

Aren't two problems, one the socialpsychological of antipathy and power, the other an aesthetical, being mixed here too early to clear up the problem?

2. relationship between the individual and the group:

"that guy" who sticks out in a way that looks odd (I've never visited a lodge of Odd Fellows; German "gerade" means straight [even=eben] is used as everyday word for non-odd numbers)
art/fashion/decor versus tech startup are groups in Sunny Land of the Free?

1. the (fundamental) aesthetic problem:
patchwork quilt (expressive sockets, pocket squares, etc.) versus style.


Where a white linen pocket square evokes antipathy must be a domain of quite odd persons - the white linen pocket square must be experienced in normal daily feeling as ultimate conservative classic of purity and hygiene

Opposition between aesthetic tolerance and technological elitist pseudo-casual reveals the latter group (presumably in the free Golden State?) as entindividualised mechanical robots in human bodies?

why costume or clothing is - mobbing ?- problem where no representation or functional aspect is necessary? Sounds like adolescent identity?

Dear Affiliate Vendor,

Me being an affiliate has nothing to do with why I posted, lets get that clear.

Anyway.... I said "huh" simply put because ive followed this thread for sometime and I've not understood a single post youve posted in it. We're talking about pocket squares here, not philosophy or whatever it is your on about.

My opinion is that you've massively over thought this whole thing. Go buy some pocket squares, shove them in your pocket and decide if they are for you or not. Life's complicated enough without bringing pocket squares in to the equation.

Your repentant Northern Hemisphere rowdy

Finally this is coming to an end, I was wondering how much longer it would go on in circles.

 

Many good answers have been provided by different people and yet it feels as if this thread is deliberately being made fun of… Not cool :confused:

Such is life on the internet. Idiots like Naive Jr spring up everyday. That won't change. All that matters is that some of us enjoyed ourselves and got some value from it.
